I’ve covered plenty of different language learning concepts and practical tips to send you on your way to fluency in my blog. But there’s more you can do to learn a new language besides following tips and tricks. With OptiLingo, you can reach fluency fast and without the frustrations found in other language learning programs. The key to the success of OptiLingo rests in its use of Guided immersion.
Different language learning companies use different approaches. After extensive research on the subject and spending years teaching myself one of the most ancient and difficult languages on the planet – Circassian – I developed my method for learning a new language.
Guided Immersion employs a proven method that turns the old way of language learning on its head. Instead of “memorizing,” we emphasize “remembering not to forget.”
In short, Guided Immersion works quickly. (It’s what I used when I taught myself Circassian.) The only real requirement necessary for Guided Immersion to work is that you relax and enjoy yourself throughout the course of your studies.
The most important factor in learning a language is that avoid fear and intimidation. Leave any anxieties or tensions behind. While you’re at it, try to clear your mind and put aside distracting thoughts. The key is to avoid the temptation to memorize or study the material.
I know that sounds counterintuitive. But, remember the difference between studying and learning? The responsibility of your success lies with the course and its design. Put your faith in the Guided Immersion process. Free yourself from the pressure and anxiety that come from studying or memorizing. Absorb the information naturally. Do that, and it will become knowledge you’ll never forget!
You may be tempted to memorize vocabulary words. And for some, that might be OK. But the vocabulary terms in my course are provided to add greater context into language structure. So, you needn’t memorize them. The regular reviews for each lesson will ensure that these terms (and the phrases) etch themselves into your memory in an organic and graduated process.
