When I started learning German a few years ago I had plenty of time to practice. I listened to podcasts, did Duolingo and Memorize every day, read through children's books (slowly and painfully) and stammering through conversations with language partners multiple times a week. Now I’m way busier, juggling the demands of life like everyone else and struggling to find ways to fit in my goal of just 30 mins of language practice a day. I had heard about Glossika numerous times but figured it was boring. For people who love verb lists and grammar and rote memorization.
I couldn’t have been more wrong.
A few weeks ago I got a Glossika intro package and figured I could try it. So I clicked it on one morning after dropping my brother at school. I had five minutes of deadtime, what did I have to lose? So I listened and repeated the sentences. Happy that I knew some of the easier ones and enjoying the challenge learning the harder ones just out of my reach.
I just used a few minutes a day that would have otherwise been wasted.
After a week of using Glossika I couldn’t believe the difference those few minutes a day had made. In my next language conversation I was forming more complete sentences, speaking more quickly and using more advanced vocab instead of grabbing for the easiest words that would work. Using Glossika is the only thing I changed.
Glossika is amazing. I love their style and will be buying the complete program after my next paycheck.
