When I started studying Cantonese, I had very little time to actively sit down and study. My life was quite fragmented with a lot of time spent moving around between locations and tasks. Glossika allowed me to utilise all the short snippets of time spent doing mundane tasks - waiting in line, commuting, washing the dishes etc. Glossika is more practical to use than other methods in these situations as each unit of one sentence only takes a matter of seconds to listen to. Hearing the English translation also helps offset any confusion from distractions or stopping and starting frequently. I would just listen to the same content over and over, letting my mind unconsciously familiarise itself with the language. Rather than hindering my learning, repeated listening without reading the text seems to have had a positive impact on my language learning. I can often hear elements of the language clearly in my head when I need to use it. I appreciate the way that the audio includes only the language and (optional) translation. Other convenient and portable learning products are often far too focused on grammar or usage explanations.
Now that I have more time available in blocks, I still find myself using Glossika heavily doing daily tasks such as exercising and shopping. It allows me to easily augment my total study time each day. Several short sessions of 15 or so minutes during these tasks quickly adds up over the course of weeks and months. Additionally, breaking study up into smaller chunks seems to have a more lasting effect than in one large block.
Of course, Glossika can also be used effectively for dedicated language study. In these cases, following along with the written text allows me to get a fuller understanding of each sentence. The sentences are recorded in a number different formats such as Chinese characters, various romanisations, and the IPA (international phonetic alphabet). The availability of the text in pdf format allows me to view it on my tablet and even phone if necessary for quick reference. This makes referencing the text just as portable as listening to the audio.
