    The interval repetition method for learning new phrases
    Memory has two different factors - the ability to store and the ability to retrieve. The strength of storage does not fade with the passage of time.

    Once information has been retrieved and the brain thinks it has reached some threshold of importance, it is retained. Storage capacity can only be increased through additional repetition and use of the information.

    You just need to follow the timeline and repeat the material through different contexts according to the interval repetition algorithm.
    Language Alter Ego Theory
    At Amolingua, clients learn how to find their way in another language and culture, gaining insight into another mentality, and acquiring the cultural intelligence necessary to build effective communication.

    This takes place through work with native speaker teachers, parsing situations from the everyday life of another culture, as well as in sessions on intercultural communication.
    FAQ
    Why is a student given a team of teachers? What is the meaning of the breakdown into several language aspects?
    In individual programmes, a student is accompanied by a team of specialists, each of whom is responsible for a particular aspect or skill. For example phonetics, grammar, basic speaking practice, speaking practice with a focus on professional vocabulary, listening training, writing...

    In this way the client can devote time to the language in a holistic way, working with a team of teachers and getting used to speaking with different people in the foreign language. This helps to quickly get over the psychological barrier.
    How quickly can I reach an intermediate level from scratch?
    Our programmes for beginners are based on the personal experience of Amolingua founder Ekaterina Matveeva in her language studies at universities, language schools and self-study. In the self-study of languages, a timetable has been developed which is used at Amolingua. It consists of a simple formula: 12 topics = 12 weeks as 12 months.

    In the case of intensive training, a client is able to graduate from A-level to intermediate B1 in 3 months. This implies learning 3 times a week, doing assignments, repeating materials, following a learning plan, and setting clear targets. You can follow this methodology either by yourself on our materials platform, in a group class, or as an individual with a team of teachers.

    So with a tutor, one module is 36 lessons. We have such detailed programmes in 6 languages: English, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, French and German. However, we continue to develop these programmes for other languages as well. We have made up stories for each language, we have written texts with useful words and phrases and we have developed theory and tasks for them.
    How long does it take to get to C1 in European?
    It all depends on the intensity, individual disposition and goals. If a client studies on a premium individual programme, starting from scratch or the basic A level, he/she may attain good B2 in 2-3 modules (6-9 months), and then work towards C1.

    This is why our programmes usually last 2-4 modules - 6 to 12 months, depending on the starting level and objectives. Our aim is to help clients achieve their goals without wasting time and energy.
    How is the individual programme constructed?
    For individual premium programmes we have an unspoken rule: personalisation. In the course of programme preparation we interview clients, collect data in order to draw up detailed objectives, desires and opportunities for training. In this way, the client receives a comprehensive approach from our team of trainers, with our database of materials, mixed with their professional materials, and materials on topics of interest in the public domain.
    What does effective communication training mean?
    When a client progresses to B1-B2, intermediate or above, effective communication skills training is connected: public speaking, presentations, negotiation, emotional intelligence, cultural intelligence, sales... everything a client needs to successfully build their career or business.

    In this way the client not only learns to speak the foreign language correctly, but also how to effectively communicate their thoughts to others in other cultures. We consider this to be one of the key skills of the modern world.
    How did Language Alter Ego theory come about?
    Language Alter Ego is a theory developed by the founder of Amolingua - Ekaterina Matveeva. Ekaterina first touched the subject in 2009. The theory implies a person creates a sub-personality while developing communication skills in a foreign language and in a foreign culture. How exactly this happens is still under research. Ekaterina has published books, given a talk on Tedx, and several podcast episodes on the phenomenon. More and more multilingual multicultural people are agreeing with this phenomenon, noticing how they change when they switch from language to language in different cultural settings.

    Ekaterina has had this experience in countries where she has lived for long periods of time: Spain, Italy, the UK, France, Portugal, Germany, China, Poland, Russia, Latin America, and the Middle East.

    In Amolingua, clients learn how to experience a different language in a foreign culture, gaining an understanding of the other's mentality, and acquiring the cultural intelligence necessary to build effective communication. You do this by working with native-speaker teachers, by dealing with everyday situations from another culture, and by taking classes on intercultural communication in a separate course.
