Do you want to learn French or Spanish but cannot seem to put language classes into your schedule? The Language Learning institute has a solution for you! Our Self-Study program is like no other self-study product on the market.

By the end of our lessons, you will be able to confidently participate in an introductory conversation with a native or near-native speaker ….. listen to what is being said to you and hear familiar words! As well as understand some of the very rudimentary cultural and linguistic nuances of the given material that will endear you to the native speaker.  Undecided?  Then try one of our FREE mini lessons

Your Program and Your Choices

Join us for interactive, pause-free instructional videos that will have you speaking in complete sentences in no time! Our self-check quizzes coupled with limitless replays enforce what you have learned, lets you know how you are doing, and helps you build confidence.

Each lesson consists of 18 modules along with an introductory video giving tips to help you get the most out of your self-study with us. These modules are set up for a 4-week study period.

We have three formats from which you can choose to do your self-study:

  • The Cohort  (4-week program with a group class)
  • Bundle  (12-week program)
  • Bundle with checkpoint lessons  (12-week program with three checkpoint classes

Choice A: The Cohort

Do you like to study on your own but still want to be connected to a group? Then our Cohort format is the perfect fit for you! We schedule a particular start date for the lesson, that means that other students will be doing it at the same time as you! You will receive weekly emails from us cheering you on and helping to keep you on track. At the end of the 4 weeks, a group class is offered which gives you the opportunity to use what you have learned in a live setting!

Choices B and C: The Bundles

Same great lessons with more flexibility!

You can register for a Bundle any time and receive your lessons right away and automatically receive 176 days of access. We do not set the date of release. On top of that you are able to take individual lessons of this bundle at any time.

CHOICE B: THE BUNDLE is designed such that it is just self-study and there are NO CHECKPOINT VIRTUAL CLASSES. This bundle is for those who just want to do the study, interact with the instructional video, and complete the self-check work. Each individual lesson of this bundle can be purchased if you so desire.

CHOICE C: THE BUNDLE WITH 3 VIRTUAL CHECKPOINT CLASSES affords the same study opportunities but this package includes 3 – 45-60minute private lessons which need to be completed within 12 weeks of registering for the course.  Each individual lesson of this bundle with a virtual checkpoint class can be purchased separately if you so desire. This Bundle is Under Construction!  

These options available in both French and Spanish
