How long will it take to reach my goals?



The time it takes to reach your goals depends on a number of factors:

  • How closely related the target language is to your first language or other languages you know
  • The areas of complexity in the language
  • How many hours a week you devote exclusively to language learning
  • The number and quality of language learning resources available
  • The motivation you have
