The world is your oyster. But are you ready to look beyond your own backyard when it comes to finding the pearl? If you're planning a summer getaway that includes soaring overseas, or your business requires you to communicate with people internationally, why not first invest some time in learning a new language or two with Lingoda?


Lingoda is an online language school that doesn't use pre-recorded lessons or one-size-fits-all materials to help you learn. Instead, it's led by professional teachers and native speakers who are fluent in each of the languages offered: Spanish, French, German, English, and Business English.

Each class spans 60 minutes, and you'll learn everything from the basics like greetings, numbers, and days of the week to navigational queries, adjectives, and more. But you won't just be learning words and phrases. Lingoda's classes are designed to give you time to speak in the language you're absorbing and practice your pronunciation. You'll also be given the opportunity to train your ears to pick up on different accents, with over 1,600 international teachers with regional dialects and unique ways of speaking.

You'll receive personalized feedback during every session as well, as you work with students around the world at every stage of the learning process. What's more, you can interact with every teacher during each live lesson, and ask questions to help further your understanding of each new language building block. Get real-world examples of how words are used, speak to other students, and use each session to glean valuable experience that a book just can't offer.

The learning doesn't stop when class is over. Study class recaps and annotated PDFs from your teachers to better retain what you learned. Plus, complete homework for each lesson and take on self-study sessions to expand your horizons. Check out Lingoda's blog in your downtime for additional resources and tips as well. There's no limit to what you can learn, and you can do it all whenever you're ready – no frustrating schedules to remember.

Whether you're looking to reach fluency in your chosen language in an efficient manner or you just want to dabble in a new tongue, Lingoda can help you achieve those goals. Take your first step toward breaking down the language barrier between world culture and start learning today.
