Tech app Multibhashi eases English language barriers

Learning a new language is not difficult now a days. There are numerous websites online and tutorials available, where you can learn the language very easily and rapidly. People with a command on English language can land job easily due to the prerequisite requirement for all firms. Learning a new skill is not difficult, it requires patience, motivation and persistence. Everything is possible with these three core skills.

Our neighboring country Indians are good in reading and writing but they lack speaking English fluently. To accomplish the dream of non-English speaking Indians, Anuradha Agarwal, came with an idea of online language-learning platform “Multibhashi”. People from different languages can now easily learn English with an accessibility.

Language tech isn’t an easy space to succeed, but Agarwal states, the exponential rise in mobile phone use and internet connectivity in rural areas and small towns have caused an “explosion in demand” for English learning platforms.

“We focus mainly on those who are at the bottom of the pyramid, especially the millions of blue-collar workers. We help them to upskill themselves and improve their employability. Speaking English reinstates confidence and self-esteem in them,”

she adds.

India is a home to more than 13 national languages, whereas English is the only official language which has no recognition. Starting Multibashi was not her calling or something she wanted to do initially, Agarwal says, “Couple of years ago, when some of my family members and friends, educated in schools with Hindi as the medium of instruction, confessed they felt less confident when they had to converse in English, I started posting bite-sized animations on social media on everyday language needs such as how to talk on the phone and tips for ordering food at restaurant.”

Few months back Multibashi has raised numerous funding through seed funding to keep its technology modern. Speaking English matters a lot for most of the Indians. Moreover those who cannot speak fluently this online platform is not less than Bible for them. It offers the learners on how to teach English in Indian languages such as Hindi, Bangla, Gujrati, Urdu and Kannada. Anuradha Agarwal, founder of language startup Multibhashi expects double digits growth by the end of 2020.

Ideas like Multibhashi, gives hope to students and enthusiasts to learn new language on their fingertips. Connecting people through various groups via this application on smart phone, means people are engaging themselves through a healthy brain activity to learn languages.
