Have you ever had a catchy tune that you just can't get out of your head ?
Earworms MBT (Musical Brain Trainer) has harnessed this scientific phenomenon and applied it to language learning.
This really is the first effective language course to get your toe tapping. Just sit back and relax and, with minimum concentration, listeners will find that picking up new vocabulary and phrases is easier than ever before.
Why is it so effective?
Developed by language teaching experts, Earworms MBT is based on the science behind catchy songs that stick in the head: the music acts as a catalyst for the memorisation of words and anchors the new vocabulary deep in the long term memory. Listening to melodious music puts users into a relaxed state of alertness, the 'Alpha state' the ideal condition for learning. The sound patterns of melodies, with rhythmic repetitions from a mesmeric male voice who speaks the English and a native speaker for the target language, 'worm' their way deep into the memory, permanently burning into the aural cortex -- an area of the brain from which words can instantly be recalled. In this way, essential words and phrases will literally be ringing in the ears, making the learning of a new language effortless and enjoyable. Each course comes with an integrated phrase-book that contains all the words and phrases spoken, plus the phonetic sounds of the word.
Both the audio and phrase-books contain a number of invaluable memory hooks. For example if you want to memorise the Greek
term 'Excuse me!', phonetically written 'messee ohriteh', imagine saying 'Excuse me, I've got a messy oil heater' and you will easily remember it.
