And here is how and why:
- You understand why you failed before
- Learn how to succeed after all
- What is keeping your motivation high so you will be steady
1. Why you failed learning a Language
The traditional school system teaches you a second language in a specific way.
It is theory-heavy and full of many really boring and dry methods. Besides dry and boring they are unnatural and most importantly, barely effective. Not the best circumstance to master a language.
After school, an intermediate person is able to read and write the basics in this new language. Having fluent conversations is a totally different story. People that only had one resource, the mandatory school, struggle in understanding and speaking, especially with native speakers.
After many different attempts to get fluent in a second language, I occupied myself heavily in language learning. And picked out the essential things to fill that gap that the school lets open. THE most important thing is learning a second language as effortless and effective as you did as a child.
2. Learn how to succeed after all
The result is a platform that combines speaking and understanding with native speakers. This approach is called a language exchange.
There are websites/apps on the market that serves that purpose. Those are great, but lacks some small, but still severe features.
First is, that absolute beginner can’t take full advantage out of it. A beginner gets demoralized due to the lack of conversation ability. That means they require additional resources to build up those skills first.
3. Motivation boost
Next point is that those apps barely consider connecting like-minded persons. And we all agree that a conversation with somebody that shares mutual interests is way more effective than speaking to a random person with whom we have nothing in common.
Speaking with like-minded people about topics we are interested in, switches the focus from “learning a language” to “having interesting conversations”. That means that the learning process is totally effortless and gifted as a side product.
Motivation problems can’t appear because you don’t focus on learning, you are having interesting conversations with cool people!
The third point is that daily calls might not be possible due to the timezone that differs under certain circumstances 4, 5, 6 hours, or even more!

In a nutshell:
Improving speaking and understanding skills. That was the main factor while designing the LEWINS system. Wrapped with the natural approach that shows no love for boring theory or unnecessary, not real-life-conform stuff. Learning from native speakers that share the same interests with the goal of accomplishing being fluent! Fast, effortless, and as a team!
