For Students
Planet English uses the latest in multimedia and information technology to support students who wish to learn English for International Communication.

Planet English is an exciting, high-tech, interactive way of learning English. It contains more than 40 hours of video and audio recordings, over 2,500 original graphics, 3,000 interactive screens and 80 different activity types including real time student voice recordings.

Planet English includes videos and audios set in realistic social, study, travel and business scenarios providing students with opportunities to immediately compare their language and pronunciation with that of English speakers from around the world. Planet English offers a rich range of spoken communication and gives learners the opportunity to "virtually interact" with English speakers.

 
   
 

For Teachers
Planet English was designed to present authentic spoken language through realistic scenarios by a team of highly qualified and experienced English language teachers from The University of New South Wales. It uses a blend of proven methodologies and exploits the benefits of the latest Computer Assisted Learning technologies. Language is taught in context and is carefully graded and recycled through a variety of highly interactive activities.
     
Planet English is more than just a computer program. It includes a package of resources to complement any English language teaching program. Teachers can easily integrate Planet English with classroom activities using the detailed Teacher's Manual and Student Workbooks.

Teachers can also manage the learning experience for students using the unique Planet English Courseware Management System (CMS). The CMS allows teachers to tailor courses to their syllabus and to students' needs by "mapping" content for classes or individuals. Activities and exercises that are relevant to the centre's syllabus are then delivered to students in the appropriate lesson, ensuring students "navigate" to the right area of the program each lesson.

The Planet English Assessment program also allows teachers and students to track improvements in language proficiency progressively and through formal, automated assessment instruments.
