Dubai, United Arab Emirates, October 28, 2015 -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- To commemorate the much awaited 44th UAE National Day, Eton Institute introduces Social Learning, a new method of language learning, which allows language enthusiasts to learn Emirati Arabic words or phrases daily via Whatsapp and other popular social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, YouTube, Google+ and Pinterest.
Eton Institute, a leading international language & professional development training provider, offers daily Emirati Arabic learning treats by sending a word or phrase with its English transliteration to signed-up Whatsapp subscribers. The Word or Phrase of the Day will also be posted as a video on YouTube and as an image on other social media platforms.
As part of its Mobile Learning programs, Eton Institute promotes spontaneous language learning on the go, where learning a language is as easy as checking your phone.
According to a survey on the use of social media in higher education by Seaman and Tinti-Kane of The Research in Learning Technology (2014), over 80% of teachers are using social media, where 70% use social media at least once a month; 41% of which use social media for teaching. According to a recent study by the eLearning Guild, 54% of learners agree to include social media for learning to complement existing teaching methods.
“The role of social media to aid in teaching a language is phenomenal, tapping the readily available platforms everyone has access to these days, and the UAE leads the way in the use of smart devices. With over 76% penetration, more than three out of four people in the UAE are using smartphones,” commented Sue Brett, VP of Sales & Marketing at Eton Institute. “Eton Institute has always been a forward thinker in making learning easy and accessible. What better way to celebrate UAE National Day than raising awareness of the wonderful Emirati culture and language through the UAE's preferred mediums - vemes and memes through social media?,” she added.
