Updated In May, 2013 - Auralog's Tell Me More language program uses advanced speech recognition technology to teach people the nine languages they offer. Tell Me More, also known as Auralog uses their own patented S.E.T.S. (Spoken Error Tracking System) that actually automatically marks pronunciation errors in red, giving the student immediate feedback and the opportunity to improve their pronunciation. This language learning software is very different from Rosetta Stone or Fluenz. This advanced software listens to you as you go through the digital lessons. When you pronounce a word wrong it will immediately let you know. Tell Me More was originally designed as a fast track alternative to traditional college language courses but has become an international leader due to their highly successful fluency program. My country town, Manteno IL, has a handful of translation jobs right now and there are only 7,000 people living in Manteno.
Tell Me More is still primarily used by students world-wide but many governments and corporations have started using the language teaching software to enhance their employees skills. Over 7 million students have used Tell Me More to learn a new language since 1987. This is by far the most advanced language teaching software listed on this site. In addition to their speech recognition program they also offer personal coaching, tutoring services, telephone conversation sessions and live online instructors that are available 24/7.
In 2012 Tell Me More covers offers courses in nine different languages. Despite being the most technologically advanced Tell Me More's language learning software are the most budget friendly. Prices vary but on average you can get one lesson for $45-$100. Most are sold in two lesson packs for $200 but some of the more complex languages require up to 10 lessons and you will receive a huge discount if you buy all of the lessons at once. For example, the English course is 10 lessons. You can buy 2 lessons for $200, 5 lessons for $309 and all 10 lessons for $449. They also offer discounted Kids lessons in most languages. Some of their languages only require three lessons: beginners, intermediate and advanced.
Their hottest deal right now is their Arabic language course. Native English speakers who also speak Arabic earn an average of $79,000/year. Tell Me More's complete Arabic course costs only $309. The average 4 year college degree holder's yearly pay is $65,000 and the cost of that education is $35,000. With Tell Me More's Arabic course you could make 15% more per year while spending 99% less money on your education in around 1/8th the time.
