Amazing app

I very rarely leave reviews, in fact this is probably the second or third review I have left since I first got an apple device years ago, but I wanted other people int he app store to know that this app is extremely helpful, especially used in conjunction with a few other key apps like ‘pronounce’ and ‘lingq’. Together, all of these utilize multiple aspects of the language learning process to help you learn and retain the information. This app specifically is my favorite though, in just two session of about 20 minutes a piece, I have already seen a drastic improvement in my vocabulary retention. Even further, this app helps you with word forms, grammar and even explains some concepts that would be confusing to a new learner. The only thing I wish this app would include is the ability to utilize the enhanced siri/speech voices (like the ‘pronounce’ app does); utilizing the enhanced voices makes listening comprehension a lot easier, but either way, this app is absolutely amazing and an indispensable supplement for second language acquisition.

The BEST APP for vocabulary...but...

This app is amazing. It’s everything you need to expand your vocabulary in German, Russian, French, Spanish, or Portuguese. Most apps give you just the basics and some structure—even Rosetta Stone—this app teaches you an immense amount of words. Absolutely worth the subscription price for the serious learner.

Having all that said, there is one thing this app desperately needs—to understand we’re busy and we can’t always manage daily studying or even weekly studying. It desperately needs “levels” of some sort so we can go back and study all the words we’ve learned before. I remember quite a bit of them, but after two months of not using them or more, it would be great if I could go back and review those words at-will.

Having all that said, I’ve completed the Rosetta Stone and Duolingo courses and they were okay for the basics, perhaps a few days travel in a country that speaks your targeted language, but this was the vocabulary breakthrough I needed to make German radio stations much more intelligible. It’ll help you get to the point where you can reasonably understand most of the conversations others speak. Great job, Lingvist team, now please consider those additions to the app.

Developer Response ,

We appreciate your detailed analysis and feedback very much! Since our ultimate goal is to "hack" our brain by beating memory curves, Lingvist should prepare the cards you need to practice and revise after weeks or even months of absence. It's evident that we still have room for improvement, thank you very much for the suggestions and we will discuss your idea internally. Please reach out to if you have other comments!

Please read, devs

I downloaded Lingvist a few days ago because I have a passion for learning languages, and there are very few resources for learning Estonian out there. I was almost immediately put down from the very limited word and phrase count, after having searched for months on end. From what I’ve heard, Lingvist is an Estonian-made app, and so I can imagine it wouldn’t be very hard to teach a comprehensive Estonian course for English speakers. After thinking about alternatives for a while, finding none, I decided I’d make the most out of what I had. I started learning for a while, but then, I came across a banner saying I had 48 hours until my trial ended. What? I understand that you need to tax people for your blood sweat and tears while making this app, but you’re cutting off my lifeline to a slowly dying language that I would expect you (developers) would want to revive like the Duolingo-Irish relationship. You have no idea how sad I was to think that there was no way I could look back at the words I learned in 48 hours and many more disappointments. Please, I’m completely fine with you being no better than the crap Rosetta Stone pulls on the world, simultaneously lowering potential for attracting users, but PLEASE, save Estonian !!!
