There is a strong belief that the longer a lesson lasts, the more we learn. However, it has been scientifically proven that after 45’ our concentration levels start to decrease.


When my students ask me what the quickest way to learn a language is, I answer that the way to go is by taking an intensive course (2 or 3 hours a day) over a short period of time, if one has the possibility to do so. However, this is hardly the case.


So, if you fall into the category of people who do not have enough time to invest in an intensive language course (2-3 hours a day), I strongly recommend learning a language 45’ a day.


After coming back from China to live back in Europe two years ago, I wanted to continue with my daily Mandarin lessons, but being a busy entrepreneur meant I had no time for my 2 hour daily classes.


Being a firm believer of LESS IS MORE all my life and convinced that I didn’t want my Chinese to go to waste, I decided to give the 45’ lessons a go and the results were fantastic! Not only was I able to maintain my level but also improve it vastly.


So, why should YOU take 45’ lessons a day?




  1. Anybody can fit 45’ into their agenda.


  1. We learn best in short and consistent bursts, which in turn keeps our motivation levels up.


  1. Short bursts are more manageable, less room for boredom in the class!


  1. Learning in short intervals prevent burnout


  1. Learning every day establishes routine and ensures your daily input of the language when the environment does not provide it for you.



After seeing how much I had advanced in my Chinese with these 45’ sessions, I decided to offer them in my language school and the results have been extremely positive in every single one of my students.


So, if all of my students have seen a vast improvement in their command of the language they are learning, why shouldn’t you?
