Breaking language barriers

One English teacher has truly transformed the way he interacts with his students and how his students learn English. All by using Vivaldi. Let’s take a look!

We like to hear about how our users interact with the web using Vivaldi both on desktop and mobile. Their journeys using Vivaldi in unique ways at work, school, and community are fascinating.

Just like this case we discovered recently.

Language teacher John Warnken focuses on teaching conversational English. And if you ask John about his favorite browser, he’d say Vivaldi. 🙂

We got in touch with John and learned that he loves to work with the Capture tool, Tab-stacking, and vibrant Vivaldi Themes among many other features in the browser.

But the Notes feature is closest to his heart because it has truly transformed the way he interacts with his students and how his students learn English.

Unique to Vivaldi on both desktop and Android, Notes is used to jot down text while you’re browsing. It is extremely useful if you want to research something online, copy text from a website, or attach a screenshot.

One of John’s students, Karla, is a native Spanish-speaker and lives in Lima, Peru. John helps Karla learn English but Karla is also helping John –  learn Spanish.

Karla has only a mobile phone – no desktop or laptop. But looks like that’s enough!

John being a long-term Vivaldi user, introduced Vivaldi to Karla and Karla installed Vivaldi on her Android device.

The next step was to create a unique Vivaldi Account. Then, both of them logged into that account. Smart!

With a Vivaldi Account, they share their notes back and forth, comment on them and interact with each other easily. In this way, they are teaching their respective languages to each other with Vivaldi. Isn’t it brilliant?

John also told us that he uses a translation service called Gboard keyboard that helps him write notes and translate them simultaneously. This makes the process of learning smoother.

If you are not a Google fan, there are alternatives to the Gboard keyboard available such as Swiftkey and more.

Now, that’s what we call a unique way to overcome distances and language barriers.

All thanks to Vivaldi’s Notes feature!

We are making a difference

John’s interactions with his students have improved tremendously since he started using the Notes feature for teaching English.

This positive impact makes us very happy and also gives us more impetus to think about our users and their journeys through the products that we are building.

Another great way for users to express themselves is our recently revamped and vibrant blogging platform. Spare a few minutes and take a look at it. And for our  Spanish users, we’ve got this blog translated in Spanish too.

Just like John, do you have any novel ways of using Vivaldi features on your Android phone?

We are all ears.
