Excellent introduction to a beautiful language

If, like me, you have long wanted to learn the language of your roots but you hesitate to embark on this adventure alone, go for it!

TeachMe is an easy to use and effective learning method. Installing the CD-Rom is a breeze and it takes only minutes to master the operation. Learning is divided into a good mix of vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation that permits you to progress rapidly and without even realizing it.

For me the big plus of this method is to provide opportunities for all learners, including beginners, to practice Occitan at their own pace and according to their desire. So to increase the number of people who speak Occitan, get learning!

Excellent

This Occitan course is really incredible.
With the Audio CD with stories, you can easily pick up the pronunciation in a couple of days and in a week, you'll be able to read and understand the stories.

As well, the CD with exercises is a great long distance 'teacher'. You can modify the level according to you needs and you can select your own way of working.

For me, as a Catalan speaker, I believe it is good to learn Occitana, the language of the middle ages and de the Troubadors, the nicest language in Europa.

Conversing in short order

I wanted a product, that was easy to use and a teacher from Toulouse told me about TeachMe! Occitan. He had tried it out and found it good. Based on his comments, I got myself a copy.

There was an Occitan evening in our town a while ago and I was really surprised how much I could understand. I could recognize the words I had learnt and I could follow the conversation without too much trouble. Afterwards there was singing. I was able to sing along as, thanks to TeachMe! Occitan, I could read the lyrics quite well.

I like to use the Auto-Lernen Funktion and I do a bit of vocabulary and then a bit of grammar. I was using the setup 'Occitan/German' in the beginning, but having now achieved a base vocabulary, I've set it up to learn 'German/Occitan'.

For the last few days, I've been writing all the letters of the words which helps me retain the new words I learn. I also read the stories regularily and it's getting easier and easier to fill in the missing words.

TeachMe! makes learning fun. It's very interactive and the repetitive process really helps you to learn quickly. I'll be conversing with the locals in short order.
