"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 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)
 
"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)
 

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)
 
"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'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)
 
"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'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 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)
 
"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."

I also like the dictation."
   (Ira Lund)

Also the flashcards which can be printed out are great for taking with you and learn whenever I feel like studying."
   (Holly Wilkinson)
