Speed up learning Catalan:


Are you looking for a language course that you can use on all your devices and which will teach you the new language not only in a fun but really effective way?
 
This language course will always present you with all contents at the optimal time, according to your learning level.
 
If you choose the basic course, you will learn 1300 words and reach the A2 level.
With the complete package it is whole 5000 words and you even achieve the level C2.
 
In the daily tasks you will first read and hear the vocabulary.
The repetition takes place alternately by fading in and uncovering the translation or by Multiple Choice.
You repeat new words so often in the following days that you never forget them again.
In this way you memorize the translation, the correct pronunciation and the spelling of the words in a playful way.
 
But words alone do not form a language, so you will get suitable texts for reading and listening for the vocabulary.
By a sentence building trainer you practice beyond that to form whole sentences.
 
This course comes with a integrated verb trainer.
This trainer helps you to quickly learn how to build verb forms correctly.
 
And to make it as easy as possible for you, all content is automatically presented to you in such a way that you always continue learning at the optimal point.
Whether you learn three minutes or one hour a day is up to you.
 
In addition, there are many elements that motivate you to continue learning:
For example, there is a sophisticated scoring system for each word you learn.
The longer you learn during the day, the more points you get per word.
And if you learn several days without interruption, you will be rewarded extra.
 
After each course unit, you can compare yourself with other learners and exchange the points for bonuses - similar to a frequent flyer programme.
And every day you learn for a particularly long time, a new surprise awaits you at the end.
In addition, you will be motivated to learn even longer than the day before, because you will also receive valuable additional points and thus more bonuses.
 
The vocabulary is appealingly illustrated and was recorded in the recording studio by professional Catalan speakers - there is no computer voice as with some other providers.
 
In our Learning Community you can also exchange ideas with others and look for a learning partner.
 
The course is an online course and you can use it any time on your computer, smartphone or tablet and change the device at any time.
And after you have learned actively, you can start the "audio trainer of the new and today not known words".
You will listen to the vocabulary in English and Catalan and repeat it.
Thus the words will consolidate better.
 
In a short time you will be able to speak fluently with the help of the Catalan course.
You will understand all words and never forget them again.
It will be easy for you to build whole sentences and it will be fun for you to converse in Catalan.

The long-term memory learning method of 17 Minute Languages:
Learn and never forget


The Catalan long-term memory learning method is based on the latest findings from research on vocabulary learning.
 
You learn all the vocabulary of the Catalan course from the beginning and repeat it in a systematic way until it is stored in your long-term memory.
This way you will remember the vocabulary permanently.
 
 
The long-term method works like this:
 
  1. First thing on the following day you have to correctly translate this word.
  2. The program then waits for two days.
    On the third day you will be prompted by the same word again.
    You then have to translate it correctly.
  3. The program then waits 4 more days.
    On the eighth day you will be prompted by the same word yet again.
  4. The program then waits 8 more days.
    On the ninth day you will be prompted by the same word yet again.
  5. The program then waits a final 9 days.
    You have to correctly translate the word just one more time.

If you knew the word on each occasion, by this time you will never forget it!
It is permanently stored in your long-term memory.
(Important to know: If you forgot the word to be learned on any occasion during the repetition phase, the repetition starts again.)
 
With this learning method, you will learn all of the vocabulary in this Catalan course.
New words will be added to your lessons every day.
Your vocabulary will grow rapidly.

What do our clients say
... regarding the learning methods of the language courses


"The varied learning possibilities are gorgeous! They have something in store for everyone.
Especially being able to print flashcards has been new to me an I think it's brilliant! They are really easy to print and front and back are fitting on top of each other! The every-day situations make learning much easier since sentences out of everyday life are a great motivation learning a language. Learning varies at all time because there are so many different ways teaching myself the language."

   (Kelly Roberts)
 
"It is a more fun approach than other courses.
I like the repetition rhythm of words I do not know. I need a visual approach to support aural learning."

   (Andrea Matrosovs)
 
"I am very content with your language course and I really enjoy learning with it. I like the well-structured way of the course and the wide-ranged possibilities which makes learning so much easier and varying as well. Besides I think it's great you can choose listening to the language as often as you want to as well as being able printing the vocabulary on flashcards. In any case I would love to thank the experts who developed the course very much! It's fun to learn a new language with this course!"
   (Gillian Smith)
 
"Early days yet but ... I like the challenge created by the various ways of presenting the words / expressions presented in the learning process.
Both passive and active recall are interspersed following your own system and the dynamic variation keeps the experience 'fresh'.
I'm old and have a problem with short-term memory but I notice that the repetitions and 'recycling' are paying off.
Recognition is simple but recall of the target item from the English is slow. I'll get there in the end!
By combining this course (for vocabulary) with other input, I am making fair progress."

   (Piet Wade)
 
"It speaks the words so I can hear pronunciation instead of just guessing how written words might sound.
I also like the multitude of ways the words are presented: written words, pictures, fill in the blank sentences, spoken dialogue, etc.
This allowed me to speak more authentically and to learn the words more thoroughly.
This is the best program I have used."

   (Ashley Crust)
 

What our clients say
... about the long term memory learning method


"I've been mostly impressed by the long-term method for learning new vocabulary, since I didn't expect knowing the vocabulary after a pretty long break. The explanation of the psychological backgrounds and the systematics of the memory performance respectively makes the learning methods much more comprehensible."
   (Scott Wilkinson)
 
"I've been using this language course for 4 months intensively. I think it's really convenient having the possibility to repeat the vocabulary regularly with the long-term memory learning method. I really enjoy this programm for it keeps asking until the correlate word is typed in correctly. Moreover the digital speech of the respective vocabulary is also great."
   (Gautam Kumars)
 
"I'd learned this language already basically before but I couldn't remember hardly anything about my basics, nevertheless I was able to reaccess the language. For this I'm sure the clear and logical structure of the language course is crucial and also the opportunity to operate within the program in so many different ways."
   (Jean-Baptiste Novak)
 
"Every day before I go sleep I'm practising my vocabulary with the long-term memory learning method. By purchasing your software I've made a good decision since it's fun learning and gives me a sense of achievement most of the time. As far as I'm concerned this course enhanced my linguistic knowledge because it's design is varying. Another great advantage is the course being suitable for all kind of operating systems. This is what I really like about it since I'm a Linux user and therefor limited concerning software."
   (Chris Worthingham)
 
"I was especially amazed by learning with the longterm-method. The records of the entire vocabulary and dialogues sound very natural and realistic since they were all spoken by native speakers. Putting it in a nutshell, it's a well-made language course."
   (Marcus Großkautz)
 
"The long-term memory learning method for keeping vocabulary in long-term memory is, in my opinion, particularly efficient. Thereby you are developing ambition which keeps you going. Also the pages which hide the vocab are tremendously good to get a quick overview and are very suitable to repeat in fast track. I find the displaying of the last seven wrong inputs in the long-term memory learning method very supportive."
   (Frank Collins)
 
"I really really like the vocabulary training method. Here, I'm especially using the long-term memory learning method. I mostly prefer multiple choice and input. This method makes me build up on my vocabulary knowledge quickly. I'm able to connect proper spelling as well as the right pronunciation by the audio output. To get a quick learning success this is essential to me.
The distinct lessons are prepared well and are really easy to access. Here its especially useful having the possibility playing the particular sequences."

   (Lauren Grey)
 
"I really do like learning using the long term memory learning method. Using the pc is much simpler than writing manually. Moreover using the pc is much more efficient since you can not betray yourself - The system is correcting every single mistake also including emphasis which are also registered. Storing the different levels makes repeating the vocabulary and the texts based on the flashcard principle possible and thereby more effective. Learning foreign languages has become a hobby to me - for me, personally, not is it only learning by heart but a leisure pursuit."
   (Emily Snyder)
 
"From an educational view the long term memory learning method is very well-structured.
We are able to store the results. Also we think the gap texts are great and the pronunciation of the audio files is especially audibly and clearly.
The lessions are kept short which is favourable respecting our age. Thank you very much for this language course."

   (Richard & Francis Pennyworthy)
 
"I find the logical and neat outline very appealing. I'm also motivated by the long term memory learning method which makes it easy for me to live up to the learning success of the day before and gets me started over quickly. I've already bought the beginner's course and my experiences with the long term memory learning method are good. You can virtually follow the continuing progress the team is working on - this is what I really like since they give me the feeling that I'm taken seriously when I hand in some suggestions for improvement and changes."
   (Agatha Low)
 
"It's very beneficial being able to organize your individual schedule and also being able to print out the entire course. The variety of the teaching materials is also great.
When it comes to learning vocabulary by using the long term memory learning method you only decide once how long you would like to learn per day. Once you've decided on how long you want learn a day, this will be happening automatically afterwards. So, once you get started you will pull trough.
This is also very helpful when having a hard time with motivation. Being able to decide on your own how long you want learn makes this course "feasible"."

What our clients say
... in regard to structure and content of the programme


"I like being drilled - and measured against A1/A2 proficiency. I also like the dialogs. I go back over them again and again.

I also like the dictation."
   (Ira Lund)
