"This way of learning a language made complete sense to me. Working with the SpeakEZ German course, I was able to understand more in 2 weeks than in five years of German in school!"
-- Asbjørn Finsnes
"The way in which this method is presented provided me with language that will suit me in a foreign country instead of a collection of unusable vocabulary words.
Those who have studied languages realize that looking-up individual words cannot convey a language in the correct manner. Becoming fluent means being able to verbalize ideas ; not learning technical rules and identifying the Past Predicate Indicative.
The audio part of this method has been my favorite portion of the learning process. Not only is the pronunciation slow and clear, but it is presented so that I remember the flow of sentences and concepts.
Thank you for the opportunity to work with this amazing program; it has been a blessing for me."

The Birkenbihl Approach
The Birkenbihl Approach: Brain-Friendly, Accelerated Language Learning by Nathalie Fairbanks with Vera F. Birkenbihl
Although Ms. Vera Birkenbihl came up with this revolutionary approach to learning languages about 30 years ago, it is virtually unknown outside of Germany. Not only is it the fastest and most effective way of acquiring a language, it is also a catalyst for growth in its own right.
By demonstrating that every student can learn a language regardless of "talent" by following these simple steps, Ms. Birkenbihl undoes one of the prevailing myths which claims that "language learning is for the talented". After all, we were all able to learn our native language, proof that our language learning equipment is perfectly functional.
Successful language learning is a matter of using brain-friendly learning strategies instead of forcing our brains to practice exercises that they are ill-equipped to perform. As documented in the studies described in this book - this works!!
