German gets an upgrade... or two


  • works@Lingvist

    Hello Forum-Community! 🙋

    I have two exciting things to say:

    NUMMER EINS

    • We have one brand new German module out, teaching you the most important words and phrases around ⚽FOOTBALL⚽️. Germans and Austrians obviously love this sport and talk about it quite a bit.

    ...Monday mornings in the office if there was a big game, before the World Cup, during Bundesliga, in the midst of Champions league season … you get the point. 😉
    So check it out - it’s a pretty short but intense course (180 cards to play through).

    We also added some of the most famous players from every nationality represented at Lingvist. Those of you that have been with us longer (@dev_temp @Kyle and many others) feel free to take guesses which player represents which employee as far as their nationality is concerned.

    NUMMER ZWEI

    • Our general German course is finally getting an extension. 2 steps here: - The module will be increased from 4000 to 5000 forms in the next few weeks.
      -Then it will take another leap … updates on this still to come.

    Have a great week! And post reactions to the Football module below! ⬇



  • @dani-mo Why don't you try again until 06/27/2018?
    You can access all "Lingvist Unlimited" features this week and profit from the no max 50 words / day learning limit.

    Hey folks, @Alex-Zorach is right! A bunch of new words were added today.
    The German from English course got expanded to 4915 words!!!

    All the thanks go to @Lisa-Lingvist 🙂 🇩🇪
    Learn them all ; )



  • It looks like a bunch of new words were added today! I've learned 35 already and it shows no sign of stopping...I think I've learned as much as I want to for the day.

    I'm excited about this! The Lingvist course already got me far enough that I was able to understand most of listening to Deutsche Welle and read stuff online only having to look up occasional words. But I think the difference from 4000 to 5000 word forms is still tangible: 81-85% of a typical text is a substantive difference, and those words also can help self-expression!

    @marina That's wonderful! Thank you for the update 😀 The Football feature doesn't really work as it is capped with the maximum number of the words. Can't wait!

    Hi @bocajmil
    The Football module is out ⚽

    As for the course extension, I know @Lisa-Lingvist has been focusing on checking course audio files recently. Checking audio files means looking into each word and each sentence and coding them phonetically like this:

    We are not interrupting her in the office to preserve her flow... It seems that by the end of the next week we might see something happening.

    Hope it gives you as much sweet anticipation as it gives us!

    When is it going to be released? Seems like it's taking forever. Please give us an update on the progress.


  • Lingvist graduate

    Dear Lingvist, when will the announced German extension be available? The sooner would be the better! Thanks


  • Lingvist graduate

    I'm still waiting for the course to increase to 5k! When will it actually come out? Anyway, I appreciate whatever you devs are doing.



  • @jpasjim don't be sad, due to highly sophisticated innovative approached that are used in Lingivst's development and testing there is a variance in word count displayed. You should not expect those number to match. If it says you have finished the course on the web and on the phone, then you most likely did 😊



  • In my case, being a paid user, I reached the limit of 3943 words more than a month ago. Unfortunately, so far they haven’t added any new entry. I´d like to know why my limit is lower than yours.



  • I’m currently a free user and stuck at 3960 words. How many words are there in total now? Do I have to upgrade in order to learn new words from now on?
