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 !

Best language learning app

I’ve been using LingQ for 5 years, and I still think it’s the best language learning app.

The best language learning app

The best language learning app I’ve encountered so far. Amazed at he progress I’ve made on French in just two weeks compared to what was essentially zero progress made in the years I was taught it in grade school, or all the hours I spent on Duolingo.
