Update: Latest features & Lingvist Unlimited



  • @ave
    Hi,i have seen that there were questions related to access to unlimited but did not find any response yet,which is way to strange. Also i did not find any instructions how to switch from lingvist free to lingvist unlimited. So how to switch to lingvist unlimited if the gift certificate is already activated and nothing changed?



  • @ave thanks for your quick reply. I can see the French challenges now. And yes happy to give my bit of faith in Lingvist.

    Hi all!

    Popping in to hopefully give some clarification on some of the questions you've brought up in this thread.

    Firstly — we had to temporarily disable the Challenges in French, since we found a bug that made the speaking exercises very difficult to use. They're all back now, I hope for you too @ebastidas3! If you don't see exercises in the Challenges area right away, do a few words with Learn first — Challenges take a bit of time to load.

    Next up — update on the timeline for German (and Russian too) @Nikola-Đukić. We're still working on the exercises and hope to have the first batch with you in a few weeks time.

    Lastly, about the timing of our subscriptions launch — Part of the reason we offered such a large initial discount was in recognition of this fact: we essentially were asking people to take a small leap of faith with us. In return, we made a long-term subscription as affordable as we could, and are letting people lock in that intro rate for as long as they keep their subscription active, even as we add more and more features.

    Thanks for keeping us on our heels, all these questions are helping us clarify our communications and improve the product!



  • Hi @Ave, I got Lingvist Unlimited and last week (2017) I could see all of the Challenges section in Spanish and French, but not the layout changed and I can't see any of the challenges anymore (I'm using the latest Google Chrome in a Mac). Can someone help me to solve this problem? I paid for a subscription and instead of getting access, now I can't use the challenges, what's wrong!? 0_1515005360801_Screen Shot 2018-01-03 at 7.28.46 PM.png



  • Thanks for all your answer.
    It's perfect, on Chrome Web Navigator, the sections Defis (Read, Listen and Grammar) are available.
    Best regards,

    Fair enough! I've done some of the challenges in Spanish, and they are certainly nice and well made. I'm not entirely sure yet whether they are useful for actual learning, but I guess we'll see... 🙂



  • @annika_a That makes sense 🙂 In my opinion they introduced subscriptions too early since we didn't have a chance to test the actual features that they plan on introducing. I got the 1 year subscription but I'm still not sure what did I get actually 🙂

    @nikola-đukić They way I understood it is that Unlimited gives you access to everything they offer (ie the same as everyone had in 2017), whereas the change is experienced by users who didn't sign up for Unlimited, who have fewer features than they had in 2017.

    So, for example, I have more features in my Spanish course than in my Russian course (and than you in your German course, it seems). I expect they will roll out things in different courses as they go along



  • @ave Nope. It was my stinking bank. However another comment - it's really hard to find the button to sign up for unlimited. Maybe make it more obvious? Thanks!



  • @ftt I totally agree with you, we should get a clarification on the timeline regarding the German course. I have also had high hopes that launching of the Lingvist Unlimited will bring us new features in the German course but now it's unclear when will that happen. It also means that designation "Unlimited" is untrue since the new features are limited only to some courses. I sincerely hope new features get introduced to German learners soon.



  • Not to sound like a broken record, but can you guys clarify when Unlimited subscribers will see changes for their courses / apps? For example, I use the latest Firefox on desktop and the latest iOS app on my phone and study German. I don't see any changes anywhere (I expected getting access to reading and listening exercises). When am I going to see them? If the feature is not ready, why is it announced?



  • @Kiveli-Papadopoulou

    BTW: I was speaking about the Spanish course (from English) and Opera 36 browser (equals to Chrome 49+).



  • @Kiveli-Papadopoulou

    Try opening those challenges on a desktop browser which supports the Web Speech API, like Chrome, Opera.

    Opera e.g listed many challenges for me up to level 10.

    Only the "Check microphone" button was not working for me anymore....

    On Firefox and the Android app (on an emulator) the Challenges symbol is empty.

    I do expect that you need to be an account holder for "Lingvist Unlimited" to be able to access the challenges, however it was said in the blog / pricing table that "Lingvist Free" users can access up to one challenge per day....so probably it should work just fine.

    Hello @ave ! I subscribed for Lingvist Unlimited, and even though I updated the app, the challenges section isn't available yet? Also, I'm able to open it on desktop, but there are no challenges there either. When are they going to be released?



  • Hello,

    I have a account on lingvist since several months to learn English. Now, I will see the news functions with free account, but on the Web I don't find the defi, the read and listen section. I have juste the learning section ?
    Can you help me ?

    Thanks for all.

    Hello. I paid for Lingvist unlimited, but nothing changes. May be I did something wrong?

    I am having the same problem. Should I log into Lingvist unlimited after I purchased it?

    Hi all, I too have been having problems with subscribing to Lingvist Unlimited, through multiple cards and similarly to Nick Gorton, not from a lack of funds. I've also cleared the browser cache. I'm really excited for Lingvist Unlimited and would love to partake - does anyone have a fix for this?


  • works@Lingvist

    Hi @thomas-heiss! I'm afraid our Android team is on vacation over the holidays and I can't answer your questions about emulators.

    What I can say is that the "speak to answer" feature is publicly available to all learners in the build you're referring to and you can find it in the Learn section right above the keyboard:

    Hi @nick-gorton! Sorry to hear this! I have an inkling of what might be wrong. Could you please try clearing your browser cache and see if the payment goes through then?
