Why learn with Ling App? Look at these top three reasons and thank me later!

  • Unlike most apps, which either have too less or too much information, Ling App tends to have precise translations and lessons that are easy to follow for a complete beginner. The best thing is that the lessons are written well and ensure that you won’t go zoning out. Not too short, not too long, just the right amount of information!
  • And finally, the best part is that it has all the modes a learner will need to learn. You might be a book person; we have blog posts and reading material for you. You might be a video-centric person; we have videos and podcasts to help you with that. Or maybe you are a games person and only learn through the gamification of the lessons; we have quizzes, flashcards, and a lot more for you to learn from.
