Company / App Name: eikaiwaNOW
What does it do?
eikaiwaNOW is a GPS-based smartphone application that connects English Conversation Students and Teachers in Japan. This smartphone App features real-time Teacher location mapping, search, and direct messaging for instant Lesson requests.
Why do we need it?
Japan is one of the leading countries in a global economy, but its English education is so behind compared to other countries. Our App is created to boost Japanese English skill by connecting English Conversation Teachers and Students.
Who is it for?
It is definitely for Japanese students. A lot of them are able to read and write English, but they are not used to communicate in English. Our App is created for them to practice English Conversation.
What makes it stand out from the crowd?
There are many English learning Apps in Japan to help you learn vocabularies and new phrases and practice reading, but nothing is to match Teachers and Students to practice conversational English.
In the future, we are planning to grow our service in other countries, not only in Japan. There are demands in ESL education world wide.
