Your Little Wins
Happy New Year! Welcome to Little Wins - a place where we acknowledge the stepping stones towards success. We think resolutions should be about setting small, manageable goals. There’s no point going too big, too soon.
Instead, let’s celebrate the smaller achievements – ordering a drink in another language or watching a television show without subtitles are both super important stepping stones on the journey to learning a language.
So, get the champagne at the ready and pop a cork every time you achieve a Little Win! It might be expensive, but you deserve it.
Show off your success
busuu and McGraw-Hill Education partnered to bring you the official language certificate in English, French, Spanish and German.
These certificates are proof of all your little wins along the journey to fluency… and they can also be used to show off on your LinkedIn profile.
Go on, we know you want to!

Four simple tasks
Everyone has different strengths and weaknesses in their language learning journey, and we recommend that you train all of them in bite sized pieces. #LittleWins are completely relative to you and what stage you’re at: whether it’s ordering a drink in another language, or watching a film.
It might sound simple, but we have a few really easy steps to help you learn. Making a resolution means creating a new habit; one that isn’t too hard to stick to. We recommend:
1. Practice: complete one of our bite-sized lessons each day.
Send a writing exercise to our native-speaker community for instant corrections.
All our dialogues are recorded by real native speakers; you can even slow them down on the app.
Start simple: talk to yourself in the mirror, then make friends in our community and speak to them!
10 minutes a day makes all the difference
Do you want to know the best part? You only need 10 minutes a day to improve your language learning skills! You’ll be amazed how quickly you can improve your reading, writing, listening and speaking in that time – which means you're one step closer every day to achieving your language goals. Score!
busuu‘s bite-sized learning units are designed to take around 10 minutes each. You can focus on the skills you want to practice each day, and easily fit your language learning into your busy schedule.It might seem like a short amount of time, but 10 minutes a day can change your whole outlook on life.
What else can you do in 10 minutes?
You could cook a 10 minute breakfast that Nigella would be proud of.
Get a quick craft fix and create something special.
Or even do some 10 minute yoga!
