But the Parrot Method is outdated. It’s not true learning that sticks in your mind forever.
(Think about it. If these old methods worked, wouldn’t we all be fluent after years of high school Spanish?)
So with regularSpanish learning courses using the Parrot Method, you might memorise some grammar rules. Maybe a few verb tables.
You might also pick up some vocabulary, if you Parrot it enough times!
But here’s the trouble:
When you finally speak Spanish with a real person, you draw a blank!
That’s because you can say some memorised phrases, but you don’t have any skill with Spanish.
You can’t go 'off script'. You can’t improvise. You can’t say how you really feel.
And you almost certainly don’t understand the replies! (Just like a parrot.)
The result? A one-way conversation.
Worst of all…
Because the Parrot Method is nothing more than the kind of short term memorising you did at school, you’ll soon forget everything you learned!
I invented a new approach to language learning, based on scientific rigour and years of experience. With my 'StoryLearning method, you can leave the Parrot Method in the past where it belongs... and move on to something more intelligent and effective.
