Add1 Challengers report that the challenge has helped them:

  • Discover a new inner confidence about having real conversations in another language – even if they felt terrified about this on day 1!
  • Break down the barriers that made them feel “stuck” in their language learning, so they make progress every day.
  • Find the time and motivation to keep learning, even when life gets busy or chaotic.
  • Feel connected with other language learners and create new friendships to share in your language achievements

"A really great community of language learners"

The Add1Challenge is a community of language learners who inspire one another in their language learning to reach the top of their game.

Inside the Add1Challenge, you'll find yourself part of a team of top-level language learners, cheering one another on, going heart-to-heart on wins and set-backs, and sharing personal hacks for language learning, and providing a touch of friendly competition.

I thought the Add1Challenge was amazing. A really great community of language learners.

"I went past my 15-minute goal… to 30 minutes!"

I’ve done a lot of language studying that wasn’t really focused before. Then I found the Add1Challenge and I applied and signed up. [At the beginning of the challenge] I could fit probably everything I knew about Italian into a video that lasted less than 30 seconds. And at the end of the 90 days, I made a video with my fantastic tutor that went past my 15 minute goal. The video itself lasted 30 minutes. So I had a 30 minute, completely linear conversation in Italian after studying for 90 days.

"The community will be there to support you"

Inside the Add1Challenge you’ll be assigned to a small group of people learning the same language as you, so you can share tools and ideas for learning. You’ll also be part of a “mastermind” group of Add1 community members, who will work with you to keep you accountable (and cheer you on) to achieve your language goals.

I just wanted to talk to people in a different language, and that's definitely what this challenge will get you to do. Even as life comes in the way, the community will be there to support you!

- Brandon Santos

"Really motivates you to keep trying"

With the Add1Challenge I was able to share with other people who were also having problems with motivation, and you could see that it's normal, everyone passes through that. The Add1Challenge really motivates you to keep trying! You'll get there, you will achieve your goal!

- Tanise Carvalho


"What did it for me was accountability"

The Add1Challenge includes a visual tracking tool to help you stay motivated and accountable. Seeing how much you’ve put into your language learning gives you that extra burst of motivation on difficult days when you’d rather not study.

What really did it for me with the Add1Challenge was accountability and the support from the other people who are in exactly the same boat.

- Sharon Thomas

"One of the best methods to learn a second language"

I was quite terrified when I first began because I didn’t want to be embarrassed. And I think we all have the kind of feeling where we think people are going to laugh or just think we’re ridiculous. But actually complete the opposite, all the people that I met were so thrilled to be helping you with their language. I really and truly believe it is one of the best methods by which to go about learning a second language, third language, fourth language even. It’s really fantastic.

- Eamon Gilligan


Hundreds of people like Troy, Tina, Brandon, Tanise, Sharon and Eamon have overcome their language learning barriers and completed the Add1Challenge… and you can, too.

The Add1Challenge – What You’ll Get Inside

On top of being part of a supportive community of language learners, you’ll get the following inside the Add1Challenge:

  • Mini-challenges and assignments designed to get you breakthrough results and to help you get through any slumps that you may face in taking on a 90 day project.
  • 90 days of personal email support from Shannon Kennedy and the Fi3M team. If at any point you need encouragement, resource recommendations, feel stuck or uncertain about any part of the challenge, we’re here for you. We want you to succeed and so we’re more than happy to answer any questions you may have or just provide a bit of support when the going gets tough.
  • Accountability emails and challenge updates sent direct to your inbox. Throughout the challenge we’ll send you emails about what’s going on, what your assignments are and tips for staying on track.
  • A private, secure and friendly place to share videos of yourself speaking your new language. The Add1Challenge does mean stepping out of your comfort zone. During the challenge you’ll be sharing Day 0, 30, 60 and 90 videos (created by you) to record your progress and motivate your fellow challengers. This hard evidence of just how far your efforts are taking you is a big motivator. That’s why we encourage all challengers to document their progress towards that fifteen minute conversation by creating these videos. Plus you’ll get encouraging feedback from other challengers.
  • Membership of a mastermind group and a language study group. The Add1Challenge is all about community. This is why we offer both masterminds (groups that compare notes and accountability) and study groups (fellow challengers studying the same language as you). They’re a great place to compare notes, get some practice and get support. We keep these groups small so you have a chance to really connect with other language learners.
  • Lifetime access to our private Facebook group and community site. As a part of the Add1Challenge, you’re becoming a member of an established community of learners that love sharing and supporting their peers. Through our community platform and Facebook group, you’ll get access to the conversations, successes and advice shared by our members.
  • In-depth language resources developed by the Add1 community. With almost 30 challenges under our belts, we have quite a few resources that we’ve put together, assembled with the experience and knowledge gained from past challenges, as well as things our community members found useful. These include tutor recommendations, our favorite learning tools, and tens of thousands of sentences written in different languages.
  • Discounted access to future challenges. We’ve found that once someone has completed one Add1Challenge, they want to return for more! So we’ve put a discount scheme in place for Add1 alumni to make it more affordable for repeat challengers.
  • Prizes! - $250 iTalki credit + 1 free Add1Challenge credit for the winner of the Add1Challenge. At the end of each Add1Challenge, one winner is selected. This is someone who completes all of the requirements and challenges that make up the Add1Challenge. They’re selected by their fellow challengers through a voting process that concludes with a grand finale live Hangout.
