Finally, a good Occitan product!

I've searched all over the internet for a product that can teach me Occitan, and I was exuberant when I finally found this program. Since its not a well known language in the States, I was afraid that I would never learn it, but now I can.

As a student of linguistics, Occitan has opened up some very interesting doors of research for me to follow. Purchasing this product was one of the best moves i made in my study of language.

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.
