Moving the Caribbean Forward

Educational Software Services decided to construct this online school because we recognise the dire need for such facilities in a region where, belatedly, efforts are afoot to internationalise our educational system as well as our methods of delivery. In this way, and with an emerging penchant for the student-centred approach, it is hoped that we will be able to provide much more sound and effective educational content.

It is recognised that the traditional "chalk and talk" approach is no longer being tolerated by our children who are, by and large, technology driven, and the products of a much more oral society than in the past. All efforts must therefore be made to upgrade our approaches to the delivery of sustainable and meaningful education, not driven by a plethora of explanations, but rather by the presence of an endless stream of examples which have the power to open the learners' minds and get them actively engaged in their own learning. 

In planning and preparing our courses, we are guided by the principles of the Revised Bloom's Taxonomy, (see image below) the vastly popular concept of Gamification, and the constructive cognitive revelations which characterise the learner-centred approach to the delivery and acquisition of educational content.


We are proud to have been able to achieve our goals in developing this facility, and in authoring content and activities which are proven motivators and attention grabbers. We have used a large variety of games and quasi-games as interactive learning activities to actively engage the learners and hold their attention for hours while they acquire knowledge in a pleasurable, non-threatening environment. In short, we are confident that we have been able to eliminate the learning anxiety which debilitates so many learners.

We pledge to work hard to keep our content relevant and fresh at all times for all our users. We understand that learning is an individual thing. This is why we have placed no time limits on any of our content: Learners can repeat all the presentations, activities, quizzes, and exercises at will. Since it is online, they have the flexibility of 24 hours a day access from anywhere in the world. The content can be accessed from a computer, laptop, cell phone, or tablet: Any device can be used.

We know the power of our creation and that is why you are guaranteed 100% refund if you choose to close your membership during the first thirty (30) days. No questions asked. 

Available courses

This course was developed to help children learn the fundamentals of English as they go through their years of primary education. While it follows the syllabi of Caribbean (West Indian) educational systems, it has relevance for any learner anywhere in the world who seeks to develop an effective command of the English language.

This is a massive course, comprising hundreds of language presentations, interactive learning activities, exercises, and quizzes. It was designed to capture the imagination and interest of children between the ages of 9 and 11. However, it is an extremely useful tool for remedial work in some secondary schools where children have not fully grasped the fundamentals.

The language presentations were authored based on topics taken directly from the syllabi of Caribbean nations. Since they are concerned with teaching the fundamentals of English at this level, all of the parts of speech are treated in attention grabbing and highly motivating ways. Slide shows are used as the preferred presentation tool. The slideshows contain endless information, opportunities for practice, loads of language to study in the form of full contextual sentences, each accompanied by a picture, and much more. This course is an English-learner's dream come true.

The learning activities include a wide assortment of games and quasi-games. There are sorting games, sequencing games, matching games, recognition games, categorising games, and many more. Try Snakes & Ladders, Tic-Tac-Toe, Slot Machine, and several other favourite children's games. Have great fun while learning without even realising it.

The large variety of exercises and quizzes includes, matching exercises, jumbled sentences, multiple choice, multi-select, yes/no exercises, cloze activities, word bank, word replacement exercises, hot spot, drag & drop, and a few others. Learners can repeat these exercises and quizzes as many times as they want, but only the best mark will be retained by the system.

This course was designed to do the following:

  • Introduce learners to the fundamentals of English in an ultra-effective way through the use of modern presentation strategies, interactive learning activities, games, quizzes, and exercises.
  • Present only what is needed, but in a fairly challenging way to assist in the development of such skills as comprehension, analysis, synthesis, reproduction, production, and creativity.
  • Motivate learners to actively participate in the teaching/learning process, and to be in control from the outset in a student-centred environment.
  • Make learning fun and raise students' level of motivation to unprecedented levels.
  • Remove all the boredom, learning and performance anxiety from the learning process, whether at home or in the classroom setting
  • Follow the principles of Bloom's Revised Taxonomy of Learning Outcomes through the use of engaging, challenging, and motivating activities that create a desire to learn, and a craving for investigation and creation
  • Provide learners with the tools to develop the ability to remember, perform/apply, analyse, evaluate, and create, while displaying new levels of independence in real life situations.

This is a success-orientated course which we recommend for anyone studying English. It gives you everything you need to succeed and grow your language proficiency. At the ridiculous price of only US $75.00 annual subscription or US $0.21 per day, you have nothing to lose. We at Educational Software Services have created an ultra-effective utility to ignite language learning. Use your cell phone, tablet or computer. Study wherever you may go, any hour of the day or night. We placed this course online for your convenience.

Happy and successful studying!!
