Learning a new language couldn't be any easier: academies, intensive courses, summer camps, traveling abroad... Which one is your method? You might have learned English playing RPGs: or you understood what was going on or you couldn't play. It might not have been a very orthodox method, but it's definitely an encouraging way to learn vocabulary and grammar. However, with new technologies, we've now got more formal ways to learn at home. Dexway is Telefónica's solution to learn American English, British English, Spanish, French, and German. Let's see how.

The best linguistic immersion lessons, free speech dialogs listened personally be your tutors that correct them by text and voice.
From the lessons section, you can complete exercises on your own account without having to move from the sofa. The contents of each lesson are split into:
- Listening and repeating.
- Reading comprehension.
The program will ask for permission to record you from your computer's microphone, so that your teachers can listen to your pronunciation and correct you to help you improve. You can also listen to yourself and compare your accent to that of a native speaker. If you're embarrassed by putting on a British accent in front of your mates, it's your chance to start showing off.
