Accelerated Language Learning
Quickly become fluent in the language of your choice, the course takes you from beginner to the point where you are confident, proficient and fluent in the spoken conversational language. Emphasis is on spoken communication in everyday practical situations.
Teaching Method – Guided Imitation
This is the same method you used when growing up i.e. we learn to speak by listening to others speak and we then imitate what they say and use it in normal conversation.
The beauty of this method is you quickly develop confidence in the language and automatically develop perfect pronunciation with a natural accent without conscious effort. By repeating the words as they are formed in normal everyday sentences you start to think in a foreign language.
Interactive Audio (MP3) and printable Workbook (PDF) - designed to be used anywhere that suits you; so if working on your computer suits you best then it is perfect for that, alternatively transfer the Audio files to MP3 player such as iPod and listen on the move, or if your car stereo plays MP3 files then listen and practice there. [The workbook can be printed out if need be. Please note the disk is not designed to be played via a DVD player or standard home stereo]
