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

"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)
"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 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)
"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)

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)
"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'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)
"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"."

   (Henry Smalls)

Customer reviews
... about the daily trainer

"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)
"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 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)
"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 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)
"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)

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

"I appreciate the course' systematic regarding the structure, the clarity regarding the titles you can click on.
I also like being able to print out whatever I like and having the correcting aid at my disposal. It's very beneficial having the opportunity to listen to the appropriate vocabulary. This course is definitely meeting my expectations!"

"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)
"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 the learning units being split in small very achievable units. 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)
"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!"

   (Tess Carlson)
"The listening examples are suitable for the daily use and are worth learning.
Within a short period of time I acquired essential vocabulary which encouraged me to keep going.
In addition the recording is realistic, comprehensible and I as a student was given the chance to get an impression what feeling for language means."

   (Chester Fields)
"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)
"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."

   (Nicki Chestnut)
