The Lessons are very well structured and you can reach a very high level of the Language since the lessons cover the whole wide spectrum of learning a language: grammar, listening, vocabulary and all the rest. There are 4 pricing tiers: 1 month ($99), 3 months ($209), 6 months ($359) and 12 months ($599). I have to say, the 12-month tier is actually incredibly good value (an entire year of unlimited language lessons with a teacher).
