Why is speaking English so hard?
Many people successfully learn to read and write English, but still struggle to speak English. Why?
- Spoken English is very different from written English
- Our adult brains stop us from hearing new language sounds. Literally.
- As a result, the standard English teaching method of “listen and repeat” usually fails
Blue Canoe is the first effective app to solve this challenge!
The science behind Blue Canoe
The Color Vowel® System is a proven, revolutionary method to improve your spoken English, used by teachers for 20+ years to help more than 1,000,000 people. And now directly available to learners through Blue Canoe.
It works because it uses brain science to activate the parts of your brain that are still open to learning new language sounds, with images, music, and movement.
Using a color and a symbol – such as BLUE MOON or GREEN TEA – for each of the 14 English vowel sounds helps your brain to remember them.
Using your hand to highlight stress – the key syllable in a word – is like turning on a switch in your brain, and helps to pronounce the words correctly.
The repeating rhythm of the key English vowel sounds will help your brain learn the sounds and discover how to pronounce new words.
