“Could not recommend @Lingvist more highly, definitely a site to check out if you want to expand your foreign language vocabulary!” — Danny Ward, Twitter

“My conclusion is that it is a wonderful app, especially suited to reasonably intelligent learners who can spell, and who appreciate or need to learn the real language heard, spoken, read, and written in the 'real world'.” — Helen Myers, teacher

“In short, then: Lingvist’s method appears to be bludgeoning lots of words into your head really quickly, but – almost paradoxically – in a manner that’s not in the least bit stressful.” — Craig Grannell, Stuff



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.

Happy learning!

It won’t let me upgrade to the Unlimited. It just gives a ”Request Failed” error message.

Can’t choose dialect

Yes, they mentioned the vosotros form in high school 50+ years ago, but didn’t seriously teach it. Today, none of my friends who speak Spanish as a first language have heard of it. I asked a friend’s parents (in their 80s) about it and they had not heard of it. I don’t know how to look it up in any of my references.
The reference in the app claims that Spaniards use tu y vosotros, but latinoamericanos don’t. On the Contrary, I’ve always been taught tu & all my friends from Texas, Mexico, Honduras, Puerto Rico, etc use it.
I like the references. Would be nice to have as separate app.
Would be nice to be able to choose which dialect of Spanish to practice.
