Advanced English 2018 is the newest version of a product that is now 26 years old. Advanced English keeps evolving. The new version of Advanced English reflects changes in the language in recent years, fixes a large number of errors, improves the wording of items with the view to improved mnemonic quality (better retention), etc. Outdated terminology has been removed or deprioritized. New terms have been added.

See a short demo @YouTube.


This version adds a great deal of sounds from Extreme English collection and new pictures submitted by users via Advanced English wiki to improve the mnemonic power of the collection.

Some statistics:

  • 20% increase in the number of sounds
  • 25% of sound files have been replaced with improved quality versions
  • 35% increase in the number of pictures


Advanced English 2018 is available in SuperMemo 17 format.

If you have SuperMemo 16, consider Advanced English 2014.

Advanced English 2014 includes an XML version, but there are XML specs differences with freeware versions of SuperMemo, and imports to older versions can be tricky.

Free update

Users who ordered Advanced English 2014 between Mar 1, 2017 and Mar 1, 2018 can receive the new version free.



Great news and looking forward to seeing this update.
