Launching next year is ‘Lingo Land Homestay’, a new and unique opportunity to visit the up-and coming-city of Manchester, whilst receiving tailored tuition from Lingora Founder & born and bred Englishman, Edmund.
Alright, admit it. We are all guilty of it - starting the New Year, or a new month, with every intention to learn about a new subject, play a new sport or stop eating a certain type of food.
If you are part of the language learning community and you began your 2019 with your head buried in books, a room full of revision cards and an inbox full of new language newsletter sign-ups - which you are PROMISE you are going to read tomorrow - then you have probably overwhelmed yourself.
‘Sexy’ accents. They’re a HOT topic in more ways than one! What sends one person googly-eyed* and gaga*, may send another barking mad*.
Like the oozing chocolate fondue fountain that you might be sharing with your boo* this Valentine’s Day, are there any accents that make your heart melt? Personally, I don’t have a favourite accent. Or any that I particularly dislike for that matter. I’m in adoration of the authenticity of different voices and love to listen to the variety of dialects from region to region in the UK, and from country to country in the world.
So, you’ve found out about Lingora, written a bunch of texts, left a few audios and received some insightful feedback on your journey to becoming bilingual… what now?
If you’re thinking about signing up to one of our courses, but you’re not sure what to expect, here’s a sneak peek at what to expect in month one of your lessons.
At Lingora, we understand that:
We may be ‘speaking’ the same language, but are we ‘looking’ the same language?
Chat is the most common way that the 7.442 billion of us in the world communicate and it can be a handy way of improving our speaking and listening skills in our target language.
How many people speak English?
As a first language: 350 billion people
As a second language: 430 million people
Today is European Day of Languages! Being bilingual or learning a second language can be beneficial to your working life, social life and also to your education!
Freedom, friends and flyers for the SU parties; Fresher’s week is finally here! And fancy dress is a placing high on your list of priorities; that’s after the slew of shots, spirits and other merry beverages that you’ll find yourself quenching your thirst with throughout the week. And now, clutching your student card close following the guided campus tour, you’re checking out the nearest shops for cheap, cheerful and colour costumes. Trust me. When you stoop to paying for a £3 pizza with purely 2p coins, you’ll begin to see the value in EVERY bit of loose change. My advice?
International Literacy Day highlights the changes and improvements being made in literacy development worldwide.
Why not celebrate your skills and put them to the test by leaving an audio or text on the Lingora site? What will you get in return? Feedback, advice and the chance to chat to native speakers of your target language!
