Transparent Language subverts traditional ideas about language education by emphasizing vocabulary over grammar. Language programs follow a system geared toward the brain's separate systems of memory, declarative and procedural. The declarative system is engaged as students first learn vocabulary in the form of individual words and longer phrases before activating procedural memory through internalized grammar education.
Transparent Language has educated more than 12,000 schools and important institutions such as the Foreign Service Institute during the past 20 years. While training tongues to form new words and phrases, Transparent Language also enriches the world around it by supporting endangered or heritage languages, and delivering free learning materials to aid workers in disaster areas across the globe.
