How the site works

Rethink Speech offers a range of modules designed to help you learn about the nature of speech and how it works.

There are open modules and unlearning modules. Both kinds are free, but unlearning modules require you to sign up as a member (using only your name and email address).

You can explore the open modules from the top menu, and get previews of the unlearning modules from the unlearning menu.

What exactly do I get for free?

Signing up for free membership to the unlearning modules gives you ten days free access to each module, sequentially if you wish.

Ten days is easily enough time for anyone to cover all the material in a module.

But if you’re worried you won’t finish the modules in time, you might find it a good idea to spend time on the open material before signing up, so you don’t waste your free member days checking out material that is open anyway.

No pressure!

When you have done the unlearning modules, you may be offered opportunities to do additional learning. Some of that might involve a fee, but rest assured there will be no hard selling at Rethink Speech!

Our main goal is to get the information in the unlearning modules to as many people as possible, so they will always be free for ten days each.

What exactly are modules??

The modules are structured sequences of 6-10 topics, mostly intriguing multimedia demonstrations that typically take about 15 minutes to work through. They are designed to help you gain insight into the (often surprising) nature of speech, and to think through the implications of your observations. Find more about the reason for doing Rethink Speech this way from the intro.

In a few cases, several modules are grouped together into a course. But they’re not courses in the usual sense. There’s no facts and figures, and definitely no tests. It is all about conceptual and experiential learning. You can get a good feel for Rethink Speech modules by working through Experiencing Speech (an open module).
