Novakid is an English as a Second Language (ESL) EdTech platform that utilizes AR/VR, machine learning and gamification technologies. Today it is the number one online English school in Europe, offering individual lessons for children aged between 4 and 12 years old.
To get an accurate assessment of the child’s knowledge, we analyze 1,500 ‘micro-skills’ through the use of machine learning and AI technology. For example, we monitor how well the child has mastered a particular grammatical structure,whether he/she often forgets words or pauses in their speech.
The technology-driven approach neutralizes external factors and eliminates possible inaccuracies in the assessment. This being said, our teachers are involved in the grading process after a student has completed a set number of lessons.
Our digital-only curriculum offers individual 25 minute lessons with a qualified teacher. This gamified learning platform includes virtual 360-degrees tours, in-lesson games, creative homework assignments, animated comic stories and a rewards dashboard that ensure that our young students remain engaged in the learning experience.
Our passionate, professional teachers will open the exciting world of the English language to your child. They are native speakers with at least two years of teaching experience.
All of our teachers are certified ESL specialists with experience in online teaching to children.
We practice the Total Physical Response (TPR) approach with gestures, facial expressions, and movements.
