Get this app now !

This app is simply perfect ! Don’t be afraid to spend your money on it, it’s going to save you a lot time of struggling with free apps or with hundred of books. (The web version is better but it’s OK )

PS : I love the new update, it’s easier to use, and more beautiful! Thanks to all the team behind LingQ and all the courses providers !

the best system I've used

Great update: I find sentence mode quite useful for the first few times through a challenging text.

Le wow! I've used many different systems and websites--all very helpful--and am now an intermediate/advanced student of french. This system is perfect for language acquisition, especially the links: words that we are learning that are highlighted in any lesson, so that we can see them again not just as an isolated word but in multiple contexts. This and the combination of text plus audio is unbeatable. Repeated listening and reading is the key to language acquisition. Add to that the act of actually speaking the language (I haven't tried their learning communities yet) and you have everything you need.

Learning a language takes time and effort. I can now converse with a francophone for hours but am continuing to learn and am just beginning Spanish with this app.

Highly recommend.

Best way to learn French

After using a dozen of other French learning programs I find this one is the most enjoyable and effective. You just get used to listen to content you find interesting and improve your French at the same time.
