Teachers should emulate

Once you listen to Michel Thomas's first hour, you quickly and naturally adapt to thinking Spanish with little effort. I am now through to hour 5, I am still keeping up. What he does is separate the things you really need to know and understand about a language so you can make a good stab at any normal sentence without going through a heap of grammatical stuff you simply don't need. This is where most teachers go awry- when in Spain, we usually need to talk only in the first and third person with a fair amount of vocabulary and a general understanding of rules. I can't imagine using anyone else and I'm sorry I purchased a lot of material before I came upon Michel.f

As someone with a background in Afrikaans, I thought this method was excellent. A natural and seamless combination of the roots of the language, grammar, vocabulary and the spoken word. After all the memorising claptrap and long lists of vocabulary building, Michel has discovered a fantastic method for easy and practical language acquisition... Highly recommended!

Michel Thomas Method - languages

Excellent app. Not exactly a beginner, but I find his method very appealing. The app is free and does not give you much. You have to buy the lessons. The cost builds up quickly as you have to keep buying to advance. However it is easy to use and works well. Remains to be seen how effective the method is!
