Children studying ESL, and students learning English as a Second Language across North America and other countries, are increasingly using Zane Education's online visual learning course, and subtitled educational video library, because it provides a unique and affordable online visual learning teaching resource that teaches a vast range of school curriculum subjects and enables them to improve their English Language skills - at the same time.
Zane Education provides the only available online resource that enables ESL students to develop and improve their ESL and English Language skills using the same curriculum material they are using to study at school. In other words, by using Zane's online subtitled videos which were developed to teach a comprehensive range of school subjects, the student is able to read each word, see how it is spelt, hear how it is pronounced and sounds, and then understand the context in which is used.
Not only does this enable the ESL student to develop their English Language skills in a setting and environment that is relevant to them, it also ensures that they are able to efficiently learn those school subjects at the same time, ensuring that they do not fall behind in their school grades - a very common problem for foreign students and children of school age learning English as a Second Language, for the first time.
This provides a unique opportunity to those children studying ESL and learning English as a second Language that is only available from Zane Education.
However it is the following advanced features that makes Zane's visual learning program, the online learning solution of choice for the parents and teachers of those English Language students. As parents or teachers:

Visual learning entails the use of visual aids like video to convey ideas even more effectively. It enhances learning since interactive effects are used to reinforce the content being learned. Visual learning is a great way of learning as it aids to increase a learner's interest in a certain subject.
Visual learning techniques are used widely in schools across the country to accomplish curriculum goals and improve student performance.
Substantial research promotes the use of video in the classroom, or the home, as a dynamic and effective resource for teaching and supporting curriculum material. According to a recent teacher survey, 94% of classroom teachers had effectively used video during the course of the last academic year, and most teachers were using it frequently - on average, at least once per week.

Zane provides the only fully subtitled (captioned) video library with enlarged fonts developed specifically for teaching available online. It enables study of curriculum material and reading improvement - at the same time! AND there are now legal requirements to cater for students with learning disabilities.
Many teachers dislike preparing and grading exams, and most students' dread taking them. Yet tests are powerful educational tools that serve at least four functions. They help evaluate and assess whether students they are learning what is being expecting of them. They can serve to motivate and help students structure their academic efforts. They can help you understand how successfully material is being presented. And they can reinforce learning by providing students with indicators of what topics or skills they have not yet mastered and should concentrate on.
Zane uses multiple-choice tests to measure both simple knowledge and complex concepts because multiple-choice questions can be answered quickly and you can assess students' mastery of many topics in a short time period. Zane has also ensured that each correct or incorrect answer is qualified with a reason so as to ensure that the learning process continues.
A selection of interactive study tools are provided immediately beside every video to enable the student to fully explore and understand all aspects of each particular topic.
Zane provides free Lesson Planning for virtually all of the 260 topics so as to help reduce and minimize lesson planning and preparation time, and to ensure that lessons that are well planned, will achieve their objectives, and are more likely to provide the best learning outcomes for you and your children or students.
Zane Education's library of online subtitled video, online testing and assessment, quizzes and quiz questions have been specifically developed and produced for the teaching of the K-12 curriculum and are aligned to state, regional and national standards.
