Uber recently announced new global resources for drivers and delivery people who use the ride-hailing app in a bid to grow the app into a place where drivers and delivery people can also learn new languages, further their education, and use these skills to help them get their dream jobs.
Uber partnered with Rosetta Stone to have Rosetta’s language learning resources fully integrated with Uber’s Driver app for free. Drivers and delivery people will be able to use it to learn all of the 24 languages available on Rosetta Stone including some language content focused on rideshare interactions
Both Uber and Uber Eats drivers can use the feature to learn any of Rosetta Stone’s 24 languages.
“We have partnered with Rosetta Stone to help drivers and delivery people master the language they always wanted to learn. Now eligible drivers and delivery people around the globe will have access to Rosetta Stone language learning courses which can help them unlock their next step as well as connect with their riders, customers, and their community,” said Dara Khosrowshahi, CEO of Uber.
“For nearly 30 years, people have turned to Rosetta Stone to express themselves and hold meaningful conversations in new languages,” said Paul Mishkin, CEO of IXL Learning, the parent company of Rosetta Stone. “We’re delighted to help drivers and delivery people who work with Uber to bridge communication gaps with customers and make deeper connections with people everywhere.”
These new resources are available to nearly all people who use Uber’s platform and build on existing rewards that drivers and delivery people already have access to.
The new learning resources are available to drivers and delivery people who have achieved Gold, Platinum, or Diamond status through the Uber Pro program in;
Argentina, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Bolivia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Czech Republic, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Ghana, Guatemala, Hong Kong, India, Ireland, Kenya, Lebanon, Lithuania, Mexico, Nigeria, Pakistan, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Poland, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Romania, Slovakia, South Africa, Spain, Sri Lanka, Tanzania, Uganda, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, and the United States.
