Teaching English Around the World: Interview with David Deubelbeiss, EnglishCentral

Countries all over the world are striving to learn English as a non-native language. Colombia, as well as the rest of Latin America, is no exception to this craze.

David Deubelbeiss has catered to this frenzy first-hand. He has been a teacher all over the world for more than 30 years, and in the last 10 years he has helped create an English language learning software company called EnglishCentral. We sat down with him to talk about his experiences in introducing his EnglishCentral’s software in different parts of the world — particularly in Latin America.

David explained some of the differences he noticed in selling his product in Colombia, such as: the focus the culture has on meaningful business connections and relationships; the enthusiasm the culture has toward technology’s role in education; the need for patience when it comes to the education administration area; and the important goal of getting the product into the actual hands of students.

Listen in to hear more about David’s global endeavours in introducing his English language learning software and what he has experienced thus far while doing so in Latin America.
