NEW YORK, Feb. 15 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — 123 Ingles Course, an ESL e-learning institution, has announced the donation of a method for teaching English in a format named “Audio-Braille” for blind people. The company has expressed its desire to deliver this innovative course at no cost to all public and private institutions worldwide that help blind people.
The announcement, made on February 14, aims to inform the community of this initiative for its early implementation in institutions dedicated to helping those who can not see. The donation also will be made to any individual who submits a certificate of disability.
The teaching materials in “Audio-Braille” consists of class templates in standard Unicode format to be used in the preparation of the tables, as well as 25 audio tracks in digital format.
Maximiliano Lobos, CEO of http://www.123-ingles.com, said that “it is our moral obligation to contribute to the dissemination of knowledge of English among our brothers who are blind. English is very difficult to learn to Hispanics, and it is much harder for blind people.”
Mr. Lobos explained that this course has 25 lessons in the well known “Braille” code, and he decided to supplement it with audio. This virtual teacher who became famous teaching on YouTube for Hispanics, confessed that he conceived this idea stating that, “I had an intuition because if our brothers who are blind have a more developed sense of hearing, they shall become excellent students using this new ‘Audio-Braille’ course that I’ve created.”
“Many blind people in Latin America and Spain are living in poverty due to lack of opportunities, and we will work unselfishly to decrease this” – he said. He also stated that the most dramatic case is that of blind Latinos living in the U.S., Britain or Australia, and that he is determined to “end this situation.”
Mr. Lobos said that this new method will bring new opportunities to this segment of the population, for example, to work as interpreters or translators.
The delivery of materials shall become effective on 11 March this year and the institutions or persons interested should contact via the website.
