Lingoal is a full web browser with an integrated bi-lingual dictionary. It is able to turn translations into exercises to use in the app's Learning Tool. You can challenge yourself and friends by setting learning goals (Lingoals!) and let the app coach you to achieve them.
Lingoal allows you to:
-enter any web address and continue from there
- use links suggested by other users of the same language level
The learning process starts immediately. While reading, you can tap unfamiliar words to look them up in the dictionary and save them to your personal exercises in the app’s Learning Tool.Learning is fast and effective with the comprehensive Brainglass method. The Learning Tool keeps track of how well you know words using six different numbered exercise types structured into three word knowledge levels:
A) UNDERSTAND new words to be able to read and listen:
(1) in context, (2) without context and (3) from audio
B) USE new words to be able to write or talk:
(4) in context and (5) without context
C) SPELL words to graduate from the final level:
(6) spelling (type in word with virtual keyboard) in context
The Learning Tool monitors learning and schedules repetition to your personal ability and activity patterns, reminding you to practice at adapted intervals.
FREE – You can use unlimited dictionary translations and save up to 20 words to the Learning Tool . When you reach the limit you can remove previously saved links and their saved words to stay on a free plan for as long as you like.
PREMIUM SUBSCRIPTION – With an active premium subscription you can save words without any limitation. You will also benefit from continuous dictionary updates.
Optional: Register a free user account or log-in with Facebook to be able to access the content from any of your iOS devices and to be able to restore learning activity if you have to reinstall the app by some reason.
