Introducing the best language learning system in the world: HB 2.0

| 34 comments | Category: learning languages, positive mentality

What’s the best language learning system?

So many people keep asking me this question, so I want to settle it once and for all.

It’s not Rosetta Stone or LiveMocha, it’s not Pimsleur, it’s not LingQ, it’s not any book you can find in your local library, or any podcast that you can download.

If you have been wondering what you should invest in, today I am going to tell you the one system you should be using right from the start!

Years of experimentation in seeing those who apply this system immediately, and those who don’t, have convinced me that there is no argument that this is the best language learning system you can ever get access to!

Look no further than HB 2.0!

HB is based on the most advanced technology on the planet. Unlike the competition, this system comes with the following automatically integrated:

  • Advanced voiced recognition and feedback-based correction: get instant corrections on your mistakes as you make them!! This feedback is timed for only the most crucial mistakes in early stages, which will help you advance overall much quicker.
  • Context based recognition! Even if you do make mistakes, the system automatically adjusts for this and derives what you mean from the context – you are encouraged to attempt to do the same with the system yourself
  • Completely natural language, with an advanced memory bank of slang, idioms and cultural references
  • Pressure-based instant requirement to speak. This feature is challenging, but ensures that you will improve on your level quicker than you ever can in other learning systems.
  • An almost infinite database of interactive conversations: you’ll never run out of material to work on!
  • Built-in positive reinforcement. This system automatically detects when you are running into difficulty and provides encouraging messages to get you back on track!
  • Completely portable!! You can access your HB system on-the-go! Use it on buses, trains, while going on walks, at social events, or from the comfort of your home.

Great! How can I get access to HB 2.0??

You’ll be glad to hear that, unlike many language courses, using HB to progress in your target language won’t break the bank!

Actually, it’s very reasonably priced! Many times at worst it will cost you no more than the price of a coffee! In fact, I’m going to tell you how to get one (or several!) free of charge!

Many people think that using HB to improve their language skills is out of their reach. Let me reiterate that you do not need to go abroad to get a copy. HB designed especially for your target language is available just around the corner!

Isn’t HB only for advanced users?

It is commonly believed that you should start with other systems before transitioning to HB 2.0 or that only “advanced” users should consider accessing it, and only when they feel “ready”. Some people even actively avoid HB at all costs as their strategy. They believe they are preparing themselves before upgrading.

This is simply not true – the features that I have listed above are not included in other learning systems and this makes them vastly inferior. You will always learn slower and more inefficiently if you use the totally unnatural and non-intuitive competition. Satisfied users of HB 2.0 will testify that it is a more efficient and practical application that produces quick and real results.

I have used HB 2.0 myself from the start in language missions (how I do so is explained in great detail here). There is no comparison.

Stop waiting, stop using inferior systems and invest in HB 2.0 today!!

    Nice post! I knew what the answer was from the title, but couldn’t figure out the initials until you linked to it.

    And I somehow missed the Facebook tip in the past… Added a few local groups and events that I don’t want to miss.

    Thanks!

      I’m sure regular readers will be familiar with what I’m talking about, but I still wanted to write this post, since it seems that HB needs a sales pitch based on all the focus on the competition for language learning. So I decided to write that sales pitch ;)

      Glad you found some people on Facebook!! Have fun meeting up :D

    Great wake up call! Sometimes we want the complicated to make it feel more official or something – but simple is almost always better. And Human is always better.

      That’s the point I was trying to make in the article ;) I hope others see it too!!

    Great post! I think avoiding human beings when learning a language is symbolic of the culture many of us live in today… always trying to do everything ourselves.

      I know – people think all this technology to aid us is “progress”, and I’m a big lover of technology myself, but you simply can’t replace humans with TVs, podcasts and computer programs.

    Damn – I’ve been using HB 1.5. Maybe I need a firmware update.

    You know it takes a funny post like this to point out how absurd it is to avoid using the language in favour of an alternate ‘system’. Very clever. :)

    • http://www.fluentin3months.com/ Benny the Irish polyglot

      Thanks ;) Nobody seems to be doing HB much sales-style promotion, so I want people to consider it over the competition :D To me it really is absurd to use anything else as the core of your focus.

    Keeping it simple means keeping it easy, cheap and highly effective. Good job Benny! Why people stay enclosed at home falling asleep at verb conjugation charts thinking they are “learning” is beyond me. People power!

    • http://www.fluentin3months.com/ Benny the Irish polyglot

      Studying verb conjugation charts isn’t that big an issue with people reading this blog. It’s simply not being social enough. People ludicrously call watching TV as their *sole* learning strategy as “natural learning” citing babies inability to speak as their proof. Using TV and other passive means are an excellent augmentation to any method, as you’ll be sharing with us soon, but the core of it should be HB 2.0 in my opinion ;)

  • http://www.fluentin3months.com/ Benny the Irish polyglot

    I wrote it intentionally that way. I want to list the “features” that HB has as if it was in direct competition to other systems, which in a way it is! But I’m the only one writing sales pages for HB :P

  • Finalca3

    Oh you trickster you.

  • http://www.fluentin3months.com/ Benny the Irish polyglot

    There is no “Benny method”. I’m promoting actual use of languages through consistent conversation with people, which has been in use for millenia but ignored in recent times for academic and input-based strategies. If you don’t improve after genuinely trying to converse with people on a regular basis then the universe owes you a drink for not working properly.

    Hi Benny.
    I was wondering if your course would work for passing the written parts of the language test too. I mean you did it, but did you only use the techniques outlined in your guide? Or those C2 passes are due to combining the guide with other methods as well.

    ok, more particularly, I want to pass a EURO C1 from Spanish first and than from German later on. (I already have the English one down)

    What do you think? Thanks for your reply.

    • http://www.fluentin3months.com/ Benny the Irish polyglot

      Don’t buy my Language Hacking Guide to pass the C1 test. I wrote only about improving your spoken abilities – so I feel it would contribute to helping you in the oral part, but there are other aspects to consider depending on the exam, and I never talk about writing in the entire book. I apply my spoken techniques to writing, but never explain it and might do so on the blog some day.

      What I did use from my “method” in the German C2 exam last year was the general technique and the positive attitude, which I talk about in the guide. That may help you, but in general just read this post to get a basic idea of what I did right and wrong http://www.fluentin3months.com/c2-exam-results-and-analysis/

      I don’t think any particular book / course is going to help you dramatically except for the (unfortunately) academic ones designed specifically for the exam. There are no clever shortcuts included in them, but sadly for standardised tests (apart from perhaps memory techniques), pure blood sweat and tears are what will give you the pass!

  • http://www.fluentin3months.com/ Benny the Irish polyglot

    It’s like comparing integral based differential calculus to playschool mathematics, isn’t it? Although speaking in a real conversation (despite not being “ready” for deep conversations etc.) is way more satisfying :)

    Great job!!

    My HB2.0 isn’t working. But I think it might be user error. :)

    Thanks! I love this t-shirt :P

    You are definitely missing something. Look at the links in the article to get what I’m talking about.

    Hahaah~ At first, I was really convinced that there was a computer-language-learning tool called HB. 
    XD
    I even followed your link, and it took me a second to realize what you meant. 
    Human Beings, huh?

    Will HB 2.5 include feedback from Charlie Sheen?

    Bah. There is no product to buy and forget about in less than a week, I’m disappointed.
