You can rapidly learn ENGLISH or ANY NEW language.
Just 100 words comprise 50% of all words used in conversation in a language. Learning this core 100 words gets you a long way towards being able to speak in that language, albeit at a basic level.
The 100 basic words used in English conversation are shown below:
|1. a, an
||13. (I) can
||14. (I) come
|16. (I) find
|21. (I) go
||25. (I) have
|31. (I) am
||34. (I) know
|36. (I) like
||38. (I) love
||39. (I) make
||64. (I) see
|71. (I) tell
||72. thank you
||78. there is
|81. (I) think
||88. (I) use
Numerous studies have revealed that in every country, native-speakers use only about 850 distinct words on a daily basis. Studying these language building blocks is the key to rapid assimilation and internalization of any new language. With this approach, it's not how many words you know, but rather, which words you can use.
Learn Basic English
In Just 850 Words
Created by linguist and philosopher Charles Kay Ogden Basic English is a simplified subset of regular English that is easy to learn and allows you to fully express and speak to native English speakers and be fully understood.
It consist of just 850 words that can be used to say EVERYTHING in English e.g. click here to read the whole Bible in 850 basic English words or take a look at The complete ABC of Basic English online at Ogden Basic English.
Imagine learning just 850 words and being able to
speak English fluently!
By aiming each lesson at teaching you those 850 words, this approach teaches you to speak the most in ANY language in the least amount of time.
This entire approach is what language learning should be: quick, fun, and easy. Many foreign language students have difficulty learning. Their textbooks teach monotonous drills, grammar rules, and random lists of words. But textbooks alone can never bring it all together. Your only real goal in taking any language course is to speak that language naturally with others.
This approach is so effective because it traces how people developed language. Before written history, we had oral history. Most people, even Kings, couldn't write or read in ancient times. Some people can't even read today. Most language learning systems fail to acknowledge that writing only exists to represent the words we speak. So you should ask yourself, "Why should I learn to read a language if I can't even speak it?"
Immediately immerses you in the language to help you grasp the sounds of that language.
Amazingly, once you understand the oral patterns, that chaotic, "foreign" sound so common to language learning disappears instantly. You'll start to recognize words. This approach will help to change your perception within your first 30 minutes.
All Our Language CD's Use:
The Bulgarian physician Georgi Lozanov devised a language learning method called Suggestopedia. The Suggestopedic method consists in exposing the student to an audition of pairs of items, following a certain rhythmic pattern.
At the same time, instrumental Baroque music in Largo tempo (60 beats per minute) is played back.This kind of soothing, rhythmic music is intended for inducing a state of relaxed alertness on the learner. This method is supposed to improve recall performance by at least 25%
Experiments by Lozanov and his successors in both Europe and America showed that Baroque works are best as they are often made up of regular patterns i.e. rhythmic and melodic variations on a theme, following a somewhat mathematical pattern. Only instrumental music (i.e. string orchestras) should be used as voices (even choirs) and instruments standing out against the orchestra are likely to distract the student. Ideally, the orchestra must have a neutral color (the same instruments be played throughout the work).
Brain Wave Entrainment
Certain brain states are associated with enhanced learning. Brain wave entrainment is a simple technique where the brain can be artificially induced into a particular brain state using special audio frequencies.
When signals of two different audio frequencies are presented, one to each ear, the brain detects a phase differences between these signals and a perceptual integration of the two signals takes place, producing the sensation of a third "beat" frequency. This third "beat" frequency "entrains" the brain into the correct brain wave state associated with improved learning ability.

Frequently Asked Questions
How is language naturally acquired?
Languages are naturally acquired by people listening to language. The human brain is built to analyze it. In many parts of the world there are no language schools but people still manage to learn 4 or 5 languages. They do it because it's part of their lives. They go down to the market, they find people talking in 4 or 5 languages.and due to their exposure to the constant repetition of each language's words and sounds, their brain begins to absorb these 'foreign' words and phases - making sense of them - naturally. Before long the language has become internalized - and they begin to understand and then to speak.
How does this approach mirror this?
The way language is naturally acquired in real-life second language learning situations is by listening to the language itself. And analyzing it yourself. The people who learn second languages most successfully, are not those who go to language schools. If you go to a language school, you tend to go somewhere where they have a special theory about how language should be learned, and they impose that theory upon you. But actually, the human mind is constructed to learn language. That's one of the basic things. Just as a spider spins its web, so too do people acquire language. It's just as natural as that. If you try to constrain that process by imposing some regime that you've thought, theoretically, that ought to work, it really doesn't help. Success lies in the ability to mimic natural language acquisition insofar as any teaching method can.
What is the key to language learning?
You have to ask yourself, why is it that so many people try to learn foreign languages and fail abysmally. I think there's 2 reasons why they fail: they're not motivated enough and they don't have sufficient exposure to the real thing. The key to language learning is a combination of these two things. Motivation, needs to come from the learner but given the learner has a reasonable amount of motivation, then the burden lies upon the course to continually present them with material that is relevant to the kinds of things the learner will have to do when they are using the language. If the material offered is produced by a native speaker of that language and is targeted to concise learning using the least amount of words possible for real communication then that motivation can only be reinforced. Since we are equipped to learn languages, the brain does the rest of the job for us.
Please explain the concept behind the courses.
From a linguist's standpoint, these courses work in a very natural manner. Lots of people try to learn foreign languages it's rather like people trying to lose weight. Lots of people try to lose weight and very few do. Lots of people try to learn foreign languages, but they get bored, they get discouraged, they find that it's too hard for them. By presenting the learner with essential material in the target language, these courses expose the learner from the earliest stage to real-life sounds and words. So, it's going to keep the learner interested and teach the learner language that can be used immediately. There's a payoff right away.
Briefly, what are the fundamentals that make up any given language?
Our brain is automatically programmed to take words and put them together. It differs from language to language, but not as much as you'd think. Every language is cut to so close a pattern, that some linguists regard them basically as dialects of one language. So, in other words, you already have in your brain a machine that is ready and waiting for language. What do you have to do? You have to learn the sound system of the language, which may differ from yours. Then, you have to learn the words. That's all you need to know. You don't have to be given a lot of elaborate grammatical rules, because your brain's already equipped to figure them out for you.
How does the brain acquire new information?
When you hear anything at all, it is stored in your short term memory. The short-term memory will hold it, but unless it is repeated and re-emphasized, it is not going to hold on to it. Many things pass, so to speak, through your memory. In order to make long-term memories, the information must be transferred. This occurs through repetition.
Why do you think this approach works?
I think what makes this approach most effective is that it allows anyone to simply listen and learn. To internalize a language - naturally. By concentrating on just 850 key core language words this approach teaches the MOST in the LEAST amount of time. Let's face it, a lot of foreign language work can be terribly boring. And one of the key elements in language learning is motivation. By removing the boredom of repetition and concentrating on just 850 key words, the goal of essential language acquisition becomes realistic.
