1. What makes Blue Canoe different from the thousands of resources for learning English?

Blue Canoe combines brain science with artificial intelligence. We are born with the ability to understand ALL of the languages of the world through the learning center of our brain. As we mature, our brain suppresses the sounds it does not hear on a regular basis in an effort to work at optimal efficiency. It requires rewiring our brain to recognize language sounds that are different from our native language. This rewiring involves bypassing the language center our brain to use, instead, the areas that interpret music, rhythm, colors, images and kinesthetic learning.

We have all experienced hearing a foreign singer who sounds perfect when singing in English, but clearly has an accent when speaking during interviews. That is the effect of bypassing the language center and using the part of the brain that interprets music.
