When we make language lessons we always try to bring you the best of every culture. Of course with French culture there are so many wonderful things to choose from.
If you are learning French you absolutely must take time to listen to this audio recording of our French teacher reading a selection from “The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.
First, click on the link below. Next Click on the “Play Complete Lesson Soundtrack or Video” button. If you don’t yet know much French, you can read the translations in English by scrolling down the page as the teacher reads.
Try to focus on how you feel as you hear the teacher read the story. I think you will find as I do that it is stunningly beautiful.
For a long time now I’ve been encouraging people to break their “News” habit and use that time to learn a new language. For most people, watching the news makes them worry about things they can’t possibly do anything about, so why bother.
However if you feel compelled to start your day with news, I recommend the Daily Good.
If you had seen me at work for the last two months you might have said, “What’s he smiling about?” Well what I’ve been smiling about is adding cool new features to our program.
The most important and obvious feature that we have added is a dramatically different set of interactive instructions that replaces the video that you used to see when you clicked “Try It.” In the old instruction video you had to watch and remember three minutes of tightly packed information and then remember how to apply it later.
The charming woman who cleans my house is going on vacation to Italy. She wants to try a few Italian wines and maybe flirt with a few Italian men.
Naturally, I wanted to help. Fortunately, we now have many more lessons completed than she could possibly learn before arriving in Italy.
Because we are so close to being done with our Italian lessons, I made a deal to swap house cleaning for an Italian learning program so she could have a better time on her vacation.
If you are planning to travel to Italy soon, we may be able to help you too.
“Super Package” Customers Can Now Learn Italian
Our Italian lessons are not yet completed, but if you are planning to travel to Italy soon and if you are already a Super Package customer, or if you want to upgrade to a Super Package (if you are not currently a Super Package customer), please contact us, and we can help you a LOT.
I would like to help you have more happiness on your trip to Italy, just as I helped my cleaning lady!
We are still not yet accepting new customers for Italian by itself, but if you want to buy a Super Package and learn Italian and something else with it, go ahead and sign up through the page of the other language you want to learn.
Contact us for help on how to study Italian after you have signed up for a Super Package.
Solar flares affect the earth's geomanetic field and might speed up learning.
Have you ever had days when your study seemed to go very well, perhaps for reasons that you didn’t understand? It could that be the earth’s magnetic field was helping you.
“Rats exposed to geomagnetic fields learn mazes more quickly.”
This is from an article by B. McKay and M. Persinger, “Geophysical Variables and Behaviour: LXXXVII. Effects of synthetic and natural geomagnetic patterns on maze learning,” Perceptual and Motor Skills, 1999; 89 (3 pt 1): 1023-4.
We want to congratulate Steve Young, a Canadian Super Package customer, for recently completing our Canadian French 1, 2, and 3 lessons. To further help him improve his French, we just added several new Canadian French lessons, and we plan to add more.
We will do the same for any customer who has purchased either a Super Package or a 1, 2, 3 Package and completes all the lessons we offer in a language.
If you complete these lessons, we will cheerfully make more lessons for you at no extra charge.
What a deal!
Steve, it’s an honor to be able to help you work toward your goal of becoming a Canadian diplomat. Thank you for choosing us.
