We love all languages! If you or someone you know wants to cooperate on a new language, we're interested - just let us know.
Generally speaking, it's very difficult for us to say exactly when a new language will be ready. Our production process has quite a few moving parts, including translation, verification and proofreading, audio recording, audio post-production, and text post-production including romanizations and IPA phonics. Please check back on our website for updates, or send us an email and let us know that you want to be notified when a specific language is updated.
Please have all interested parties send an email to email@example.com with the language they want to publish and their qualifications.
We appreciate the support our customers show by placing pre-orders for products currently in production. We have recently updated our policy to wait until our new products are at least 90% complete before taking pre-orders, in order to avoid misunderstandings about when the products will be released.
Currently the only products available in the Intro series are the Glossika Chinese Pronunciation manual (for English speakers) and the Glossika English Pronunciation Manual (for Chinese speakers). We will be adding more courses in this series in the future.
Absolutely, although we do advise true beginners (with no experience) to do some additional research on their new language at the beginning. Wikipedia is a great resource, but any self-learning books or language textbooks will do just fine. The important thing is to listen often - remember, the more you listen, the faster you'll pick it up!
If you aren't studying for any special purpose such as conducting business or short-term travel, for general-purpose language acquisition we recommend Fluency 1-3, the first 3 courses of our general-purpose series in one convenient package.
Japanese for Teenagers is intended for Japanese second language teens and young adults who are looking for a more informal style of speech that they will hear among close friends. The regular Japanese product is for most other learners who will be speaking a more polite version of the language - suitable for use with one's teachers, elders, acquaintances, and strangers.
Glossika PDFs are secured with Adobe Acrobat version 10 PDF copy protection. The text is fully searchable, but the version 10 copy protection scheme disables copy-paste and printing of the PDF contents.
Glossika PDFs are only officially supported for use with Adobe Acrobat version 10 and above. Adobe Acrobat Reader version 10 or above is available for Windows, Mac OS, Android, and iOS. If you would like to sync your files and progress between multiple devices, at this time we suggest using Google Play Books as it works seamlessly across all popular platforms. iBooks does not support Adobe version 10 PDFs.
Please check the following table for compatibility. If you are using another platform or PDF reader software, your mileage may vary.

The triangulation package allows you to learn or review 2 or more languages at the same time by combining multiple languages into a single audio file.
We are happy to offer a 20% discount for triangulation packages that include a language you have previously purchased. Please email us for a coupon code.
The 3-Language Triangulation package includes a total of 3 languages: one source and two targets.
Of course! Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, and tell us which 3 languages you'd like to try.
Every course in the same series has the same material. Triangulation for Fluency 1-3 contains the same material as the individual languages, but the audio is joined together. You'll hear Source > Target 1 > Target 2 in the same file.
The Triangulation Package works best when you already have at least some familiarity with the languages, and we recommend using your native language as the source language.
Unfortunately not. Due to minimum order requirements from our printing house and the unlikeliness of selling a large volume of Triangulation Packages for every combination of languages, we are unable to provide paperback copies. However, we hope to make this possible in the future.
You can mix and match language families, but we really like listening to audio from different languages of the same family. Listening to two similar languages side by side allows you to more easily keep them separate in your mind.
Yes. Please send us an email at email@example.com and include your order number.

Yes, please send us an email with your order number for details.
