If you've been with us for some time, you've probably noticed a few changes in recent months. The header on our website and our emails says "Cricket eLearning: Formerly Fluent City." But what exactly does that mean? Never fear– we're here to explain the change and let you know what you can expect! Long story short: it's about bringing more options to the table, not taking anything you know and love away.
Nearly two years ago, we shared this blog post with you about joining the Cricket family. At the time, we wrote, "By combining with Cricket, Fluent City will have access to additional resources to expand our quality language learning offerings for our customers." We're happy to say that we've been able to do just that. And in expanding our offerings and combining our resources, we've become more than just a language learning platform for adults.
Cricket eLearning also includes language learning for kids, tutoring in other subjects like math and reading, virtual events, and other customizable learning opportunities. All of the language learning opportunities will still be available, there's just MORE to offer. The new name represents a wider audience and an expanded focus. We feel it reflects the breadth of programming available and a firmly integrated role within the Cricket family. There are also new opportunities for multi-generational learning here: if you're a parent or guardian, you can enroll yourself and a child in virtual lessons or events using the same website.
Still, the more things change, the more they stay the same. You'll still be able to access the same quality teaching and materials, the same flexible scheduling, the same safe and secure platform, and the same easy language learning experience. The biggest differences you'll notice are the new name, more offerings, a new look to the platform, and a redesigned website rolling out very soon. We're flipping our social media handles to "CricketeLearning" as well. (Expect the rollout in mid-September.)
Cricket Media and the existing Fluent City brand share so much in common. They're both trusted companies that believe in lifelong learning, community, and curiosity. Both stand for making it easy, accessible, and fun to learn wherever, whenever, and however you want. On this foundation of common values, we've built a new brand to show how unified we truly are in this purpose.
So please don't be a stranger! You might notice emails from Cricket eLearning or a redirect from Fluentcity.com to a new site. We're all still part of the same family, and you are still just as welcome as part of it. We can't wait to see what we'll learn together!
