Learning Labs Limited Launches FlashSticks in the United States

UK-based Learning Labs Limited releases its language learning system, FlashSticks.

Learning Labs Limited, a UK company, creates complementary instructional products to help language learners of all ages. FlashSticks® and the FlashAcademy app utilize a variety of paper, digital, and mobile technologies to enhance language acquisition, retention, and application.

FlashSticks creator, Richard Allen, was working in the tech sector in Spain several years ago and was surprised to discover that not everyone he worked with spoke English. In a crunch, Allen needed to boost his Spanish skills and did what countless other language students have done--he wrote words on sticky notes and posted them around his flat and office.

A time-honoured tradition, language educators and students have long-relied on visual aids to reinforce and increase language development and proficiency. As Allen scribbled on his hundredth sticky note, he wondered if there was an easier way...if preprinted vocabulary sticky notes already existed. They did not, and Allen’s curiosity led to the development of FlashSticks.

In a new, educational video, FlashSticks explains the benefits of using their patented language learning system to help anyone, from primary students to seasoned professionals, learn a foreign language:

Veejay Lingiah, FlashSticks CEO, shares that FlashSticks learners benefit by 1) returning to the basics when learning a language, and 2) expanding study with additional cognitive resources. Lingiah explains, “FlashSticks are a tool that anyone can use and are designed to supplement a student’s existing language curriculum to boost vocabulary and easily identify a word’s gender and function, such as noun, verb, etc.”

FlashSticks can be purchased on Learning Labs Limited’s website or in Learning Labs Limited’s Amazon Store.
