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.

fleoo.net wins BUS2BUS Pitch 2019

Dear LearnMatch friends,

 

fleoo.net wins BUS2BUS Pitch 2019 with Vision Education as a strong partner on board!

On March 19th, 2019, BUS2BUS took place in Berlin. The Startup Pitches jury – consisting of journalists, venture capital donors and representatives of the bus industry – awarded startup fleoo.net with the first prize. fleoo.net convinced the jury of the innovation enshrined in its language learning and navigation app for bus drivers, which is based on the phase6 Berufe app and developed by Vision Education.

What is fleoo.net?

fleoo.net knows that international drivers are crucial for the modern bus industry. However, in their opinion, a lack of language and local knowledge poses a problem, as it leads to extended and unproductive training periods and causes expensive mistakes. The fleoo assistance package overcomes language barriers, promotes language competence, documents progress and, for example, gets bus drivers work-ready in no time. fleoo.net also helps to prevent 96% of mistakes.

How exactly does the app work?

fleoo.net is divided into fleoo.nav, fleoo.com and fleoo.ml. fleoo.nav supports bus drivers to manage scheduled services, learns all stops and danger points and helps inexperienced drivers stick to the timetable. fleeo.com networks dispatching, traffic management and drivers, provides pictures and position data. In this way, language barriers are managed easily and faults are reported correctly. fleoo.microlessons enables drivers to train in their chosen language independently of time and place. Technical terms are learned and the exchange of information with passengers is facilitated.

But what is BUS2BUS?

As a high-end platform for bus companies, bus manufacturers, suppliers, service providers and visionaries, BUS2BUS helps to enliven the industry with new ideas and solutions. BUS2BUS functions as a combination of a trade fair with a comprehensive range of products, a congress and a Future Forum, at which new future markets are jointly developed.

We are very proud to be part of this success story and wish to continue to share such victories with our partners in the future.

Dear friends and partners of LearnMatch!
