MIAMI, FL - April 20, 2021 - (LATINX NEWSWIRE) - He is from Chile, and 13 years ago started teaching English to the Hispanic community for free on YouTube. His name is Maximiliano Lobos (35), an ESL teacher who has broadcasted more than 80 million lessons.
His channel "undostresingles" started in 2008 when he was 22 years old, and what began as a simple amateur experiment, gradually gained a space among Hispanics in the United States, who seek in their classes a free and quick way to improve English. Today this channel has 550,000 subscribers.
Hundreds of testimonies can be found in the comments, such as that of Wilder Andrade, a former Colombian military man, who managed to reach the United States with a contract in hand with a security company, thanks to his good level of English. “Maximiliano's classes on YouTube literally changed my life, and I can say that I owe it mainly to him” -states the user.
A few days ago, this English YouTuber announced the launch of his first mobile application, which, according to his own words, would be a "total innovation", due to the functions that were incorporated into the app.
“It is a dream come true to launch this application after all these years” - says Lobos. "This time of pandemic I took advantage of it to make the app." He says that one day, while at his house, a former YouTube student who turned out to be a programmer called him and offered to develop the app. “He said, 'Teacher, let's make an app; you put your classes, and I program the app. ' So we became partners and the result is ready ”-relates this YouTuber.
The application has 90 video classes where grammar is taught, as well as vocabulary, practice and pronunciation. There are crossword exercises, complete the sentence, order the sentence, discover pairs, true and false, and exercises with voice recognition technology that tell the student if he pronounced correctly.
The app delivers the first 10 classes at no cost. It's called “123 Inglés” and it's available for download on the App Store and Play Store by clicking here.
