Refold Coaching

Struggling with language learning?

In just 1-hour, we can help you overcome any challenge and get back on track.

You dream of fluency in a foreign language

You can imagine your life in another language, with its vibrant culture and new experiences all around you.

You see yourself speaking like a local, sharing bad jokes with new friends, connecting with long-lost family.

But when you open your eyes, reality sets in, and fluency feels like an unattainable dream.

You've tried everything

Duolingo, Babbel, Rosetta Stone, Pimsleur. They all promise fluency, but they haven’t worked for you.

At first you made some progress, learning new things every day, but months later, you don’t feel any closer to your goal.

You've stopped making progress

You’ve put so much time and effort into making your dream a reality, but you feel like you’re on an endless treadmill, never getting any closer to fluency.

You bounce between different tools and methods, looking for the “perfect app” to break through your stagnation, but you’re disappointed every time.

Nothing has worked, and your dream feels further away than ever.

Maybe you’re just not cut out for language learning

If you’ve tried everything and nothing works, the problem must be you, right?

You’ve begun to think that your dream of fluency will remain just that — a dream.

Stop!

You’re not broken and you’re not alone

Billions of people dream of reaching fluency, but few ever achieve it. The language learning industry feeds on your dreams and gives you nothing in return.

They promise you unrealistic results:
“Fluency in 1 month! 1 day! 10 minutes!”

Here's the truth

Language learning takes a LONG time
and no single app will get you to fluency.

There is no “Holy Grail”

We can’t stress this enough:

No single app, class, or resource will get you to fluency.

If you want to achieve your goals, you need to combine dozens of tools and techniques into a personalized learning plan that works for you and your life.

Then you need to ACTUALLY follow the plan!

Personalized learning solutions to meet your needs

That’s where Refold coaching comes in. We will identify exactly what you’re struggling with and match you to the specific strategies, apps, and techniques you need to help you overcome your current obstacles.

Refold has helped hundreds of language learners just like you

Here’s what some of our clients had to say about Refold coaching:

"For more than a year, I have been lost when it comes to my Japanese. This program is a game changer. If it wasn’t for Refold, I would have given up on learning Japanese. Now I’m excited to keep moving forward!"

Rick K.

"I was having a lot of trouble figuring out how to fit Korean into my specific lifestyle. After the coaching program, I know exactly where to spend my time to have the most impact and the most growth. The most surprising part of the program was just how quickly the changes had an impact. My Korean ability has improved SO much since coaching."

Gabi G.

"Before starting Refold, I was barely getting 15-20 minutes a day. Japanese felt like a chore. Now it is something I look forward to every day and I'm putting in 45-50 hours of Japanese each week."

Aron S.

"When I moved to Japan, I was hit with a reality check. I couldn’t use Japanese and retreated into an English-speaking bubble. Refold Coaching gave me the guidance and routine I needed to break through the intermediate plateau. Best of all, I’m so much more comfortable interacting with Japanese out in the wild— even Japanese train announcements!"

Miguel O.

"I have tried learning Japanese so many times in the past, but I could never stick with it. With Refold coaching, I learned how to make Japanese part of my life, even if issues come up. The old me would have given up, but this experience has made me so much more resilient with Japanese — and my life too!"

Saturn

"The structure and guidance I have gotten from this program have made it much easier to stick to my goals and stay motivated. Now that I’m not questioning my productivity, I can relax and focus on Japanese."

Alex M.

"I wasn't sure how to use content effectively to learn, and it felt easier to stick with Duolingo. After working with the Refold team, I understand enough Spanish to enjoy listening and reading, making me do more of it and keep improving."

Dan T.

"I would definitely recommend Refold coaching to people who value their time. Refold coaching has been a huge time saver for me. They helped me overcome my analysis paralysis and got a plan in place, and gave me the accountability to follow through on that plan."

Evan G.

"Before coaching, I was completely lost. I was able to sit down with my coach and figure out an exact plan that worked for my schedule. Refold helped give me the confidence to learn a new language."

Hannah W.

"It didn’t feel like I was getting anywhere. Coaching made Japanese study a lot more accessible for me. I thought it would be huge struggle to keep consistent, but once I got into the habit of it, staying consistent was really, really easy."

Nick C.

"I had been working on Japanese off and on for 18 years. I didn’t have a clear idea of the exact steps I needed to push forward. After coaching, I feel absolutely confident in my ability to achieve my Japanese goals."

Ryan B.

"Learning a new language on your own is tough. That’s why it’s so nice having support from the Refold Coaching Team. Now, instead of going through app after app, I know what to focus on, and I’m doing a lot more listening than before."

Who am I and why should you listen to me?

Because I used to be exactly where you are now.

My name is Ethan, and I'm the CEO of Refold.

I've struggled with languages my whole life. I wasted 6 years studying Japanese in school and graduated with NOTHING to show for it. I couldn't even have a basic conversation.

I've dedicated my life to fixing this problem so that you don't have to suffer the way I did.

4 years ago, I shifted my focus to Spanish and dove head first into the world of language learning.

I've researched and tested dozens of methods, apps, tools, and techniques. I've read books, enrolled in classes, and hired tutors. I even moved to South America for 6 months to study in a school for 4 hours a day, hoping that that experience would unlock the high level of fluency I was hoping to achieve.

Nothing worked.

Eventually, I partnered with Matt vs Japan, an extremely high-level Japanese speaker to create a map to fluency. Since then, I've interviewed hundreds of language learners at all levels and tested our process, 1 on 1, with dozens of clients. The results have been incredible!

If you’ve struggled with language learning like I did, I want you to know there is hope.

I’ll share everything that I’ve learned with you so you can avoid wasting tons of time, energy, and effort figuring it out for yourself.

How does a coach differ from a teacher?

keyboard_arrow_down

At Refold, we believe that to reach fluency, you HAVE to become a self-sufficient learner. There is no teacher on the planet that can walk you through every single step until you are fluent.

That's why our coaches focus on teaching you how to learn the language on your own, instead of teaching you the language directly.

Does this work for x language?

keyboard_arrow_down

Absolutely! We have an extensive library of resources built out for 35+ languages.

The workflows can be a bit different for each language, and some languages have better tools than others, but our team has successfully coached learners in Japanese, Spanish, Portuguese, Korean, Thai, Indonesian, and Vietnamese.

We’re certain we can help you no matter the language you’re learning.

I'm a beginner. Is this right for me?

keyboard_arrow_down

If you don’t want to waste ANY time and you want to make the fastest progress, then YES! Coaching is right for you.

However, if you aren’t sure yet, then we recommend trying to learn on your own first. If you’re a disciplined self-learner and you understand how to research and create a plan for yourself, there’s nothing stopping you from reaching fluency on your own.

I have a lot of experience. Is this still helpful for me?

keyboard_arrow_down

Absolutely! Everyone’s learning process can be optimized. Even if you’re a seasoned language learner, we can still help you streamline your approach.

One of our recent clients was already fluent in Japanese, but he wanted to improve even further. We helped him break through to the next level, approaching native-like fluency.

How does this differ from the Refold Roadmap?

keyboard_arrow_down

The Refold Roadmap helps guide self-learners to fluency, but each learner needs to customize the guide to fit their target language, life, goals, and interests.

Refold coaching helps you integrate the language into your life by:

  • Designing a daily learning schedule that fits into your busy life. We’ll help you find the hidden opportunities in your schedule.
  • Make language learning relaxing and fun so it doesn’t feel like work.
  • Building learning workflows customized to your preferred devices and media types.
  • Hand-selecting level-appropriate content that matches your interests. We’ll also teach you how to convert your current hobbies from being in your native language to the language you’re learning instead.
  • Holding you accountable to your goals until you are self-sufficient.

Ready to take your language learning to the next level?

For a limited time only, you can meet with the CEO of Refold and get ALL your questions about language learning answered. The coaching session costs $97, and if you’re not happy with the results, I’ll give you your money back, no questions asked.
