According to the report, language learning through digital modes provides flexibility in terms of accessing the information, completing the course, and ability to access information anytime and anywhere. It has proven to be advantageous not only to students and institutions but also to faculty members and mentors. With the introduction of smartphones, tablets, and other devices, people can access the Internet anywhere and anytime. This has paved avenues for mobile-based accessibility of language courses. Language learning through cloud platforms has brought portability and flexibility in terms of accessing content from anywhere and anytime. Hence, any learner equipped with a computing device and Internet connection can avail language learning services and courses.

Further, the report states that it is undeniably true that the market is growing strongly, but the references for various other lesser known languages are few. Learners who are interested in learning such languages face problems in acquiring knowledge. Since the demand for language learning is high for English and a few other European languages such as French and Spanish, most vendors focus on these languages only. Additionally, the lack of adequate faculty specializing in lesser-known languages aggravates the situation of online language learning. In the US, less than 10% of college students enroll in language learning courses owing to factors such as the lack of immersive learning environment. Meanwhile, the emphasis is stronger for trade languages like English, French, and Chinese. Hence, students and learners seeking credible institutions to learn niche languages find it extremely challenging to determine an appropriate language learning service provider.
