Frequently Asked Questions
No, the ArtyEnglish and HoloMeme (Holo-MeMe) group of websites is meant to help you with Fluency and Memory Training. Since one of our principal aims is to NOT TEACH YOU ENGLISH but teach you HOW TO LEARN ENGLISH (ie teach yourself), it can be used in conjunction with any English course you are presently studying.** It incorporates many different kinds of activities. The activities have been designed more as means to motivate you to learn English and make you WANT to LEARN. We hope that through them you will see the necessity of English: to help you THINK & FEEL & BE in a different way; to become ENTHUSIASTIC in your studies.
