Forget dry, dusty language textbooks and hours of rote learning. With Lingoda, you can learn a new language in a fun, interactive way – no matter your skill level. Their expert teachers -exclusively native speakers- will guide you through engaging conversations and exercises, so you can start speaking your new language with confidence. You also have the choice between 1-on-1 classes or a group class.
Price and Subscriptions:
If we take English as an example, Lingoda offers two types of subscriptions: "Monthly subscriptions" and "Marathon courses" (for intensive courses). Classes start at €6 / $6.75 per class, depending on which plan you use. Lingoda offers a 7 day free trial so you can try it first and see if you like their classes.
Overall, the price is reasonable, and the 7 day trial makes it easy to try out their classes without any risk.
Once you've created an account and chosen your subscription plan, you'll be able to select your course level. For English, they offer beginner (A1), intermediate (B1) and advanced (C1) courses. They also have a "business English" program. The courses are organized into units, and each unit has several lessons.
The lessons are around 25 minutes long, and there is a short quiz at the end of each one. You can take the quizzes as many times as you want in order to improve your score. After you've completed a unit, you'll be able to see how well you did on the unit quiz, and how many points you earned.
You also receive a certificate each time you finish a level (for example B1 English), that you can later use to show your employer or add to your CV.
Overall Learning Experience:
The overall learning experience is good. The classes are interactive, and the teachers are native speakers. I also like that there is a quiz at the end of each lesson, as it helps you to check your understanding. Additionally, I found the lessons to be well-organized, and the units progressed logically.
Languages and Courses:
At the time of writing this review, Lingoda offers classes in English, French, German, and Spanish. They are planning to add more languages in the future. As far as courses go, they follow the CEFR framework (from A1 to C1).
Overall, I am happy with my experience at Lingoda. The price is reasonable, the classes are interactive and well-organized, and the teachers are native speakers. If you're looking for a way to improve your language skills, I would definitely recommend giving them a try.
