Patent for Sale:Active Training of English Skills is much faster than conventional Passive Learning
Primary Application of the Technology
1.5 billion English learners worldwide need a disruptive invention that would allow them to become fluent in English in about a year. To create a new solution for a language company is extremely difficult since it requires erasing the old belief system and adopting a new belief system. There is a shortcut to achieve the same objective faster and cheaper – acquire this patented proven solution in the language market and implement it as your own solution. The great advantage of the patented solution consists in that it introduces the subconscious process of training English skills that is much faster than conscious passive learning; besides it allows recycling of existing materials and transferring them into the Training English skills environment.
The Problem Solved by the Technology
How the Technology Solves the Problem
Simultaneous repetition results in the habit of thinking in the native language being turned off automatically since performing three actions at the same time fully occupies your attention and you cannot do anything else, including cross-translating. Simultaneous repetition helps learners establish direct wiring between words in English and images or associations which they describe without reverting to cross-translation into the native language.

Frequently Asked Questions
When a learner continues thinking in his native language and tries to translate his thought from the native language into English and produce an English sentence, he fails. This is an unnatural process and explains why many Chinese can read and write in English, but so few can speak English or understand what others say to them in English. The patented technology removes the main barrier to learning a foreign language: it silences “the tyranny of the mother tongue” and allows training of English as a specialized skill by using subconscious learning. As they experience familiar situations exclusively in English, the learners acquire the ability to speak in English automatically without the need to translate what they hear and want to say to and from the native language. Learners are surprised to discover that the subconscious, stress-free training of English skills is much more efficient than the Chinese Way of learning, and they virally spread information about the application that lets people acquire the English skills quickly and easily.
2. Why conventional methods of learning English belong to passive learning and have a high failure rate?
Conventional methods of learning English split the language into different components (reading, writing, listening, grammar, and vocabulary) and try to learn them separately. Learners can't use this information subconsciously or automatically. That is why learners are not able to communicate in English as a foreign language; they continue thinking in their native language and subconsciously translate the incoming information into the mother tongue to make it comprehensible. Passive learners can’t think in English.
Training English skills is in sharp contrast to the Passive Learning. In the patented method, the learner trains all English skills simultaneously: reading, speaking, writing, grammar, and pronunciation while re-experiencing familiar situations in English. All these situations are familiar to Chinese speakers since support in Mandarin is a part of the mobile application.
EACH LEARNER speaks 80% of the class time when using mobile devices with an earphone and a microphone — irrespective of the number of students in the class. During training, the learner’s brain absorbs patterns based on intuitive grammar and develops a good ability to think in English. By showing contextual translation for ten seconds at a time, Active Learning eliminates the habit of cross-translation, which is the main barrier to clear thinking in English.
3. Why is it hard for adults to become fluent in English?
This is a million dollar question. When we find the true answer to this question, we will be able to answer a host of related questions correctly. For example, why all children are 100% capable to learn any foreign language whereas adults have about 95% failure rate in learning a foreign language? Or why can't adults learn languages like children do?
The main negative impact of using the mother tongue in creating the second language system is associated with cross-translation. Most adults, when learning a foreign language, subconsciously revert to cross-translation to and from their mother tongue. Cross-translation is the main barrier most teachers ignore. When you cross-translate, you think in your native language while trying to speak in a foreign language.
Children do not have the cross-translation problem and acquire any language in their environment subconsciously by forming direct links between symbols or concepts and words or phrases in the new language. So, every language that a child learns becomes native to him. Children preserve this ability until about 12 years of age.
The new pedagogy is based on concurrent triple activity: reading, listening and speaking. In other words, to become successful learners they need simultaneous repetition: repeating while listening and reading at the same time. Simultaneous repetition delivers the tool that turns off cross-translation or the natural habit of thinking in the mother tongue.
The difference between the conventional methods of Passive Learning and Training English skills is similar to the difference between the flat-earth thinking and round-earth thinking.
