Frequently Asked Questions
When can I expect to receive my reward?
Within 2-4 weeks. We are a very small team, and all of us teach at various times throughout the day.
Why should I donate to your school?
We offer a dozen languages, many of which are not offered in traditional schools but are in demand by employers and highly desired by students.
We know not all students want to take Spanish. Some want to learn Japanese or Mandarin, but may not be in an area where these classes are offered. We want to give students a gift that can be carried with them for the rest of their lives. What better than the gift of knowledge?
Couldn't I just pay for classes for my student? Why are you offering tuition as a reward?
However, one of our goals is to establish student scholarships for various programs we offer. We know there any many gifted students who may not have the funds to take part in our programs. We hope to change that through the support of individuals who value learning as much as we do.
I can't pay through Stripe or wish to remain anonymous with my donation. What do I do?

Can a student receive high school credit in a language through your school?
Are you a non-profit?
We had a non-profit status when we began, but we missed the deadline to file our 501(c) renewal. Again, we are a small group doing a large amount of work. We are hoping to become a non-profit again within the next 2-3 years.
How is your language program different from a program like Mango, Babbel, Duolingo, or Rosetta Stone?
We do not translate. Period.
Our teachers teach the language much like you would learn your first language. We also do speaking practice with live instructors which may include song, dance, even illustration.
Where are your classes held?
100% online. We have classes with live instructors that meet 1-5 days per week.
What are your classes like?
