Voxy and University of Maryland Center for Advanced Study of Language Announce Research Partnership to Find Effective Ways of Tailoring Language Instruction to Match Cognitive Profiles

Voxy and University of Maryland Center for Advanced Study of Language (CASL) have announced plans to launch a joint empirical study to measure the effects of different instructional approaches on learners with distinct cognitive profiles. This strategic partnership represents an opportunity for breakthrough findings on how to effectively teach foreign languages, personalize language learning, and identify individuals with a high potential for advanced language learning success. In the seven-month study, in addition to using Voxy's online English course, study participants will be given four assessments from CASL's Hi-Level Language Aptitude Battery (Hi-LAB), including tests that measure working memory capacity and the ability to learn new information implicitly. The Hi-LAB assessments measure how the participants' brains work when learning a foreign language. The results will help to identify what teaching methods will lead to the high proficiency gains for individual learners. Voxy will be the first private company to use Hi-LAB's cognitive assessments as a way to tailor instruction based on brain activation during language learning. With its personalized language curriculum, the ability to reach hundreds of thousands of language learners around the world, and its cutting-edge technology platform, Voxy is uniquely positioned to test multiple instructional approaches for each learner.
