Better scores for English-language learners
Children in amplified classrooms improve dramatically in literacy growth, spelling and comprehension.
FrontRow improves ESL
comprehension up to 60%
Non-native English students have difficulty understanding their teacher even under ideal classroom listening conditions. Background noise and sitting far from the teacher — unavoidable conditions in many classrooms — make it even harder. In fact, the speech perception accuracy and listening effort of children who are not native English speakers is similar to children who have 25-40dB hearing losses.
Can a FrontRow sound system overcome these barriers to learning?
That's what Carl Crandell and other researchers at the University of Florida wanted to find out. They tested the word perception of 20 native Spanish speaking students in classrooms with and without a FrontRow sound system.
The result: ESL students in FrontRow classrooms were understanding up to 60% better
