As an international agent you are going to visit new places and foreign lands. It will be challenging. A good agent needs to be confident about his/her language skills to ensure never to reveal their identity! Therefore you will need to be able to speak foreign languages as fluently as possible.

The language challenges mostly relate to authentic, everyday communication tasks that agents need to be prepared for.

Research has shown that some learners hesitate to take risks and do not always take opportunities to practise a language they are learning outside the language classroom.

Real-life communication in a foreign language is not stress-free, especially when you are on a mission. It may involve making mistakes, being misunderstood, misunderstanding others, taking on a different identity, changing the way you use language.

This app will prepare you for these situations.
