I’m going to be honest with you here…
If you’ve been thinking about learning a new language for a while, but haven’t yet managed to get started…
It’s probably because you already kinda know that what I’m about to tell you is true…
Learning a new language is really HARD! And your actual chances of success are NOT GOOD.
I mean…how many people do you know who’ve “said” at some point that they wanted to learn a new language?
And then of THOSE people, how many actually tried and succeeded?
Not many, right?
Perhaps you even know this to be true from first-hand experience.
Because the unfortunate truth is…
Virtually every language course that currently exists, both online and in-person…just kinda sucks.
And I know this, because just like many of you, I researched, compared, and even tried using most of them myself…unsuccessfully.
And as I hopped around from one course to another…I started noticing several patterns of how things were going wrong.
Most notably, the following…

The 3 Inherent Problems With Traditional Language Courses (And How We’ve Solved Them)
As I observed both myself and others using typical language courses…
I started noticing 3 very specific problems that almost all of them shared…which dramatically slow down the learning progress, and cause most people to give up entirely.
So up next, I’d like to show you exactly:
- what these problems are…
- how they dramatically slow your learning…
And how the revolutionary new Foreign Hellos Language Learning Method goes about solving them once and for all.
Problem #1 – You can’t study for more than 10-15 minutes without getting mentally exhausted.
If you’ve ever sat down to learn a new language for the first time…
Then you already know it kinda goes something like this:
- You read the spelling of the word.
- You attempt to pronounce the word out loud.
- You learn the English definition.
Then you somehow do your best to memorize all 3 of these together at the same time.
Then you do the same thing over again with a different word…and the process repeats.
The problem is, when you study this way…your brain gets exhausted after just 10-15 minutes! If you ever tried it before, then I’m sure you know exactly what I mean.
No matter how much you want to continue…you can already feel that your brain has reached its maximum capacity for absorbing new information.
Which can be terribly frustrating, especially when you’ve already set aside two hours of your day for the practice session.
Seems strange, doesn’t it? Could it really have been this mentally exhausting to learn English as a little kid?
Well…as I later discovered (completely by accident)…the answer is NO, it isn’t.
And here’s how I know…
The Secret to Language Learning That I Discovered from My 1-Year-Old Cousin
So one afternoon, at a random family get-together…
I started observing my 1 yr old baby cousin, and how she was learning to speak.
I watched as my Aunty pronounced a single word to her, over and over and she tried to repeat it.
The strange part was…neither of them seemed concerned with the word’s actual MEANING…only HOW TO SAY IT.
Curious at this point, I pressed my Aunty for more details.
Now on her 4th child, she was thoroughly familiar with the process, and was happy to share whatever knowledge she could.
As I eventually discovered (from both her and MANY other mothers thereafter)…
Babies learn to speak and understand words though the following process:
- They repeat a word over and over for days, weeks, or however long it takes until they can say it without effort.
- Once that pronunciation is hardwired into their brains, they begin the process of understanding what that word actually means, through repeated use.
- Only after they learn enough words to become conversational, do they begin the process of learning how to read.
The concept sounded simple enough in theory…but would it actually work on adults?
I decided to do a test…
I recorded an audio file of 7 new words that I was learning in Polish.
But this time, rather than trying to focus on both the pronunciation and definitions at the same time, I decided to work on just pronunciation, by mindlessly repeating the words over and over.
I did this non stop for almost 2 hours. And guess what? No mental exhaustion.
The next morning, despite having no idea yet what these words meant, I discovered that somehow they all still rolled off my tongue effortlessly.
The first half of the experiment was a success! But next came learning the definitions…
So I again recorded another audio file with the same 7 words, only this time, paired with the English definitions as well.
And again I listened and repeated, for another 2 hours. And again…no mental exhaustion. And memorizing the definitions felt 10x easier, because I already knew the pronunciations.
The next day…it was all still in my head. And the second half of the experiment was a success as well.
It all sounds so obvious once it’s explained…doesn’t it? Clearly this is how our brains have always been designed to learn.
Yet for some strange reason, this natural learning method of learning a FIRST language is completely contrary to today’s standard methods of learning a SECOND language.
Except of course, with the Foreign Hellos “Natural Infant Learning Method”, where we teach you in a way that no other course does:
- Pronunciations FIRST.
- Definitions SECOND.
And we eliminate reading and writing entirely, which really shouldn’t come until much later…
Once you’ve developed a firm grasp on speaking and understanding in real-life conversations.
Make sense? Perfect.
Problem #2: It takes forever to learn enough words to start a real-life conversation.
If you’ve ever taken a language course in a classroom setting…
Or perhaps tried one of those “interactive” online courses…
You’re probably familiar with the “practice conversations” they often use.
I say something, then you respond, and so forth.
And they all seem somewhat like a normal conversation, right?
Except when it comes time to have an actual real-life conversation…the words you want to say never seem to match up to the ones you’ve practiced.
Sound familiar? Well here’s why:
When you really stop and examine the typical “course content” from most language courses…the vast majority of it is completely useless for everyday conversation.
Here are two perfect examples to demonstrate what I mean:
- Take for example the word “apple” – Sure…it sounds like a word that you might learn in kindergarten. But really try to imagine how often you would ever use that word in the first 5 minutes of talking to someone? Almost never, right?
- Now take for example the phrase “good afternoon” – Sure…that’s something you COULD say everyday if you wanted. Same with “good morning” or “good evening”. But in every single one of those situations, you could accomplish the exact same thing by just saying “hi”. So why waste time learning all those different greetings early-on, when you could just learn “hi” and start a conversation with that?
It all sounds terribly obvious, doesn’t it?
Yet its a problem that almost all language courses have in common.
And the only explanation is that they either don’t know, or don’t care about the actual goals people have when first attempting to learn a new language.
But what are those goals exactly? And perhaps more importantly…what AREN’T the goals?
Well after talking for years with hundreds of students just like you and me…
Here are 3 facts that I found to be true for 99% of us:
- We don’t want to READ – We don’t care about the alphabet, or grammar, or punctuation. We only care about talking.
- We don’t want to be FLUENT – We might say they want to be fluent when asked. But really, we only care to know just enough to engage in everyday interactions.
- We don’t want to have “serious” conversations – Instead we only care about two types of conversations: functional – for solving problems and getting their questions answered… and fun – for making friends and flirting with the opposite sex.
Beyond just this basic level of conversation, we’d rather advance our language skills by building real-life relationships with people, and engaging in real-life discussions…
Ideally after just a few weeks to a few months of practice…
Rather than sitting in a classroom for years, taking tests and having hypothetical conversations with computer programs and classmates. Correct?
So when I originally created this course just for myself…
I approached it with a primary goal of ONLY needing to study for the absolute minimum amount of time required to get the exact results I desired.
With the help of a few of my world-traveling buddies…we collectively looked over all our travel experiences over the past few years…
And set about completing the following list of tasks:
- We came up with a detailed list of the most common social situations that occurred over and over again…regardless of the country. And organized those situations into a series of chapters which would make up the framework for the entire course.
- Within each chapter, we brainstormed a list of all the potential things that were likely to be said in that particular social situation…And then carefully narrowed down the list to a manageable number of 7-10 words and phrases which were the most useful and commonly-used of all.
- We had the list examined by a native speakers in each language…to make sure that everything made perfect sense, and the phrasing was both casual and conversational, as opposed to proper and academic.
- Once everything looked perfect, we had professional native translators record the audio files for each chapter…so that the pronunciation of every word was 100% accurate.
And when it was all over and done with, I looked at what we created and realized that…
There were only a few hundred words and phrases IN TOTAL…that were really necessary to learn…
According to the collective traveling experience of some of the smartest people I knew.
And with some solid practice, a few hundred words could be learned in almost no time at all. Don’t you think?
And that’s exactly how we solve Problem #2 for you with the Foreign Hellos “Master Word List”.
Problem #3 – Almost no one has enough free time to commit towards dedicated practice.
Despite the fact that we already shortened your study time with the “Natural Infant Learning Method” in problem #1…
And we shortened it even further with the “Master Word List” in problem #2…
The unfortunate truth is that in today’s world of packed daily schedules…
Very few us realistically have much time to add new pursuits into our already busy lives.
Which is why the traditional method of language learning, which requires your eyes, your ears, and your hands (in other words, your FULL attention)…
Is simply not practical for the vast majority of people.
And it was one of the first, and most obvious problems I noticed when I first started comparing the pros and cons of the most popular language courses on the market.
At the time, I was hopping between countries on a weekly basis…and I knew I didn’t want to waste my days away in a hotel room trying to learn the local language.
Instead I wanted something that allowed me to learn during my downtime, as I was doing things that I knew I would be doing anyway.
- While cooking
- While showering
- On trains and buses
- At the gym
- While hiking
- At the airport and on the plane
In order to do that, I knew it would need to be an “audio-only” course…
Which I could listen to on my headphones as I was doing other things.
Surprisingly, very few courses offered this style of study…
And even those that did, still suffered from problems #1 and #2 which we covered earlier.
So to solve this problem, the Foreign Hellos “On-the-Go” Audio Course organizes each chapter into a series of small mp3 files, which you can download directly to your smartphone, and listen to at any time during your day…
As long as you have the freedom to repeat the words out-loud.
So those are the MAIN benefits that the Foreign Hellos Language Course has to offer.
