There are a variety of language programs, audio CDs, DVDs, and computer programs that help you learn a foreign language. Berlitz, Pimsleur, Rosetta Stone, Transparent Language, etc. Which one works best? It is a matter of learning styles and personal preference. For audio CDs, I prefer the Pimsleur Approach. It works well for me. When I teach ESL, I sometimes mimic and expand on this method. Others hate this method.
I enjoy Transparent Language software. I find it helps me become more fluent reading in another language. I am going to explore the Berlitz program (computer software) to see how well that works.
Regardless of the publisher, I prefer the immersion approach. I hate the language programs that just have you repeat words, for example, the days of the week, numbers, etc. I think those are a waste of time.
I’ll blog back as I explore software, language audio CDs, and other approaches. Which method do you prefer?
