EnglishCentral aims to become the premier, web-based conversational English language learning destination for desktop and mobile users.
They focus on helping users with their spoken English, using proprietary speech recognition technology that "listens" to users' speech and then scores that speech based on their pronunciation and syntax. They allow users to choose content they love, from a massive database of video content covering popular subject areas (e.g., travel, sports, politics, business, movies) and existing popular content (e.g., Obama's speeches).
