What you’ll get:
You don’t need a course to start learning a language. However, finding a method that works for you and learning tricks that will help you achieve steady results is crucial to language proficiency. Like most things in life, you can start on your own but knowing the directions and how to get there will greatly speed up your learning process.
It’s the same with business: you can do random things but if you know what to do, you will see results much faster.
And this will help you use your time better because you will know what to focus on.
This is a course for those who want flexibility and to feel independent, as well as one of the following:
We also believe that some people enjoy studying on their own but sometimes get frustrated because they aren’t getting the results they were hoping for.
This course will help and challenge anyone who is learning, has tried to learn or would like to learn a language by following this basic principle: regardless of your level of education, your age or your experiences, you learnt your first (native) language, so your body (including brain, muscles, auditory system, etc.) is perfectly able to learn and speak any other language. If you haven’t yet been able to learn a second language, it doesn’t mean you can’t. Rather, it means you couldn’t at that time. But we want you to know that it’s definitely possible once you discover how to make language learning fun and effective. So therefore the question is: why haven’t you been successful? What’s left for you to discover about yourself that will make you a successful language learner? Language learning can be really fun and above all rewarding when we see real progress and start using the language (how we use it depends on why we are learning it). This takes us to our next point:
Imagine you’re considering learning a (new) language that you love. You want to know how to be able to speak with a friend or your partner or you need to boost your career or business opportunities.
In order to speak your target language, would you go to school for two years? Three years? Longer?
Now, this may come as a surprise to you: learning a language does not require a long period of education.
What learning a language does require is understanding our learning preferences, our motivations and our goals. And once we are more familiar with these, we can progress much faster and more easily.
This is because everyone is different and the learning process requires us to accept what is specifically more suited to our learning preferences.
The self-mastery framework that we’ve created gives you the tools and strategies you need to transform the fear of failing into a compelling desire to succeed in learning a language.
Why are we so confident that self-mastery will get you there?
For starters, because many independent learners have already made use of it and have significantly improved their learning methods.
In order to learn (a language) successfully, we need to find our own method.
In order to find our own method, we need to be resourceful in moments of struggle.
In order to be resourceful in moments of struggle, we need to know ourselves better.
And we will help you with all three of these points.

If you want to study on your own but you like the idea of some extremely effective language coaching that will help you tap into your true strengths and develop your ability to learn any language as a confident independent learner, why not join our special ‘Self-mastery in language learning’ program?
I would consider myself quite an experienced independent language learner. But this self-mastery language learning workshop helped me a lot. Actually I would say, this workshop helped me to put all the pieces of the puzzle together with regards to independent language learning.
For example, I knew a lot about learning strategy, but I did not realise how important it is to apply it, rather than just to know about it. Elisa underlined a very simple connection between your goal and your activities: if you want to speak in your target language, your priority is speaking. If you want to pass the exam, your priority is grammar. But we want to have all the skills at once. Strategy is important!
I was able to manage my everyday activity to learn one language, but when I decided to learn multiple languages at the same time, I found it very difficult to manage all the activities. Step by step, Elisa and Nicolò help you master your routine. It doesn’t matter how many languages you want to learn at the same time. We don’t often realise how much time we spend on unproductive things like checking our emails or rushing to reply to an unimportant message. Nicolò taught me how to cope with distractions and moreover how to transform my ‘dead’ time in order to be much more productive.
Also, I have learnt to be very flexible in embedding my language learning activities in everyday life. I now know how to enjoy life and learn four languages every day, thanks to Elisa and Nicolò.
From the bottom of my heart, I want to thank Elisa and Nicolò for a wonderful self-mastery path that took me on through their course. Although I already had a lot of experience in language learning, I had recently become frustrated because I hadn’t made much progress in my Polish studies, although I live in Warsaw and I need the Polish language at work. However, since the self-mastery course took place during my summer holidays, I decided to apply the new methods to Turkish, which I am learning in my free time. The first class opened my eyes to the fact that I wasn’t studying Polish or Turkish in the optimal way for my character or in a way that would help me reach my goals in a time-efficient manner. Thanks to Elisa and Nicolò , I experienced a breakthrough in my language learning! I fully recommend this course to any language learner! It is a great investment in your future (and not too expensive at all)!
The self-mastery in language learning course will provide you with key insights and tools to help you significantly improve your language learning experience and master your ability to reach your language goals.
The real transformation will come from within yourself, as you will be the focus.
The online program is designed to change your language learning methodology and help you improve the quality of your learning experience: it’s less about general suggestions and more about you and your own learning path. We look forward to seeing you there!
