I liked the fact that, whether I wanted it or not, I had to study practically every day
What was the biggest problem for me before I enrolled in the course? Sometimes I had no motivation to sit on my butt and start studying :)
What made me sign up for the course? I was already following the Secrets of Polyglots website and I had read Konrad's book. Due to having 2 young children at home, full-time stationary courses were eliminated, so I liked the home-study form of this course and the fact that the offer included languages that I had long wanted to learn (Portuguese and Norwegian).
What did I like the most about the course? I liked the fact that, whether I wanted it or not, I had to study practically every day 🙂 Thanks to the course I learned to use every possible minute, because there were very intense weeks, where there was a lot of learning. I did not want to be left behind, so I did not waste time on the so-called "time eaters" and I devoted every possible moment to learning.
How I evaluate the effects of learning after 3 months? I am very satisfied. I feel that I have a good command of the material covered in the course.
After the course, I understand 80% of simple YouTube videos.
What was the biggest problem for me before I enrolled in the course? It depends on which language. With Portuguese I had a serious problem with pronunciation. The course certainly helped me to listen and remember a lot phonetically.
What made you sign up for this course? My planned trip to Brazil and willingness to embrace the language basics on the trip. I'm learning Spanish which helped a little with the understanding.
What did you like the most about the course? I liked the regularity which was helped by the course structure. Nice audio flashcards, because plain flashcards are not so interesting.
How do you evaluate the effects of learning after 3 months? After the course, I understand 80% of simple YouTube videos. The course gave me a nice basis for further learning, especially past tenses and expressing the future and the present. Spanish helped a bit, but without everyday work, nothing would've happened.
I liked the recordings of a native speaker on the flashcards
What was the biggest problem for me before I enrolled in the course? Mainly I had problems with listening and pronunciation. I think it was not as good as it should have been.
What made me sign up for the course? My greatest motivation to start this course were my Brazilian friends. I wanted to understand them and to communicate better. In general, I felt that my Portuguese was not at the level I wanted. I was also inspired by interesting videos, podcasts, webinars about this course, methods of learning that I watched earlier.
What did I like the most about the course? I liked many things especially the possibility of everyday learning at any time of the day with a good application. I also liked the recordings of a native speaker on the flashcards and a lot of sentences of the language used every day, i.e. colloquial, good communication through comments and e-mail in case of ambiguity of a particular sentence from the course. I also like the good and clear explanation in the form of video and written form of how to work with the cards in the app and what is to be done in a particular week of the course. Also the prizes that could be won for points received from daily learning and group tasks were encouraging. Also the help for a sick child (If someone studies every day, 7 days a week in a row the teacher of the course donates a certain amount to help a sick child)
How do I assess the effects of learning after 3 months? I am very pleased with this course! In general my Portuguese is much better than before. And most importantly, this is confirmed by my friends from Brazil who are the best, in my opinion, "examiners" of my learning. I think I have found a learning system that suits me so ... See you at the next language course !!! 😀
