a businessperson working with people abroad, an adolescent looking for personal enrichment, or even a child eager for fun, Natively is an appropriate language-training

one lesson per sitting, which could vary from thirty minutes to two hours, depending on the specific lesson, on the level attained, and on the number of exercises
