What’s the best way to learn a language?

Learning a new language should be a fun challenge — not a painful chore.

Stop struggling to learn a new language

Most learners waste time with strategies that aren't right for them, and as a result, never feel truly confident using the language.

The whole thing can make you feel like you're just "not good at languages".

Start communicating sooner

I know what it’s like to feel stuck in a language — to study for what feels like forever, and still be unable to communicate well.

But through 15+ years of learning, speaking and using foreign languages (including Spanish, French, Portuguese and German), I've realized a few key things you need to make progress quickly:

  • Focus
  • Consistency
  • Interest

That’s why, when we work together, I help you stay focused, be consistent, and learn in a way that's fun and interesting to you.

“Connor helped me create a motivating vision and a solid learning routine within a few weeks. We tested out a bunch of language learning methods until I found the ones that felt right for me, were fun, and didn't feel like “studying”. Then, he turned those into a custom language learning plan for me to use moving forward, full of proven techniques that will actually work.

After working with Connor, I'm learning more Spanish every single day. And because I enjoy the process, I'm actually sticking to it.
