Our founder, Mait, started Lingvist while working as a nuclear physicist at CERN in Switzerland. He'd lived in the French-speaking part of the country for years and wanted to expand his social life, but he always found conventional methods a little unengaging and too slow. He needed a better way to learn French – so, he created a prototype, began learning French, took a high-school language exam, and passed with a strong grade.

Today’s Lingvist is the result of that original idea and its basic principles – and we’ve come a long way since then. Founded in Estonia, we now have over 1 million users and a super-talented and friendly team across offices in Tallinn, London, Berlin, and Tokyo.

We believe anyone can learn a language in a fast and effective way.

Amazing for Improving Spanish!!

I have an early intermediate level of Spanish from GCSE and have been looking for something that will help me reach a more advanced level, as most apps out there tend to be more for beginners. And since finding this app my vocab has grown hugely, but the best part is how this app teaches you all the hard grammar of the language but keeps it in context making it easy to learn. Unlike other apps I’ve tried like Duolingo and Memrise they seem to focus solely on vocabulary and most of which isn’t common conversation vocab that you would use daily. But Lingvist has the perfect combination of the most well known vocab and teaches you all the grammar. I don’t normally write reviews for apps but I felt that this app is so underrated and deserves to be more well known by everyone! Also whilst on holiday in Spain I was impressed by how much more I understood the Spanish speakers than the year before and was even complimented by them for my Spanish! Definitely get this app!!! And it’s freee 😁😁

Excellent in many ways but failed for me

I gave this app a month then gave up.
On the positive side, the basic algorithm and UI is very slick, simple and generally well designed. And great that it takes you through more commonly used vocabulary first.

I wasn’t finding it the app helped me to retain the words. I was seeing some flash cards frequently but just couldn’t get them into memory. There are no hints for answers where a human teacher might give you, say, the first letter or syllable. There’s just a blank space which I was staring at blankly thinking “arrrgh not this one again!”

The app made me feel like I’m dumb whereas Memrise gives me a feeling of progress, like it’s trying to help me succeed not just putting questions in front of me and telling me I’m right or wrong.

And there’s no mechanism at all I could see for learning grammar.

This app is worth trying to see if it works for you. There’s clearly a talented team behind it and I hope it improves. It would need to be enhanced a lot to work for me.

Developer Response ,

We are sorry to hear the app didn't work for you! What language are you learning in English? We do have extensive grammar sections, some more than others depending on the language. Also, thank you very much for your feedback regarding hints. We are currently making improvements to the layout and hope to have a change in some of the languages by the end of this quarter. If you have further questions, feel free to write to us at

The best app I have tried

Brilliant concept and involves real conversation techniques not just straight vocabulary and grammar. It is interesting and informative to use. I love the explanatory notes appearing when the word is wrong or you have had to “reveal” the answer. I would give it 5 stars but for the rigidity of translation when there can be more than one word meaning the same. You appear to have got it wrong but it could be a perfectly good translation. Still very good though.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for the feedback. We do try to put synonyms in IF they fit the sentence correctly. Not all the time they do, especially if it is a phrase or saying. If you think you are writing a synonym that is correct, please inform us at so we can confirm it and then add it to the program. Thank you!
