Reinventing how people learn and develop language skills!

We are confident we have the right combination of programs, support, and structure that ANYONE (Including YOU) can use to gain the confidence and knowledge to effectively and comfortably communicate in English at work.  And the Best part is you can start today for FREE!

Although there are many language training programs and teachers available, the sad truth is that the majority of workers do not have the language skills needed to advance at work and live a better life.  At Learn with Hoopla, we realized that until there was a system developed to address students fears; provide tangible results and supports them through the learning process, it was unlikely there would be any change.

Why Learn with Hoopla?

What Makes Us Different?

Does this situation sound familiar?  Have you tried to improve your English skills, perhaps you have even learned lots of new words, only to realize you still can’t understand what someone is saying?  So, what happened?  Did you get frustrated and give up?  If so, it’s not your fault, it happens a lot, even to great students who study hard and have worked with a language teacher. And here is why….

Lots of time when we start learning a new language,  people want to teach us words that they think are important or interesting to us – but that’s not the best way – lots of those words are infrequently used and you end up knowing the names of lots of things – but still can’t form a sentence or understand what someone is saying. 

Although the  average native English speaker knows between 15,000 – 20,000 words – and have spent years learning that vocabulary, would you believe that you could understand nearly 50% of spoken English by knowing the “right” 100 most frequently used words? 

Sounds crazy right?  But the research shows a student can comprehend nearly 50% of basic communications with only 100 of the most frequently used words as they are repeated in the majority of conversations. 

In fact, after this was written in English, we went back and counted the words before we translated it- there was a total of 313 words – 192 of these were the “100 most common words” and 121 other words…. So more than 50% of the words in this example were in the 100 most common words.

To improve your English,  it’s not about finding more time to learn more words, it’s about mastering the core words and using your time effectively by being selective about the words that will have the biggest impact on your life.

In other language programs you would likely learn words you might use only once or twice a month or even in a year…. But with Learn with Hoopla you will first learn and master the 100 core words you will use EVERY day and in most cases in EVERY English conversation. 

The Learn with Hoopla Approach

Learn with Hoopla offers engaging online course that you can easily fit into your life…. Its not about “finding more time” but instead using your “waiting time”…. In fact, a full lesson will take less then 10 minutes to complete on your cell phone – so you can do it anywhere, including waiting in line or riding on transit!  

Each lesson is full of interactive exercises, no boring memorization!  Lessons are full of colourful images, quality audio, and fun exercise to allow you to challenge your memory, as you develop and strength your listening and speaking skills.

  1. Generation Effect – this technique has proved testing is a better learning tool than an assessment tool. Research shows you should start testing your knowledge with practise tests before you even begin to study.  It turns out when you make a mistake and then later learn you were wrong, your brain is far more likely to remember the correct answer.
  2. Mixed Practise – Mixing up or varying the challenge you are working on has huge benefits.  It makes the brain deal with the knowledge in a broad sense vs just memorizing it… although this can sometimes be frustrating as you might not feel you are ready for some of the challenges… long term it really pays off and speeds up learning.
  3. Memory “brain hacks” – memory training concept to encode, store and retrieve vocabulary using pictures and word association techniques. It’s not only effective,  but also makes learning lots of fun as you use your imagination.
