The approach is to provide pre and post exercises to add value to the event: tell them what you are going to tell them, tell them, and tell them what you told them.  This highly effective strategy will enhance the value of the event by enabling participants to be more prepared, providing visibility, delivering better learning, and providing quality feedback on presentation effectiveness.

Active Learning

Much formal language instruction is passive.  Students basically watch the teacher's show with perhaps some repetition.  There is no respect for student's time and knowledge since the focus is on the teacher's performance; parts of the teacher's show are unnecessary for some and insufficient for others.  Individual participation means almost nothing and progress is not visible.

The core of MyAlly’s learner focused active approach is doing with expert feedback.  Learners interact with rich material and write at their convenience.  Learners improve their writing with expert feedback.  Once they have good sentences learners practice speaking and improve their speaking with expert feedback.

Here the learner has written five sentences:

Traditional teacher focused class approach:


At an example company there are forty-five staff trying to improve their English skills.  Four English classes of ninety minutes are offered and staff are required to attend one.  - 360 minutes total teacher time


A staff member gets less than 90 minutes of show per week because the shows are attended sporadically.


very limited visibility

กรณีศึกษา เป็นสถานการณ์ที่เกิดขึ้นในบางบริษัท ได้แก่ ปัญหาที่ลูกค้าพบ, คำชมเชยที่ลูกค้าบอก, การสนทนากับลูกค้า, การเจรจาต่อรองกับผู้ผลิต

ผู้ดูแลจะส่งกรณีศึกษาต่างๆมาในรูปแบบที่เป็นภาษาไทย หรือภาษาอังกฤษ แต่ว่ากรณีศึกษาในบางสถานการณ์ก็ไม่ได้สำคัญดังนั้นผู้ดูแลจำเป็นต้องจัดเรียงลำดับความสำคัญก่อน ทางเราจะแปลจากภาษาไทยเป็นภาษาอังกฤษที่ถูกต้องตามหลักไวยกรณ์ (หรือการปรับปรุงจากภาษาอังกฤษ) และอาจจะแก้ไขภาษาไทยบางส่วนเพื่อความเข้าใจที่ชัดเจน ดังนั้นผู้ดูแลสามารถจัดเตรียมเนื้อหาด้วยตัวเองและได้รับผลงานที่ปรับปรุงเสร็จแล้ว

A case is a narative about some business event: a problem a customer had, a compliment a customer made, a dialog with a customer, a negotiation with a supplier ...

Staff will submit cases in Thai and broken English.  Not all cases are valuable to the business so staff will rank them.  We will translate some into good English with grammar and usage pointers, some Thai for clarity, and provide several good alternatives.  Staff will be able to provide their own input and get feedback.
