The SaySomethingin Method forces your brain to build new synapses - you'll be able to feel it happening! - and that's what turns you into a confident Spanish speaker.
You can do our audio lessons on the go - commuting, walking the dog, washing the dishes - and you have easy options for group video practice sessions (which you can also join from your mobile)
You just do what you actually need - no time wasted on pointless games or boring classroom exercises - just pure, powerful learning that makes you speak Spanish
Our entire method is based on forcing your brain to create and retain memories, which is what turns you into a Spanish speaker - it's tough and challenging, but it WORKS - you get a new set of tasks and challenges every week, complete them when and where you want, and you improve NOTICEABLY every single week.
Every week, you get the chance to use your new Spanish in a hot-seat group video with a live tutor, which brings the language to life for you (any time you need to skip, you can watch the recording instead)
If you're not delighted by your new conversational ability in Spanish, we'll refund you. In full. Even AFTER you've finished the whole course - we've never seen any other language course offer that (because their results aren't usually good enough). We live or die by our results - you WILL be a Spanish speaker in 6 months from now.
“Just 4 months later, I was watching a new S4C drama in Welsh”
I started the SSiW course in August, knowing only some basic words in Welsh. Today, just 4 months later, I was watching a new S4C drama in Welsh, and on Wednesday I had an hour long conversation in Welsh - about languages, countries and future plans :). And I have achieved all this OUTSIDE a Welsh-speaking environment, so that is all thanks to SSiW. And I consider myself a very bad student, due to the circumstances that didn’t let me devote as much time to Welsh as I would have loved to. My friends here are doing much, much better. So, I have no doubt that SSi is simply amazing.
“The most inspired and liberating approach to language learning imaginable!”
I started SSiW just over two years ago, for the sole reason that I couldn't get out to evening classes with two small children (starting at Welsh school).
I soon realised I'd stumbled across the most inspired and liberating approach to language learning imaginable! I completed all the audio-based course lessons while driving to work or doing housework, and found myself with a solid basis in the language which would have taken years of time and effort to achieve through traditional classes.
“Starting off a sceptic, I am now utterly converted”
I learned French at school, Italian at university, and German and sign language at evening classes. So I thought I was a bit of an expert in the whole language-learning thing and was a little sceptical about the SSiW approach. But as I was living in England and couldn't get to 'proper' classes it was a convenient way for me to start learning. Then a few lessons into the course I realised that this was something completely different. It was like you'd taken the useful bit of the conventional classes (actually putting sentences together out of your own brain) and jettisoned all the rest of the time-wasting stuff. I was delighted!
Yes, if you do the tasks and exercises that we set you - because they're all designed to trigger actual neurological change, so it's impossible to go through them without creating and strengthening the memories you need - as Jeremy Vine found out live on Radio 2. This just genuinely works.
No. You can work when (and where) you like. You can work through the material in exactly 6 minutes a day if you want, or you can do occasional 30 minute sessions - you can even leave it for a few weeks and then catch up in a couple of hours. The longest gap anyone's taken so far is 16 months - and he was then able to carry on from exactly where he left off.
No, you don't. You'll start to USE normal, grammatical Welsh sentences because of the way we train your brain to recognise how to put words together - but you don't need ANY formal understanding of how it works, just as you don't need to know all the 'rules' for English. And we actually prefer it if you don't write anything down - it helps put the right kind of pressure on your brain to improve your speaking and understanding.
We do, but it's too expensive for most learners (our 5 day residential intensives cost a minimum of £2,500 and our work with organisations is £500 a day). Our online courses are how we make our uniquely powerful approach affordable for everyone, and our friendly and enthusiastic community (where our tutors also answer questions) will probably be all the extra support you need.
Well, we're biased! It's certainly more convenient than being locked in to an evening class, and it's a much faster process. And we've got the social element in our video group exercises and friendly support forum, as well as our meet-ups. But lots of people find that our courses also help them get the very best out of an evening class, if they want the extra face-to-face social interaction (but don't want to get locked into the normal fairly slow rates of progress in classroom learning).
