Before we answer this question, keep in mind that there are many different types of training you can do on Glossika. If you are an experienced language learner, feel free to do Glossika training your way.

Listen carefully and repeat after the native speaker as much as you can.

In the session, you’ll hear the source language first, and after a few seconds, you’ll hear the target language. 

Practicing one sentence counts as a rep (read more: What does Rep mean? Why calculate the number of Reps?). Listen to the target language carefully, and repeat as much as you can after the native speaker. Focus on your pronunciation, flow, and tone. It’s okay if you just mumble. The more mumbling you do, the better you’ll get.

During the training, if you need more time to think or repeat, just adjust your Settings (read more: Settings: Fine-tune the Features that Suit You the Best).

Continue until you reach the end of your training session. 

After the training, you’ll see a “Session Completed” page. Be sure to submit your feedback so that the algorithm adapts to your learning speed and level.

Do One Session a Day

We recommend doing one session a day (and to get a good night’s sleep before you do your next session). If you have more time and would like to keep practicing, we recommend clicking “Replay” and do the same training session one more time. You can also do different types of training, for example:

  1. Interpretation Training: listen to the source language and see how well you translate the source language.
  2. Dictation Training: listen to the source language and the target language, and write down the target language. This tool is already available in the Glossika interface for several languages.
  3. Extended Training: translation practice, typing practice, fill in the blank and learning a foreign writing system are several more tools that we’re rolling out for each language.
