Why learning Chinese (Mandarin) with Linkword works for dyslexic learners
“Dyslexic students who study languages have difficulties hearing sounds, connecting those sounds to letters, sounding out words and memorizing new vocabulary. They also struggle more in reading and writing activities”. (Google)
Linkword deals with the problem that dyslexic learners have with the sound of foreign words by making very strong links between the English word and another English word that sounds like the foreign word to be remembered (the Linkword). This acts as a stepping stone to remembering the foreign word. Very quickly the Linkword drops out leaving the learner knowing the foreign word.

Win win experience
What is not to like …. A Win Win situation .
I cannot recommend this approach to teaching and learning highly enough.
If you find absorbing and retaining new information challenging …this course is for you.
If you need learning to be fun and stimulating.. this course is for you.
This is the best form of language teaching I have experienced… ever ..and I have been working within the education system for over 40 years .
I personally have been diagnosed as having moderate dyslexia and found learning a foreign language extremely difficult. Linkword language has transformed my ability to understand , recall and confidently use the French I have studied . As I have said at the outset of this review a Win Win experience.

I like it
I like it. It’s something good for people who suffer from ADHD and dyslexia. It sticks for longer.

Excellent course. I am a visual learner and have found the link word methodology really helpful. I can’t believe I’m actually enjoying learning Italian! I searched for a course that suited dyslexic learners and this one is very good. Support from Michael at Linkword Languages is very prompt and helpful. Highly recommend.

The mnemonic videos are powerful to aid in memorization
The mnemonic videos are an excellent way to teach a foreign language to any student, but particularly those who are dyslexic. The visual component and the mnemonic are a powerful combination to help with memorization. It is also an enjoyable way to learn vocabulary and grammar. I’ve taught more traditional methods, and I believe this is the best.

Truly the easiest way to learn a language
Having tried a number of language learning courses I always found it almost impossible to retain the information. Then I stumbled upon Linkword Languages and found its word association methods an absolute deal breaker for my limited retention abilities. I used it for massively improving my French a few years ago and I am now back as a customer again in expanding me Greek.

‘I have mild dyslexia and learning a language in class was difficult. The linkword method as an alternative works very well for me’.

Easy way to learn lanuages for someone with dyslexica
I have dyslexica and this is a super easy way for me to learn different languages while on the move. Although I would like to see more languages added to linkword in the future like Swedish, Norwegian or Danish.

We have conducted a study on dyslexic learners, showing that when they used Linkword , their level of vocab learning was equal to that of non-dyslexic learners-this has never been shown before. We also published, in the Language Learning journal, a study at Rugby school, where a class of poor language learners, involving dyslexic learners, greatly improved their end of term exam performance compared to previous exam performance by using a Linkword course.
