Said Frédéric Magnin, Head of marketing at ESL, “ESL knows all about immersion, as it is at the heart of what we do to help people learn a language. With English Attack!, that immersion can now start the moment someone signs up for one of our Language Study Abroad packages, and can prolong the learning experience long after the study trip has concluded. As such, it is the perfect complement to our physical learning immersion activities, and represents a major new benefit for our customers. “
Added Entertainment Learning Co-founder Paul Maglione: “Few education companies understand language learning as well as ESL. For years they have represented the highest quality in language study trip design, value, and customer service. They were also among the very first to understand how English Attack! was changing the game in online language learning, so we are pleased and very proud to be part of this partnership announcement today.”
