Perhaps you want to parler Français with flair, or return to your Deutsch lessons. Perhaps you love the lengua Española, or just want to learn to say more than “da” and “nyet” in Russian.
Lingvist is the (very) smart app for you: it’s a language tutor that adapts to its user’s level to help you learn the lingo, fast.
Pick from French, Spanish, German or Russian and indicate whether you’re a total beginner or an advanced learner. The latter group will be shown a sequence of flashcards to help better assess their specific level.
Then it’s time to let the lessons begin. Besides your vocab library (which will grow and grow as you add new words) you can also check out detailed slides on grammar functions, including pronunciation, definite and indefinite articles and forming the negative before enjoying listening and reading exercises. Toggle to the insights tab to monitor your progress – for example, how many words are now in your repertoire.
Regularity is important: set reminders and Lingvist will prod you to do your practice. And it will learn with you: as you get better, your lessons will adapt. Smart, eh? No wonder: the app was developed by a group who worked at CERN, and it’s designed to ensure you’re learning the most useful words in your chosen language. You’ll be a perfect polyglot in no time.
