Loss-making UK self-study language specialist Linguaphone is looking to the internet to bail it out of trouble.
The company has received a £1.9m open offer which it will use to strengthen its web presence.
Linguaphone has recently bought two interactive learning businesses and has been selling courses in English, French and Spanish online using redesigned products and packaging.
But many felt that the firm was not making proper use of the technology and needed better investment in the web-based courses to be successful.
Linguaphone has not been performing well over recent years and the move towards the internet is seen as an attempt to boost sales through new markets.
