Lucas Bighetti and Jan van der Aa
Hi, we are Jan van der Aa and Lucas Bighetti!
We’re the founders of LanguageBoost, a website where we help people worldwide to learn foreign languages quickly. We are language consultants, coaches and creators the VocaBooster language courses.
Of course, we also learn languages ourselves!
A few years ago Jan wanted to learn Thai and to be honest, he struggled…
After several months of almost daily study he failed miserably to hold a simple conversation with a native speaker. This caused him to lose motivation and give up.
Having studied over 10 languages each in the past decade, we have found that in order to get momentum and to become conversational quickly in another language, learning the most important vocabulary first is crucial.
But Jan had a problem when he wanted to learn Thai the first time…
Unfortunately, there were not many resources available for beginners that focus on the right vocabulary and phrases.
And that’s why we created VocaBooster Thai!
A few years later Jan went back to Thailand for another attempt to become conversational in Thai using VocaBooster… in just 21 days.

Frequently Asked Questions

I’m not a complete beginner. Is this course still relevant for me?
Let’s be honest, we only recommend this course for beginners. If you can already hold simple conversations in Italian, this course is probably too easy for you.
What’s the duration of the course?
The course is structured over 21 lessons. Each lesson consists of the video lesson, the learning materials and native audio of the new words and phrases that you learn. The time it will take you to complete the course will depend on the time you have available, and the pace at which you like to study. If you decide to study two lessons per week for example, it will take you 2-3 months to finish the course.
Can I study at my own pace?
Yes. The course is designed specifically to allow all students to study at their own individual pace. Learn as quickly or slowly as you want; we want you to learn – not run a marathon. Everything is downloadable for practice and future refresher sessions if needed. The materials never expire … and updates are always free.
What’s the difference between this course and the VocaBooster Italian?
In VocaBooster Italian we focus on teaching you the most important vocabulary. We don’t focus much on grammar and very little on building sentences. For someone who has learned languages successfully in the past, or for someone who already speaks a similar language, this is often enough. The Boostcamp is a complete program that is easy to everyone to follow. It doesn’t matter if you have previous language learning experience or not. Boostcamp is a more complete version of VocaBooster as it also includes video lessons and we spend much more time on constructing sentences and conversation skills.
How is this course different from the many other Italian courses out there?
Our Boostcamps are unique. This is the only video course that teaches you Italian (or an other language) from scratch with building blocks. We break grammar down into easily digestible building blocks. So instead of teaching you boring grammar rules, we give a verb form and then demonstrate how to plug that verb form into a sentence pattern. Also, this course is proven to work for people from different ages and different backgrounds. That’s why we’ve included real students in the video lessons, not actors!
Will I still need an Italian teacher?
To become fluent in Italian (or any language) you need to practice speaking the language often. And practice is best achieved through real life and online experiences and/or with native speaking friends, family, or tutors. Boostcamp gives you all the tools, structures, materials, and motivation you need but you will still need to find opportunities to practice speaking Italian.
