Incredible Features: The Proof Is In The Results

Glossika delivers one-of-a-kind audio training available nowhere else: Comprehensible Input x Spaced Repetition x Substitution Drills x Transformation Drills, all exactly how native speakers express themselves. No endless clicking on boring software pictures necessary. Seriously Hands-Free! No clicking on SRS software to determine if you’ve learned a sentence because we’ve made this obsolete. If you haven’t learned a sentence yet, don’t fret! Let your mind loose and it will all come together with the more sentences you do. Audio features include: Colloquial Style (no rigid formalities so you can start talking with friends right away), Accurate Translations (bilingual comprehensible input audio all throughout, translated for expression as a native speaks, not word for word). We listen to our users and the language learning community. Glossika is built upon some of the most outstanding talent within the polyglot and language learning community.

World’s #1 Polyglot Stamp of Approval

“I love it! …seriously. I think what I love about the whole Glossika system is that you have basically put into a concentrated pill what I would have normally done with hundreds of books myself. The first thing I do is buy as many books and samples of language as I can, then analyse, collate, look for patterns, transformation exercises, shadowing, replacement exercises etc. You have done all of that with REAL language – not the stuff you usually get in most language learning courses. Of course – it should be used along with as many other learning resources as you can get. Your product allows a lot of what would have been done on the field before to be done off the field – and better prepare you for the field.” -Stu Jay Raj (speaks multiple languages from 6 different language families)
