About FEA

Freedom English Academy (FEA) through an extensive network of branches that are based in poor, urban neighborhoods in Delhi and neighboring cities, provides a free year-long program that focuses on English and non-cognitive skill development. In contrast to typical vocational programs, FEA encourages its students to pursue professional careers that they identify themselves. The working hypothesis of FEA is that through this encouragement-together with instruction in English and non-cognitive skills-students will gain access to otherwise inaccessible career opportunities. 80% of FEA students are in the 15 to 22 year age group.

Our class size is limited to 20 students. Our branches are located in New Delhi and Uttar Pradesh. We are expanding our reach by making our technology and intellectual property freely available for anyone to use anywhere in the developing world.

Our dynamic teaching method uses a hybrid of computer-based training, lectures, seminars, workbooks, peer-to-peer interaction and game-based learning. We use a cloud-based learning management system (LMS) to track the progress of individual students on a daily basis. Analysis of this data provides insights for improving our program, as well as providing useful information for researchers.

Research Opportunities for Academics

FEA actively partners with scholars and researchers who can improve our performance by formulating, designing, and testing theories. As a data-driven organization, we offer researchers a robust data collection apparatus with the ability to run controlled A/B tests (randomized control trials) and other data-collection methods. With approximately 18,000 students in more than 150 locations, we also have the scale to examine important questions in management, organizational behavior, economics, sociology, education, and other disciplines.
