What does “Ouino” mean anyway? When we first started with Ouino in 2009, we only had the French program. It made perfect sense back then to combine the word “oui” (yes in French) and “no” (in English) to form “Ouino”, a coined word pronounced like the English phrase “we know”. We thought it was pretty clever back then. We were proven wrong when we released additional languages. We started getting referred to as Quino, or even Quinoa (very healthy food, by the way). But we had now become attached to the name. After spending years developing and researching this program, we couldn’t just throw away our identity. And it wouldn’t make sense to have a different name for every language. Plus, the word Sino refers to China, which could cause some major confusion. But in short, remember this: Ouino Languages = We know languages. 🙂
How to choose a core learning method. A lot of people have seen great results using Ouino as their core method. Many people decide to go for a free core method instead. That is absolutely fine and there are many different resources to help you. We’ve noticed however, that many people tend to jump from one free method to the next and end up losing a lot of time trying to find new sources to learn from. That precious time looking for new learning methods could have been spent actually learning the language. Having one well-organized core learning method will save you a lot of time and frustration, therefore increasing your chance of success.
