The Impact of the System
Do you have a large English Language Learner parent population in
your school district? Audio Resource Group’s Talk & Listen systems provide an easy method to help you communicate simultaneously with
multilingual parents at school functions. Studies show greater
parental involvement can significantly improve student achievement.
Some ELL parents may feel apprehensive about getting involved in
their child’s education because of their limited English skills.
Our Talk & Listen systems will increase ELL parental involvement, enabling them to be more
engaged in their child’s education at your school.
Hundreds of schools across the country have increased student
success by using the Talk & Listen system. Carolyn Godfrey of
Sabal Elementary School in Florida said,
We purchased the translation devices for our Academic Parent
Teacher Team meetings. We have three meetings during the school
year. These meetings are specifically for the parents to come in as
a whole and meet with their child’s teacher about grade level
standards, student growth, and activities parents can do at home to
help their child. We have a large Hispanic population and these
devices provide the essential communication needed for parents who
do not speak English. Instead of pulling these parents out of the
meeting they feel comfortable with other parents and feel part of
the team. We also have them available during our SAC meetings, PTO
meetings, and any other parent event.”
Ready to replicate that success for your school district? Here’s a
guideline to determine the right system for your school.
Number of Languages Spoken: For every language translated at a meeting, you’ll need one
transmitter and microphone.
Number of Listeners: Every ELL listener will need one receiver and headphone.
For example, if you have one translated language and 20 ELL
parents, you’ll need a 1-language, 20 listener kit. We have premade
kits for 1-, 2-, 3- and 4- languages and 10 and 20 listeners but we
can create a customized system for your situation.
Frequency: If you already have an existing 72 MHz system, you’ll need to
select 72 MHz products. ARG’s 72 MHz Talk & Listen products are compatible with most 72
MHz systems from other manufacturers. For increased performance, choose the 900 MHz Talk & Listen
