The answer depends on several factors, including: your goals, experience, language-skill, native language, and the amount of practice and exposure you have, among other factors. However, on average, you can become conversationally fluent in a brand new language within 1-2 years. You can achieve specific language goals (like, being able to order in a restaurant, or being able to direct phone calls) in as little as 6-12 weeks.
Because we tailor our services to each client, each course is different. However, our rates are competitive, and because you are getting a curriculum designed just for you, instead of purchasing a pre-packaged program, you are not paying for anything you do not need. Many discounts are available, and your employer may be able to help pay for your courses. Contact us today for a quote.

Can I really change my accent? I know people who have been here decades and they still have an accent.

We are flexible and accommodating to your busy schedule. We can meet in early mornings, on your lunch break, evenings, different days of the week or different times of the day.
Each Confidence Learning Services course includes practice materials and subscriptions that you will need to practice throughout the week. The program includes an hour a day of practice material that you complete on your own.
