learn German with long term method
 
German language course
 
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.
    Again on the eighth day, you'll encounter a prompt with that same word.
  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.

I also like the multitude of ways the words are presented: written words, pictures, fill in the blank sentences, spoken dialogue, etc.

This is the best program I have used."

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)

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)

This is what I really like about it since I'm a Linux user and therefor limited concerning software."
   (Chris Worthingham)
 
"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.

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."

   (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"."

"The long term memory learning method makes sure the learned language remains "available". In comparison to other language courses the vocabulary are spoken and recorded by native speakers thus it's possible to speak virtually accent-free. The vocabulary being taught makes you capable to communicate with native speakers easily. People who struggle to organize themselves when it comes to learning a language are given the opportunity to work on daily exercises. What has made me choose your course is being able to determine by yourself how much and when you want to learn. The course provides a great variety of different learning aids. They really have something in store for everyone."
