Have you been putting off your language learning goals this year? What if you could get 2 months of intensive language learning for free*, and come out the other side more confident and closer to fluency? This autumn, join Lingoda’s 2-month Mini-Sprint and you will make giant strides in your language learning before the end of the year!

*Attend all of your classes and you could earn up to 100% cashback at the end.

What is the Lingoda Language Sprint™ and how does it work?

The Lingoda Language Sprint is a time-limited programme where you commit to taking either 15 or 30 language lessons a month. At the end of that time, if you’ve attended all your classes, you will receive either 50% or 100% of your class fees back, depending on whether you signed up for the Sprint or Super Sprint.
This autumn, we’ve introduced a new Mini-Sprint: a 2-month intensive language course beginning on 7 September. If you would like to join, you’ll need to sign up before 24 August and provide a deposit of €49 ($59), followed by two monthly instalments for your lessons. If you sign up after 24 August, you’ll need to pay the first month installment up front. All entries will close by 3 September.
You can learn English, Business English, French, German, and Spanish. After 5 November, your attendance will be checked, and your refunds issued if you have attended all your classes.

Why would I do this Sprint?

Everyone needs a little help in the motivation department when it comes to learning a language, particularly sticking to it. The promise of getting your fees back will get you over those moments of reluctance when your class reminder pings. Consistency in your language lessons allows you to really build on your skills instead of spending half your class trying to remember vocab from two weeks ago.

Native-speaking teachers mean real conversation

You will also break down your inhibitions when it comes to speaking conversationally with more frequent lessons. After a couple of weeks of taking more lessons, I started attempting jokes in German – my teachers even laughed a couple of times so that’s progress! One of the real benefits of Lingoda is their native-speaking teachers. They help you understand how real people speak, instead of the stilted dialogue options you get from apps. This kind of immersive conversation time is so critical, particularly if you’re not living where your target language is spoken all around you.

Flexible class times mean you’ll actually go

Lingoda is a flexible yet effective way to learn a language. Classes are held only online via Zoom, with native-speaking teachers, at all times of the day. You choose which classes to take, and when, and you don’t need to commit to a specific class time every week. Suddenly have a free afternoon on Sunday? You can book a Lingoda class at short notice. Teachers are based all over the world, so there are classes at any time of the day or night. If your work schedule means your free time is at 10 p.m., there are classes that suit. If you can only do two mornings a week when your child is at preschool, there are classes that fit. You’re not committing to a weekly slot, so you can find a schedule that works for you.

Small class sizes mean real progress

Classes are on average only two to three students, with a maximum of five, so every class you will get direct and meaningful feedback. I know I tend to melt into the background in larger classes, but with these small Lingoda classes, there’s no hiding in the back. While it’s a bit scary at first, I found I made real progress because I was speaking more and getting more feedback. Soon, I was attempting to express more challenging concepts and found I was braver speaking with my neighbours and friends in my new language as well.

Join the Mini-Sprint for 2 months!

Make this September really feel like a new start, crack open a new notebook, and commit to your new language. Sign up for Lingoda’s Mini-Sprint, and join over 40,000 people who have made real, tangible progress in their language learning.
