Hello Two years ago, I set out to make ideal language teaching tool. Anyone who has learnt a language knows that media content in the language you are learning is an essential ingredient in learning a language. With this as the basis, I made an app that uses stories as the centre piece of its teaching. The app is called Cascade Spanish and it teaches Spanish using Spanish stories (literally). The stories are designed to teach you Spanish from you just reading and listening to them without using a dictionary or flashcard. For more information, see https://www.cascadelanguages.com.au/
I have been learning Spanish at school and university for 10 years and after having spent the last year living and working in Buenos Aires, I finally reached the pinnacle of my Spanish language learning. I was fluent, or so I thought! A month after I returned to England I found myself losing the fluency, obviously you may think, but you underestimate the confidence that comes when you get fluent! I was trying to assess this situation and how I could go about fixing it. I couldn't fly back out to Argentina or Spain for that matter, far too expensive and I have to finish my degree. I talk occasionally with my Argentinian friends and I watch and read about everything that interests me, in Spanish. This has massively helped me and kept me engaged with the language and I am slowly getting back up to the level I was at when I left Argentina. What are your methods of maintaining a high level in a foreign language? What makes you tick when learning?? I am intrigued to know! Personally I cannot stand grammar exercises!
