Models conquer the fashion world with ModelManagement.com and LearnMatch

english4modelsInternational cooperation between ModelManagement.com and LearnMatch has resulted in an innovative concept called “English4Models”. A common goal is to ease communication between agencies, clients and colleagues. The elimination of language barriers and the development of an industry-specific vocabulary ensures more successful castings and thus successful international careers. A collaboration between the revolutionary online model community from Barcelona and our language learning app is thus forging a new path for interest-based language learning.

What does a model need in the 21st century?

The modelling world is more diverse than ever. All the models of today need not only great charisma and other prerequisites, but they also need an understanding of the business of modelling and the main language of the industry – English. Moreover, the fashion industry has always struggled with the recurring problem of the lack of English skills of many of its up and coming models.

A considerable number of careers fail due to insufficient communication between international companies and models. ModelManagement.com and LearnMatch have addressed this problem to render it easier for newcomers to enter and thrive in the fashion industry. Established models can also benefit from this concept. They are enabled to refresh their English skills and fill in knowledge gaps relating to the Dos & Don’ts of the fashion industry.

What does the English4Models content include?

ModelManagement and LearnMatchEnglish4Models includes vocabulary specific to the fashion industry as well as general industry knowledge. In addition, users have access to specially produced videos produced by the Model Academy. These videos allow experienced models to accompany and advise those who are still unsure whether and how they dare enter the industry. Through the use of multimedia content, models are motivated to stay focused and continue to hone their skills. The content produced by the Model Academy is coordinated with learning content from the English4Models course. These two modules complement each other and are perfectly suited to deepen the learning of users. Successful models reveal essential insights from their modelling experience. That way they help newcomers to gain a foothold in the modelling business.

 

With great English skills and stunning charisma, an international career must be round the corner. We are convinced that future graduates of the Model Academy and the English4Models courses will find many doors opening. Moreover, dissatisfied customers at castings will soon be a thing of the past.

comenius award 2020

COMENIUS AWARD 2020

LearnMatch recieved the Comenius Award! The jury of the European Comenius EduMedia Competition 2020 has once again awarded our language learning app with a Comenius EduMedia Seal. This time in the category ‘Mother and Foreign Language Education’.

Education in times of Corona

In 2020, 183 manufacturers, publishers, projects and authors from 14 European countries from Iceland to Cyprus had their digital educational products subjected to rigorous quality checks. Digital educational media are judged primarily on their technical and didactic qualities. A distinction is made within digital educational media in terms of Didactic Multimedia Products, General Multimedia Products, Teaching and Learning Management Systems and Computer Games with Competence-promoting Potential.

It has been a highlight of our year to participate in the award ceremony at the Chameleon Theatre during this year of Comenius EduMedia’s 25th anniversary. The ceremony has been presented via video livestream from Berlin. This enabled participants to follow the announcement of the seal of approval and the presentation of the Comenius EduMedals live and in colour. This year, Corona Special Prizes were also awarded in recognition of the special work done by many organisations to adapt swiftly to changing times.

What is the Comenius EduMedia Award?

commenius-award-2020

The Comenius EduMedia Award was founded in memory of the pedagogue Johann Amos Comenius (1592-1670). Comenius is recognised worldwide as a pioneer of popular and child-oriented education, His key focus was the systematic use of images and vividness for didactic purposes.

The Comenius EduMedia Award honours innovation and excellence within the field of digital educational media. The Society for Pedagogy, Information and Media (GPI) honours outstanding digital educational media within the field of work, education, school, culture and leisure. The awards are presented across four categories on the basis of the quality criteria of GPI’s IB&M.

We are already looking forward to the 26th award ceremony in 2021 and are confident that all participants will be in good health to celebrate their successes together.

We were voted among the best startups in the world!

LearnMatch made it into the top 5 at the 2020 EdTechXGlobal Startup Award! The innovative language learning app is once again among the best startups in the world. The award was given out on the basis of innovation and growth. 

 

 

 

LearnMatch made the grade alongside GoSkills, Perlego, MobieTrain and tiney, and now numbers among the best startups in the world. The EdTechXGlobal Startup Award is a great recognition and incentive for our whole team.

 

 

What is EdTechX Europe?

EdTechXEurope is the learning community’s largest get-together. It took place for the 8th time in 2020.  This year it was organized as an online event, due to measures relating to COVID-19. The winners of the award had to do without attending the award ceremony in person this year. The award was presented in three categories: EdTechXGlobal Scale-Up Awards, EdTechXGlobal Impact Awards and EdTechXGlobal Startup Awards. LearnMatch was nominated in the last category. Nominees were judged on two main criteria: the most significant innovation and most growth in 2019. A global panel of experts had to consider a number of key factors. This is how the finalists and winners of EdTechXGlobal Startup were decided.

 

Level up!

The innovative LearnMatch app took part in the global competition last year, too, and achieved an excellent ranking. In 2020, LearnMatch set itself the task of becoming even more future-oriented and of showing and paving new pathways in education for adults and children. ‘Making education accessible for all’ is the company’s motto, which was repeatedly recognized and rewarded by the international jury of experts. This enabled the company to exceed its ranking from the previous year and secure a place among the top 5. 

The LearnMatch team congratulates the winners in each individual category. We are looking forward to the future we share and hope that we’ll all be able to celebrate our shared successes together once again next year. 

Partnership with the Austrian Construction Guild

Vision Education is delighted by its partnership with the Austrian Construction Guild. Thanks to its ‘LearnMatch Business’ language-learning tool, it is now offering specialist German vocabulary for the construction industry

The construction trade is, without question, one of the most important drivers of the Austrian economy. One of the core points of the Federal Guild of Construction’s mission statement revolves around the transfer of knowledge. As part of further training courses, special attention is paid to teaching German in an industry-specific way.  ‘LearnMatch Business’ is considerably improving and, at the same time, making the communication among employees at the construction industry’s professional association much easier. 

Multilingualism on construction sites? No problem!

The construction industry is indisputably one of the sectors of the country’s economy that are known for their international workforce. According to the monthly figures published by the BUAK (the Construction Workers’ Leave and Severance Fund), in 2019, a total of around 130,000 people were employed by Austrian companies. 37% (about 50,000) of these employees come from countries such as Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Serbia, Macedonia, Turkey, Bulgaria, Poland, or Hungary.

This makes construction sites a place of multilingualism. German is nevertheless considered to be the primary language of communication there. The technical vocabulary offered by LearnMatch Business was created in close collaboration with the Austrian construction industry. It offers the ideal industry-specific solution in this regard. Ultimately it guarantees that work can proceed smoothly. The language that is being learned, German, is taught bilingually with 17 different native languages.

Digital learning to boost both understanding and productivity

Thanks to the partnership WITH the Austrian Construction Guild and Vision Education, employees from an array of countries can receive tailor-made vocabulary and language training in their own native tongue. The ‘LearnMatch’ app’s intuitive and playful user interface enables them to quickly learn basic vocabulary related to everyday life.  But they can also build up specialist vocabulary. 

As the saying goes: if you want to build a tall tower, you need to spend a long time on the foundation. And in this case, the foundation is the language we have in common.

LearnMatch App shines in new splendor

LearnMatch App shines in a new splendor and design. Learning through play has always been very important to us. It has increasingly proven to be the right way to motivate learning. With the redesign of both the LearnMatch App and the LearnMatch Business App, this trend was continued with a stronger focus on the user experience. State-of-the-art design meets optimized functionality: all exercise types now have an even larger and more legible font size, and the content and navigation through the app is now even more intuitive and user-friendly.

Design Innovations

The LearnMatch App now features a consistent design, simplified and clear user interface with only 5 main areas (Training, Dictionary, LiveMatch, Ticker and Profile) and Lino, our language trainer. The easier handling of the app increases the fun factor. At the request of our users, we have also adapted the font size and made it easier to read. Due to the new design the LearnMatch App shines in new splendor, but also the fun factor didn’t get neglected.

Monthly contests

Up to now there have been new prizes to win every month in the Kicker Challenge. Because our audience is getting bigger and bigger worldwide, we have now agreed on prizes within the app to make it logistically better and easier to implement. Diligent practice is now more important than ever.

Motivation as the most important driving force

Also new are the various training animations. Thus, learners are increasingly motivated to have more fun during training. The learning experience is really cool because of the direct feedback.

Practice when and most importantly WHAT you want

From now on, our users can choose the vocabulary they want to practice or not practice. This allows us to focus more on individual wishes and needs.

Record progress continuously

With the new design, the progress in learning each word is continuously recorded. You can also see how many words are ready to be repeated. Above all, the progress in the individual sub-chapters is also displayed. Last but not least it remains to say that there are now learning stars for the learned vocabulary and points, which in turn are important for the ranking.

We can’t wait to see how the app’s new features are received by our loyal users and are looking forward to any kind of feedback.
