Michael has been one week learning Spanish with Lingualia (have you seen his introduction video?) here's his testimonial:
Last week I started learning Spanish with Lingulia. It is a recently developed language learning application that is available in English and Spanish. Lingualia claim that they “are set on creating a world in which everyone speaks different languages and where we can forget about outdated, expensive, boring language learning techniques. Our dream has been to design a new system which automatically personalises every learning experience to the meet the needs of each individual student.”
My experience with Lingualia has been mixed. I like the layout and the interactive elements of the app. However, the exercises have a broad range of difficulty during the first level. Some of the lessons I found extremely easy, while others were rather difficult. I suppose this allows the system to judge my level of Spanish before continuing to the next phase of the “learning experience.”
I have tried other language learning apps such as Duolingo and SpeakTribe Spanish, and they are quite similar to a certain extent. I found that Lingualia keeps you on your toes. There is less repetition, so if you are a beginner like me, you may have to do some research or take an educated guess every now and then when using the app.
Overall, I like Lingualia. Each time I use it, I learn something new. However, I have experience some technical issues with the app. I am not sure if it my phone’s fault or the app, but something is not quite right. If you want to start learning Spanish, I would recommend Lingulia. It is free and it teaches you the basics.
