Open English, a leading English-learning platform in the Latin American and US Hispanic markets, provides live, online instruction to over 2 million enrolled students, has recently announced that it is expanding its offering of live tutoring in additional languages.
With the launch of Open Mundo, students can take live online classes available 24/7 with native-speaking teachers in French, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese. With many businesses struggling to retain top talent, a robust and strategic benefits package is key to ensuring an organization’s success, making Open Mundo an optimal solution for businesses in search of unique benefits for their employees.
Commenting on the newly launched initiative, Founder and CEO of Open English, Andres Moreno, said:
If employers add Open Mundo as a voluntary benefit option, they’re opening the door to new opportunities for its employees while improving their lives. Our goal with Open Mundo is to provide the same experience we’ve provided to over two million Open English students: learning something that will last and benefit them for a lifetime.
The COVID-19 pandemic radically shifted the employment and corporate benefits landscape; businesses have increased the benefits they’re offering employees by an average of 22% compared to 2019, and a one-size-fits-all approach no longer works regarding employee benefits. Open Mundo allows employers to differentiate their benefits packages and remain competitive in acquiring and retaining top talent. At the same time, employees can improve their personal and professional lives by gaining a new skill at little or no cost to them.
Open Mundo is an immersive language learning platform that offers live online French, Spanish, Italian and Portuguese classes with native-speaking teachers. Based on Open English’s experience, trajectory and educational quality, it launched in Latin America in 2022 to expand language teaching beyond English.
Headquartered in Miami, FL, with offices in Mexico City, Bogota, Buenos Aires, Istanbul, Bangalore and São Paulo, Open English empowers its students to lead better lives by giving them the language and digital skills they need to succeed. The platform’s parent company offers customized learning solutions for businesses (Open English for Business), children (Open English Junior), and digital skills development (NextU). With more than 15 years of experience, Open English has become a key employee benefit to over 10,000 companies worldwide whose employees are learning English with the platform.
