A New Learning Challenge for 2013!

January 6th, 2013 | Posted by ross in announcement | promotion

Hey language learners, make 2013 the year you learn a foreign language!
Don’t let this be another year of slow progress. No matter what level or language, we know you can make real progress at italki. In order to help you, we’re offering:

italki Language Challenge January 2013 in cooperation with OpenLanguage

ITALKI’S JANUARY 2013 LANGUAGE CHALLENGE

in partnership with OPENLANGUAGE

Take 10 sessions with an italki teacher in January

and receive 3 months of free language lessons from OpenLanguage.

If you are serious about learning a language, this is a fantastic opportunity to get live one-on-one lessons AND access to great language learning podcasts, PDFs, and study tools. After taking the language challenge, you will definitely make progress towards becoming fluent in 2013!

How hard is this to do?

Last November, we ran our first italki Language Challenge. Almost 80 students pledged to take 8 lessons in 2 weeks, and more than 60 students completed the challenge. That’s roughly 80% of the students who pledged who received the prize. The bottom line is that it’s all up to you!

Did it help people learn a language?

Don’t take our word for it. Here is what one student, Grant Macandrew, says:

“I have been taking weekly lessons for over a year and had already planned a trip to a language school in China in December. I had been considering several lessons a week in order to prepare for the class and this [the italki November Language Challenge] motivated me to do just that. The pressure of being ready for class plus the extra hours I spent with tutors has increased my Mandarin learning and I feel more confident in being ready for the upcoming classes. I will consider 2 to 3 lessons per week in the future with italki.”

If you are serious about learning a language, go to the January 2013 Language Challenge page. Take the pledge and learn a language this year!
