English Learning Leap Programme
— Background and breakthroughs
to give your child a head start
Students participating in the programme will, under the guidance and supervision of their teachers, adopt a well-developed adaptive learning methodology to improve their learning efficiency.
The EHLA programme, with the support of key educational AI technologies, aims to remove bottlenecks in the current approach to teaching English to non-English speaking students and to break through the limitation caused by the lack of a language environment. In short, EHLA’s programme aims to achieve learning results hitherto considered impossible.
To help relatively weak students increase their school grades by 30% to 50% within 6 months.
To help students with average grades to improve their school performance by 10% to 15% within 6 months.
To help elite students perfect their language proficiency, particularly in the areas of writing, reading and speaking, and prepare them for entry to the rich world of English literature.
Team and background
A team of leading educators, linguists, artificial intelligence (AI) experts and senior frontline teachers has been working together for years on a unique learning and teaching ecosystem, underpinned by a well-developed adaptive learning methodology, a number of pivotal and state-of-the-art AI technologies as well as authoritative content resources. The aim of the team has been to achieve a major breakthrough in improving the effectiveness of how English is taught to non-English speaking students and the efficiency with which these students learn.

Top-notch English Educational Content R&D
Authoritative Quality Management
Quality management is part of the painstaking process of making EHLA teaching and learning resources.
'Consistent', 'Trustworthy' and 'Authoritative' - all three of these are essential ingredients in building up the EHLA brand, and making EHLA teaching and learning resources the go-to place for improving educational performance.
Breakthroughs brought by AI education technologies
Adaptive Learning Methodology
Remove the bottlenecks of traditional learning and teaching mode
Through years of research in the Adaptive Learning Methodology, plus the substantial progress made in the application of AI education technologies, EHLA has broken through many bottlenecks arising from traditional learning and teaching mode, allowing teachers to promptly grasp the students' problems and weaknesses precisely, and intelligently assist teachers to work out specific learning plans for them. Meanwhile, learners benefit much from a highly personalized and intelligently tailored learning and teaching solution. They can learn whenever and wherever they like.
When learning English, the importance of being able to listen and read out loud is recognised as an important factor in developing a native-speaker accent. However, it is also recognised that the lack of a language environment severely limits a student’s ability to practise in these two areas.
Breakthrough achieved by AI
Through AI, students can instantly turn printed text into a native-speaker American or British accent audio book. They can do read-along exercises, with instant AI evaluation of their pronunciation. Students now have the opportunity to practise and improve their pronunciation wherever and whenever they like.
At the same time, EHLA's listening training method also makes it easier for students to make significant progress in their learning.
Boosting Core Vocabulary
One of the commonest causes of weakness in English is lack of vocabulary.In principle, the best way to build up vocabulary is through reading as much as possible. But in reality, weak students are less willing to read because they lack the necessary vocabulary, which leads to a vicious circle. This problem has long plagued the education arena.
Breakthrough achieved by AI
Through intelligent diagnosis and tracking, EHLA can formulate a highly efficient learning path for students which will quickly boost their vocabulary. After that, students can consolidate what they have learned by using EHLA’s well designed multi-dimensional reading programme.
Grammar is one of the foundation stones of good writing, and it often appears as a topic in exams. Many students are unable to understand what grammar they have learned, and this, together with a limited vocabulary, makes further learning increasingly difficult. Teachers, often with limited resources, find it difficult to help students progress.
Breakthrough achieved by AI
Student weaknesses are identified scientifically and systematically through an intelligent diagnosis and tracking process. EHLA then creates a special learning path for each student which focuses on eliminating these weaknesses, and replaces rote learning. The advantage of this focus is that it makes it easier for students to digest, compare and summarise their mistakes.
Evidence shows that when a student’s vocabulary falls below the level required, it is difficult for them to do well at reading comprehension.
On the basis that boosting a student’s vocabulary improves their reading performance, training in higher-order thinking reading skills will also raise student reading levels.
Improving one’s writing skills, along with constant reading, and brainstorming structure and language, sits up there with vocabulary building and a sound knowledge of grammar as one of the fundamental building blocks of being able to do well as a student of English. Writing in this programme is a comprehensive training process.
