Why make language learning complicated? I must admit, that after learning Czech for several years I asked myself that very question on many occasions. Not living in a Czech environment and having exhausted all the usual language learning resources, there wasn’t much more I could have done to really grasp the language. So, I gave up and started learning French instead!
Some months later I felt I needed to at least maintain my Czech comprehension but didn’t want to spend too much time pouring through books and more dialogues in restaurants and shops. Frustrated with that approach I went searching and by serendipity I found the Glossika website.
My first impression was that the Glossika Mass Sentence method intuitively felt right. I mean, we learn to speak our native language by hearing it spoken around us every day. We acquired our ability to speak the language without being force fed grammar books or pouring over verb tables so why should we adopt that approach as adults? It makes more sense to begin acquiring a language in context with useful sentences out of the mouths of native speakers.
Intrigued, I purchased the Glossika Czech series and began using the intuitively simple schedule that is outlined in the materials. It has now been 96 days and I am more excited about learning Czech than ever before. How many conjugation tables have I read during that time? None whatsoever, yet my level of Czech conversational proficiency is through the roof. Furthermore, I’m excited to learn new sentence structures every week while reinforcing the previously learned language with the spaced repetition program.
So here’s my take on why you should do yourself a massive favor and grab a Glossika language learning program immediately: you’ll be wasting precious time and effort if you don’t. Seriously, I cannot tell you how easy it has been for me to follow the course, it is something you have to experience for yourself. Having used a range of materials and approaches with two languages now I can confidently say that Glossika has been a revelation and by far the best investment I have made in my language skills.
