Lingo Media Corporation (TSX-V:LM) said that its subsidiary ELL Technologies Ltd., which is doing business as Everybody Loves Languages, through its social solidarity campaign has partnered with Institucion Educativa Fusac (IEF), in Colombia.
The Toronto-based education technology company said that the partnership will provide IEF full access to Everyday Loves Languages' English-language teaching ecosystem and programs for all their students.
Institucion Educativa Fusca is a public school system in the subdivision of Fusca department of Cundinamarca that serves more than 800 students. After reviewing six online language training companies, IEF's school board and local education secretary unanimously decided to partner with Everybody Loves Languages, said the company.

The partnership will provide IEF with not only teacher training and language education, but allow it to operate a full-fledged bilingual program tuned to international standards and local needs.
"We were impressed by Everybody Loves Languages' devotion to education," Fusca Educational Institution Principal Edgar Fernando Pinzon said in a statement. "Thanks to their incredible products and support, all our students will have the opportunity to learn English and advance their education."
As part of the initiative, the Everybody Loves Languages ecosystem will be incorporated into the school's curriculum to manage, operate, and teach English in preschool, middle school, and high school.
"We are committed to giving children, regardless of socioeconomic status, the opportunity to learn," said Lingo Media CEO Gali Bar-Ziv. "The social solidarity campaign we developed will benefit institutions like IEF and give students of all backgrounds equitable access to our programs, which will help them learn one of the world's most in-demand languages."
The partnership was designed to help increase the school's ICFES Saber 11 scores ad ranking, enabling students to seek continued education opportunities after they graduate high school.
