Above and beyond than any other language learning app!

LingoDeer is easy, intuitive, fun, logical and effective. Whichever way you look at it, it’s much better than any other language learning app on the market, free or otherwise. The progression is logical and follows a useful path. There is no nonsensical sentences like you find in other famous apps. The exercises are varied and the teaching is definitely of a practical nature. It encourages you to apply knowledge, which is the best way to learn.
I also like that they offer lessons in bite-size chunks so it never feels overwhelming. And last but not least, it also lays out the useful knowledge clearly and concisely at the beginning of each lesson so you don’t have to guess at it.
The free version is sufficient if you want to give a new language a go and are not worried about how fast you progress. The paying subscriptions are very cheap, considering the richness and quality of the teaching and compared to pretty much anything else on the market (I have tried all the major ones).
After a couple of weeks only (about 1/2 hour per day), I find myself able to make sentences in Vietnamese and feel confident about my pronunciation as well as ability to keep progressing.
Overall, best language app around, by miles.

Best app ever

Remember when I search for best app to learn languages, this one didn’t appear in any list, only the traditional ones. Next day in the office a friend of mine recommended LingoDeer. I was a quite hopeless until I just used for 20 minutes. It also provides offline mode to download and still learning. Absolutely recommend it, even that is paid and cheaper any cents it’s worthy!

Worth it!

I’ve downloaded more than my fair share of “learn a language” apps to try and learn Japanese and Korean. I’ve had this app for less than a week and it’s already taught me so much. It breaks everything down for you and makes it clear and easy to learn. I’m already feeling so confident with Hangul. Put the time & effort in and with the help of this app, you’ll be speaking a new language in no time!
