Using the useful elements of AI & ChatGPT, Sanako Connect has an automated pronunciation testing system. This advanced technology also uses text to speech (TTS) and Voice Recognition Technology (VRT) to really engage students with languages and improve outcomes.

The teacher can simply copy and paste text into the system, or free type, and Sanako Connect does the rest, creating exercises with feedback and automated marking within seconds.

 2 - Automated Oral Assessments by whole class or year group

So much time and money is wasted by individually taking students out of class one at a time to interview and record them speaking.

Sanako Connect allows the teacher to carry out whole class or year groups assessments simultaneously saving vast amounts of time.

Using Sanako Connects unique live audio & video streaming system the teacher can either ask live spontaneous questions to get a response from the students or use an existing pre recorded audio or video file.

Each student responses is automatically collected and saved individually within seconds for later assessment, thus showing evidential progression.

Using the live audio stream the teacher is always on hand to monitor and offer support and guidance when needed by the students. All recordings or discussions are automatically collected back by the teacher for evidence of progression
