Learn to speak German with the Birkenbihl

Approach

The Birkenbihl Approach is a special language learning method that

has been developed for brain-friendly and easy language learning.

The underlying secret is that the brain first needs to be exposed to the

language for a while, before the learner makes any attempt to speak

the language. The same procedure occurs when children learn how to

speak their native language. Basically, the learning process involves

active and passive listening. Active listening means listening to a

recording of the foreign language, German in this case, and at the

same time reading the translation of this text. Passive listening, on the

other hand, is listening to the recording of the text without reading

the translation into the mother tongue. Passive listening might

happen during the learner engages in other activities.


This language learning approach has proven successful for any

foreign language and any level of previous knowledge. The language

learning technique can be employed to any text and any language.

Computerized German language learning software is offered as well,

to make learning German easier than ever.
