What is Lingopie?

Modified on Sun, 07 May 2023 at 10:45 AM

We at LingoPie believe that when learning is fun and engaging it is more effective. The LingoPie platform offers TV shows with subtitles in their native languages. Each word is clickable so you immediately get its translation (currently translated to English). Every clicked-on word will be added to your personal word bank which allows you to easily review them later with a built-in flashcard feature. In addition, you can adjust the speed of the video to your level of comfort.

Why real shows?
  • Learn a language in context: Language learning programs tend to teach you plenty of expressions that are not used in real life - TV offers you real language with all the most frequent expressions you’ll need to start speaking. 
  • Keeping it Fun: Language learning programs are often boring, we offer shows made with entertainment in mind and a variety of genres allowing you to choose to find something for your own taste. 
  • Shows offer realistic dialogues: Listening to dialogues is a great method to model the dialogues you will have in the target language. 
  • By actively listening to authentic content you spend time in the language, not learning about the language. 
  • Understanding speech is extremely hard, it can get very frustrating and discouraging. The only way to make sense of speech is to listen a LOT. The more you listen, the more you will get used to the sounds and the less jumble it will all seem. 
  • You choose the content that is relevant to you. 
  • Falling in love with the culture will get you the motivation you need when you are frustrated with the learning process and what could be better than TV to get you to know the culture and love it? 
  • No one has time to integrate language learning into our daily routines but somehow we all have time to binge on TV shows.
