Kaplan International Colleges, a well-established provider of English language courses to international students, will be a primary sponsor of the Year of English project running throughout 2013 with a free daily English-learning e-mail course.
Aaron Knight, the founder of PhraseMix, was inspired to create Year of English following the success of the Code Year project launched in 2012 to help people who were interested in learning how to do programming. Aaron believes that for many people “learning English is a vague goal that they hold on to for years and years but never quite achieve.” He goes on to say that “I wanted to give these English learners the motivation to make a big push toward becoming fluent this year. I also wanted to give them the tools to do that with daily lessons".
People keen to learn English are encouraged to sign up with their e-mail via the Year of English homepage. Registrants will receive a daily English lesson, study tip or assignment including Kaplan English grammar exercises. These lessons will be based on a number of how to learn English posts from the Kaplan blog.
