Lingibli Offers Innovative Approach to Learning a New Language

Posted by Phillip Levin on December 30th, 2011
iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

Learning a new language is one of the most challenging endeavors one can set their mind to. And while there are already a couple of options for users looking to utilize iOS in the process, Lingibli offers an innovative and interesting approach to language education.

The company’s app is built on the philosophy that half of everyday conversation in any language is based on just 100 commonly used words. Therefore, the app aims to educate users in the basic, underlying diction that makes up the majority of conversations speakers have on a day-to-day basis. It sounds like a great starting point.

Users can print out QR labels for objects throughout their home, which they can then scan with their iOS device to hear the correct pronunciation of said object. Users can also quickly look up words through the app itself. Lingibli is neatly organized with word categories such as hotel, eating/dining, emotions, shopping and more, making it easy to quickly locate specific words and their foreign version.

Lingibli supports 18 different languages, including: English, German, Arabic, Catalan, Czech, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, Greek, Italian, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Swedish and Turkish.

Perhaps the most exciting part Lingibli is that it’s free. So, for users interested in learning a new language, hit up the iTunes App Store and download away.
