The EnglishHelper series of English learning programmes

INaWORD announces the EnglishHelper™ range of English learning courses

INaWORD is pleased to introduce the EnglishHelper™ range of English learning programmes. These courses help to build the learners’ abilities in reading and vocabulary, grammar and speaking.

The courses are based on the ReadToMe™ (RTM) technology, a computer-based approach in which the learners work at computer terminals at the INaWORD language lab in Adyar, each learning at a level suited to their ability.
