To REALLY learn a language, just do TWO things…
- 1. Master Critical Vocabulary
- 2. Use REAL Language in Natural Context.
The Transparent Language Complete Edition™ combines the two methods needed to achieve language proficiency. This interactive self-study program delivers both vocabulary and real language in natural context. It offers a simple and engaging multimedia learning environment, providing guidance yet leaving you in control to learn at your own pace.
Go Ahead, Say Something
The Transparent Language System's main program screen is modeled after a book for simplicity and a fun, interactive experience. The book interface provides easy-to-follow chapters and pages for lessons to help you find your way around the program. If you don't know where to begin, we recommend starting with Byki. Learn more than 2,000 words and phrases, author and share lists, and enjoy fun activities with Byki Deluxe, a flash card system that will rapidly build your vocabulary base.
Next, take the vocabulary you have learned and apply it to the lessons in the Transparent Language System. In that program, you can improve your listening, reading, grammar, and speaking skills. You can do the lessons in the recommended order or, if you prefer, jump around to customize your learning experience.
Start each lesson by learning key words and phrases.
Now, use your new vocabulary to build your reading and listening skills.
Next, participate in realistic dialogs. Record your voice, and then play back the conversation.
Learn at home and on-the-go
The Transparent Language Complete Edition comes with dozens of Byki Pod MP3 files for you to use on your iPhone, iPod touch, iPod nano, or any other MP3 player. You can also take your language learning on-the-go with the free Byki Deluxe mobile app for iOS and Android devices.
The mobile app presents the familiar 3-step learning process: Preview It, Recognize It*, and Produce It*. Features include:
Twitter™ Integration - This unique feature delivers a real-time Twitter search so you can see real-world examples of how people use the terms you are learning in actual conversations.
SlowSound™ - This audio control slows down the pronunciation of the words and phrases. Combined with native speaker recordings, this feature lets you hear every nuance of a language, so you can reproduce and master its proper pronunciation.
Searchable Phrasebook - The search feature provides you with a quick reference in your native language, allowing you to easily find the foreign language words and phrases you need.*Written modes are not available on mobile versions of Byki Deluxe.
Have Fun and Speak Confidently.
After practicing with Byki and the Transparent Language System, have some fun with activities and games, including:
- Fill in the Blank
- Multiple Choice
- And much more!
Learn and Never Forget.
Byki automatically records your learned material and reminds you of older items that may need to be refreshed or studied again. Plus, you can use the built-in tests and online quizzes to test your knowledge at any time. By doing so, you will take your language knowledge from your short-term memory to your long-term memory in the quickest possible time.
