About Us

Welcome to Language Bite

Language Bite is an Australasian-based company, founded in 2006. Our cutting-edge language program has been designed by a team of highly-skilled linguists and educators, with a passion for communication. Our innovative teaching method harnesses interactive technology to make learning a new language easy, fun and convenient.

Our Method

The Language Bite e-learning method has been designed for people who want to quickly and simply learn socially-appropriate and functional phrases which can be immediately applied in conversation. Language Bite's 'one bite at a time' methodology was developed in recognition of research and experience which shows that the human brain can only effectively process a limited amount of new information at once.

Many of Language Bite's customers are busy people who don't have the time or head-space for lengthy classes or instructional CDs. Lessons are therefore short and succint, enabling retention of one useful phrase before moving on to the next. Many other language courses spend a lot of time teaching detailed background vocabulary and grammatical points before 'real' communicative phrases are even introduced.

Language Bite's team of linguistic and educational experts carefully constructed a curriculum which gradually introduces the essential elements of each language, within the context of useful, everyday phrases. The digital delivery of lessons enables busy people to learn a language as and when required.
