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;)
