LingQ – Learning languages, simply.
What is LingQ? First of all, it is pronounced “link”…not Ling-Q… because it links you to everything you need to become fluent in another language.
LingQ is an integrated language learning platform combining a unique learning system with an international community of learners and tutors. Right now LingQ offers 10 languages and will be adding to that number over time.
LingQ’s core learning system enables any content of interest to be quickly adapted into a lesson. If you are interested in what you are studying, you will be more motivated to understand it and will learn better. LingQ has a large library of content on a wide range of subjects, most of which is authentic, natural conversation. Not for LingQ, the usual “at the post office” type dialogues. All lessons come with a transcript so that it’s possible for learners to follow along and figure out what is being said before listening to the audio files again.
Our libraries of transcribed audiobooks, podcasts, and interviews are a treasure trove for the motivated language learner. In addition, members are able to import any text from the web for study on LingQ taking advantage of LingQ’s powerful vocabulary learning tools.
A learner reads and listens to a lesson, looking up translations and saving words and phrases to a personal database for review using LingQ’s SRS (Spaced Repetition System) flashcard system.
When ready, members can also speak live with tutors over Skype or have their writing corrected by a tutor using a unique writing correction tool.
The other large component of the site is the community. Members from around the world interact on a forum, meet for discussions, create lessons for each other, and tutor each other. It’s this social component that has largely been missing in e-learning applications until now. It’s a big part of what keeps people motivated and coming back.
Fundamentally, the LingQ system is simple. Just read, listen and learn vocabulary from authentic interesting content. When you are ready, start practicing using that language. That’s it. That’s how you learned your native language, and LingQ believes, that’s how you will learn another language.
