Accounting as a Second Language

The AME Learning System™ is a unique and patented teaching approach that works.  Originally designed to teach  accounting and financial literacy to non-financial managers in the business world, the AME Learning System™ later evolved into highly- effective courseware for higher education. The system incorporates the best of cognitive science, technology and learning principles into an active learning approach that emphasizes constant decision-making, real-world examples and impact over memorization.

With the AME system, students work through a set of multi-sensory interactive online tutorials which will prepare them with the key concepts they need to know before going to class. This allows instructors to better focus on the application of these concepts in class. Instructors can flexibly set up deadlines and completion conditions for all resources (including these tutorials) to build a course that works for them..

Student Courseware

Financial Accounting Principles, frames the study of accounting in a highly-practical, fully integrated and interactive learning experience.

• Perfect for both Financial Accounting and Principles of Accounting Courses

• Students have little experience with their own finances or accounting, so the AME approach starts with “personal accounting” early in the course so students can understand basic accounting logic and principles from a personal perspective before quickly moving on to applications in a business context.

• The AME approach has been proven to lead to
– a significant improvement in engagement and grades
– a significant reduction in drop-outs and failure rates
