Learn MORE with LESS and start Speaking 
Spanish from Day #1!

What if you could get by in Spanish, with knowing only 300 words?

Have you ever tried to learn Spanish?

Maybe you tried to learn Spanish at school. Or maybe you’ve tried an app that promised you’d learn Spanish in a week without having to put in any effort.

After a few months of hard work, you finally meet a native speaker and you want to impress that person with your new language skills.

Perhaps this is for a new job, a business opportunity, or perhaps you’re even hoping to find love.

But, you don’t know what to say, so your heart starts beating fast and a lump of panic catches in your throat.

You can’t remember those words that you were meant to have learned without effort.

You lose confidence and you feel dizzy and overwhelmed.

You open your mouth to say something, but all that comes out is a mumble of ‘ums’ and ‘ers’.

What are you doing wrong?


The language course promised that you’d be conversational in days. But instead, you just end up embarrassing yourself.


All those hours of study wasted, for what?


If you’ve ever had an experience like this, don’t worry, you’re not alone.

Thousands of language learners across the globe have had similar encounters when they try practicing a language that they thought they’d learned.


It’s no wonder so many get frustrated and give up.

That's why we created a system that helps you to say more in Spanish, with less...

We know, getting started with Spanish can be difficult…



In 2007, I had my first opportunity to travel to another continent, all by myself. I was 19 years old and had just graduated from high school.  

For a few months, I worked in a factory where my father worked to save a bit of money. After a few months I was ready for an adventure and I traveled to Costa Rica, with the intention of doing volunteering work and learning Spanish for 3 months. ​


They told me that after three months of language lessons and staying with a host family, I would be fluent


The result…

After three months I could barely hold a conversation with the local people. I had learned some words and phrases and I could conjugate a few verbs, but I could not speak! 

To make it even worse, I was one of the worst students of my class.  

I felt embarrassed

Maybe my English teacher at high school was correct when he told me I’d be better off not choosing a career where I’d have to speak English or any language other than my native tongue.




The girl that changed 




About two years after my adventure in Costa Rica, I got the opportunity to go on an exchange program in China. The goal was to learn some Chinese in five months.

For some reason I’ve always been deeply interested in other countries and cultures. When I heard about the exchange program in China I was all in!

China was like another world to me. Different food, different people with different habits and a completely new language. .

After a few weeks I got to know a nice local girl and she became my girlfriend.

Only one problem, she didn’t speak a word of English…

So, I had to learn Chinese and I had to learn it fast.

At first, I wasn’t sure I had the confidence to learn Chinese quickly, if at all. But my girlfriend changed all that and forced me into the situation where I had to learn the language.

In the end, by the time I left China, my Chinese was pretty good.

I remember that night at 1 a.m. when I walked back from her place to my dormitory through drenching rains. After 1 year in an exchange programme, I had to say goodbye to her and I thought I’d never see her again. 

At the time it broke my heart, but it later started to change my perspective on things.

I’d learned to speak a new language in only five months, after being told when I was younger that I was terrible at languages. But I’d learned enough Chinese to find love.

So, for the first time in my life, I started believing that I could become successful at learning languages.

This changed my ability to learn foreign languages and eventually, my whole life.

And it was all because I picked up one basic principle that made it a lot easier for me to learn Chinese, and later also other languages like Spanish.


It wasn’t just because I was living in another country.

And it wasn’t just because I fell in love with a native speaker, although that did help.


Let me show you step-by-step how you can hold conversations in Spanish from the very beginning, even if you’re bad at grammar and memorizing words.

Whatever your goal, you’ll be able to do this with enough confidence that you’ll eventually forget you’re talking in Spanish.

Say More with Less...




Okay, so, I promised to tell you my big secret...

Well, if you’re familiar with our method you know that learning first things first is the key to quick progress in the beginning.

The Pareto principle (also known as the 80–20 rule) states that you get 80% of the results from 20% of the work. This principle can be applicable in language learning as well.

In language learning the ratio is more like 95-2.5, which means that native speakers only use 2.5% of the words, 95% of the time.

We call it the ''Magical 2,5%''


You see, languages contain hundreds of thousands of words but only a fraction of them are used daily by native speakers, and you only need a fraction of these words for your first conversations.

Besides that, your first conversations in a new language will always be the same.


You’ll be asked questions like;

- What’s your name?
- Where are you from?
- What do you do here?
- Do you live here?
- For how long have you been studying....?


Just learning a few answers to these questions by heart is not enough. You want to be able to construct your own sentences and speak naturally, right?

To create your first sentences you need important pronouns like: I and you; verbs like, can, do, want, be, have and a few nouns to get started.

But, just learning these important words isn’t quite enough…

At school or in traditional language courses you learn lots of words. Yet, most people can’t hold conversations in their target language after they finish their course.


Because to speak a language fluently you need to become good at two things:

1. You need to know a lot about the language. That means that you need to know many words and you need to know how the grammar works.


2. But what’s even more important, and what most people forget is that you need to know how to use these words and grammar rules in real, natural conversations.

So it’s not so much about “how much you know”, but about how well you can use what you’ve learned.

Which will help you communicate effectively with those around you and genuinely express who you are.

You see, learning a language is not just about learning a bunch of words. Your fluency is going to depend on how well and quickly you can put the words and grammar you know together.

At school we learn a lot of words and grammar. The problem is that we don’t spend enough time practicing what we have learned.

We don’t spend enough time constructing sentences that are personal to us.

Just learning is not enough, you need to activate what you learn inside your brain.


By using what you’ve learned you aren’t just less likely to forget new words, you also train your brain to quickly produce sentences in your new language. 

And that's how you will be able to speak Spanish right away...

The Ideal Spanish Course for Complete Beginners



But where can you find a language course that not only teaches you the most important vocabulary, but also trains you in making your own personalized sentences, so that you can eventually hold conversations with native speakers?

We tested all major language learning courses but we couldn’t find anything which came close. We wanted to create something better than any other course on the market.

My friend Lucas and I spent years of our life trying to figure out what the most important words for beginners are and how to teach them in an effective way.

We wanted to create the ideal course for those who want to learn a new language from scratch. A course that focused on real results.


After more than a decade of trial and error and having learned more than 10 language ourselves, Lucas and I came to the conclusion that if we wanted a program that teaches you how to speak from the beginning, we …


- Should teach the minimum amount of words that you can use to make the maximum amount of combinations.


- Should focus on the most important vocabulary that you’ll need for your first conversations


No boring grammar rules, learn grammar naturally ‘’on the go’’


- The materials should come with native speaker audio and video learning tools


- The focus should be on the student; our priority is to let the student construct their own sentences!


- The program should be super user-friendly.


…and it should enable students to hold a 10-minute conversation in their new language by the end of the course.


It wasn’t easy, but after years of testing, experimenting and seeing our students getting results we finally launched the ultimate beginner’s course.

And we’ve called it:



Yes, Jumpstart Spanish!

Our Jumpstart courses are unique language courses that help you to speak a new language right from the start, even if your vocabulary is limited.

In each 21-module Jumpstart course, you’ll learn the minimal amount of words and grammar structures that you need to make an impact in your target language.

By the end of the course, you’ll be able to hold a 10-minute conversation with your Spanish speaking friends.

This program works for all ages – from young students to 70+ year old retirees.


Even 55+ year old Russians were speaking a foreign language after the 21 modules!

See it for yourself!


But WAIT, who are you guys?

Who exactly are you guys and what do you know about learning Spanish?

Well, Lucas and I have dedicated the last ten years of our lives to learning foreign languages and we’ve tested all the major courses and methods.

Not only have we learned many foreign languages for fun, we’ve also lived in many different countries where we had to speak multiple languages on a daily basis. We designed this course for people who want to speak a foreign language in the real world, not just to pass an exam.

This language learning journey has brought Jan to over 100 countries and I’ve learned over 10 languages. Lucas speaks even more languages than Jan.

Over the years we’ve also interviewed many of the world's most accomplished language learners. We’ve learned what works and implemented it in our own methodology.

We also regularly speak at language events all over the world. We don’t just give these talks in English. Below you can see Lucas giving a presentation in Russian, in various cities in Russia, and even in Kyrgyzstan.


Helping people from all over the world to learn foreign languages is what makes us feel alive.

I’ve known Jan and Lucas for a few years and I’ve always found their language learning ideas and tips extremely useful. I was so impressed by Lucas’ story that I even mentioned him in my TED talk as a very inspiring polyglot. The talk has been watched by over 4.5 million people. 

We’ve had dozens of hours of conversation about language learning, so I know that these guys know their stuff about language learning, especially when someone is just starting. 


Highly recommended!

I have tested most language applications, books and courses out there and I can honestly say that language boost uses one of the best methods. It gets you from A-B very quickly and cuts out a lot of the useless rubbish a traditional language school might teach you. 

If you are a real stickler for detail and grammar etc. it could be a bit light, but if you are just looking to pick up and start using the language quickly, I can highly recommend these guys!

Jan and Lucas have more experience learning foreign languages than almost anyone on the planet. 

If you want to learn to speak a new language and learn quickly, I recommend you pay attention to what these guys have to say!

I dont know why anyone that is interested in learning Spanish would not take advantage of this opportunity.


The price right, the process is right, and the customer service and support is exemplary.

Michael Burns


I’m already recommending this course to everyone I know.

It’s such a different way of learning Spanish than the way you learn languages at school.  

You get to speak Spanish right from the beginning instead of learning separate words that you can’t really use. 

Jessie de Zwart

I would say that this is probably the best way to start learning a foreign language. I know what I mean here because I have a degree in linguistics and education and I have been working with languages professionally for eighteen years.


This course gives you an unbelievable feeling of achievement and helps you to create a natural connection with the language.

Mila Khabirova


I have researched and tried at least a dozen different language learning tools, software and approaches.


This Jumpstart thing is the only approach that I found that had me speaking, conversing, and understanding what I said on day one!

What makes Jumpstart so Special?


Good question!


There are a lot of elements that make this program unique…


1. Jumpstart Spanish is the only resource that makes use

of the More-with-Less Method

With the More-with-Less Method you’ll achieve the maximum amount of speech with the minimum number of words. In fact, we won't teach you more than 300 words in this course.


But how will you be able to speak Spanish with only 300 words? 

When we created this method we made sure that we handpicked only the most important words that you need for your daily conversations. 

Because of the relevance of the words that we have picked and over 3000 drill exercises in this course, you will be able to make over 150,000 Spanish sentences after finishing this course. 



2.This course contains over 180 short, easy-to-follow video lessons with over 40 hours of video content!


Jumpstart Spanish is, without a doubt, one of the most complete Spanish courses for beginners on the market.


3. The first lessons are super easy but as the course continues, the lessons gradually become more involved and challenging.


This way you gather confidence and momentum but aren’t overwhelmed. 



4. We focus 100% on your ability to speak.


Every time when we teach a new word we ask our students (and you) to translate simple sentences using the new word.


5. Learn with building blocks.


We break grammar down into easily digestible building blocks. So instead of teaching you boring grammar rules (just like when you were in school), we give a verb form and then demonstrate how to plug that verb form into a sentence pattern.

This allows you to learn grammar in a natural way without having to study (and be confused by) grammar rules. 

6. Join the classroom!


With the recording of the actual lessons you’ll feel like you’re really in the classroom. This makes the video lessons more real, fun and seeing others make progress gives you extra motivation!

7. Learn at your own speed


Pause the videos whenever you want and play them as often as you want.

8. This course is proven to work!


You can literally witness our students in the recordings (and yourself) making fast progress!

Frequently asked questions

Isn’t Jumpstart too expensive?

Although Jumpstart is certainly not one of the most expensive courses, there are indeed cheaper Spanish courses on the market.


The question is, do the cheaper courses deliver similar results?
Do these cheaper course really enable you to ‘’speak’’ Spanish?

Jumpstart helps complete beginners to reach an A2 level. That means that after finishing the course you should be able to take part in a routine conversation on simple predictable topics.

With traditional education it takes 180-200 hours to reach a similar level. Many of these courses cost thousands of dollars. Because of the highly effective ‘’More-with-Less’’ approach we use in Jumpstart, you’ll get similar results in much, much less time (40-60 study hours)

...and all that for only a fraction of the price.

Doesn’t that sound like a good deal?


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 conversations in Spanish, this course is probably too easy for you.


What’s the duration of the course?


The course is structured over 21 modules. Each module consists of about 10 video lessons, 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 modules 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 Spanish?


In VocaBooster Spanish we focus on teaching you the most important vocabulary. We don’t focus much on grammar and very little on building sentences. 

Jumpstart is a complete program that is easy to everyone to follow. It doesn’t matter if you have previous language learning experience or not. In Jumpstart, we spend much more time on constructing sentences and conversation skills.


How is this course different from the many other Spanish courses out there?

Jumpstart is unique. This is the only video course that teaches you Spanish (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 a Spanish teacher?

To become fluent in Spanish (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. Jumpstart gives you all the tools, structures, materials, and motivation you need but you will still need to find opportunities to practice speaking Spanish with a real person.

Can I get my money back if I don’t find VocaBooster useful?

Yes. If you don’t find this tool useful, just let us know within 30 days and we will give you a refund. No questions asked.
