Which languages are coming soon?

  • works@Lingvist

    Every time you ask us if a new language course is coming soon, a virtual particle of joy pops into existence in the Lingvist universe.

    Considering that we are a language learning app, launching new languages is like launching new flight destinations for us, and as long as you want to learn languages, we can "fly language planes". But prerequisite to every flight is a strong commitment across several teams, from hiring linguists to preparing marketing communications for the new course.

    Some time ago we put together a roadmap of language pairs we were planning to launch in 2017. Among them were:

    • English for Japanese, Portuguese, and Chinese speakers;
    • German, Spanish and Russian for English speakers.

    We've delivered on all of these promises and also launched additional TOEIC and TOEFL courses for our Japanese and Chinese learners.

    We don't have a roadmap plan for the language pairs we will be/would like to be launching in 2018 yet. One of the reasons behind it is that we are currently following up with the other commitments we have:

    • bringing new features into the app (voice input, speaking exercises, reading and listening training, personalized courses, faster and deeper learning);
    • enhancing existing courses with grammar tips and new words.

    You can vote for your most favourite language pair here to help us feel the scale.

    Thanks for learning with us and wanting to learn more! It's great to have you aboard;)

  • @marina So can you give an update of what you have done in 2018?

    And what you plan to do in 2019?

    How much money would you need to expand Lingvist and offer more Languages to be learned from English?
    That supposedly would work for most customers.
    In my experience everyone has some command of English.

    Learning multiple languages via one App is indeed a remarkable tool.

    Have you considered taking your computer to the stock market and offering shares?

    That would give you the capital you need. And me and others would surely be willing to invest.
