English-Attack! Thailand For Independent Teachers

Private English Lessons

Many teachers of English use English Attack! as a resource with their learners during one-to-one or small-group lessons.

The format and currency of the learning units (video-based exercises, games and visual dictionaries) refresh learner motivation with each new session and favor productive teacher-student communication during the lesson.

English Attack! is also highly effective when used with autonomous learners, who can prepare for a given lesson using the resource and then review it afterwords.


Subscription to English Attack! via an Independent Teacher Booster Pass gives you access to exclusive tools for use with your learners in one-to-one or small group lessons.



English Attack! and Private Lessons 

Pedagogy tips

A learner can prepare for a lesson by getting familiar with a given topic via a video on the site (for example, a film clip or news item).
Before the lesson, the learner can work through the Video Booster (interactive video exercise) associated with the video and pick up additional vocabulary with a related Photo Vocab (visual dictionary).

During the lesson, you can review the exercises with the learner, focusing on particular points of grammar or vocabulary use that need more work. The video clips can also be a great jumping-off point for conversation practice.

Following the lesson, your learner can consolidate new learned vocabulary by playing the Practice Games for the Video Booster and Photo Vocab used during the lesson.

Invite your learners to your class on English Attack!

Your Independent Teacher Booster Pass includes a Student Invitation Code. By creating an account using the code, your learners are automatically connected to your class on English Attack!

Your subscription gives you unlimited access to all pedagogical content on English Attack!, any of which can be assigned to your students.

Learners access the "My School" area of the site you will have created for them, where they will see and do the exercises assigned. An integrated message board allows you to communicate remotely with your learners, and a teacher dashboard enables you to monitor the usage frequency, assignment results and progress of each learner.

Thanks to your invitation code, your learners benefit from a special Student Discount should they wish to buy a Booster Pass. However, subscription by your learners is not strictly required, as you can always assign them the free learning units published on the site every week.

English-Attack! Thailand For Education

Schools, universities, language institutes

You can use English Attack! learning units - video exercises, visual dictionaries and practice games - with your learners both in the classroom as well as for out-of-class learning.

The wide range of content categories and difficulty levels available on English Attack! makes it an ideal complementary English learning resource for students in Middle School through to secondary and university-level education, as well as for those enrolled in language institutes.

A deep and constantly expanding catalog of contextual exercises allows the learner to evolve English language proficiency over the course of his or her education. The format and currency of the units (clips from films, news, music, etc) generates enthusiasm and motivation.
English Attack! for Education consists of a Teachers and Schools Platform and special Education price plans.
English Attack! is currently being used in schools, universities and language institutes throughout the world.


Using English Attack! resources with your learners

Ask your learners to prepare for your chosen lesson

(recommended pedagogy)

Your learners can prepare for your lessons with a Video Booster (video exercise) related to the theme or subject you would like to cover. You can also ask them to review a Photo Vocab (visual dictionary) containing key vocabulary they will need for the lesson.

You'll find your learners keener and more familiar with your planned lesson's theme and vocabulary if they have warmed up for it with the appropriate English Attack! learning units.



Using English Attack! in the classroom

Using interactive multimedia resources in class is a great way to capture the attention 
of your learners.

If your classroom is equipped with a video projector or an interactive whiteboard, you can achieve a high degree of learner participation by going over a Video Booster with them directly in class. You also have the option of playing the video part of the exercise in full-screen mode and coming back to the exercise format later.

Photo Vocabs are perfect for class work on specific vocabulary or content themes.
Going through the Photo Vocab with your learners as a group can be a nice lead-in to a class discussion on the topic of that visual dictionary.

Have your learners consolidate new language items with Practice Games

At the end of your lesson, ask your learners to consolidate the new language items they've seen in class by playing some Practice Games at home.

English Attack! Practice Games allow for contextual revision of language items seen in Photo Vocabs and Video Boosters, and as such are highly effective for locking in recently learned content.

While not at all feeling like "homework," these games use contextualization, repetition, and image/text association to enable learners to move language items from short-term to long-term memory.

English-Attack! Thailand For Companies



English for everyone


Beyond its status as the de-facto language of business, English is today a strategic resource at all levels of a company. Not only is it essential for employee mobility and evolution, but it is also the dominant language of the internet, of technical documentation and, more generally, of information and knowledge.
With the growing importance of international clients and markets, the ability to do business in English has become a key competitive and commercial company asset.
Contrary to other forms of English language training (study trips, courses, or conventional "e-learning" for example), the low per-user cost of English Attack! allows it to be deployed right across all levels of any organization.
The accessibility and attractiveness of our digital immersion content ensures that employees truly engage with their training, thus guaranteeing effective language learning.
The English Attack! solution for companies consists of a dedicated learning platform and price plans designed for businesses.



Usage statistics* that speak for themselves

The digital immersion method for learning English developed by English Attack! creates much higher engagement among learners than more conventional e-learning approaches, which often fall into disuse shortly after being deployed.
Current, authentic English language content like film clips, news, and music strengthen learner motivation with every visit, a process reinforced by the English Attack! motivational ecosystem which features points, achievement level cards, and badges.
The depth of the catalogue of learning units (video-based exercises and visual dictionaries) ensures that learners can use the platform very often without ever getting bored.
The formats of the learning units allow learners to switch from one type of exercise to another - thus allowing for sustained concentration - over the course of a relatively short average session time (41 minutes). 

An accessible solution for your training needs

The English Attack! for Companies solution allows your employees to improve their English autonomously.
The wide range of pedagogical content - covering all levels of English - combined with our digital immersion approach, maximizes every employee's learning autonomy and commitment to his or her training objective.
100% web-based, English Attack! requires no installation of software and can be used in the workplace as well as at home. The site is also multi-platform, with 15% of site users using a smartphone or tablet computer.
If you'd like to offer your employees an even more comprehensive learning solution, our Companies platform allows you to use the online content in combination with Trainer accounts.
This allows you to implement a blended learning program or distance-learning courses.

Pedagogical content designed for your company

Comprising over 1,000 videos and over 5,000 vocabulary photos, English Attack! exercises cover many subjects related to the world of business and industry (Business English, glossaries for different sectors and jobs, etc).
If you are a large company and would like to add more specialized content, our multi-media editorial team and pedagogical experts can create learning units specific to your industry or your brand or company: for example, video-based exercises based on your - or competitors' - advertising; news items; training videos; or executive interviews. We can also create visual dictionaries focused on specific technical vocabulary.
These made-to-order units, visible only to your employees, are published in a special co-branded area of the site dedicated to your company.

Rolling out English Attack! across your company

The English Attack! Companies platform is an easy-to-deploy multi-user solution.
The creation of employee accounts requires no particular installation of software. The activation of the accounts can be implemented via the distribution of codes or from your employee data files.
The Companies platform enables learner-specific activity tracking and follow-up. The designated company trainers or training administrators have access to a dashboard that summarizes overall employee use of the site as well as individualized reporting for each learner, including frequency of site use, completed exercises, scores obtained, and progress achieved.
You determine the training periods contracted, and benefit from volume price discounts depending on the number of employees being trained.

If you're a company executive, or a Human Resources training manager, and would like to improve your employees' English with the English Attack! companies solution,

Learning Games
There are two types of Learning Game on English Attack!:
Stand-alone games can be played without reference to played Video Boosters or Photo Vocabs, as they help you get familar with structures and exceptions such as irregular verbs.
Practice Games are at the heart of the English Attack! learning approach, which recognizes that new vocabulary that you are exposed to needs to be seen at least eight times in order to have a chance of being retained in long-term memory. Learners with a valid Booster Pass can look over a grid of Video Boosters and Photo Vocabs they have already played; choose one to review; select from among a range of Practice Games with which to refresh their memorization of the vocabulary; and try to beat their previous best score on that particular learning unit.

เกมสำหรับฝึกหัด คือหัวใจของวิธีการเรียนรู้ของ English Attack! ซึ่งแสดงให้เห็นว่าคำศัพท์ใหม่ที่คุณพบเจอนั้นจำเป็นต้องถูกเห็นอย่างน้อยแปดครั้งเพื่อที่จะมีโอกาสถูกเก็บไว้ในความจำระยะยาว
ผู้เรียนที่มี Booster Pass ที่ใช้ได้สามารถดูตารางของ Video Boosters และ Photo Vocabs ที่คุณเล่นแล้ว คุณสามารถเลือก 1 เกมจากเกมสำหรับฝึกหัดจำนวนมากเพื่อใช้ทบทวนคำศัพท์และพยายามทำคะแนนให้ได้มากกว่าคะแนนที่ดีที่สุดของเดิมในหน่วยการเรียนรู้นั้นๆ
