Ratings and Reviews
Great app (add traditional character support pls)
Pretty solid, I love the languages offered. It’s a pretty great app if you get the paid version. I really wish though you could learn Chinese with traditional characters. I don’t really want to learn Cantonese (for the time being) but I also would prefer to use Bopomofo and Traditional Characters instead of Pinyin and Simplified (I just want the option I’m not saying take away simplifies of course). I would seriously love to see this feature come to the app, then I think I would use it a lot more often or consider it a major competitor with apps like LingQ. I love the offerings though, I think though some languages could use a bit more of an introductory part, like how the writing system works for Burmese for example. It kinda throws you in but it’s a good system and wonderful offerings of languages. I would really like to see a desktop version of this and also more configurations in the settings (also traditional characters pretty please 🥺🙏🏻) but it’s a great app you should give it a shot. I will change my review to 5 stars once traditional characters are added as an option.

Good customer service, faulty product
I was really excited to see that Ling offered Slovenian, which is a small language not available in most other formats. I had learned a very small amount already, and I quickly realized that while the written words for boy and girl, for instance, were the words I knew, the spoken words did not match. Turns out there are a couple of different ways to say girl and boy in Slovenian, and one way was used for the written word and the other for the spoken words. Slovenian pronunciation is already difficult for an English speaker; someone trying to match the spoken and written words would have no chance. I used the error-marking capability to mark these and other errors, but there were so many I finally gave up.
To their credit, when I reached out to Ling, they were really nice and very responsive, which is why they have a couple of stars. But to release a language, not as a beta but as something you pay for, when it has so clearly not been vetted at a very basic level, is really irresponsible. A gain, these were very basic errors on simple words that started at the beginning of the lessons. I just logged on to see if they’d been corrected, but they haven’t.
If you want me to help test a language, that’s one thing. But I decided to pay for a year, so ai think that was $60 I can’t get back. I’ve given them opportunities to fix the errors; time to delete the app and cut my losses.

I value your opinion, and I hope you’ll try our app again soon. Cheers! Nick
Sincerely disappointing experience
I downloaded Ling because it was the only app available with an Albanian course. That being said, my review is solely based on my experience with the Albanian course on Ling. The course is organized in a very strange manner and is riddled with an extreme number of errors. For instance, it tells you how the compound letter ‘gj’ sounds (like the ‘dj’ sound in jeans) and then gives an example word of xhep, which doesn’t have ‘gj’ in it at all. This type of error is commonplace throughout the lessons. The course starts by teaching you the words for boy, girl, man, and woman, which is sensible and similar to many other language courses. However, it then proceeds to teach you the words for twenty five, twelve, fourteen, and forty. How that random collection of numbers ever made sense enough to be approved and published is beyond me. The entire course needs to be edited and rearranged to make it even somewhat functional. One additional note, when I downloaded the app it said there was a free one week trial. However, when I downloaded the app it immediately charged me for a one year subscription. I would gladly pay for the subscription anyway, as I need to learn Albanian, but the way I was charged was dishonest at best. Moreover, with the current state of the Albanian course, I feel like I’m getting very little for the money. As the title of the review states, for me this has been a sincerely disappointing experience.
