When you’re learning a language, sometimes you need an upcoming overseas holiday or a newfound love to push you to study. While we can’t help you with your travel plans or love life, we can give your language learning a jumpstart with our italki Language Challenge!

THE CHALLENGE

Complete 20 lessons by the end of September and win 30 USD in language credits!

This is italki’s third language challenge, and this time, we are giving you not 2 weeks, not 4 weeks, but 6 WHOLE WEEKS to complete your lessons on italki. On completion of the 20 lessons, we will give you 30 USD for language lessons. Most important, you will have improved your language skills. Nothing beats learning and winning at the same time.

When you are learning a language, you need an extra push now and again. That’s why we are launching our 3rd italki Language Challenge!

Here’s Sam, our Community Manager, to give you a quick rundown of what the Challenge entails!

You will be able to Pledge to enter the Challenge from August 15th, 2013 onwards.

italki Language Challenge January 2013 in cooperation with OpenLanguage

In January, our 2nd italki Language Challenge took place, with participants from all over the world, learning languages from Russian to Arabic.  They all had a common purpose in taking the Challenge - to motivate themselves to improve their foreign language skills.  And, it looks like it worked! Read on to find out how it helped our students.

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.”
