Speed up learning Dutch:


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 Dutch 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 Dutch 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 Dutch 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 Dutch.

The long-term memory method of 17 Minute Languages:

This learning method is based on the newest findings from research on vocabulary learning.
Every word to be learned will be repeated at precise intervals.
 
The long-term method works like this:
 
You learn a new word.
This word is then registered in the program.
The systematic repetition of the word begins immediately:
 
  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 Dutch course.
New words will be added to your lessons every day.
Your vocabulary will grow rapidly.

Diverse Learning:


We have built many gizmos into the program so that learning remains fun and exciting.
 
repeat words Repeat the words until you know all the vocabulary:
In all of the tests, you have to type in the right words so often that you will be able to do the correct translation instantly.
Simple words stop appearing in the daily program after 2 or 3 repetitions.
More difficult words may be repeated 5 or 6 times.
Especially difficult words, which you often don't know, are asked even more often.
Most importantly we don't want you to have forgotten these words by the very next day!

 
effective repetition Seven words at a time:
After learning seven new words, the software will show you a table with a summary.
Learning seven words at a time is especially effective.
Now you can repeat these words again at a glance.

 
overview points Points, learning time and number of repetitions:
You can already see how long you spend with one lesson unit.
By the way, you won't be able to cheat:
The program will actually only show the amount of time you worked.
If you would like to take, say a one hour break, the clock stops ticking until you're ready to work again.
 
Every word allows you to see how often you have already repeated it today.
Words that you knew immediately will no longer appear in tests for this day.
Word that you are still having trouble with will continue to appear again and again.
 
For every word you know, you get points.
In this way, you can compare a day's learning with each other. You also see, for example, at which time of the day you learn vocabulary the quickest.


 
break A break after every 30 minutes:
Studies have shown that after a half an hour of learning concentration decreases rapidly.
For this reason, your language course will remind you every 30 minutes that you should take a break.
Stand up, go for a walk, drink a glass of water.
Afterwards, reinvigorated, you are ready for the next half an hour!
(You can, of course, ignore the reminder and immediately continue learning.)


 
pictures A wide variety of pictures:
If you know a word, you will see a new photo as a reward.
(We have also thought of something for you even if you answer incorrectly...)
When you see that the course is fun and rewarding, you will be motivated to see it through to the end!

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)
 
"This is my first exercise program for pc ever - especially the offered possibilities of long-term memory training as well as the literacy test which are very helpful for me are fascinating to me."
   (Tom Livingston)
 
"The vocabulary trainer is jut awesome!!! This is how you motivate people to learn!
Words have to be repeated until you spell them correctly.
Also, I think its great being tested in both languages. Either one way or the other, it's up to you.
I'm pretty sure this how you will remember your vocabulary! The texts are chosen very well, directly taken out of every day life, very understandable for everyone, meaningful and very helpful for general use.
I also like being able listening to the texts line by line and listening to the vocabulary particularly as often as you want to. This programm is super easy to handle. Thumbs up!"

   (Doro Graham)
 
"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)
 
"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'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)
 
"I particularly like the diversity of the learning method and the great choice of topics of the lessons or the continuous sequences. The exercising sections containing the long-term memory learning method are really motivating to start learning. Now, my son (15) really enjoys learning new vocabulary and is making great progress. Personally, I was able to develop myself professionally and put into practice what I had learned."
   (Marguerite Guérin)
 
"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'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 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)
 
"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)
 
"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"."

   (Henry Smalls)
 
"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)
 

What our clients say
... regarding the daily exercises of the course


"I really have to thank you for the daily exercises. They really give me motivation I need to do at least my daily exercises on a daily basis since I don't have much time left. Additionally I think the great choice of the different ways of learning is gorgeous, e.g. first, taking a look at the vocabulary, secondly finding them hidden in a text and thereby studying them and then being tested and learning vocabulary intensively. "
   (A. Svensson)
 
"I enjoy the daily exercise program because it's easy to work on and it's varying. Mostly I use the long term memory learning method and the quick repetition. This course allows me to continue my studies on a daily basis and I feel really really motivated to learning another language."
   (Jason Big)
 
"The daily exercises are the greatest thing about this learning software. In this way I'm able to learn in a structured way. Thereby, I can learn both the vocabulary training and text exercises quickly and continuing. Moreover I'm convinced by the different methods of vocabulary training and different learning methods. Above all the text input and the automatic testing of your knowledge gives me a quick and really good result."
   (Chris Osborne)
 
"I like the interval repetition, the division in levels and the monitor how much time is left to achieve a level, I like the reward system, when it is possible to get other courses in other languages, I like the meditation mysic."
   
 
"I am given the possibility to determine the learning rate myself. The daily exercises are giving me the pressure necessary I need to do them.
Apparently different brain areas are getting activated by different learning methods of the program. In my own case, the learning success seems to be lasting."

   (Craig Miller)
 
"I like the lessons being divided in daily exercises.
Still, I can decide by myself independently how much I'd like to learn. That way learning never gets boring.
I further like the speakers being native speakers. From the beginning, you are offered short texts which you can gradually elaborate."

   (Frank Roy)
 
"The daily exercises are encouraging me to really stay focused even though there are no new words are added. Regardless of whether working on quick repetition or text input: The recorded vocabulary combined with the written word itself is perfect for me."
   (Sabine Schwarz)
 
"The daily are exercises learning method seem very effective. It gives you a well-structures schedule that guides you trough the program.
And if there is time left you you could additionally use further training methods."

   (Gunther Rummel)
 

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


"This course has broadened my vocabulary knowledge tremendously.
For me personally, listening to texts and thereby improving my own pronunciation was particularly helpful. Of course this is really motivating, helpful and is giving me a feeling of getting more and more confident when communicating with native speakers. The method by which you acquire vocabulary is excellent - at the same time it's a fantastic exercise to train my brain."

   (Bill Green)
 
"I like being drilled - and measured against A1/A2 proficiency. I also like the dialogs. I go back over them again and again. (Occasionally the dialog translations are not real accurate but they do give the meaning.) After reading dialogs, I will also type them into my own document, give me a good practice writing. I also like the dictation."
   (Ira Lund)
 
"I appreciate the course' systematic regarding the structure, the clarity regarding the titles you can click on.

The vocabulary being taught is very applicable especially for beginners - that's what I really like since I want to learn this language only on a "vacation" kind of level. Additionally I want to point out the learning monitoring and the opportunity given to print out the vocabulary which makes learning a lot easier for me."
   (Mark Curtis)
 
"I'm very pleased with this course and it helps a lot with my studies. This course is especially helpful when it comes to learning vocabulary and a proper pronunciation. I'm pretty sure I would have given up learning this language if it wasn't for this course. I like the lessons being short and therefore clear. Also the flashcards which can be printed out are great for taking with you and learn whenever I feel like studying."
   (Holly Wilkinson)
 
"I'm really motivated by the short and not too challenging lessons. They encourage me to hang in there because they are easy to process by the self-learning principle. I really like the versatile testing options. Each term or sentence can be repeated - this way the pronunciation can be memorized much better."
   (Christen Nixon)
 
"The lessons are very versatile. This program also provides the possibility to print out cards which I think is very crucial. Since we're getting ready to move these lessons are great to get prepared.
This course is great!"

   (Dorothy Blake)
 
"I was positively surprised by the many lessons. The lessons aren't stuffed full and contain an appropriate amount of vocabulary. The dialogue texts are well-chosen and the basic vocabulary is extensive.
The flash cards which can be printed are a good learning method - it really worked out for me."
