2. How do I get the most out of Blue Canoe?

Your brain is a muscle that needs practice to learn to perceive and pronounce new language sounds. Playing Blue Canoe for 10 minutes or more each day will help you improve quickly, and is better than only playing once or twice a week for a longer period of time.

Go to Settings, and turn on the Reminders, and set them so that you get a notification for a convenient time of day on weekdays and weekends to remind you to play.

As you go about your day, try to apply what you have been learning in Blue Canoe to your daily conversations. Notice where the main stress is in words, and the color of the vowel.

Follow us on social media, and we will periodically send you interesting tips and short lessons via email. Do your best to read these, and participate. The more you immerse yourself in learning, the more you will get out of it!
