In this modern era of information, the world is growing closer than ever before. Effective communication has never been more important than it is today. Speaking multiple languages allows us to better understand our neighbors, our friends, and our business associates. So why is language learning so difficult? Others have taught us to reverse engineer it. They do it BACKWARDS.
When we are children, we learn to speak a language by THINKING in that language. We listen to our parents speak and try to discern what they are saying piece by piece – learning the language naturally, as our brain is wired to do. We learn sentence structure, grammar, and vocabulary as one, coming to understand the world around us through our dominant speech patterns.
In March of 2017, some previous employees of CTI and some new faces came together to buy JtG from him in return for fulfilling all previous back orders. It was a slow start in the beginning, but UM eventually created an upgraded version of JtG that we’re using to start fulfilling all of the back orders with.
And, well, that brings us to now! The ball is rolling, and we’re not only fulfilling our promise to those still waiting patiently for their decks, but offering our new and improved products for sale. We know some of you may feel hurt and mistrusting after your experience with CTI, and we certainly understand why. We don’t demand that you put your faith in us; we’re going to give you proof. Contact us if you have any questions at all, and know that we will strive to always put all of you first and foremost.
Unnamed Method is a company dedicated to furthering communication between cultures by flipping the script on this outdated process. By gamifying the language, you learn the sentence structure in advance. As you become more familiar with the game, adding expansion decks expands your understanding of the language, the culture, and the thought process of the people who speak that language.

The picture is clearly in the background of every card to draw attention to the text, which is the most important part for the game of course. In addition to the main deck, the Conjugations, Travel, Food and Kaiju expansions I got are sure to make this a fun experience... this linguist is now happy - thanks!!
