Open English, a Miami, FL-based online English school for Spanish-speaking learners, has received an investment from Flybridge Capital Partners.
This brings the total amount raised by the company in its Series A round of financing to $6m. In April 2010, the company announced it had raised $5m.
The company intends to use the new capital to continue the expansion of its Internet-based English language school throughout Latin America.
In conjunction with the funding, Jon Karlen, a Genenal Partner at Flybridge Capital Partners, will join the company’s board of directors.
Open English’s approach to English language learning combines live instruction with native English-speaking teachers and multi-media learning content customized to each learner.
