Alo7 was started by Dr. Pengkai Pan, PhD graduate from MIT Lab. Alo7 is the largest K-12 digital ESL curriculum developer. Our curriculum is used by over 5000 schools in China.
We have launched blended learning program nation wide: our students use our curriculum in the classroom and then review what they have learned with native English speakers on line via 1 to 3 + group classes.
Your students have already learned the materials ahead of time in the classroom. This makes online tutoring with Alo7 much easier.

We offer Class Delivery Workshops (CDW) to help you get used to our platform and curriculum. CDW is paid to you.
