The Jiveworld Method is designed to help intermediate-level learners overcome the difficulty of following the native spoken language they hear on the streets and in the media. Authentic speech is different from the made-for-study kind: there is much more variety in both the usage and the sounds.

To be fluent you need to be able to understand the language as spoken in different accents and locales. Instead of simplifying the language to meet the level of the learner, our method exposes you to the "real thing" and gives you the tools you need to work comfortably with it, while keeping your ears active.

See Uncommon sense about language learning for more about the Jiveworld approach.
