                              LANGUAGE BRIDGE


  The LANGUAGE BRIDGE is self-instructional course of express

learning of foreign languages. The Language Bridge is a new and

effective instrument in acquiring English or Russian, (available

now), or Spanish or German or French languages (will be available

4th quarter 1993)  by native speakers of English, Russian,

Chinese, Japanese, or Spanish languages.

 The Language Bridge is based on three unconventional statements:

    1. A person does not  think in his or her own native language.

A person thinks in his or her own code language, which is directly

and uniquely related to his or her native language.   This creates

an illusion that we think in our native language.

    2. SPEAKING is a process that takes place without the involvement

of our conscience; it is purely an automatic process and hence a

subconscious one.

 When we SPEAK, i.e., express our attitude toward a certain situation

that we evaluate with our conscience, we fulfill the task

automatically -- we do not think HOW TO SAY.

When we attempt to learn a foreign language, we often try to speak

using our conscience: in doing so, we are trying to accomplish  an

unnatural task.

    3. A foreign language  should not be memorized but rather

acquired through training by using multiple simultaneous repetition.

The word blocks of a new language should never be mixed or compared

with your native language.

 A student uses his or her own native language  only for creating

an image or depicting a situation that is intertwined with foreign

language word blocks.  Next time when the situation  arises with

similar images, you will automatically pronounce correct word

blocks, as you do subconsciously in your native language.

 The strength of the Language Bridge self-instruction course

consists in that it helps any student become talented in acquiring a

foreign language by overcoming the main reason of failure -- our

attempts to bring a foreign language through the native tongue.

Language Bridge facilitates student's reorientation or attunement to

the main component of a modern foreign language study -- creation of

the link  IMAGE = WORD in contrast to the existing techniques that

use the link WORD (ENGLISH) = WORD (FOREIGN  LANGUAGE).  Further

progress in the study of a foreign language by any other advanced

level or grammar-based approach will benefit tremendously if given

after initiation into a foreign language by using the Language

Bridge technique.

 This nongrammar-based approach helps to open a childlike part of

your mind and is of a special value for both  acquiring a foreign

language in a school or a college and for prevocational training of

ESL for {*filter*}s.

 The failure of attempts to learn a foreign language in school

is  preprogrammed because there is nothing in common between

learning any subject in school and learning a foreign language.

The mechanisms are totally different.  The reason of poor mastery

of a foreign language is our trying to memorize it but our memory

has a unique self-protective capability: it keeps stored

information only for a certain time if you use the information

frequently.   Besides, the response time of memory is low and

insufficient for a fluent expression of our thoughts.

 The text arrangement  of the lessons in the LANGUAGE BRIDGE is

unique and based on the premise that a spoken language consists of

blocks of words.  Each text consists of three or four short lines

that  contain a block of words; this arrangement facilitates visual

memorization of described images and situations.  After multiple

simultaneous repetition, the situations described in the lessons are

easily intertwined with the block of words, thus creating  an

automatic link IMAGE=WORD(S).

 The Language Bridge is currently designed for speakers of Russian

or English to learn one another's languages;  the technique can be

adapted easily to teach students in any language. The book is

supplemented with 6 audio tapes of all 31 lessons recorded in

special  English (or special Russian) by a native speaker. Each

lesson consists of a text and drills.  The first ten lessons are

based on a small number of words and images for initial

familiarization and drilling.  The following  21 lessons consist of

independent, individual texts on various conversational topics such

as: Your House, Visiting Friends, Buying a Car, Job Interview,

Buying the Week's Groceries, Hunting for a Job,  Chicago, Getting a

Driver's License,  Computer, etc.  The main objective of the drills

is to restructure the speaking process by developing a separate

language center in the brain for the new language and transferring

one's  knowledge of the new language to this center.

 The Language Bridge book provides complete dictionary for all 2300

words which are used throughout the course and an adequate

translation of all lessons and drills. You may  look into a

dictionary or into  the text translated into your native language,

but while you are reading the translation,  follow the words with

your eyes and bite your tongue slightly  between your teeth to keep

from vocalizing the words involuntarily and focus on the image of

the situation created in your mind. After multiple simultaneous

repetitions of  word blocks  recorded  in a foreign language,  while

having a clear vision of the situation in your mind, these words

will become linked to your own mental images.  If you follow  the

Language Bridge plan and work a few hours each day, after 6 weeks,

I guarantee,  you will be able to converse fluently in your new

language environment.
