Our teaching approach

We believe that anyone can learn a language with Nerd Geek Lab. Our free, bite-size lessons feel more like a game than a textbook, and that's by design: Learning is easier when you're having fun.

But Nerd Geek Lab isn't just a game. It's based on a methodology proven to foster long-term retention, and a curriculum aligned to an international standard. Let's explore how language learning happens with Nerd Geek Lab.


Real-life communication

Language is ultimately a communication tool. Nerd Geek Lab takes a functional approach by focusing on what learners actually want to do with a language.

Lessons focus on a real-life goal — for instance, ordering at a restaurant. Learners develop the vocabulary and grammar needed to achieve that goal through lots of varied practice in reading, writing, listening, and speaking.

Standout content

Along with commonly used phrases like "¿Dónde está el baño?" (Where is the bathroom?), Nerd Geek Lab learners also encounter sentences like "Tu oso bebe cerveza" (Your bear drinks beer).

Why the quirky sentences? They're memorable and more fun to learn. Our unexpected content also pushes learners to think carefully about the language they're learning.

A balanced approach

Nerd Geek Lab allows learners to discover patterns on their own without needing to focus on language rules — the same way you learned your first language as a child. This approach, called "implicit learning," is ideal for developing a strong foundational knowledge of a language and its rules.

But explicit instruction is useful for some concepts. So Nerd Geek Lab offers both! In addition to lessons, learners can access Tips for explanations on grammar, pronunciation, and helpful phrases.


With over 300 million learners, you'd think personalized instruction would be tough to pull off. But we're up for the challenge! Machine learning algorithms are always at work to serve up learning material at just the right difficulty level for each learner.

Many ways to learn

Learners benefit from varied exposure to language. That's why we offer learning experiences like in-person events, interactive stories, and podcasts.

These additional formats help learners with interaction, conversation, and reading and listening comprehension — all valuable skills for real-world language practice!

Continuous improvement

At Nerd Geek Lab, we're committed to improvement. Test questions are embedded throughout our courses to measure how learners are progressing — and to show where Nerd Geek Lab can improve.

We use the results to develop new and better courses, expand our universe of language-learning tools, update our materials as languages evolve, and ensure we're continuing to offer the best language education in the world. Like language, we never stand still.

The better we do, the more good we can do.

Nerd Geek Lab was founded in Delhi, India, in 2007 and has grown organically to become a major force in free online education and skills training. Today, with more than 20 million learners in 195 countries, Nerd Geek Lab is changing how the world learns and up-skills.

We are committed to equality and access to education and skills training irrespective of gender, geography, economic status or any other barriers that can so often stunt potential. So we offer a range of free courses that meet the many diverse needs of our learners. The UN declared in Article 26 of the 1946 Declaration of Human Rights that “Education shall be free…”. This statement will always inspire us.

Nerd Geek Lab was founded by Nerd Geek Lab CEO, Sunny Ahlawat. Mike is a businessman, but one with a difference. He believes in social impact, and that you can build a financially successful business focused on meeting a huge global social need, making education and skills training more accessible for everyone. He invites anyone who believes that too, to support the Nerd Geek Lab mission.

Nerd Geek Lab is free of charge to you. But it’s still a business – albeit a socially-focused one. We are a social enterprise making our money through advertising, merchandise, and the sale of Certificates and Diplomas, should a graduate choose to buy one.
