Lingostan, 1-to-1 learning languages website. Opening awesome promotion!!! 3 free lessons and 10 USD gift!!!By Serrrgio
I'm starting to work as a Spanish tutor (to have informal conversation in my native language) and as a Spanish teacher (to give formal lessons, since I have experience) in a new web called Lingostan. Is a website which goal is to put in contact (through platforms as Skype) people who want to learn a foreign language with people who want to teach their native language.
Since I'm trying to get some audience there, I'm interested in spreading the word... Well, the web is launching, so they have an special offer for students: 3 free trial lessons and 10USD in their wallet to use them to book other future lessons. Not bad at all. Really free: no catch, no credit card required.
The good point for me is that teachers and students can schedule the sessions as they prefer, and also the price. I've tried free websites to practise and the problem is that 99% of people set a meeting and they never show up again (there's no commitment in these days guys, as my grandma says; of course, she says in Spanish...)
Well, as I told you, the web is just starting. This is the reason why the site now is completely free. This is a sort of “beta version”. Usually tutors and teachers will be payed by students, but in this case is the web who pays, to check if everything works. The web is quite simple compared to others, sign in is easy, and they don't ask for any payment data. What I mean is that this is not a cheat.
Too good to be true? Just check it...
I'll be glad to read all your comments (or questions, if I can answer them...)
Lingopolo is a great free language learning tool: http://lingopolo.com/
It is still at an early stage of development but is already very useful to learn to speak Thai, French or Dutch.
You can help improving the content of the website and promote your language! Find more information here: http://lingopolo.com/volunteer
Great that there's such a huge community of people out there just as passionate about learning languages as we are.
I work for a small start-up based in Birmingham, UK, and it is our dream to make language learning fun, fast and effective for everybody.
We've just released the latest version of our language learning app - FlashAcademy (www.flashacademy.com) - which contains more games and more language combinations than any other app. You can learn up to 18 languages from any other language - English to Welsh? Brazilian Portuguese to English? Bahasa to Danish? No problem!
We're really excited about it and hope you guys will be too. We're always working hard to add new languages and are looking to add some character based languages such as Arabic, Japanese and Mandarin in the next few months.
We also have FlashSticks, our unique language learning Post-it notes which you can stick up at home, work and school to make language learning a part of your everyday routine. They've been a big success, so if that sounds like something that could help you with some of the trickiest vocab then head on over to www.flashsticks.com and see what we can do for you.
Hope you have a great time using FlashAcademy or FlashSticks - we hang around on this forum a lot so let us know if you have any comments, queries or issues, or contact us on email@example.com.
Have fun guys!
