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."

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

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)
"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)
"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 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)
"I liked the logical structure of my language course. The dialogues are easy to follow and very comprehensible. The further possibilities which can be chosen to learn vocabulary by different styles and ways both verbally and written are very well-suited for keeping them in the long-term memory. Even after several months they are still available. My basic understanding of languages has been broaden by this course."
   (Anthony Hockner)
"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."
