Now, one can learn the most basic sentences, phrases and words of a new language with Lingibli.com. Literally, Lingibli is the little green guy you see on the homepage of the website, and this character represents the website’s tool for learning different languages quickly and easily. With the website’s learning methods, you can pick up a language of your choice enough to get around just fine if travelling abroad and present yourself with confidence.
The main idea behind this start-up is that more often than not, people are not motivated enough to learn a new language because they start with the hardest way, and not the simplest. Making language learning a more interactive and fun experience is what the website aims at. Moreover, it can motivate people to carry on their learning further after the initial push given by Lingibli.
The website has a fun design and a user-friendly interface. It works quite simply, wherein a user begins by choosing from which language they want to learn the new one. For example if you want to learn English to Spanish, a link to download a PDF file is displayed on the homepage. You need to open and print the spreadsheet that opens up. The spreadsheet contains the most common words and QR code corresponding to each one.
One needs to cut out those small squares and tag the corresponding objects in your house, such as the bed, TV, lamp etc. Go around with your mobile device and have it scan the QR codes, the app will read it for you so that you can also learn the pronunciation.
With this, Lingibli does the twin job of telling the user the spelling and also the pronunciation of words. According Lingibli, 50% of all conversation is based on 100 words, and these are very same ones they provide in their mobile app. These words are going to be enough to start off on the language and motivate a person to learn even more.
Apart from these features, the app provides five sentences for each word so a user can know how a word can be used in different ways, useful phrases in each language and even a fun game to play with children for learning new words. The app is currently available for Android and iPhone platforms, and indicates planning to come up with versions for Windows Phone, Blackberry and others as well.
