    Language Teachers Can Now See How Their Students Are Doing

    February 22, 2014:  We have just added some cool new features that we think will make it much easier to teach foreign languages.

    Teachers can now see exactly how their students are doing.

    Learn Your New Language in 84 Hours!

    Eighty-four hours of studying Spanish (or your new language) can change your life! If you study your new language with for one hour per day for 12 weeks (that’s 84 hours total) you will be able to speak it well enough to travel in countries where your language is spoken.

    You will be able to travel without translators or guides. Of course, you’ll be able to do a lot with your language even if you don’t plan to travel.

    A Very Specific and Bold Claim!

    When you study with for 84 hours, you will be able to go from nothing to being able to deal with “most situations that you are likely to encounter while traveling in a country where your new language is spoken.”

    If you want to re-learn a language you learned once (and have since forgotten) you’ll get it back even faster.

    You will also be able to “describe experiences and events, dreams, hopes, and ambitions and briefly give reasons and explanations for opinions and plans.”

    Those quotes are from the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages description of the B1 level of competence in your new language. That’s not a “native speaker” level of competence, but it may be what you need.
