Q: Does LingualMuse Offer In-Person Lessons? 💻
A: All LingualMuse lessons are conducted online. This increases lesson consistency and keeps student costs down at the same time. Online instruction offers you the ultimate flexibility, since you can take your lessons with you wherever you go! You can take classes during your lunch breaks or while on vacation, and you'll never miss a lesson due to travel challenges or bad weather. The flexibility of online instruction is tremendous; you just need access to the internet.
Q: How Long Will It Take Me To Learn A New Language? ⌛
A: Learning speed varies from student to student and depends on many factors, including frequency of lessons, practice between sessions, and even the language you chose to learn. Our goal at LingualMuse is to optimize your learning potential by determining your best learning methods and tailoring your lesson strategy to achieve the best results.
Q: How do I schedule classes? 🗓️
A: The LingualMuse Student Companion app is the recommended (and easiest) way to schedule and manage your classes!
Q: How Much Homework Is Involved? 📚
A: The quantity of homework is up to you to discuss with your teacher. Let them know your language goals and how much time you can set aside for homework and practice. We also have different types of homework which we can match to your lifestyle.
Q: Will I be tested? ✏️
A: Similar to homework, testing is up to you. Your teacher will track your progress and recognize your level achievements at various intervals throughout your language learning journey. Testing can certainly be an important part of that journey, but it is optional. Sometimes our students are learning with us in order to pass a very specific test as part of obtaining citizenship, advanced placement in high school, job requirements, etc. In these cases, we recommend testing for status as well as preparation and experience.
Q: Can you help me prepare for an upcoming language exam?
A: Yes! If you're preparing for an exam like the IELTS, TOEFL, or the Goethe-Institut's German certificate exams, our Language Coaches empower students to confidently navigate language coursework and achieve success. Your LingualMuse Language Coach will work with you to enhance your listening, reading, writing, and speaking abilities, and provide insights into overall exam strategies. Through targeted exercises and interactive sessions, you'll build the confidence and skills necessary to excel in every aspect of the exam.
Q: Do I Have To Take Class At The Same Time/day Each Week? 🗓️
A: Not unless you want to! We offer an online calendar where students can schedule classes at a convenient time for them. We understand that for some people this varies from week to week. Consistency is a very important part of the learning process so we encourage students to schedule recurring lessons when possible, which also guarantees their favorite day and time.
Q: Can I Take A Class With A Friend Or Family Member? 🧑👨
A: Yes! In fact, having a practice partner will accelerate your learning! Registering for our 90-minute Introductory Program for PARTNERS and you each save 25% off our Introductory Program!
Q: Can I Take More Than One Language At The Same Time? 🤹
A: You absolutely can, and we have students who have done and are doing that! Depending on your situation, this can be with the same teacher or we can match you with multiple teachers.
Q: Can I switch teachers? 🧑🏫
A: The short answer is YES. The long answer is: LingualMuse understands that your learning success will often coincide with having good overall synergy with your teacher. This is why we place a high value on our ability to match you with your best teacher, factoring your schedule, language goals, personality, and other important preferences. We start all of our students with our Introductory Program, which includes a pre-class meeting with an Enrollment Specialist to learn about your needs. We then assign your instructor and schedule your first intro lesson. In addition to your teacher assessing your language level and learning style, this time serves as a “Meet & Greet” to get to know your teacher. If for any reason you are not 100% satisfied, we’ll schedule a “do-over” with another LingualMuse teacher who will be excited to meet you!
Q: Can I work with more than one teacher? 👨🏫👩🏫
A: YES. Most of our students learn with one person but there are various circumstances where it is beneficial to have a second instructor involved. We will bring it to your attention if this is something we would recommend. Students can always contact us to inquire about this or for anything about their language learning experience.
