Learning Beyond Borders:  A Ling Scholarship

As an advocate for language studies and on-to-go education,
Ling is pleased to announce its new scholarship program!
At Ling, we believe your learning should be three things: fun, effective, and accessible. To ensure your success in all three of these areas, we’re constantly improving and upgrading our language learning app. 

First, we work towards making our app fun by having both engaging content and an inviting interface. Next, we work towards making our app effective by making sure you learn vocabulary and phrases that can be used in real-life situations, and that you receive immediate feedback on your learning progress every step of the way. Lastly, 
we work towards making our app accessible by ensuring that you can learn anywhere, any time, and at an affordable price. 

However, this year, we’re also proud to offer the Learning Beyond Borders Scholarship because we want you to experience these learning values firsthand.
