English and lifeskills for service sector employability

rigorous, integrated, personalized, research-based blended learning of English to deliver critical communication and employability skills

English is now a vocational skill required for socioeconomic mobility

a government of India study, National Employability Report-Graduates 2013 reveals that, “nearly 47% of the graduates were found not employable in any sector, given their English language and cognitive skills.”

in our country with multiple languages, socio-economic mobility is higher for those who speak English than those who do not. This is amplified by the reality that India’s farm-based economy is transitioning to one where the service sector will play a significant and crucial role. English is now a vocational skill that needs far more attention and innovation than it currently receives.

most English training products in the market today utilize in-class training, apps and blended learning, focusing on the fundamentals of English. Despite being highly priced, most of them are unable to deliver on the promise of meeting student expectations because of critical missing pieces. Learning English is a behavioral problem statement that needs solutions rooted in human centered design and based on behavioral economics.

“I was scared of talking to people earlier because I did not have confidence to speak in English. After taking Future Perfect classes, I am not only speaking in English, but also confident to face any interview. The classes helped me to not only convey my ideas and express myself in English freely, they also helped me in building skills like teamwork, effective resume writing and workplace etiquette.”
