Louisa and William from Phone English enjoyed a wonderful evening at the British Council Awards ceremony in London on Thursday.

Louisa and William interviewed

They were waiting to see if their Speak and Learn Business English app had won an award in the digital innovation category of the annual British council Elton awards.

The awards, called the Oscars of ELT, celebrate the best, new English learning and teaching developments. Nominees from all over the world were invited onto the red carpet at the start of the evening where William and Louisa were interviewed live over the internet about their app.

The app was 1 of 7 short listed in the digital innovation category and although it did not go on to win, Louisa was very proud to be recognised by the British Council:

” The British council liked our app and that is  a wonderful endorsement of the quality, design and functionality. It was also great to discover other new developments  in our industry, ‘  said Louisa after the event.

About the author:

My name is Lea Hook.
I’m am the proud owner of Phone English Online Language School.
Phone English was created in 2004 by Louisa and William when Skype had just been invented, it moved with the times and since then other platforms have been used such as Zoom, Meet etc. I have been working with Phone English since 2013.
In the new year, Phone English will launch a new platform with Learncube.
With qualified and experienced native British teachers already on board living in the UK, I am hoping to expand in the next few years with native English teachers from all over the world with different accents.
In the next few years, I hope that Phone English will be a multi-subject platform with qualified teachers teaching all languages, maths, nutrition and diet, music, writing services, business, and any subject that can be taught online.
January will see a completely new website design and things will be added as we go.
Coming soon, Phone English Juniors, Phone English Spanish, Phone English writing and proofreading services.
It always seems impossible until it’s done-Phone English
