Mondly is based on the inductive method: learn by doing, context and example, and extrapolate to rules. In other words, start thinking in the language that you’d like to learn rather than construct a phrase in your native language, apply the rules, and only then translate it accordingly.
- Unlike deductive learning, where learners are given a set of rules they will need to apply, inductive learning is a discovery process where students discover rules by themselves by looking at examples.
- Think about those endless pages of rules you had to memorize in high school. That was no easy task. But once in a while, there was a teacher that enjoyed the job and took the time to explain all the thinking behind them properly. Only then would the rules stick.
- Learning rules mechanically is usually next to impossible. But when you understand the process, collect bits of information, and draw conclusions yourself, everything becomes easier. And that’s exactly the teaching technique Mondly uses.
- You basically teach yourself. The experts behind Mondly know how amazing the human brain is. This is why they carefully selected the content so that you’ll practice and the brain will make the connections. You’ll not focus on the process but on the final result: speaking the new language like a native.
What’s more, the main Mondly app also uses a unique spaced repetition system that improves your ability to memorize new words.
