An important part of learning a new language is reinforcing what you've learned and accustoming your ear to the sounds of the language via exposure to native speakers.

Below are some recommendations for French, Portuguese, Spanish and Japanes...

Introduction

The Living Language Method™

Most of us have played charades at some point or another. As a game, it's a lot of fun. We watch as someone gestures, pantomimes, and jumps around, trying to guess what it could possibly be that they're trying to convey. In the game, we expect a lot of ridiculous wrong guesses, and we even like the torturous frustration of having no clue what the answer is. The urge to yell "just tell us the answer!" is all part of the fun. But why would anyone want to learn a language this way?

The Living Language Method™ is not a game of charades. It doesn't force adult language learners to try to absorb a new language, like they could when they were babies. It makes use of all the tools that adults have at their disposal to learn efficiently and effectively, without clumsy guesswork or frustration, in order to really learn how to speak a new language.

Build A Foundation

Work with what you have. The easiest way to learn a new language is to use the same learning strategies that have worked for you in the past and let your native language serve as a bridge to your new language. Begin speaking immediately using essential words and phrases.

Progress with Confidence

Languages are complex systems, but can be broken down into simple steps. By following a building block approach, you can learn a language in small pieces, each piece reinforcing the previous one, while preparing you for the next one. Advance from words to full sentences, then to actual conversations.

Retain What You've Learned

It's easiest to learn and remember a new language when you use more than one sense. The combination of audio and visual input, along with written, recorded, and interactive digital practice, creates a true multimedia learning experience that actively engages you in your new language right from the start. In addition, special recall exercises move your new language from short-term to long-term memory.

Achieve Your Goals

Don't just mimic or memorize. To speak a new language, you need more than words and memorized phrases. With clear and simple explanations of grammar, you'll develop practical language skills to speak with confidence in any situation.
