LANGUAGE APPS REVIEWS
Michel Thomas Italian
beginner to intermediate
The Michel Thomas Method has always been highly praised as a great way to learn a language. Well now, there's an app for that. Unfortunately, it's not a free one, but with flashcard games, it does have an advantage over the CD set alone. In fact, the price is actually very reasonable in comparison to other products that will get you to the same level.
The great thing about the Michel Thomas Method is that it’s perfectly suited for those of us who have memories of dread of language lessons at school because there’s no need for note taking, textbooks, or homework. You just listen. It really is that simple. Some find the method odd as it doesn’t begin with your traditional numbers and colours as we’ve grown to expect from our early language learning experiences. However, what it does do is give you useful sentence structures from the beginning using language that can be manipulated to suit your needs. Think of it as providing you with building blocks, all in a relaxing way.
Lindsay Dow is a dedicated language tutor, blogger, and video maker from Milton Keynes, England. When she’s not teaching languages, she’s learning them herself and documenting the process of lindsaydoeslanguages.com and her YouTube channel. When she’s not doing that, she’s playing with her tortoise Gonzo who speaks a grand total of zero languages.
