A widespread myth about learning a foreign language
Conversational Spanish versus Graded Reader Method
In many conversational Spanish classes you will be forced to repeat sentences or phrases in Spanish. This mimicry rarely leads to long term retention. In order to carry on sustained conversations, you need a high level of mind-language integration, which comes from extensive reading. Multibillion dollar industry of language learning materials, which has a lot of influence on institutions of higher learning, sees no benefit in promoting reading. Don't trust names in the language industry, trust what makes sense.

Why a vocabulary of 2000 words is important
Adults speak at a rate of 100 words per minute. A thirty minute conversation can involve an exchange of 3000 words. A strong vocabulary is thus essential for carrying on a sustained conversation. Graded Reader Method is the fastest way of building a strong vocabulary. In this method you see words and structures in their proper context and that helps greatly in retention. Please read our method section for more detail.
