You Wanted To Learn A New Language in 2014? Try Czech & Danish

January 17th, 2014

Hi listeners!

Looking for a new language to study? We’ve just added 2 new languages sites to the Innovative Language family which bring us to a total of 31 languages that you can learn the fast, fun and easy way! 

What are they? Based on user requests, we’ve launched Czech and Danish.

Czech, believe it or not, used to be called “Bohemian” until sometime in the 19th century. It’s the official language of the Czech Republic, one of Europe’s most popular tourist destinations. And like all Slavic languages, Czech has a reputation for having lots of consonants clustered together. But don’t let that scare you away. Czech uses the Latin script, which makes it easier to learn than a character-based language like Russian. And it’s not too far from Russian either, so learning either language will give you a huge advantage with the other!

Click here to sign up & take your first lesson at CzechClass101!
Click here to sign up & take your first lesson at CzechClass101!

Danish is a Scandinavian language and will be easy for any English speaker. Worrying about the alphabet? No need. The Danish Alphabet also uses the Latin script plus three additional letters, Æ, Ø, and Å. Danish is spoken by over 5.5 million people and Denmark is consistently rated as one of the happiest countries on Earth. So, if you’re looking to visit Denmark, make sure to drop by DanishClass101.com and take your first lesson!

P.S. Join the Founding Fathers Club and learn Czech or Danish at 50% OFF for life! The Founding Fathers Club is a lifetime 50% discount exclusively for early adopters - more specifically, the first 101 subscribers per site. Learn for as low as $2/month for Basic or $5/month for Premium. The price will always be the same, even when the deal is gone. And the deal is gone once the first 101 spots are taken.

ItalianPod101 Featured In TheGuardian.com’s “Top 10 US podcasts for road trip listening”

September 18th, 2013

Hi Listeners,

Done with a lesson? Take a look back at the new conversation, grammar, and vocab you’ve mastered.

It’s always great to stop and see the results in your language learning! Or rather, hearing the results when you’re speaking a new language!

Likewise, for us, it’s great to know that someone’s language is progressing with the help of our lessons.

This past July, we’ve been graciously listed in Top 10 US podcasts for road trip listening in TheGuardian.com, one of the most read newspapers in the UK.

Below is an excerpt:

ItalianPod101.com

I’m sure people think I’m crazy when they see me talking to myself as I drive. Imagine what they’d think if they knew I was doing it in Italian? Listen to native speakers conducting conversations, and imagine yourself sipping un doppio cappuccino at a cafe in Piazza Navona. After you’ve ordered in Italian, of course! Go at your own pace, pick subjects or phrases you need to know for an upcoming trip or for a conversation with a friend, and repeat lessons as often as necessary.

• Tune in at italianpod101.com

Crazy or not, talking to yourself is one effective way to boost your speaking skills and remember the language you’ve learned!

We’d like to thank Salena Lettera at The Guardian for putting us in her top 10 Podcasts. This motivates us to produce more fun, fast, and easy language lessons.

Perfect Your Pronunciation with the Improved Voice Recording Tool!

August 19th, 2013

Hi there listeners,

You’re regularly exposed to native speakers and conversations in our lessons. But do you actively practice pronunciation and the proper accent?

If not, now’s the time to start. How would you do it?

Simply listening and repeating speakers isn’t enough. You need to hear how you actually sound as opposed to how you think you sound .

So, naturally, recording and comparing yourself is one of the best ways of knowing how close your language is to that of a native speaker.

In fact, you can start doing this with your lessons on any of our 101 language sites.

We’ve upgraded & re-added the Voice Recording Tool into your lesson pages. If you’re a Premium member, you’ll find the Voice Recorder in the Line-by-Line Audio under “Lesson Materials.”

For each and every lesson, you can use the Voice Recording Tool in conjunction with the Line-by-Line Audio to…

  • Listen to the conversation, line by line, and hear the native speakers’ version
  • Record yourself after hearing the native speaker
  • Playback your version to hear your pronunciation and compare
  • BONUS: Playback both (the native version and yours) simultaneously to hear how close you are

  • (sample screenshot taken from JapanesePod101.com)

    To Access The Voice Recorder, visit any lesson and click on (2) Lesson Materials. In the Line-by-Line Audio Tab, you’ll see a microphone by each individual line of the conversation.


    (sample screenshot taken from JapanesePod101.com))

    Click on the microphone icon to load the Voice Recorder for that specific line to hear the native speaker. Then, press the record button to record yourself. Once you’re done, you can either listen to the native version, then your version to compare, OR play both simultaneously to see just how close you are to the native speaker.

    So, listeners, test this feature out and let us know what you think! For all bugs, errors and suggestions, please shoot us an email at info@innovativelanguage.com

    For iOS Users: Please note that the Voice Recording Tool requires Flash to work. However, we are working on a non-flash (HTML5) version of the Voice Recording Tool. Stay tuned for future updates.

    To your fluency,
    Team Innovative Language
