Transparent Language Complete (English) image
Transparent Languages are a leading manufacturer of language learning software offering many different languages to budding polyglots. At $179.95 their most comprehensive language learning solution is marketed towards the higher end of the price spectrum. However, if Transparent Languages can deliver on their promise to get you speaking English as you would your mother tongue their product will certainly be worth the price. Confident in this, Transparent Languages offer a 6 month...

English, Baby! image
The title of this language learning website is a lesson in itself!  Without a proper understanding of English punctuation one may initially assume this to be some kind of forum discussing the pros and cons of English infants. A visit to their website, however, reveals a novel approach to teaching yourself English that certainly merits interest. The deal is further sweetened by an enticingly low price tag (just $5 per...

Transparent English Everywhere Audio is almost exclusively focused on listening and speaking; arguably, the two most important aspects of learning a language and certainly those that need the most attention. With 20 lessons on either CD or mp3 this course will take you from a beginner level to an intermediate level. The instructions are in Spanish to facilitate ease of use and understanding while users are exposed to native...

Before You Know It (BYKI): English image
English Before You Know It, or Byki for short, takes a markedly different approach to language learning. Instead of a linear approach - from A to B via vocab lists and grammatical explanations in a neat line - Byki focuses solely on building a huge bank of words and phrases in users' declarative memory. This information is collected in a such a way that learners find it much easier to...

They do not give refunds!
User Review of Teach Me! English by Language Learner on 30 April 2015

This language-learning software is a complete joke! It appears that they quickly slapped together some lessons by using PowerPoint. What a rip-off! When I requested a refund, LinguaShop sent me the following reply: "Refunding is an intensive process on our... (Read the full review)

I'll stick with rosetta stone
User Review of Instant Immersion (English) by stephen p. on 20 November 2012

I have to say that if you already know the language and you just need to brush up on certain things then this is not to bad. On the other side if you are trying to learn a new language... (Read the full review)



The Pimsleur Course (English) image
Pimsleur not Pimsleur Approach
User Review of The Pimsleur Course (English) by Vic on 26 May 2011

I love Pimsleur products for learning spoken and reading the language. It's a very structured method. PS: The company is Pimsleur (pimsleur.com), not Pimsleur Approach who are just one of many that resell their courses on the internet. Frankly, I'd... (Read the full review)
