BRIC Language Systems Customized Language Courses Are the Perfect Gift for International Business People, Travelers, and Language Enthusiasts Alike

Instead of Giving Out Rosetta Stone Blue and Yellow Boxes, Help Your Friends Really Learn a New Language This Year, With BRIC Language Systems Customizable Online Courses

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Dec 17, 2014) - BRIC Language Systems CEO Ryan McMunn wants to help people "truly learn the foreign language they need for success this year." In order to make that possible for more people, BRIC is offering a 15% Holidays discount on its popular online face-to-face Mandarin, Brazilian Portuguese, and Spanish courses. The BRIC approach has become the trendy alternative to Rosetta Stone among the international young professional set as well as with US multinational corporations. At this great discount it will make a great gift for travelers, business people, and college students hoping to differentiate themselves from their peers.

This year the discount is being extended to BRIC's exciting Chinese travel programs. One trip takes students to Shanghai, Hangzhou, and Beijing, while the other adventure is for the outdoors enthusiast. After spending a week in Shanghai travelers are brought to Yangshuo for hiking, climbing, rafting and other mountain adventures. According to BRIC Language Guide Archer Liu, "these trips are fast paced, fun, and a great way for college students to spend a few weeks travelling China while learning a language that will be great for their careers."

BRIC's blendTech learning method has been a hot topic in the industry of late. The method involves blending modern technology with the traditional teacher led instruction. For example, Chinese teachers based in Shanghai appear live on the student's computer screen for one-on-one and small group lessons. Alongside the teacher is BRIC's modern and highly interactive learning content. The lessons are customized, within the framework of the course, to fit the student's needs and interests. According to McMunn "studying what you're interested in is the fastest way to learn a language."

Mr. McMunn made sure to mention that he believes most professionals in the field agree with his assertion. After speaking at the ICT for Language Learning Conference in Italy McMunn had an opportunity to discuss the subject with the hundreds of professors, university presidents, and language school owners from around the world who had listened to his speech. "The common theme was that in the language training field, there is really no way to replace the teacher," he says. 

Teachers are able to provide context, cultural awareness, answer questions and customize the coursework. These are all things that programs that rely solely on technology cannot do, that is the reason these products fail so often. There is also little innovation there. BRIC offers trips to the greatest cities in China, a Brazilian Portuguese Olympics Course, and partner with universities to provide a Business and Language Chinese Course. "These products have been popular with customers and will make great gifts; all courses are currently 15% off through January 4th," says McMunn. Anyone interested can sign up for a free trial or make a purchase any time before January 4th. Questions about the courses available can be sent to BRIC's contact us page.
