Mingoville Becomes The Subject Of A University Assignment – Website Evaluation

We all know that any product or software can have either positive, negative or both types of feedbacks. Whatever the case is we always welcome our users, parents, educators, or any other ESL expert to review Mingoville and give us the most honest comment.

When we find positive things mentioned about Mingoville (like this one), we gladly circulate the news across the Mingoville company. What we’ve recently found about Mingoville has blown our minds away. Here is the long story short …

It appears to us that some school or university in Malaysia has recently had a class assignment, the objective of which is to evaluate the Mingoville program as an online English learning course for children.

We must recognize the great initiative of the Portugese Government (Ministry of Education) who’s endorsed the digital addition into the current teaching system, which is popularized and overwhelmed by the print materials (books, textbooks etc.)
