Finnish educational technology since 1961

We are the pioneer in language labs and language teaching software: we started in 1961, when our first language laboratory was made under the name Tandberg Educational. After that we have climbed to a market leading position with customers in over 110 countries and 50,000 classrooms supported with Sanako solutions to help language teachers increase their students’ language skills.

This is how we do it

Close relations with our customers, our partners, and our pedagogical approach have made us the global leader in teacher-led language teaching software market.

What do teachers say about it?

The University of Rzeszów or Uniwersytet Rzeszowski (UR), Poland

Classes can now be either synchronous - we can talk to all the students in real-time using a microphone or on a global chat, or to individual students via a microphone or a direct message - or asynchronous allowing students to practise at their own pace and submit their work for a teacher to check.

- Dr. Marta Nowacka, Assistant Professor in the College of Humanities, UR

University of Leeds, GB

One of the most effective solutions adopted for teaching and assessment by the MA Conference Interpreting and Translation Studies, MA Business and Public Service Interpreting and Translation Studies programmes.

Unversity in Russia

I'm very pleased with the broad range of functions provided by Sanako, which could be used for translation/interpreting as well as for speaking classes. I particularly like the opportunity to let students do their tasks independently as part of their homework.

- Alexandra Chuptsova - English teacher from University in Russia

University of Koblenz

I really like the product! I've used it in our school’s language lab and now online as well. I find the different possibilities for creating exercises very useful.

- Susanne Renette - English instructor or teacher from University of Koblenz, Germany

St Petersburg State University

I appreciate the way exercises can be organized and checked, the advanced recorder function, the possibility of sharing files with students; and to limit the time they see the document / the task.

This tool is really extraordinary. So helpful for us. THANK YOU for helping us in these difficult times.

The Mediazone Linguistica Perugia, Italy

We now can supervise student activities better; both when students are working together and whil elearning alone. Using the Sanako Connect platform also enables our teachers to optimize the time spent in class with students. And it allows us to engage more students than is possible in a normal classroom.
