    About Lingoda

    For those of you who don’t know, Lingoda has been a sponsor of my YouTube channel for a very long time. I first uploaded a video about them in 2016. The reason I have partnered with them for so long is simple. They are awesome! When I started working with them, I did what I always do for a product review. I didn’t tell anyone what I’m doing and I acted like a student. Then I looked at it from a learner’s perspective and asked myself, would I let my kids take classes or use this product? With Lingoda, the answer has always been a resounding YES. 

    Lingoda’s Curriculum

    The first thing that impressed me about Lingoda is their curriculum. I have been teaching German in a classroom for over 10 years. I wish the curriculum at my school was as well written as the curriculum at Lingoda. From A1 to C1 they have lessons designed to take your language skills to the next level. Each level has been carefully curated to build step-by-step until you become confident not only in your ability to listen and understand the language, but also to speak it. From day 1 you will be speaking the language you are trying to learn. 

    Each lesson has tons of practice built in. Not just reading, but listening and speaking in real situations with real native speakers as teachers. While you will learn grammar with Lingoda, you will also learn how real Germans speak real German in real situations. Their lessons are practical and packed with information from beginning to end. 

    Lingoda Average Class Size

    The second thing that impressed me was their class sizes. I never had a class that had more than four students in it including myself. This includes lessons in French and lessons in German. With class sizes this small every student has ample opportunity to practice the skills learned in the lesson. you have plenty of chances to ask questions or clarification as well.

    Get to Know Your Teachers

    I also often had the same teacher for several classes in a row so you get to know your teacher, they get to know you and together you can advance your language skills. When the teacher knows who you are and what your goals are they can help tailor the lesson to your needs. Making those bonds with the teachers is incredibly helpful. 

    Not Just Another Sponsored Lingoda Post

    I personally have taken classes with Lingoda on 2 levels. I took a few A1 classes in French just to see what it looks like from a beginner’s perspective. Then I took over 30 lessons in German at the C1 level to help brush upon my German skills before taking the TestDaF. Both times I saw improvement in my language skills. In my French lessons, I learned some of the basic phrases you might need and started to figure out how to read and pronounce things in French. I only took a few classes in French, but I feel like I got a pretty good foundation in the language. 

    With my German lessons I really just needed to brush up on some vocabulary and grammar I hadn’t used since college. The lessons I had were a great review of some things I had forgotten about and I even managed to learn a few things I hadn’t known before. I really enjoyed the variety of the lessons. Everything from Mozart to the Big Bang Theory, they really have it all covered. 

    What I’m trying to say is that I’m not just a YouTuber who is sponsored by Lingoda. I’m a customer, a language learner and a success story. I have been teaching German for over 10 years. If they can improve my German skills, imagine what they can do for you. 

    The Newest Lingoda Language Sprint Challenge

    Enough about me. Let’s get back to the newest Lingoda Language Sprint. I already mentioned, you need to sign up by April 16th and your classes will start on April 28th.
