The thing about learning, well, anything really, is consistency. When you’re learning an instrument, 10 minutes every day is better than two hours once a week. Learning a language is no different. Speaking, listening, and reading every day will make the biggest impact. I know I know, easier said than done.
But clever Lingoda has you covered. What if they threw in the idea of getting half of your classes for free, would that get you to do it?
Sorry, what was that? Free money and you learn a language? I know. And in January when everyone is feeling a bit sad, grumpy, and not very accomplished.
The new Sprint Promotion
Sign up before 19 December 2019, and your Sprint will begin on 7 January.
If you were thinking of upping your language skills as a New Years Resolution, this is perfect. You take 15 classes a month, for three months. At the end of three months, if you have perfect attendance, you get 50% of your money back. That works out to about a class every two days, which is just right when we’re talking about keeping consistent.
Personally, I’ve always wanted an excuse to just buckle down and get focused on my language learning. What if someone took me to a nice resort, made food for me every day, and we had language classes all afternoon, with snacks? Okay, I’m sure someone would be willing to do that for a bazillion Euro, but here’s a better option. Do one Lingoda class every day, on average, for three months and get all your money back. The Super Spring is just that – 30 classes a month, for three months. It’s a lot, but if your attendance is 100%, it’s free.
It’s about habits, too
Yes of course, consistency is great for learning, but forming a habit to do that learning is equally important. It takes about two months to form a habit, so by the end of your Sprint or Super Sprint, you will be so used to working on your language often, it will become second nature. Just think how far you can go with that amount of time. An average language level is 50 classes, so in three months of your Sprint, you will be almost finished. If you choose to Super Sprint, you’ll be finished a level and then some.

What I love about Lingoda classes
The classes are small, and flexible. You can book at nearly any time of day classes are available, in any time zone. Group classes are a maximum of five students, and honestly in my experience they are normally only two or three people. It gives you a chance to catch your breath, but you can’t get away with hiding in the back either, so you will get some good practice in. Lingoda teachers are always native speakers too, which is so critical when you’re learning a language away from where it’s primarily spoken. It’s the ideal way to learn a language when you’re busy – with work or with family.
You need to sign up to join the Sprint or Super Sprint before 19 December 2019, and the Sprint and Super Sprint Promotion will begin on 7 January 2020.
Classes taken before that time won’t count towards your total – it’s really important that you read the terms and conditions about this.
Participants pay a €49 non-refundable deposit (however if you complete your Sprint with 100% attendance, you will get that back as well). Payments will be made in three instalments, and if your attendance is 100%, you will receive a refund after the end of the Sprint/Super Sprint Promotion period.
After the three months, your account will convert into a regular roll-over subscription, but you’re free to opt-out of this.
So, what are you waiting for? Let’s take that language plunge together!
