'What you understand, you know; and what you know, you don't forget.' - Michel Thomas
Before there was machine learning, there was Michel Thomas. For over 50 years he worked on decoding languages by breaking them down into their most essential component parts. These ‘building blocks’ are introduced to the learner sequentially in such a way that you reconstruct the language for yourself - to form your own sentences, to say what you want, when you want. This unique method draws on the principles of instructional psychology. Knowledge is structured and organized so that you absorb the language naturally and don't forget it. The method allows the brain to work in the way which accepts learning in a seemingly painless, very exciting and highly motivating way.


‘All stress inhibits true and effective learning’ – Michel Thomas
During a course, you will join a Michel Thomas Method teacher and two students in a live lesson, learning from both their successes and their mistakes to keep you motivated and involved throughout the course. You, as the learner, become the third student and participate actively in the class. Within the very first hour you will be able to construct simple phrases by listening and thinking out answers for yourself without the pressure of writing or stress of having to memorize. You will learn at your own pace, pausing and repeating where necessary.

‘The thrill is that you’re actually figuring it out on your own. You’re engaging with another language,
not just parroting it… It’s an excellent way to start, and leaves the listener thinking, Hey, Ich kann
do dis.’ -David Sedaris, New Yorker

I’ve used Michel Thomas to get off the starting block for French, Italian and Spanish and I’m always surprised by how much I can say after only a few hours of listening. - Katie Harris, Blogger

“ I experienced the same sort of pleasure that you got from suddenly getting a crossword clue right or cracking a code...the finger-snapping moment of, Oh My God! I’ve just understood what you’ve said to me in Spanish!! ” - Peter O’S. Løvstrøm, Actor

Beautiful method. I’ve just completed the Intermediate Spanish course, started Spanish almost from scratch and the results are amazing. I’m listening to it while driving, do all the drills while driving, re-listen if needed. Simple, fast, very efficient. Way better than any other language learning system (I tried quite a few, including pricey ones + tutors). I decided to use the following system: pick a language, so whatever Michel Thomas has on it and then switch to reading and tutors.

I saw a comment about app disappearing. I didn’t have that problem but when I had a question, I wrote to the company via Facebook (just search Michel Thomas Method) and they answered within a day or two. Try that.

It just works!

I just completed the Polish Foundation course. This is the first foreign language course I ever finished. They are right - what you understand you know, and what you know you don’t forget. There were times I had to think for up to 20 minutes but I did remember the words the teacher wanted. When I got a sentence wrong, at least I understood what needed to be corrected. I spoke a few words to some Polish people I met and they were impressed with my knowledge of their language. I purchased the intermediate course to increase my ability to speak Polish.

Fantastic teacher

I haven’t finished the program yet but I love Michel Thomas and his teaching method. App itself is lame but what matters is the content which is superb. Wish I had this when I was suffering through French classes in high school. He claims “there are no bad students only bad teachers”. If all languages were taught this well perhaps people like me would not have struggled so much.

As a bonus: read about Michel Thomas on Wikipedia. Fascinating life story.
