ROADMAP FOR the independent language learner

A proven roadmap to fluency in a foreign language


Step 1

Personal Assessment

  • Look back on what you've done up to now
  • Discover your “Big Why”, create a list of topics and situations, so we can focus on those during your 12-in-12 Challenge.

Step 2

Set up 12-Week Plan

Together we create a 12-Week Plan, with Focused Study Sessions and Exposure Sessions, and we'll choose the learning materials you're going to use.


Step 3

12 Weeks of amazing Progress

For 12 weeks, you'll execute your 12-week plan and use Conversation Based Chunking™ to learn your target language. We'll guide you through every step.


Step 4

Impress Native Speakers in Conversations

After 12 weeks, you'll have developed listening and speaking skills to hold a comfortable conversation in you target language.

Learn with a brain-friendly method

Power up your language skills with Conversation Based Chunking™ (no word lists or grammar rules required)

In the 12-in-12 Challenge, you'll learn your target language through a method called Conversation Based Chunking™. That means that you'll mainly look for and memorize word combinations (they're called chunks) native speakers use all the time in conversations. The result: fluent sentences rolling off the tongue without having to translate in your head or think about grammar rules. And you KNOW what you're saying is correct; after all, you've heard a native speaker say it too!

Conversation Based Chunking™ is backed by science and students often say it's “the most natural way of language learning I've ever used“.

Our participants' success says it all

1000+ students have taken a 12-in-12 challenge so far. Here's what they say:
