ACCELERATED LEARNING is the most advanced teaching and learning method in use today. It is a 'total system' for speeding up and enhancing both the design and learning process.
Based on the latest brain research, it has been proven time and again to increase learning effectiveness.Brief History/Overview:
Between 1950-1980, in depth research into memory and learning was carried out by numerous psychologists, notably Dr. Georgi Lozanov, who applied the results to a method for language learning called Suggestopaedia.
This was the first attempt to apply a teaching method which held the same ideals and theories to what is known today as Accelerated Learning. The journal stated that:
'Suggestopaedic teaching methods ... are completely different from all other methods of teaching. After continuous research, twenty UNESCO experts from different countries came to the following conclusions:

(SUGGESTOPAEDIA - Desuggestive Teaching Communicative Method on the Level of the Hidden Reserves of the Human Mind by Dr. Georgi Lozanov)
'In the last couple of decades, large advances have been made into our understanding of the brain and the learning process... This new research has allowed us to look afresh at the ways we teach and consider how relevant they are in light of what we now know about how an individual learns most effectively.'
(Brin Best - Award winning Educational Consultant)
The 'Accelerated Learning Method' of teaching is based on this research.
'Each of us has a preferred learning style - a way of learning that suits us best. If we know and use the techniques that match our preferred way of learning, we learn more naturally and because it is natural, it becomes easier and because it is easier, we learn quicker - Accelerated Learning.
We also now know that we do not have a fixed single IQ, but a range of at least seven or eight different forms of intelligence. Individually, we tend to develop some of these more than others and prefer to use them. These differences help account for our own individual personal learning styles.
We also tend to prefer using one or more of our senses as we learn. Some of us are more visual, others more auditory, and others, more physical - preferring a more 'hands-on' approach.
The key factor is, if the way we are taught closely matches the way we like to learn, results improve significantly and the time taken to learn is reduced - Accelerated Learning.'
This is why the KAZ Touch Typing accelerated learning program is so effective. Using a multi-sensory approach throughout, it enables the student to use their preferred way of learning, engaging the major senses of sight, sound and touch simultaneously, radically enhancing memory retention and recall - followers of Nero Linguistic Programming will recognise this.
In addition, the five trademarked and scientifically composed phrases in the program use specific letters, training and engaging the same fingers of both hands. The fingers working symmetrically and simultaneously is the direct result of both hemispheres of the brain working at the same time - 'brain balance'.
The KAZ Typing Tutor course innovatively integrates music, imagery, animation, spoken and written language along with interactive instruction in order to achieve a learning experience that closely matches each individuals preferred style of learning.
