Has the coronavirus outbreak left you with lots of free time? Let’s see how you can make the most of it!

In recent weeks, we've seen a rapid growth of interest in learning languages at home, which is why we're here to help you learn.

You might also want to know…

• Should I choose the Language Key or the Language Master course?

If you want to begin learning a new language from scratch, i.e. you’re a complete beginner and you don’t even know the basic phrases, choose the Language Key video course. If you’ve previously learnt the language you want to work on, for example at school or in a language course, you know the basic phrases and perhaps understand a little, but have forgotten a lot, choose the Language Master video course. It’s suitable for lower intermediate to intermediate students.

• What’s the difference between the Language Master and the Autodidacts’ Academy?

The Language Master video course will teach you how to learn a foreign language on your own as an intermediate self-learner. It consists of a series of videos, and once you’ve purchased your access to it, you can watch them at any time, even all at once if you wish. With lifetime access, you can go back to the videos whenever you want. The Autodidacts’ Academy is an extension to the Language Master – it’s a 2-month-long course in which we apply the methods learnt in the Language Master into practice together. You’re still a self-learner, but you’re not on your own anymore – you work under the supervision of a language mentor and in a support group of 50 self-learners – which makes it a lot easier! In order to enroll, you also need to have access to the Language Master video course.

• How does the Autodidacts’ Academy actually work? What does self-learning in a group mean?

The Autodidacts’ Academy is completely different from any course you’ve ever attended. Its basic premise is that 50 people learn a(ny) foreign language on their own, i.e. everybody uses different methods and materials (which they chose from the Language Master video course), while at the same time, we all keep in touch with each other and share our language learning experience with the rest of the group. We record our learning progress in an accountability sheet, which motivates us to really give it our best for the two months. We don’t have any grammar lessons with a tutor – instead, we have webinars, in other words, online meetings, during which we can speak to other participants as well as the language mentor who leads the group in their efforts by asking how they’re achieving their language goals and what problems they’ve encountered, rather than teaching the language itself. We also communicate through a closed Facebook group and, twice a week, you receive an email with detailed information on what’s going on in the course and what your next task is. You get a Weekly task, which typically consists of trying out a new app or learning method. If you want, you can arrange an online conversation “lesson” with your classmates to practice speaking. Everything is based on voluntary decisions of each member.

• What if I find out this way of learning is not for me?

Don’t worry! You’re not risking anything, as there’s a 30-day trial period during which you are eligible for a full refund. The trial period starts on the first day of the Autodidacts’ Academy or on the day of getting access to your video course. If you find out you’re not happy in the Academy, just send us an email. You don’t even have to explain why you’ve decided to stop. It’s a new way of learning, which is why we want to make it risk-free! However, we speak from experience when we say that 99% of people love this learning method, since everybody can tailor it to their own needs. Nevertheless, everyone is eligible for a full refund for all of our courses.

• I’m not sure my level is good enough for the Autodidacts’ Academy, especially when it comes to speaking.

This is a common concern of our course participants and 90% of them find out right at the beginning that they needn’t have worried at all! :-) The Autodidacts’ Academy is not a course for advanced students already fluent in speaking a foreign language – they don’t need our help with learning. Most of the participants are roughly at the A2-B1 level and speaking is usually their weakest spot. You don’t have to worry about being the worst in the group. Unless you’re a complete beginner, it means you’ve already studied the language for at least a year, for example in a language course, and you understand the basics in simple articles or videos, and in that case, the Autodidacts’ Academy is a great choice. Once you get to know your classmates and find out they’re just as shy to speak as you are, your nervousness will vanish and making progress will suddenly be much easier together with everybody else. Conversation with classmates is not obligatory (although we will try to motivate you to try it out as much as we can) and you can always choose someone who’s at a similar level to you.

• When does the next Autodidacts’ Academy open?

We’re opening the next Autodidacts’ Academy in April.

• I want to learn right now since I have plenty of free time due to the coronavirus outbreak, but I don’t know whether I’ll have enough time once things go back to normal. Should I sign up anyway?

The Autodidacts’ Academy is a course made for people living a normal life, not just those with an abundance of free time during this turbulent period. So far, more than 1,500 people have participated in the Academy, most of which go to work, look after children, and pursue other hobbies as well. In the Autodidacts’ Academy, you are the master of your time – it’s entirely up to you how much time you want to spend with learning and you’ll get a chance to reassess that in the middle of the course and cut back if you need to. The Autodidacts’ Academy is fully adjusted to your time schedule and you yourself decide how much time you can allocate to it. Even if it’s just half an hour a day in the second half of the course, you’ll progress significantly, because you’ll have found out how to do it. Not to mention, you can really make the most of the extra time you are likely to have during the first few weeks.

• I want to sign up for the Autodidacts’ Academy, but the current term doesn’t suit me. Can I secure a spot in a later Academy?

Yes, you can, if you’re planning on joining within the next 6 months. After clicking on the green button on this page, the system will automatically assign you to the next Autodidacts’ Academy. All you need to do then is to send us an email saying you wish to join later and we’ll arrange the new term with you. We’ll be happy to meet your needs, so that you can enroll at a time that suits you best.

• Do I have to wait until the Autodidacts’ Academy begins to start learning?

Not at all! Within a few minutes of your payment, the log-in credentials for the Language Master video course will be sent to your email address. If you choose payment by card, the whole course will be available to you in a matter of just a few minutes. You can start watching the individual modules of the video course and create your study plan. Once the Autodidacts’ Academy begins, you’ll get to know your “classmates” and you can continue your learning with a fresh dose of motivation. But if you’d prefer to wait with your learning until the Academy begins, feel free to do that, too – it’s completely up to you!

What happens once I purchase a course?

If you purchase the Language Key or the Language Master video course:

1) If you've decided to learn on your own with a systematic manual from the video course, all you need to do is order your access to the video course HERE (if you are a beginner and you want the Language Key course) or HERE (if you are at the (lower) intermediate level and you want the Language Master course). If you wish to purchase both video courses, there is a possibility to choose both of them in each of the order forms. Fill in your details, choose your payment method, and confirm.

  • a) If you choose payment by card/PayPal/Google Pay, you’ll be able to fill in payment details right after sending the order. We’ll receive your money immediately.
  • b) If you choose payment by bank transfer, you’ll receive an email with the bank details for the payment. After that, just log into your internet banking and send the money to us. We should receive it the next business day.

2) The log-in credentials will be sent to you just a few minutes after we’ve received the payment for your order: so, if you pay by card/PayPal/Google Pay, you should get them in a short while.

3) The whole video course including all the videos will be immediately accessible, and you can watch it all at once or watch just a couple of videos every day. It’s up to you.

4) Once you’ve completed the course and filled in your study plan, you can start learning with the new fun methods introduced in the videos.

If you purchase the Autodidacts' Academy
mentoring programme:

1) If you want to take part in the next Autodidacts’ Academy, which begins in April, secure your spot HERE.

2) Once you’ve paid for your order, we’ll send the access to the Language Master video course to your email address. This course is available immediately after the payment, which means that you can watch the whole video course or just some of its parts before the Academy starts and, if you want, you can start learning a little.

3) You’ll have lifetime access to the Language Master video course, which means that you can go back to the videos even once the Academy is over.
