The Power of Immersion
Learning a language takes time. Unfortunately, going to a class for a few hours a week is simply not enough language practice for a person’s brain to kick into high-gear and fully grasp a language. But if you do the things in your daily life, like watching TV, listening to the radio, and talking with co-workers and family members—in the language you are learning—the quicker you will learn. This is called immersion and studies show that it is the most effective way to learn.
One of the reasons immersion works is because you learn the language in real situations that are fun and interesting to you. At first, switching your daily routine into a new language is really tough, but the more you do it, your mind jumps into survival mode and quickly begins to recognize patterns and build a base of understanding. From there, learning accelerates until you hit a tipping point, and then things get much easier. Watch our video about immersion.

The Tipping Point
There is a tipping point for learning any language–a point when learning the language gets much easier. The English tipping point is when you achieve enough proficiency that your English conversations and reading are actually enjoyable instead of a struggle. Once you’ve reached this point, it gets easier and easier to spend more and more hours a day learning the language. This means you’ll start learning faster.
If you try to only learn English by attending class, reaching the tipping point can take 1-2 years. However, if you immerse yourself, practicing English more than 4 hours every day, then you can reach the tipping point in as little as 3 months. Taking a class can be a part of this immersion, but you can also learn simply through immersion.
The proven way to get to the English Tipping Point is to immerse yourself in English for at least 4 hours every day. Revolution English was built to make immersion as easy and enjoyable as possible.
