Amazing app so far. I’m about 70% through the beginner level Korean (A1-A2, topik level 1-2) and can already start to translate short stories in Korean. You learn so much grammar with this app that it becomes a lot easier to translate lyrics and sentences with vocabulary you don’t know. It starts out very formal and then you learn honorifics before teaching you the polite and informal forms. Formal 요 ending comes in about 60-70% through the beginning level. I like this because by the time you learn those you already have a solid grasp of honorifics (the hardest part of Korean) In addition to teaching grammar up to topik level 3, there is a fluency conversation section broken up by level. New conversations between two speakers are added to each level every month. There are reading, and speaking exercises and additional grammar guides attached to these fluency conversations. Clicking on a word will give its definition and helpful grammar points. The only thing I’d like to see added are some short stories. I will explain: Will you learn every word in the Korean dictionary with this app? No of course not. No app or course or text book will do that. I give this app a 5/5 because it has given me the knowledge I need to learn Korean efficiently. You boost vocabulary as you learn about the world in your target language. Reading is an effective way to do this. I learned a lot of French by reading books in French. This app will help you master the grammar you need to reach that level where you learn from reading.
LingoDeer has a solid interface and seems to be a good way to learn the basics of languages. However, the voice recognition for Chinese tones is extremely slow and this is really annoying - Hello Chinese is much faster
I’m a language teacher, so I’m picky about courses and apps. I like the repetition, listening practice, and ability to record. I combine this with a writing app, and I feel I’m learning little by little. Occasionally, there’s a technical glitch, though.
Hands down. So glad I purchased multipass so I can learn Japanese too :) please add Cantonese down the line! Thank you!
Maybe if the developers decided to make the “premium” more affordable more people would actually be willing to buy it. The price for premium is far too much.
I have been wanting to learn French for years. I hope this app is successful and it is I hope everyone else has the same experience as I had!
Great place to start or review.
Lingodeer is so much better to other lingo apps especially with asian languages better vocab building by far
This app was working so well for me, i was learning better than with duolingo and i really thought i could get somewhere with this, but in the first Japanese lesson for english learners, the only other lesson available requires a subscription to do! And you can’t do more lessons without doing that first one! I’m only 13 i can’t buy a subscription! I might have to switch to another app because i can’t learn japanese on an app the requires you to pay to learn. unless you fix this issue, back to duolingo i go!
I’ve never bothered to write a review before, but I felt that LingoDeer deserved it! I’ve been using them for a long time to study Japanese, but I’ve studied a few other languages on here as well. Although I do use a lot of supplementary materials, you could get away with just using LingoDeer - They are, hands down, the best language app you can find. Their lesson scaffolding is intuitive, and they really know how to build on concepts and grammar in a way that makes sense. Someone clearly spent a *lot* of time planning out all of the lessons, and it shows. It’s also great that the majority of their lessons are free. I didn’t pay a dollar for the first year or two I was using it, but I ended up buying the lifetime pass a few months ago. They do digital language education right 👌
