Review & Description

Discover Spanish through the magic of a great teacher

Fluenz Spanish is based on three principles:

1) There's no substitute for a great tutor. It's often difficult to motivate yourself to learn a language on your own. Having a teacher to challenge and inspire you, while explaining exactly how the language works, makes all the difference.
2) The best way for adults to learn Spanish is with explanations in English. For example, it is impossible to understand the difference between the critical Spanish verbs "ser" and "estar" without a clear explanation in English. With Fluenz, a real tutor guides you in English along a path specifically designed for Spanish.
3) It's best to learn the most relevant words in Spanish right away. Fluenz has you handling a wide range of real-world situations right from the start.

Review & Description

Experts agree that the most important part of learning a language is rapidly building a foundation of word and phrase knowledge. Byki is the fastest, most direct path to that goal it hacks into your memory and fills it with foreign words and phrases. Whereas traditional learning methods spread their learning out across a multitude of lessons and activities, Byki gets right down to business with a proven three step process: 1. Byki guides you through a review of the material you will learn. 2. Byki teaches you to recognize the written and spoken forms of each word. 3. Finally, you will be able to express yourself in Lativan by speaking or writing it on your own. In just your first session, the byki 3-step process will teach you 100 critical Quickstart phrases for use in common, real-life situations. Most products take a one-size-fits-all approach to teaching languages. Byki provides a personalized path to success based on your own strengths and weaknesses. It recognizes the material you learn quickly and takes note of those items that give you more trouble. Byki then maximizes the time you dedicate to language learning by focusing your efforts on the items that you find more challenging, without wasting your time on those you learn with ease. You will see how well the Byki personalized learning system works as you track your progress through Learned Items charting and multiple testing options, including written, listening comprehension, dictation and more. Additional games and activities will provide a fun way to cement your knowledge and pronunciation practice will help perfect your accent. NOTE: Our Byki content is Eastern Armenian. Eastern Armenian is the official language of the Republic of Armenia and it is the language in which most commercial translations are done. It also is the language that most closely mirrors Classical Armenian.

Fluenz Spanish 1

From beginning to end the program has been designed to help learners engage in the most common interactions, ask all sorts of questions, and understand and give directions. In 30 full sessions with nearly a hundred videos, Fluenz Spanish 1 builds the foundations of the language while working out with situations in restaurants, hotels, airports, stores, subway stations, taxi cabs, and while on the phone. br/>
Because the program has been specifically designed for adults and teens, additional emphasis is placed on those areas which English speakers find difficult: masculine/feminine endings, key pronunciation issues, and the challenging verb To Be.
