Worldwide, economic growth and development are closely tied to improved education of the workforce, particularly when the population has cultivated English communication skills. In certain parts of Asia, for example, an individual can expect a 300% increase in his income by acquiring English proficiency. By developing deep libraries of educational and informational content built specifically for mobile delivery, Urban Planet Mobile is the only company to create patent pending mobile education products that are deliverable to up to 95% of handsets. With about 1.4 billion people worldwide actively learning English, there is a vast market for Urban Planet Mobile English language learning products alone.
In addition to the English language learning lines, Urban Planet Mobile offers test preparation products, including vocabulary building for the SAT, GRE, and TOEFL.
