What is a unit?


Each unit is a series of lessons that is continuously updated with fresh new content related to a specific theme. There are a few pop quizzes in between lessons, so pay attention! At the end of the unit, there's an achievement test. You can see your units directly on the guide page. You can have three units active at the same time, but you can complete as many units as you want in your course.

How do I choose units?
When you first start your with Voxy, your units are chosen based on your interests and goals. You learn best when you practice with material that is interesting and relevant to your life! If you ever want to choose other units or enroll in courses, visit the Catalog and browse all the options. You can have up to three units at any time.


Why does the unit repeat?
If you only have one unit, it will stay active when you complete it. It may look like it is repeating because it stays in My Units, but it is continuously updated and contains new lessons daily—the unit is "new" every time you take it—you'll never see the same lesson twice! If the unit interests you, there's no need to stop practicing.

How many units must I do?
In order to improve, we recommend doing between 6 and 13 lessons a week in combination with time spent in the Word Bank, the Grammar Guide, and Live Instruction. You can continue with one unit or you can do many different units. Your course is flexible to help you meet your own specific goals. If you need some guidance about how to spend time studying, check your Study Plan.

Which units are right for my level?
The lessons in your units adapt to your level, so the best way to study is to choose units that are interesting to you.

A pro tip:
Voxy's group classes focus on topics that match the units we have. Visit the Group Classes page to look for an upcoming class that's related to one of the units you're currently taking lessons from. You'll enjoy the class more and have great ideas to contribute!
