How It Works
A simple method to communicate across languages and build friendships
The Language Discovery methodology allows students to find a direct, autonomous motivation to their learning and fosters a mutually supportive learning environment with powerful peer learning potential. It is effective in motivating a broad range of students to want to learn languages other than English. Children quickly aspire to communicate more with their overseas friends, and students' motivation for continued language learning arises from this aspiration.
Palaygo is structured into four Step-Up programs to actualise this value proposition:
The four steps, (Mail, Home, Talk, Tour) are a progression of real experiences and increasing communication skills. The new and exciting discoveries students make through this real communication process stimulates their self-interest and motivation to learning other languages and cultures.
Students establish contact with overseas peers at school where they nurture their interests in each other as well as their language and cultural knowledge.
Students can extend the above activities, and personalise their relationship at home, together with their family members and siblings
Students can proceed to talking and seeing each other in real-time, enabling them to further their relationships and enhancing their oral communication skills
Students can opt to travel to their online friends’ countries and home stay and visit their schools.
