Komified. An idea born in 2017. Our desire - that English language learners stuck at the intermediate level achieve an advanced level of spoken competence
Aims of the app:
Komified aims to do what no other online English language learning program or application has yet attempted:
◼to familiarise clients with features of natural spoken English - In real life, native speakers of English rarely sound as formal as they do in many of the artificial conversations and dialogues found on other language learning platforms and applications
◼ to emphasise the deliberate study of phrases and collocations commonly used by native speakers
◼ to emphasise the need to create personalised sentences which contain words, phrases and grammar structures found in Komified texts
Gripping true life stories - The heart and soul of Komified:
Komified texts are essentially true stories written and voice recorded by native speakers of English.
The beauty of Komified texts is that they contain a wide range of words, collocations and structures that native speakers use in their everyday lives and in the business world. After working with our texts, you’ll be able to speak English fluently because you’ll get used to personalising and using newly-learned vocabulary and features of natural spoken English.
Komified texts cover a range of themes. From buying a secondhand car, to the wonders of underwater swimming, there really is something for everyone.
Doing things the Komified Way:
Here's the plan to get the most out of Komified texts:
1. Read and listen to intriguing real-life stories
2. Learn new words and phrases
3. Create personalised sentences which contain new words and phrases
4. Receive feedback from an expert on your personalised sentences
5. Revise newly learned words and your personalised sentences on the go
There’s more ... Why Komified?
◼ Incidental grammar acquisition - On many language learning platforms, and in the majority of coursebooks, grammar structures are presented in a perfect, linear order. For example, the verb “be” is commonly followed by a presentation of the present tenses. Grammar items do not have to be learned in a fixed order!
◼ Emphasis on unhurried and systematic learning - Komified emphasises the need to create a steady rhythm in learning schedules whereby regularity of contact with materials is more important than the length of time spent learning words, listening to texts and completing exercises
◼ Comprehensive guidance with developing language learning strategies - Komified is committed to sharing innovative language learning strategies with clients
◼ Focus on mid-level and high-level learners - Whereas programmes designed by Komified’s competitors may be a good starting point for beginners and elementary level learners, the materials they develop are not conducive to advancing the speaking level of pre-intermediate and intermediate students
◼ Multi-level compatibility - Komified courses are one-off courses. We do not believe in separating learners into distinct levels so there is no need to pay for Level 1, Level 2, Level 3 and so on in order to attain fluency
◼ Emphasis on connected speech - One area of the English language which is sadly overlooked by many platforms is connected speech - the phonological phenomenon of linking words together to create natural and smooth speech. Understanding how connected speech functions in English will boost your speaking and listening skills
◼ Focus on the schwa sound - The schwa sound gives English a unique sound and rhythm. Using schwa helps to speed up speech and create a perception of fluency
