To find a language learning software program that meets your needs you need to be able to identify great features! To find great features, you need to realize that the developers of every software program are for the most part egocentric. Basically, they believe that their features and their way of teaching is the best and the only way! Knowing this information is really important because you need to have your mind focused on being neutral towards each software program, its features, and most importantly its brand name!
The reason that I recommend a person having a neutral mindset is because it prevents them from making judgments based entirely on a brand name software program! I am sure that at some point or another we have all found out that brand name isn’t always the best.
A language learning software program with great features always covers the teaching fundamentals. Teaching fundamentals are the basics of any language and are more formally known as grammar, vocabulary, reading, writing, speaking and listening comprehension. For a software program to give you the best shot at becoming fluent in a language you need to have lessons that teach these fundamentals. Learning tools are other features that can make a language learning software program great!
Learning tools and their names vary widely from one language learning software to another. A program that has a strong set of learning tools is Tell Me More Languages! Tell Me More Languages uses a speech recognition tool, a progress tracking tool, and a personalized learning path tool. These aren’t the only learning tools they have but they are the main ones in this software program. These learning tools either help students with their overall learning process or help them focus on improving in one particular area. The speech recognition tool focuses on helping students learn how to correctly pronounce the words and phrases of another language. I really like this tool because it provides a sense of comfort to know that you are pronouncing a word or phrase like it should sound in its native language. Another feature that can set a software apart from its competition is customer service.
Customer service representatives have all the power in the world to project the image of a company. So before you think about purchasing a language learning software program, I would give their customer service department a shout out about a particular aspect of the software to see how they respond. Some language learning software customer service departments have multiple ways to get into touch with them. These include: live chat support, email support, phone support, forums, and FAQ pages. A company with a lot of different support features usually indicates that the company is really focuses on providing their potential customers and customers with the best experience in relation to their software program.
