You have probably seen video vocabulary builders where they show you a picture and a voice says what it is. The good thing about this approach is that you don't need a dictionary – you understand right away what the word means. The bad thing about it is that you may encounter each word just once in the whole course. Another downside is that you don't really learn how to speak in sentences, but just learn separate words.
We decided to take this one step further by creating videos with short sentences that could be easily understood from the context. Each word is repeated several times in these videos. We also wanted to introduce some basic grammar in these videos but avoid complicated grammatical rules. So we recorded several versions of each sentence: in past, present, and future tense, as well as in the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd person. This way, you will learn how to say sentences like "I listen to music," "I listened to music," "I will listen to music," and "You listen to music," in the language that you are learning.
For now, video vocabulary builders are available for the following languages:
We constantly add new lessons, so stay tuned! During the next months, we will release vocabulary builders for French, Latin American Spanish, and German.
