We’ve seen people achieve all of these dreams and more with Add1.
Not tomorrow. Not next year. Right now. Add1 is about learning a new language right now through speaking -- which is the most effective way to learn if you want to use your new language to connect with people.
Time and again students tell us “I always wanted to learn a new language, and I tried a million different techniques, but it only actually happened when I joined Add1.”
We created the Add1 to fix the two biggest problems language learners face, and give you a complete mindset shift. I’ll explain how we do that in a moment.
First, remember this: After just 90 days in Add1 you’ll have a 15 minute conversation with a native speaker in your new language.
I guarantee it, or I’ll give you your money back.
Want to know why Add1 is so powerful? It’s actually pretty simple.
In Add1 I’ve seen 1,000’s of language learners become comfortable speaking a new language -- in real conversations with new friends they’ve made from around the world.
How is it that a reasonably priced, 90 day language program achieves something that many expensive university language courses (costing thousands of dollars, and taking years to complete) fail to do?
Here’s what we’ve discovered. There’s a huge myth about language learning. Many, many language learners believe it -- and it makes me so angry that they’ve been sold this tall tale! The sad truth is this harmful belief holds back language learners and keeps them stuck at the stage of false beginner.
So what is the myth?
For the first few days (or maybe weeks) you’re excited about your new language. It’s thrilling! You’re learning new things. You get the buzz of “I can do this”.
Then it starts to get overwhelming. The more you learn, the more you see how far you’ve got to go. You start to feel you’ll never get to the stage where you can do what you want to do: use your new language skills in real conversations.
So you end up skipping a day. Then a couple days pass. After a week or so you tell yourself “I’m just not that good at languages”.
You’ve bought the myth. You’ve told yourself: “Some people are naturally gifted at languages. And I’m not one of them.”
Most language courses ignore this myth.
Instead, they focus on vocabulary, or grammar, or listening skills, or reading and writing. Don’t get me wrong. These are all important skills -- and you will have to tackle them as a language learner. But they’re not the real obstacle to learning a language.
The biggest roadblock? The myth that you’re not good at languages. This belief makes so many language learners just give up. And when you quit, you make that belief stronger.
So that you can step out of this vicious cycle, let me tell you something about you that’s 100% true.
What I’m about to share proves that you’re good at learning languages. You’ll want to remember this.
Here it is: You already speak at least one language to fluency. As you’re reading this, it’s most likely English. You’ve got no issues with learning languages.
This is your new mantra. You might even want to write it down. “I am perfectly capable and ready to learn a new language.”
The “Secret” of Why Add1 Works
There are so many language courses out there. More than ever. So why the need for Add1?
Here’s why: Most language courses ignore the problems that Add1 tackles. And these are the core problems that hold language learners back.
Let me state this clearly. The problem is not lack of resources. And it’s not your ability to learn languages. You’re already a language ace!
The roadblock to fluency is something else. And that’s why we created Add1.
The key to learning a language involves two core skills:
Speaking with native speakers as much as you can. Even when you’re a complete beginner. That means you’re practising the skill you want to learn. It’s also incredibly rewarding.
Sticking with it. This is the biggest challenge. Some people can just stick-with-it come what may, which is why they appear gifted at languages. But what you’re seeing is not actually a gift for languages. They’ve just learned to keep at it no matter what. Most of us need help with this.
With Add1 you’ll find:
Confidence to speak a new language -- and have comfortable conversations with native speakers. Add1 shows you how to unlock your love of languages and find the confidence to finally connect.
Grit to work through false starts, leap over hurdles of self doubt and get it done. You really can succeed in languages and become consistent -- no matter what your past history tells you..
In fact, you’ll build your confidence and experience so much after just 90 days with Add1 that you’ll be shouting from the rooftops about your 15 minute conversation at the end of it. And we’ll be celebrating right along with you.
It’s no surprise that many students come back to Add1 to learn a third, fourth and fifth language. Add1 is invigorating. It works. And learning languages can be addictive.
Find time to learn a language, even when they’ve thought they had no time
Develop the confidence to have comfortable conversations in another language
Travel the world with their new language skills, explore other cultures, and even find a job overseas
Make new friends from all around the world who love languages and learning
Change their lives by opening up the possibility to reach other lifelong goals
You need to use the language in as many ways as you can and doing that as a part of this focused community will give you staying power.
We don’t tell you what to learn -- that’s the failed approach to language learning.
We show you how to learn a language. This is one of the most powerful skills you can master.
Could you do it on your own?
Yes – you could do it alone – and you’d need a cast iron will, and many years of trial and error (lots of Add1 students have tried and failed for years to learn a language before joining us).
If you’ve dreamed of learning a language but never actually got your plan off the ground, Add1 will launch you into the sky and show you how to soar.
Inside Add1, you'll find yourself part of a team of top-level language learners, cheering one another on, going heart-to-heart on wins and setbacks, and sharing personal hacks for language learning, and providing a touch of friendly competition.
With Add1, you’ll gain
"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 Add1 and signed up. [At the beginning of Add1] I could fit probably everything I knew about Italian into less than 30 seconds. And at the end of the 90 days, I made a video 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.

"One of the best methods to learn a second language"
“I was terrified when I first began because I didn’t want to be embarrassed. We all have the kind of feeling where we think people are going to laugh or think we’re ridiculous. But [it was the] complete opposite, all the people that I met were thrilled to be helping you with their language. I 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 fantastic.”
- Eamon Gilligan
"I wanted to talk to people in a different language, and that's definitely what this challenge will get you to do. Even as life gets in the way, the community will be there to support you!"
- Brandon Santos
"Motivates you to keep trying"
"With Add1 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. Add1 really motivates you to keep trying! You'll get there, you will achieve your goal!"
- Tanise Carvalho
