"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)
"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)
"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."

... 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 particularly like the vocabulary-learning function with the long-term memory learning method. Not only is this method incredibly efficient but also very motivating, because success becomes apparent immediately and you can feel certain having the vocabulary stored in your long-time memory. A great advantage are the crystal clear voice recordings which don't left you thinking about the pronunciation and makes naturally learning possible."
   (Guillaume Guerrin)
"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'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 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)
"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."

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.

I also like the dictation."

This course is great!"
