Love Lingvist? Let Lingvists know!



  • Lingvist has been such a pleasant, encouraging discovery. I learned basic German from the Goethe Institut Manila, as well as a basic German university course in my uni. I also learned from a basic French university course last year.

    Although I would prefer attending classes because I think I learn best in that setting (and it addresses the listening, reading, and writing needs for language learning), Lingvist's easy-to-digest (and easy-to-do) 100-card feature breaks the language down for me into chunks. It also builds a habit.

    At the same time, I can access it on both my mobile and on my browser. Although it doesn't have comprehensive grammar lessons, it has made me recall what I've learned from years ago.



  • You guys at Lingvist have the greatest interface! I love the huge variety of words. Some (tuyaux/pipes) may not seem immediately useful, but every time I find myself thinking I've learned a word I'll never use I come across it in something I'm reading. Excellent work! Please never change (at least not too much) πŸ™‚



  • yeh.this app is really good. I am a Chinese student,even the app's class is a little bit easy for me, is still a convenient app to learn language which you want. I will recommend Lingvist to more friends.
    thanks a lot.(ο½€β–½Β΄)



  • I like Lingvist better than any other app of the kind I've tried so far. I like providing words in the context of sentences. Repeating same words in different sentences (actively "under learning" vs "aside in the sentence") is good.
    What I do miss is a way to change learning settings, e.g. to "stress more on repeating already 'learned' words and less on new ones" or vice versa.



  • I keep coming back to LIngvist because I feel that I make more progress than with Duolingo, which often baffles me. I like the sentences, the clear pronunciation, and the usefulness of the sentences. I find some of the bells and whistles of the game-approaches distracting and irrelevant; LIngvist offers more clarity and simplicity. Finally, I like the grammar explanations and verb conjugations, which you can use or not, depending on your own needs.


  • Lingvist graduate

    This is my favorite app for learning vocabulary. Thanks so much for developing it, and I hope you have great success with it!


  • Lingvist graduate

    I love Lingvist! I think it is an excellent complement to other learning systems as it is really focused on expanding vocabulary, which is exactly what I was looking for when I found it. πŸ™‚



  • Love your app. It's very well built and quite useful at supercharging the languages I am learning. Keep up the excellent work.



  • @Pierre-Warnier there is a way to suggest a new language in the corresponding topic. Though, I haven't seen Dutch to be mentioned anywhere in publicly available road maps, so I wouldn't hold my breath for it.



  • Hi! Great website and way to use modern technologies to teach languages! I would really like the ability to suggest new languages that you haven't thought of though. I'm moving to Belgium and would love to learn Dutch this way instead of the traditional route.



  • I only discovered Lingvist yesterday, and I am going to thoroughly recommend it to teacher colleagues and older students. I have written a blogpost here, enthusing about the ease of use, relevant langauge for the real world, accuracy, individualised approach, and sound pedagogy, Well done to the Lingvist Team and your clever founder, Mait MΓΌntel! Here's a link to my eulogy! http://helenmyers.blogspot.co.uk/2017/06/this-afternoon-i-was-passed-article-in.html [Apologies for the long link.. I forgot to write a title before publishing it]



  • After one long year of hard work with no success of learning Spanish at my university I joined Lingvist and immediately improved my grades while attending less classes than ever before. You are the best. Keep up the good work!



  • There is something I really appreciate about a service: the way it cares about the design; Lingvist certainly meets the criteria.

    I have just started using this service, but it looks really good. I wish there was a feature which is really crucial and would be very distinguishing from the other services:

    Short movie clips with subtitles in the target language; thus one can learn far better because when we associate a word with something, the memory of such word becomes more enduring; one is able to understand the pronunciation better and also very importantly, it's good for entertainment.

    For example, we can learn English by a 30-second movie clip with English subtitles of a Star Wars movie.

    You guys would certainly stand out!



  • what i like most is that the "sentence" (= A grammatical unit that is syntactically independent and has a subject that is expressed or, as in imperative sentences, understood and a predicate that contains at least one finite verb.) you give are in my mind already. they are already part of my discussions. So i have incentive.



  • I have completed the learing of 5051 words (English) by Linvist. Can I continue to learn from the begining? The Lingvist system forbid me to do that.



  • It. Is. Very. Good



  • I don't seem to make much progress. It seems to be all about memorising sentences with no context. I wish it was possible to go back to the beginning so I could revise some of the words without having more added all the time. I'm getting totally frustrated. It's also quite boring - the same thing over and over again.



  • @teresa1990w is there anything specific you don't like about Lingvist or it's totally emotional for you?



  • Don't like it at all I'm afraid.



  • I love the way how Lingvist teaches us languages. It's method is so unique, and focuses not only on the meanings of each words but also how to use them. Lingvist has been my partner in learning French and from it, I learned so much essential vocabulary. The only bad-side I can think of is that it only offers four languages for English speakers; hopefully they add more soon. Thank you Lingvist, and to the magnificent team that made this website possible. You rock!
