Learn to Use Language Learning Materials Like a Pro!
One size does not fit all, that’s why we teach you a variety of techniques to find an approach that suits your style. Our methods have been refined to allow you to learn languages the SMART way.
Feel the Language, Feel the Fun!

Progress Like You’ve Never Seen Before
You’ll learn how to measure your progress and breakthrough the plateau by following a quarterly plan that’s based on doable, everyday habits rather than vaguely lofty goals!
The course is designed to help you get a firm grasp of Luca's Bidirectional Translation method, tailor it to your own needs, and apply it to any language you wish to learn.
In this introductory module, you will get a bird's eye view of the structure and content of the course and how to learn from it in an optimal, fun and effective way.
You will learn exactly what the Intermediate Plateau is and why it poses such an obstacle for learners who wish to reach fluency. By utilizing the three essential components of fluency, you’ll assess your current language proficiency; this will help you gauge your progress as you implement the methods taught in the course.
You will be equipped to overcome any obstacle you may encounter on the journey towards fluency. This will be done by transforming your limiting beliefs into liberating truths and connecting emotionally with your target language..
You’ll understand when to learn, what content to learn from (and how to find it), how to practice in the most effective way, and how to prioritize different kinds of practice for both your skill and energy levels.
Learn how to find and organize a near-limitless amount of language content for improving your language skills at an intermediate level. This involves choosing high-quality, authentic resources, and adapting them so that they provide an optimal language learning experience, no matter your current level.
In this module, you’ll learn a comprehensive, step-by-step process for taking authentic target language podcasts and use them to grow both your listening and reading comprehension skills over time.
In this module, you’ll learn a comprehensive, step-by-step process for building a thorough understanding of target language video content. By deeply analyzing such audiovisual content, you will be able to grow your listening and reading skills, and deepen your knowledge of the target culture as well.
You’ll earn to love reading as a tool for growing a deep and sophisticated vocabulary in your target language. Intensive Reading will help you gain a full understanding of any short text in your target language.
In this module, you’ll learn exactly how our brains go from seeing a piece of information for the first time, to transforming that information into a long-term memory. Your understanding of this three-part process will help to contextualize why many of the memorization techniques in this course are organized the way they are.
Leverage your knowledge of the three phases of effective memorization in order to effectively memorize any piece of target language knowledge for the long-term. In particular, you’ll learn two techniques which will help you better memorize learned content, no matter how busy your schedule might be.
In this module, you’ll learn about a concept known as “Language Activation”. The goal of this concept is to take all of the passive language knowledge you’ve gained through all of the input methods in this course, and steadily “activate” that knowledge so that you’re ready to use it to practice output skills, such as speaking and writing.
Conquer the scariest part of learning a new language—actually using it with real people! To start, you’ll begin by learning the 5 Principles of Smart Speaking, which will turn the process of learning to speak from a frightening obstacle to a fun and fruitful learning experience.
The centerpiece of this module is a powerful, three-part activity known as the Smart Speaking Session. You will learn to have regular short conversations with a native-speaking language tutor and later analyze these conversations for maximal learning and long-term growth. Additionally, you’ll learn seven powerful techniques for getting the most out of your speaking practice, no matter the occasion.
This module focuses on using a disciplined daily writing practice as a means for improving your ability to think and use your target language, with the added time and flexibility that comes with writing your target language, rather than speaking it.
Take everything you’ve learned and transform it into straightforward, well-structured, and fun daily activities! By breaking down your learning schedule into three-month chunks, (which are further broken down into weekly and daily chunks, in turn), you’ll develop a system that works for you and your needs.
