Growth and expansion plans for Polygled:
For the upcoming year of 2020 Polygled platform is announcing a series of initiatives designed to provide further rapid development.
An important strategic direction is the accreditation of the platform for issuing certificates of foreign language proficiency. Today such certificates are given out by authorized commissions. Currently Polygled is actively working with such commissions to obtain the right to conduct language exams. An additional advantage for all Polygled users is the free access to language skills tests. They will determine the level of language proficiency based on the requirements of authorized language commissions.
The platform also plans to work on expanding and deepening its geographical presence. “One of the initiatives is to form new strategic partnerships aimed at expansion of existing presence in the regions of LATAM, China and both central and Southeast Asia. The aim is to increase the number of platform users in accordance with the needs of each particular region. Another expansion step for Polygled in 2020 is to partner with schools and universities from around the world to collaborate in the Class module. Class module is the practical application of e-learning and distance learning technologies. It introduces the “inverted class” concept and it represents modeling and practical implementation of students' verbal behavior in a bilingual environment” — states Tatyana Chibinyaeva, Founder and CEO at Polygled.
