Just do it!! When I went through the Language Masters course I never really considered the Academy. But I'm glad that I came around and joined. You will not only be applying the things learned in Language Masters but you do so in a highly interactive environment. There is a private Facebook group full of like minded people who share the desire to learn a language. They share, as well as collaborate on the tasks, become your language partners and really provide a lot of support. Also, Lydia and her team are always there to answer questions, to explain anything that is not clear and provide support. For instance, I had tried the Gold List method previously but obviously didn't understand how it worked. But after learning about it through the Language Master course and then applying it during the Academy, I know that it will always be an integral part of my language learning process.
WHAT IS AUTODIDACTS' ACADEMY?
After 19 successful Autodidacts' Academies with a total of over 800 participants, we're launching another 2-month online course for people learning ANY language!
When is the Academy going to take place?
29 April – 30 June 2019
What language can I learn in the Academy?
Whichever you like! You can improve your English, German, Spanish, Russian, but also Japanese or Indonesian. 🙂 Everybody is going to learn by themselves. Let me explain; keep reading. 🙂
What language level do I need?
Any level except for total beginner. Whether you used to speak the language quite well but lost most of it, or never even achieved fluency in it, if you've spent at least 6 months learning the language and understand at least some of it, you're eligible for the Academy!
So how does it work?
50 participants are going to improve their skills in a foreign language of their choice by working hard on it for two months. We are going to communicate via a closed Facebook group, emails, and webinars (live video streams).
You don't have to participate at any of this live in the specific time. You can read/watch/catch up with everything in your own time. There will be a replay for every live stream for the whole duration of the Academy.
You set your own learning plan according to our guide at the beginning and learn German, French, or another language whenever you have a bit of time. It can be 15 minutes a day or one hour a day.
The goal is to collect as many minutes spent with reading, listening, speaking, or writing as possible. Otherwise, you'll never improve the language level and get over the biggest wave.
What does the Autodidacts' Academy contain?
Accountability Sheet for tracking your learning
The Accountability Sheet is a huge motivation booster! It helps you track every minute you spend with learning, and you're going to be surprised how much time it adds up to!
Access to a closed Facebook group
The heart of our community. Here, we tell others about our first brave steps ("I've just talked to a native speaker for an hour!"), answer any questions, and share our tested resources.
Feedback for your learning from Lýdia
I mention every active participant and their successes in our webinars. I give advice about any changes to the plan if necessary. You're going to learn by yourself, but we're going to help you 🙂
Live language forum
For two months we're going to learn how to learn languages as effectively as possible. I'm going to answer all your questions during a live webinar, where you'll have the option to go live on camera and talk about your learning.
Motivational videos every week
Every Sunday you’ll get a new video with practical tips on how to improve your listening, reading, speaking, writing, grammar, vocabulary, or pronunciation. They will boost your motivation and give you additional language-learning hacks.
Every week will be dedicated to a different language-learning area (speaking, listening, etc.) and it’ll be your task to try out new methods. The goal is to find your best combination of methods to use even after the end of the Academy.
Competitions for active participants
If you complete our tasks, you’ll be rewarded! You can get a book of your choice and the two most active participants will have a 1-on-1 consultation with me so that we can discuss your learning plan to the smallest detail.
What will you get in the
You’ll enjoy learning a language!
Are you tired of boring courses, textbooks, and learning a language because you "should”? Let’s change the way you learn Spanish or French or any other language. You won’t want to stop learning even after the Academy!
You’ll learn to use your time effectively
Learning a language by yourself (being an autodidact) is cool because you can use your time while doing household chores, walking a dog, driving, commuting to work, and so on. You’ll be amazed at how much time you’ll make to learn your language!
You’ll create a system in your learning
You’ll learn to build habits out of individual language-learning activities, and doing them won’t cost you much mental energy because they’ll become automatic. You’ll finally know what to do, when and you’ll feel empowered by it.
We’ll keep you accountable
Learning by yourself requires a lot of self-discipline. It’s so much easier when someone watches over you! Our team won’t let you forget about your learning plans. We’ll support you so you don’t give up!
You’ll get to know new methods to learn languages
The Internet gives us so many resources – we just need to know where to find them and how to use them! We’ll be listening to podcasts, watching TV shows, reading books and blogs and speaking to friends – all done in efficient, systematic ways.
You’ll be part of a motivated community
How about getting to know 50 people who are as motivated to learn a language as you are? You can schedule talks in your target language or exchange sessions in your mother tongues. Get to know nice smart people from all over the world!
You’ll improve your speaking skills
The only way to improve your speaking ability is to speak a LOT. And we put a lot of emphasis on speaking. We even have a special competition so you can collect as many hours of speaking practice as possible.
You’ll feel better in general
Doing something for your own development and doing it in a nice, organized way will do magic for you. You’ll feel that you’re finally making improvement and see other areas of your life improving as well.
Everybody learns by themselves, without teachers...
Does that work at all?
Autodidacts’ Academy is no newbie! We’ve already organized 19 mentoring programs for people from all over the world over the last three years. But let the numbers speak for themselves:
Number of participants:
(working people, moms at home, pensioners, students... Everyone is welcome :))
Number of languages:
(all kinds of languages, from Arabic through English to Slovak)
Average time spent learning:
9.1 hours a week
Yes, the participants are adults with busy lives - jobs, family, children, hobbies - and yet they manage to find an average of 9 hours a week to work on their language.
Only 9.2% of participants drop out from our course, most of them for personal reasons such as moving, unexpected job change, care of a sick family member, etc.…
If you find out that this system of learning doesn’t suit you for whatever reason, you’re entitled to a 100% refund within 30 days.
The successful graduates will be awarded
a Language Mentoring certificate!
You just have to meet a couple of simple conditions during your participation in the program and learn at least 4 hours a week (on average – if you have a bad week, you can still catch up later) and we’ll send you a beautiful PDF certificate with the exact data about your learning during the two months!

"What an amazing experience! This was the best investment into language education in my life (and I sure have invested a lot of money into language education). I loved the constant stream of motivation and the incredible number of possibilities to actively work on my English. I finally perceive English as a language, not just a mixture of sounds! And I am not so afraid of speaking anymore - that’s a huge progress."
"I’ve never achieved such progress in such a short time. My pronunciation has improved, I talked a lot, learned loads of new expressions, and brushed up on the ones I had forgotten long ago. I also improved my grammar, found out what issues I struggle with, and what I should work on. At the beginning, I wasn’t sure if mentoring would be of any help for me even with my level of language. But it helped a lot, and I’m happy that I’ve participated. :)"
If the course does not meet your expectations or you don't like it for whatever reason, you will be entitled to a 100% money-back guarantee. All you need to do is write an email to firstname.lastname@example.org within 30 days of receiving your login data and I'll send you your money back. There's no catch, I'm giving you my word for it.

Frequently asked questions
• Who is the Academy meant for?
For anyone who wants to spend two months actively learning a language. Our experience is that members of the Academy spend as much as 8 – 15 hours a week learning the language because of the amazing motivation in the community and new, fun methods that they discovered thanks to the Language Master video course. If you want to improve your language once and for all and learn how you can become a true autodidact yourself, you will benefit greatly from this Academy.
• How is the Autodidacts' Academy different from the Language Master video course?
The video course provides the know-how about language-learning methods. You can watch them and apply them on your own time. The Academy is a two-month motivational program that will make sure you apply them over these two months. With the help of Lýdia, a language mentor, and a community of 50 other learners, you'll experience possibly the most active language-learning period you've ever had. People who learned with us in the previous Autodidacts' Academies have achieved much better results than those that only watched the video course. The Academy helps people overcome laziness and keep their learning discipline high.
• I want to learn a language, but I’ve already enrolled in another course.
No problem at all! The language-mentoring methods can be beautifully combined with any other way of language learning, regardless if you attend a course, take private classes, have conversations with a native speaker, or use software to learn at home. Autodidacts’ Academy will help you find a better system in your learning and enrich it with new elements.
• Why can’t I join the Academy without buying the Language Master video course first?
The Autodidacts' Academy is not a language challenge where people just meet together and learn as a community. It is an online program that teaches both HOW to learn and then motivates people to really do it in practice.
If you do not watch my videos from the video course before the start of the Academy, you will soon have many questions like “How am I supposed to learn vocabulary?” “Where can I find interesting series and videos?” “What am I supposed to focus on in my learning?” etc. The Language Master video course provides answers to all these questions. The know-how in the course is truly comprehensive, and I know from experience that even active language teachers and people who already have been learning languages by themselves can find a lot of new information there.
• What if I find out that this kind of learning doesn’t work for me?
You still risk nothing. You can ask for a refund within 30 days from the beginning of the Academy – just write us an email. You don’t even have to explain your reasons. It’s a new way of learning; that’s why you can try it for a month without any risk.
