What people around the world are saying about Lingidy by Vidalingua

"Apps from Vidalingua are hugely popular... they're free and they work offline, handy when you're actually abroad." New York Times

“I tutor students for a living and I appreciate a good learning tool. The new chat feature in Lingidy is a fun way for students to learn with topics they care about. This is the future of language apps.” Harold G.

“I have never found anything like this. You can learn different languages with just one app. This is perfect for me.. very useful for traveling.” Kathryn M.

“Most apps force you to go through completely irrelevant lessons. Lingidy lets you choose what's useful and skip the others.” Lauren W.

Why Lingidy?

* Lingidy immerses you in real-life lessons from the moment you start the app. You learn Greetings, Basic Conversation and Useful Expressions that will have you speaking in a few minutes, instead of wasting time on games designed for dopamine addiction.

* Later lessons step you through situations you’ll encounter on a trip such as Taking a Cab, Asking for Directions, or spending a Day at the Museum. Then things get real with engaging, humorous lessons such as Flirting, Pick-Up Lines and Rejections. And that’s just the start…

* Lingidy uses cutting edge Artificial Intelligence to provide you with endless chat lessons.
Try this… “Hey Lingidy, pretend you are Shakira and teach me Spanish while we are clubbing in Miami.”
Or this, “Hey Lingidy, will you be my Italian boyfriend and teach me romantic phrases in Italian?”
Or even this… “Hey Lingidy, pretend you are Elon Musk and teach me about space travel in English using some South African slang”.

* Speaking exercises use advanced speech recognition to analyze you voice and help you pronounce phrases correctly.

* Word Order exercises teach you how to construct phrases interactively, providing hints if you get stuck.

* Hear any phrase pronounced by tapping on it. Adjust the speed in Settings and select an accent for some languages such as Spanish (Spain, Latin America) and French (France, Canada).

* Looking for a phrase that’s not in one of our lessons. We’ve got you covered. If your search comes up empty, a Translate link appears. Get the best AI-powered translations available in real-time. No other lesson based language learning app offers that.

* Ask other users questions. Got a question about when to use a word or phrase in a specific context? No worries, post them to our forum and get feedback from native speakers around the world.

* Track your progress and set goals.

* Select favorite phrases to create your own study list.

* Picture Exercises for people who learn best with visual cues.

* Spelling exercises. Tap Check button for Hints.

* Difficulty levels in Settings.

* Lingidy is free forever but you can upgrade if you want to unlock bonus content or support our team of Linguistic Lovers from around the world.

* Our mascot, Dolphy, has a rich and sophisticated vocabulary. Owls only seem to know one word, but Hooo’s counting ;-)

Great app for learning what YOU want to learn

I like this app because I can choose what kind of phrases I want to learn. For instance, when I’m going to a new country- I just want to be able to speak in a restaurant. Most language learning apps force you to go through lessons completely irrelevant to phrases I will ever use but this app has tons of categories like “at the bar”, “at the cafe”, “at a museum,” or even activities like “surfing” or “hiking” so it’s nice being able to choose yourself what I will personally find useful and skip the others.

Keep in mind that when it’s listing phrases, you can also click on the phrase to hear it out loud. I didn’t realize that until I had used the app for a while. Also, if you hold down on the phrase, you will have an option to add it to your favorites.

Swedish Dolphins Rule 🐬🇸🇪

I tried previous versions of this app a while back to maintain my Swedish and I liked it a lot. But this version is amazing because you can just have a chat conversation in Swedish, or German French Italian whatever language and the app will respond in that language, and in English translation too so you can compare. And you can chat and respond in Swedish, or English if your Swedish isn’t great and it will translate it in real time. I read that you can ask the tutor to pretend to be any celebrity so I asked it to Bridget Bardot, and it did 😂😂😂😂😂 Hej Bridget, hür må du? Haha So funny, and the tutor can talk about things that only BB would know. And it says that the next version will have real voices, can’t wait for that.

We are very excited for you to try the new version! :)

Lingidy German trial: too little there!

I’m still using the free trial for German. I’m disappointed that there is no feedback (a simple ding of affirmation) for my pronunciation. Also, I really would like further guidance in the form of grammar & usage. Maybe German usage has changed, but are the polite forms of the second person no longer used? What there is in the app is very good. But I don’t really feel a sense of mastery, or insight into usage with any of the content. I’m still trying it out, but it appears I’ll want a different learning program with greater variety & depth. My reasons for learning German include not only travel, but eventual reading knowledge and ultimately some fluency, as well. Your German dictionary app is excellent (premium version), so I simply expected much more in the lesson app. Thank you kindly for the free trial. S. M.

Hello Smatterword,
To use the pronunciation exercise, tap the microphone exercise, say the phrase, then tap the microphone again to indicate you have finished recording. Lingidy should respond with a green checkmark and happy sound if you said it correctly.
If you are not receiving affirmation, then it's probably because you haven't given the proper permissions to the app. Tap on iOS Settings, swipe down and tap on Lingidy in the applications list. Then tap the switches to turn on permission for using the microphone and voice recognition.
Could you please contact me by email at, Attention Marc, to make sure I know you received this message?
Kind regards,
Marc Bolh, Founder Vidalingua
