Liked till I couldn’t learn anymore
by anahdhdndnidnfifoppllibd on 2019/12/11 23:47
I loved how it was teaching me I thought I finally found the app to teach me new languages until it asked for me to pay. I don’t have the money to pay, so I had to stop and find a new app still can’t find one. Wish I didn’t have to pay to learn.
Let me go

I am trying to delete my account with this app and it won’t let me go
Learning Korean
by 5 Star Rater Lexie B. on 2019/12/10 18:22
LingoDeer is the best learning website I’ve seen so far, and I’ve been to a lot of them. If you have a notebook, and this app pulled up, you can learn your choice of language really quick. Thank you to the developers of LingoDeer.
5 Minute Quiz
by KariPrincesa on 2019/12/09 20:56
Hi! Ive loved LingoDeer as Ive used it for a while but when i switched from Android to IOS ive been having issues with the 5 minute quiz. its not 5 minutes!! as soon as i start it ends and i use that to help me study the words ive learned. Hopefully it could get fixed soon
Best Language Learning App!!
by Poofywoof on 2019/12/08 21:20
I’ve been in love with languages from a young age. Since then I’ve been on a search for the best language learning app out there! I’m more than glad to say I’ve found it here!!! From an interesting and all-encompassing interface to a wide variety of grammar and vocabulary lessons, this app covers it all!
Really good for Japanese! Highly recommend!
by g3nies on 2019/12/06 18:22
The course is excellent and does a lot of explaining that way you’re not just lost.
Best East Asian language app
by Emyliine on 2019/12/04 20:32
I recommend this app to literally everyone and become personally offended if someone is using an inferior app (coughthatdangowlcough) to learn Korean, Japanese, or Chinese.* No other app, free OR paid, compares to LingoDeer. It's fun. It's easy. And, the rarest gem of all, it TEACHES you-- unlike most other language programs where you are expected to teach yourself and the only real purpose of the app is a constant, mind-numbing test. *I have not tried any of the other languages LD offers so I don't want to say anything bad OR good about them. Not ONLY that, but this app has all the amenities that I have only ever found by paying for an actual class. Built-in vocab and grammar review system, and a lesson practice procedure so that you don't have to retake the same exact lesson fifty times in order to remember it. Everywhere you look there is a way to practice and review outside of lessons. This app is FREE. Stop reading reviews and just download it to see for yourself. //2019 EDIT: for all the confused people-- this app USED to be completely free but they changed it to be paid subscription this year and onward. It's a bummer you missed out on the free content but I completely understand the developers making it cost money because it is way too good of an app and they put in way too much effort for it to be free. IMO it is 100% worth the money.// Thank you so much for this app, it has taught me more Korean in a few months than I have learned from other apps in over three years. My Korean friends recently expressed their shock at how much Korean I suddenly knew and understood. It's entirely thanks to LingoDeer. Keep up the amazing work.
Great! Just one thing...
by Senojingo on 2019/12/04 16:25
Great app for learning Japanese but it keeps asking me to purchase the subscription after I already bought it... Gotta find the restore purchase button to stop it but it'll just do it again a few hours/days later
Worth it
by k55ee57 on 2019/12/03 00:31
I was hesitant about going premium but the education quality that Lingodeer provides is money well spent.
I don’t understand
by dva2.0 on 2019/12/01 01:18
It’s to complicated,just imagine a little kid got this I don’t think they would understand
Amazing app
by ❤️🙃저는 미국 사람 입니다 on 2019/11/30 17:33
Amazing app I would recommend to anyone who wants to learn any language. Very helpful.🙃☕️
A great app with a bad SRS system
by Luciasar on 2019/11/30 15:07
They say this app has SRS but that’s kind of false advertising - the flash cards have no intelligence at all, and they never time out once you get them right. They’re also not even good as basic flash cards because they don’t care what side of the card you saw first! So you’ll need to use Anki or the red Japanese dictionary app in conjunction with this one if you want to actually memorize stuff. It’s really kind of frustrating because the rest of the app is great, essays and lessons, etc but this one part is really crappy and they haven’t touched it in like a year and a half. I’ve spent probably 40 to 50 hours manually copying sentences into Anki, such a waste of time.
Review
by 항글마스터 on 2019/11/28 04:54
I’ve been using LingoDeer for a year so far and it’s helped me understand Korean a lot better. For anyone who’s learning a language I suggest they use LingoDeer for the basics first before getting into conversational and intermediate books that will help you learn the language. Other than that it’s a good app to me
Y’all rock!
by Witold Pilecki on 2019/11/28 04:01
SO much better than Duolingo. The order in which you learn makes a lot more sense, and you’re writing/speaking sentences ALONGSIDE the vocabulary you’re learning. The app is also super easy to use! Haven’t found a single thing I can complain about so far. I was hesitant to pay for it since duolingo is free, but it’s definitely worth it.
Great app!
by spicy soicy on 2019/11/27 19:42
I have been trying to learn languages for 2 years now. I have watched a lot of videos and downloaded a bunch of other apps but it didn’t work. This app improved my skills in just a couple of weeks. Thank you for creating such a great app 💜
Love this app!
by Booms Frosted Funny on 2019/11/25 23:44
I have been using this app almost daily for over 6 months. Korean sentence structure is becoming second nature and I love learning and practicing as often as possible. My vocabulary has grown and the app makes it easy to practice and maintain what I learn. I wish they would come out with a third level.
Better than Duo
by raunka on 2019/11/25 06:58
I consider this better than Duolingo, especially concerning the Asian languages. I feel it’s more accurate and it allows grammar tips in case you want to look far more into it. You can also do practice for pronunciation if needed. I hope more languages come soon, as this apps is on of the best out there.
Best app for Asian languages
by Signaveris on 2019/11/24 00:31
By near and far the best language learning app I've found. They give you very in depth grammar lessons which are incredibly helpful and something that a lot of other apps really lack. Don't think I'd ever want to use anything else
Fantastic Spanish language program
by Sbgreene52 on 2019/11/23 06:33
So very cool - structured but focused on skill development
Best app for Korean
by Olive0218 on 2019/11/23 02:13
I have used so many apps, books, and websites in the past two years trying to learn Korean. This is app is by far the one that helps me learn the fastest. Once you can read in Korean, all the lessons are fun, bite sized, and super helpful. You can go at your own speed and they have quizzes and reviews available so you can practice your weak points. In sum I love this app and it’s semi addicting. I highly recommend.
Great!!! Better that Duolingo!
by I am Cat loaf on 2019/11/21 13:02
Duolingo kept making the sentence structure really weird and confusing. But LingoDeer helped so much. I love how everything is interactive and fun!
Awesome
by Amanda&Josh:) on 2019/11/20 15:01
Love the way of learning but I feel there should be more languages & more material.
There better
by coolchiczzzz on 2019/11/20 02:33
So mad I don’t wanna have to pay to learn the next chapter at least apps let you have a free version. I can’t even test out of the paid one to do the free one.
Sneaky about Payment
by lzstnzn on 2019/11/18 04:32
They worded subscription service to make it seem like you could cancel at anytime, even if paying for year long service. I tried to cancel, but am not getting any money back. I emailed to try to resolve issue, customer service was poor and rude. Huge waste of money. Beyond misleading of payment, teaching methods don’t compare to many other opportunities on the market. Several Korean speaking friends of mine pointed out grammatical flaws which is what lead me to cancel in the first place.
New Subscription
by Kitty5252525 on 2019/11/18 03:41
I was able to access most of the lessons in the app previously, but now I can only access the first lesson and have to pay after that. I don’t have the money to spend on a subscription to learn languages, so I no longer use this app. I enjoyed it before the subscription came about, the lessons were nice, but it could have used a list of all Vocab and grammar learned (cause some of the vocabulary wasn’t on the list). I, as well as many of my fellow Korean learners, are no longer able to use this app due to the expensive subscription. I would have at least liked a notice before the transition, so I would know in advance. It just kind of felt like a slap in the face to anyone who wants to learn languages but doesn’t have money for traditional classes. People go to apps and online resources to learn because often times there is no where else to look for the knowledge. If you are willing to pay for it I would say go for it, but find another app if you’re looking for a free service.
Why
by unkown missing on 2019/11/17 21:32
Stumbled upon accidentally , language not for me , probably very outlier group people , best stay away only very extremely particular few , other cultures languages more acomindating and learnable especially for culture, app probably didnt help , probably nothing can be done, unfortunately app cant make up for culture or language find extremely unmotivated to learn , app probably works alot better for few outliers people , Unfortunately app cant help japanese is unbeffiting
Paid Member but can’t practice!
by s4444m on 2019/11/17 04:38
I really like relearning what I’ve studied through this app and I’m a pretty active user. I like how there’s a listening option and a reading option for all the tests, especially when I just want to listen to music. The stories are also a big help with speaking, and being able to listen to yourself and compare to the video helps gauge how I should pronounce words. Recently, I haven’t been able to practice without LingoDeer offering me a new deal. It also has been crashing. Please fix this soon!! I really love learning new languages through this app
Pretty Good App
by Kammy Kitten on 2019/11/16 23:23
I’ve been using the app for at least a year now and it’s been pretty good. My only request at the moment is to add Latin American Spanish or an option for learners to pick which kind of Spanish one would want to learn since there’s differences in pronunciation and words. Other than that, I’d say this is a good app!
No sound
by Trustworthy Reviews For IOS on 2019/11/16 18:16
I was trying to learn Nationalities for Japanese and it wouldn’t give me audio. There were blank cards that had no answers on them and nothing worked. When I clicked one and answered it said I was wrong
Wonderful App!!!
by Angatita on 2019/11/16 07:07
I’m so glad I stumbled upon this app while learning Korean. Duolingo just wasn’t cutting it for me in terms of lessons sticking (and they start you out learning informal Korean. No no noooo). But Lingodeer made it so straightforward and easy that anyone can learn another language! And it’s taught RIGHT! I used it in junction with Talk to me in korean podcasts and the lessons lined up pretty perfectly :) I also love the review and lesson overview functions so I can take better and more coherent notes :) I recommend this to pretty much everyone starting up Korean. I’m learning Japanese on it now (Korean just didn’t hold my interest) and I’m still thoroughly impressed!!
Amaze.
by Beatrice & Rafaella on 2019/11/15 20:35
My parents would try and try to teach me how to learn French but I just couldn’t. But lingo deer is amazing I can go on and on.
App crashes on start
by 1!1!1!1!1!1!1!!1 on 2019/11/15 06:45
App crashes as soon as I launch it
Great learning tool
by BlossomingChild on 2019/11/14 19:47
I am a beginner Japanese self teaching, my fiancé and I both use LingoDeer in combination with a beginners hiragana workbook and have been making steady progress in teaching ourselves. LingoDeer is very helpful and straightforward. I’m excited to keep practicing and working on my grammar and learning new phrases! Thank you LingoDeer 💕
Great app
by Asin 23 on 2019/11/14 18:29
Thank you developers for making simple and fun to learn a language. It teaches the basic in a very informative way ,without just dumping bunch a words at you . I am glad I found this app and I plan to pay for the full course soon .
Very effective but with bugs.
by SmokeyIX on 2019/11/11 08:18
It’s by far the best app I’ve found for learning Korean. I would rate it five stars, except I have to keep deleting it and re-downloading the app each time it jams up, which is about 80% of the time I try to do grammar or vocabulary reviews.
I love it!
by dookie slapper on 2019/11/10 18:33
I love it! Learning korean is pretty easy using this app.All of the other apps aren’t as organized and they don’t really teach the right thing like the translation is wrong but this one omgggggggg the best learning app! So many choices.
Great app
by immortal1287 on 2019/11/08 05:15
I love this app
Sneaky! Will steal your money!
by MimiKidM on 2019/11/08 00:30
I deleted Lingodeer off my phone months ago, after VERY CAREFULLY ensuring i had canceled my subscription. Because i had deleted it, I did not think i had to pay attention to my subscriptions. But to my horror, i noticed that i have been getting charged the EXORBITANT price of $6.99 per months for MONTHS! Be careful with this app, or it will steal your money! Apparently it has some way of re-activating your subscription even after you cancel it, and delete the app! Its not even that good of an app
life changing !
by zoozoo.c on 2019/11/06 20:25
i have tried so many different apps. i have been learning korean for almost three years and nothing has been as effective as this app. i have yet to buy the full version and will be very soon but i even prefer this over duolingo, rosetta stone, drops, scripts, everything i have tried. maybe its only because im super passionate about korean but these lessons (even just the demo ones) not only are interesting but also explain everything to you in detail. however, i would not suggest only using this app alone. from what ive seen so far it is helpful with vocab and grammar etc, but it is kind of expected for you to already know the alphabet (but there is a sheet of notes with the alphabet and sounds of each letter etc, but no interactive lessons) of the language you’re learning at least for korean. love it so far and can’t wait to purchase the full ver !
Needs more for what you pay
by kreebby on 2019/11/05 13:59
First, a shortened version. The good? The UI is exceptional and the courses are organized really well. There’s pictures, high quality audio and variety in the lessons. You will never feel frustrated with the UI while using it. Faaaar less reliance on English to target language translation than in the competition. The bad? The shortest free trial out of any of the competition, no advanced material, the review system is almost useless, and the app is focused on reading and listening comprehension rather than teaching you to write your own sentences. Now for the long stuff, for those who want to be thorough and for the devs The good: - audio files and pictures help with memorization. Every word has a recording to go along with it. - the structure early on is top notch, slowly introducing new vocabulary and ideas at a pace which keeps things interesting - I love how the English is always in really small letters until the end, keeping the focus SOLELY on the language you are learning. - isn’t just multiple choice; smarter, less “this is obviously wrong” options in multiple choice questions than the competition - the UI is beautiful. You can hide the furigana if you want, you can hide the kanji if you want, and either way it will look great. The devs really thought of everything. - cute little mascot cheering you on - you are allowed to choose what you wish to review rather than being forced to review stuff you might not even use. - quality explanations on grammar points - they make sure to reuse words you learned in previous sections rather than constantly introducing new ones without reinforcing what you’ve already learned. Too many apps do the latter. The mediocre: - forced to unlock ten segments at once if you want to test out or do things out of order. Don’t know one of the ten? Too bad, you have to do them all. - the app will praise you and say you did an outstanding job even if you got half of questions wrong. Doesn’t feel like it’s actually paying attention to my performance. I have to do that myself, which feels a little silly considering the monthly cost. - the lack of output-oriented questions means the user is only working on their reading and listening comprehension rather than their ability to actually say things themselves or put together their own sentences. The bad: - things are locked behind a paywall before you ever get to see what the app is like. The trial is a joke. All the competitors give you more time to try their products than Lingodeer. - the app will not ask you to repeat a question you answered wrong and will allow you to breeze past it. You have to redo the entire section if you want to try that one question again. Annoying. - reviews are just a repeat of lessons and add nothing new. The answers are too easy; choosing the right word out of four or having an audio file give you the answer when you do have to write it out makes it so that you’re never actually forcing yourself brain to find the answer itself. - I’m halfway through Japanese 1 and I’ve learned only a small handful of things to actually say in conversation. Too much of the course centers around describing what other people are doing in a near-stalker like manner. “My brother studies at the library every morning.” “My mom is eating sushi at a cafe.” This isn’t useful after the first few times. If the monthly cost were cut in half I might be a little less strict about my complaints. It’s overpriced, plain and simple. Not everyone has the funds right now to buy a year in advance. You are paying for something that covers the basics and can be gone through in much less time than a full year. I think the devs know that, which is why they’re comfortable with their one year discount.
amazing.
by Tonyromeblast on 2019/11/05 09:47
i love lingodeer, and i came to it about a year ago and some change when i had to pay for another korean-teaching service. what mesmerized me about lingodeer was the fact that it was absolutely free and had a lot of knowledge packed into it. i got far into it, took a break for some months and when i came back there was suddenly a required option to pay for a subscription-based service. it was odd, especially because i couldn't go back and do the lessons i already accomplished, which was proof that it had become a paid service in the midst of my break. while i do pay for the service and still love the app and knowledge it contains (it has taught me a fairly large amount), the reason it isn't a five star review is just because of the fact that payment is required. i do understand it from a business point of view, but what drew me to the app a long time ago was the fact that it was free. it seemed more personal, more casual, like someone was offering to teach me korean to truly help better me without anything in return. that essence of lingodeer has been stripped now that money has been involved, and while, again, i still love and will use the app until i am advanced enough in korean, it isn't the same as it once was.
Motivated to use it every day
by Hedwigthegreat on 2019/11/04 10:41
I love this app. It is very thoughtfully designed so that the lessons are just the right amount of manageable information to keep me moving forward without feeling overwhelmed. I retain what I have learned and am eager to see what is next. I use it in combination with a couple of other apps and find it complements them very well.
Too greedy
by strngndvdl on 2019/11/03 07:54
After first lesson, the app demands payment. Duolingo, by contrast, allows you to take all classes without paying. Also, German pronunciations in the audio material are somewhat unnatural.
I’m really liking it!
by SarahCodes869 on 2019/11/03 04:00
I’ve only had this app since yesterday, but I’m already a premium member! I’ve been attempting to learn Japanese for a while now, and while I had previously learned hiragana and katakana, my grammar and vocabulary was quite poor. I think that this app has one of the best methods I’ve seen! I am also excited to finally be able to learn Korean (and make my grandparents happy), and this app makes it feel less daunting!
Best Way to Learn Oriental Languages
by ResurrectionFire on 2019/11/01 21:28
This has been the #1 App to help me in my journey to learn Korean (한국어!). There are good language learning apps for other languages, but this one is hands down the BEST for Asian Languages! My sister is also using LingoDeer to help her learn Chinese and she is very impressed with its quality. I love Korean and I’m glad to finally find an app that teaches it effectively. THANK YOU LINGODEER! Keep up the good work! 😁👏
LingoDeer is a great supplement to language-learning!
by supermartini on 2019/11/01 15:57
As the title says, this application serves to be a complement or supplement to your language studies. It boasts a wide range of activities, games, and assessments that provide you with multi-faceted approaches to mastering your desired language. The curriculum is provided on a per-level basis, and is hence sufficient for solid ground work in a language (if you are not already self-studying), but as for me I have already taken two (2) years of learning Chinese Mandarin study before coming to LingoDeer. There are things this app has taught me that I haven’t previously known, which excites me to log back in and keep at it. I am currently using it for Japanese, Korean, Russian, Chinese, French, and occasionally Spanish. For best results, I highly recommend using this simply as a supplement to self-study or textbook learning (not limited to these avenues) as it is evidently meant to be. I await the developers’ addition of higher levels to the app — one thing I believe will really make this the absolute best language learning app out there, and my only qualm. As for now, though, my rating stands! This is only app I would ever suggest to another avid language learner, having tried many others in the past. Cheers!
Skipping Lessons
by Ella Katrovas on 2019/10/31 13:20
I originally got LingoDeer to study Japanese but later on, when other languages were added, I wanted to try them out. I speak French at a nearly fluent level but am sure that I could still learn something from the app. Unfortunately, it is quite hard to skip levels: the tests to do so are tedious and long and just three small mistakes, oftentimes typos, will cause you to fail. I would really love if there were maybe an assessment test to easily place you further ahead. Thank you, love the app!
Seriously?????
by sonrisa arquitecto on 2019/10/30 17:53
I laugh over the One Star ⭐️ reviews left for this App. Not Free?? Bam 💥! One star! Something doesn’t work?? Bam💥 !! One star! Such a reviewing system is not only highly subjective, but is also very, very wrong! I am the Lifetime Member of both- The Original Papa LingoDeer Club, and the Bambi LingoDeer Plus Club. I admit: We did have a few hiccups with signing in at the very beginning. But , everything was resolved promptly via classy, professional communication, and respectful attitude coming from the App Support! Before leaving an undeserved rating/review- just try to address your challenges , and send a message to the Super App Support- all will be taken care of within the 24 hours. I enjoy playing and learning at LingoDeer immensely! The up and coming team of young Developers has undoubtedly created two masterpieces, deserving the highest praise, and worth EVERY PENNY for the reasonably priced plans! To the Developers: Extremely well done! Bravo!
Great app!
by J4ke4523 on 2019/10/30 02:21
I’m a native English speaker. I have never spoken any other language, but so far with LingoDeer I have already dramatically improved. I’m learning Japanese, I love the culture, language, food, and Japan itself. It is such a help that I picked up the lifetime membership. Thanks LingoDeer for helping me love learning again!
Fun and challenging
by Amybachoo on 2019/10/28 14:56
I actually believe I can learn Japanese thanks to your app. It seemed way too daunting before.
AMAZING APP ! For Korean
by oliviahozza on 2019/10/27 22:11
This app is amazing without it I don’t know what I would do ! It teaches sentence structure and really good grammar and makes me understand the concepts easily. I bought the 1 year subscription and I’m happy I’m paying for grammar lessons , sentence structure , and a bit of vocabulary and I can pay to support the teachers. I love how you can review weak concepts and vocabulary and listen to story’s and read. It helped my Korean a lot. Also lingo deer plus is a really good app as well. For everyone saying you shouldn’t get this app cause you have to pay , paying is what makes this app so high quality don’t go to duo-lingo is not good for Asian languages and teaching grammar and structured lessons.
Amazing App, But The Price Is Too High!
by ;)boo on 2019/10/27 00:05
So, I downloaded this app in hopes of reinforcing the Chinese I’m learning in school (and also so I don’t have to use subtitles while watching anime haha). And the first lessons for both languages went well- I created an account and completed basics one in both languages with no issues. I wish it would have made learning a little more fun (like adding little mini games with the set of vocab) but it was effective and pretty helpful. The pros of downloading this app are really strong, and I wish I could have given it 5 stars. But the reason that I rated this app three stars is because you have to pay just to unlock basics two! Not even more specific sets like professions or objects or directions or whatever- basics. Combined with the fact that the app doesn’t let you test into higher levels (I used to be near fluent in mandarin when I was little but took a break and forgot a lot of the vocab- I still know the basics though), I didn’t think it was worth it to pay 8.99 for a single month and 19.99 (!!!!!) for just three months. So I basically took off one star for the prices and one for the lack of games and “fun aspects.” Lingodeer developers- I love this app! The visuals are really cute, and it does a great job teaching you new words and telling you what you should work on. And I understand that this app needs a profit. But I feel like that high of a price is a bit too much for what this app offers. If you maybe upped the options (or had a base price for downloads- I would totally pay 8.99 upfront in a one-time payment) this app would undoubtedly earn a five star review from me :)
I haven’t signed in but you will know why
by Blubber&fat.com on 2019/10/26 20:00
First things first, I want to learn Swahili, but guess what? It doesn’t have it. I want to give it five stars but I can’t. Please just get more languages. I heard from other people it’s a really good app, I believe my friends but for now I’ll use Duolingo to learn Swahili. Pleeeeeeeeeeeezzzzzzzzzzz get more languages I want to learn Swahili. So fix this problem really quick and I’ll get this “im pretty sure it’s a good language learner app” Sooooo yeah
Problems
by Natbrat32 on 2019/10/26 09:45
I paid for a premium account that wouldn’t link up to the app. After reaching out twice to the company the messages refused to sync up. Which is an app problem not a service problem. I’m deeply sad cause the learning curve on this was exceptional. But trying to get it to work on my phone became another story completely. I have yet to hear back from the company. And have now wasted money on not being able to learn the language I was hoping for.
Keeps getting stuck on the “buy subscription” ad
by Ejhwolb on 2019/10/25 14:58
This won’t let me move past the first lesson. All it will do is show me the buy subscription ad. I hit X and try to play the lesson again but it just keeping popping the ad back up. Please fix
I love it!!
by Laysha Gutierrez on 2019/10/23 23:35
What I learned on another app in Korean in a week I mastered in a day!! This is the best app I know for learning a new language. It jumps right into easy basic phrases. I’m so glad a friend of mine recommended it. Now, I recommend it to you.
Amazing App, Feature Request
by AvantAveGarde on 2019/10/23 21:43
Really good app and worth the subscription price, I have a feature request for the Japanese part of the App. During the review vocabulary, could you add in a feature for just the Kanji review, so you don’t have to go through vocabs asking you to write in hiragana, tap on the correct picture? Would help a lot so I don’t have to use a separate app as flash cards.
Cute and helpful
by Staellum on 2019/10/23 02:02
This app is super cute and keeps me motivated to keep learning, it also explains everything very carefully and has easy to access information all the time through the modules.
very good app

Best Asian language fluency app 🤩
by Paradise 🛴 on 2019/10/21 01:26
I have had this app for over a year now, and I cannot begin to express my satisfaction with this app. Yes, I have had my bad days to months when it comes to getting up and doing a lesson. nonetheless I am significantly more fluent in Korean then I was a year ago. it is very hard at least in the United States to find a reliable app or site to learn an Asian language. But Lingodeer came in with greatly prepared lessons and their sister app LingDeer+ to help all of us aspiring to learn an Asian language. Such a great app definitely worth the premium payments, love it!
I love the app overall, but I wish I can learn for free
by ccrocks.epic on 2019/10/20 17:15
I love the way it teaches me stuff, but when I got to my 3rd lesson, I had to get a membership in order to continue. Is there a way where I can continue my studies, but for free?
Nice but....
by why.maia on 2019/10/17 18:33
The app is absolutely phenomenal! Only thing that makes me sad about is that you have to pay in order to unlock other levels of it. *cries in broke*
Best Resource I've Tried
by Claire-23 on 2019/10/17 17:28
I've been trying to learn Korean for a little over a year and this is by far the best resource I've found. I have used Duolingo as well as 2 physical textbooks and none have geigen me the satisfaction that LingoDeer has. The focus on grammar from the beginning of the course helps immensely later on. Supplementing in-app lessons with LingoDeer+ helps so much with vocabulary (usually what I struggle with the most.) I bought a full year subscription and it is much cheaper than many other resources for the quality of lesson LingoDeer provides. I enjoy using this app so much that I have started using it to help with the German that I learn in school. The best indicator I can give that this is truly a fun and easy way to learn a new language, is that when I get notifications asking me to practice, I don't just get annoyed and dismiss it; I practice.
Please Add Thai
by My burr on 2019/10/13 08:16
Hello, LingoDeer! I heard of your app and I think it’s amazing that you specialize on Asian languages! I started learning Japanese this year so I’ll definitely use your app to learn! :D My little sister has been wanting to learn Thai but there are very few resources to help her. I really want to help her learn but I can’t find resources. I hope you consider adding Thai to the languages taught on your app!

Way better than duolingo.

The voices are much clearer and help me learn very quickly. Keep up the good work! :)
Well put together

Additional Languages

I hope they add more languages like Danish since it have Russian which is great!
Great App - Suggestion
by dr jstud on 2019/10/04 21:07
Great app. Love it. One learning task that I would like is a typing task that let's you see the English sentence, the Korean sentence/words, and then have the task of typing the Korean sentence out while being able to see the Korean words. There is currently the opportunity to see the English sentence, hear the Korean sentence, see Korean words, but not to see the Korean words and be able to type the Korean sentence. This makes the typing part much harder to do as I'm trying to remember korean words that I don't really know how to spell consistently. The typing part really cements what I learned into my head.
Great for quick lessons on your phone!
by NikosaurusRex on 2019/10/03 19:20
Great app. Love using it before bed or on my lunch break to prepare for my trip to Japan next April
Felt like a fish out of water
by katspfnix on 2019/10/02 03:38
I was referred to the application with the claim I wouldn’t need a text book to use the application. Unfortunately this was not my experience. I’ll keep trying for a few days but unfortunately since I’m unable to afford classes and text books I probably won’t be able to make much use of this application. My advice to the developers is teach people how to use the keyboard of said language before you make people use one, not everyone has seen a Japanese keyboard before. I’m entirely frustrated and burnt out pressing buttons trying to make stuff into other stuff I had no idea where to start and this application did a terrible job of preparing me for that particular lesson. I’ll have to try YouTube I guess but in my opinion with a language learning app that should be an included lesson.
No longer free
by cschilb5 on 2019/10/01 11:09
Heads up guys, it’s not free anymore. Time to move on. Just to dang expensive too. Nothing I hate more than something that was once free but is now hidden behind a paywall. So sad. Also not to mention, it is so darn expensive. Considering it used to be free this is just so sad. 🙁
For pay is gay
by Billikesfreejuice on 2019/09/28 18:23
This app would overtake Duolingo as the premier language learning app globally if pay for content was removed. The millions of additional users who would join if this app were completely free would easily supplement the income if brief ads were used to generate income the same way Duolingo does. By making the vast majority of content pay for use only you are cutting your user base by 90%+.
Disappointing
by paintingducks on 2019/09/28 17:32
I've been using LingoDeer for a long time. I love it and it's been extremely helpful in learning a new language. However, I'm disappointed in the execution of the paid service. I understand that the developers and teachers need to make money, but I personally think it's unfair to cut off all the lessons completely from those who can't pay. If anything, keep the basic lessons free and include extras in the subscription. The sudden change without prior notice is disappointing as well. I've invested so much time into using this app only to be kicked off and now I can't use it anymore. It's unfortunate. I will have to go back to Duolingo
Much better than Duolingo for Korean
by Nattyface on 2019/09/28 11:42
Duolingo got me much farther in my journey learning Korean than trying to figure it out on my own, I’ll give it that, and I still use it for Spanish. However, in two days of using LingoDeer I am actually starting to understand why the grammar is the way that it is and what the structure of the language is rather than just going through the motions of repetition and struggling through sentences because I could not figure out why the structure was changing. Duolingo is good at memorizing, bad at understanding what or why you’re learning what you’re learning. I am excited to continue with LingoDeer and get farther in my quest to learn Korean. Thank you so much for this app developers!
THANK YOU
by Jmoid on 2019/09/28 01:08
I’ve always wanted to learn French, but didn’t want to pay for an app, and LingoDeer come along! It’s been a dream of mine to always learn French! THANK YOU FOR LETTING ME FINALLY HAVE MY DREAM COME TRUE! BEST APP
Garbage App
by Guy123456293 on 2019/09/26 10:45
Go to another app this one is absolute garbage
Can’t go to next lesson
by SavyMansi on 2019/09/25 20:41
I haven't purchased a subscription, but every time I try to move on to my next lesson I keep getting the the Autumn sale pop up. When I close it and click on the lesson agin, it pops back up! Uggghhh😔 Any help please? Thank you! Savannah
Best app to learn a new language
by The_Erdster on 2019/09/23 23:27
If you want to learn a new language, this app is for you. This makes it easy and fun.
Very Effective
by Irrn1 on 2019/09/19 02:00
I don’t usually write reviews for apps, but this is so far the best learning tool I have came across. The way they teach your desired language helps you memorize each word you come across on the app and teaches you the pronunciation of the language. The price is quite high for subscriptions, but is well worth it.
I can’t move on...?
by jg's_angel on 2019/09/18 02:34
I have the monthly subscription but it is not letting me move onto the next lesson??? The buy a subscription page keeps popping up, why...? I have already paid and should be able to go to the next lesson. What gives??!!
OMGGGG😍😍😍
by exu pj pig iv on 2019/09/18 01:07
The best language learning app I learned Korean in in less than two weeks AMAZING who ever made this MAKE MORE PLEASE
Great and Effective Teaching, but..
by licylm on 2019/09/16 05:23
The app is great for learning languages.. but once you make it past the first few lessons, it forces you to pay. I don’t have the money for this app, which I why uninstalled it. I think that it’s a bit unfair to only offer a few lessons and it’d be more reasonable to make lessons free, but limit them and allow more features to premium users. Back to duolingo I go ..
Good level of repetition
by jemckee on 2019/09/14 13:40
The design with built in help, creates a low pressure confidence building program. Thank you very much.
Study Abroad
by HanPancho on 2019/09/13 13:01
My husband is studying abroad, so right now we live in Asia. We have two kids so I stay home with them while he studies the language, but I desperately wanted to learn as well. I’ve been using this app in my free time and I LOVE it. I’ve learned so much and am able to use new words daily.
Best for Japanese compared to competition!
by TheGeoker on 2019/09/13 02:24
I am learning Japanese and out of all the apps i’ve tried, this one is by far has the best explanation, pacing, and interest. I’ve tried Busuu, Memrise, and Duolingo. Each has great features, but they sometimes don’t explain well or advance too fast. Duolingo is for sure the funnest, but I am only learning to read sentences and not reciprocating. I can read tons of sentences, but speaking it after using it for 100+ streak, i can slowly think and murmur sentences. Definitely is great for repetition and learning characters, but it doesnt have the explanation as well lingodeer. Busuu, is great in the beginning showing mnemonic devices to remember words, but there theres a huge jump after a dozen lessons. Also, the repetitions on words is not great at all, im on the next lesson after 8 minutes and I’m jumping to new things when i havent absorbed what i learned just minutes ago. The pace is horrible. The feature to speak with other in the community is great though. Memrise, is probably the second funnest and may possible be the second best before lingodeer, but there is also a jump to harder stuff and not know what to do. It’s less explanation and a lot of go go go. Pinsleur, i currently am using with lingodeer. I can see pinsluer being great for speaking only. Having to exercise your mouth sentences over and over again is great, and being able to do it whole your driving. What it lacks is reading. You will never know characters with pinsleur. LingoDeer wins in detailed explanation and reptition. Its really great.
Professor Recommended
by K. Pitts on 2019/09/12 14:11
I got this app for my college Korean class after my professor requested that we use it as extra practice outside of class and I really love it! It’s a big help in memorizing phrases and pronunciation. (:
I LOVE THIS LANGUAGE LEARNER! Except...
by xXWolfygiRl on 2019/09/11 02:25
Ok, lemme get to the point. is app is FANTASTIC and I can tell the developers really worked hard on this but sadly I think there should be one change. I think that some of these things I’m not sure I really want to learn and others I do. Unfortunately, It doesn’t let me choose the things I want to learn, and it does say I can’t go head unless I buy the premium. However, even though this is not at a high price, I don’t like premiums. I think if you want to earn money, it should be permanent. Otherwise, I think you should let people choose what they want to learn and maybe not have to go through all the lessons they don’t want to know about or learn. For example, I want to learn to speak Japanese. This app really inspires me to learn Japanese, except I don’t want to learn how to write it. Only speak it. And the worst part about it is that the writing lesson is pretty long (not saying you need to fix that, because all the knowledge is necessary) and I just want to skip it without the premium. But don’t get me wrong, this app is still amazing. But I would just really appreciate it if you made that one little change. :) Thank you!
Good learning app
by Caa23458! on 2019/09/10 18:48
I love this app. There is hardly any good Japanese language learning apps and this is one that actually works. They have everything correct and teach correctly. I definitely recommend this app.
Great App
by Oneboi on 2019/09/09 20:06
Very easy to use. Just started with it last week and already am learning grammar/sentence structure. Also love the audio, very clear, easy to understand speaker and easy to repeat. Thank you for a great app!
Love it But...
by TaeShook on 2019/09/08 23:53
Why does it have to cost money on an iOS but not on an android? I recently upgraded my phone to an iPhone and it costs money which is really upsetting because I still want to learn my course without money. It was the best learning app out there for me but this change makes it an app just like the others😔
love this app
by annahilton on 2019/09/08 21:01
I used this app before taking my Japanese class in college and it’s really helped me get ahead and thoroughly understand the language!
Amazing tools and fun to learn
by TechTy on 2019/09/07 18:31
I have tried many programs before and this one is well done especially for learning Chinese. I recommend it.
Error
by kjjah on 2019/09/05 13:40
I really annoyed because i did the payment this app for 1 year, it took me 41$ and i did payment success. But after that when i comeback and study it obliged me payment again. What happen??
Extremely Expensive
by Joe Volk on 2019/09/04 06:15
$90 for a lifetime membership for this app - yikes
Very helpful for Vietnamese!
by JotunSingh on 2019/09/03 18:18
I came across LingoDeer after being disappointed with DuoLingo’s Vietnamese lessons. So far, it works very well! I like how it’s very focused on pronunciation since that’s possibly the hardest part of Vietnamese. My one complaint is that it hasn’t gone into too much detail on pronouns yet, but maybe that’s just because I haven’t gotten very far in the lessons yet. Other than that, I’m pretty satisfied with it!
Amazing! Also, something I’d like to be fixed.
by I hate flappy bird!😠😡 on 2018/07/31 16:28
This is hands down the best app I’ve used for learning a different language, Japanese specifically. I could go on and on, it’s just incredible. I tried learning Japanese last summer and failed miserably, nothing I used helped work for me. This summer I tried going back to it, and I used Duolingo at first. It was good, but I wish I had used this app sooner! Someone recommended it to me and I fell in love instantly! It makes it so much fun, and maybe it’s since I’m just passionate about learning the language, but still! It has all these fun lessons and games, and makes everything very interesting. I’ve only used it for Japanese, but from the rest of the reviews, I can see it’s an amazing app all in all, no matter what you want to learn! I highly, HIGHLY recommend this app for anyone wanting to learn a new Asian language! And I want to give a big thanks to the developers! You guys have done an amazing job! On another note, I’d like to say that there’s something I’ve run into recently that’s kind of bugging me. During the Pop Quizzes, sometimes if I write the answer wrong and try to erase it, the letters will disappear and I can’t finish the answer. Like, if I write “わした” instead of “わたし” and I go to erase “し“ and “た”, one of the two wont go back to my keyboard, so I can’t write it down correctly. I hope you guys look into it because it’s becoming a bit annoying! Thank you! ^_^
WORTH IT!! 💖
by Purrrple Art03 on 2019/07/06 08:33
Honestly, I’ve been learning Korean for a few months through websites and videos, but because the videos and websites didn’t go together, I wasn’t really getting things. I didn’t have a system or structure to learn things in since I didn’t know where to look and practically watched/read anything I could find. I was starting to get unmotivated about studying until I asked a friend of mine what she used to study Korean and she recommended me this app. I remember hearing about LingoDeer before through my fav polyglot YouTuber, iKenna, so I thought “why not check it out?”. BEST DECISION EVER. I tried the first few lessons for free and although it was pretty easy, I wanted more. I skimmed over the lesson topics and checked the membership prices to debate if I should buy it. Eventually I caved in because 1)year long membership was on sale 2) if my favorite polyglot YouTuber used it and recommends it, I trust him. And 3) My friend can hold an intermediate level convo in Korean now. I can tell you for sure that after I got the membership and unlocked all the lessons, I have been glued to this app. I never feel unmotivated to log in each day and learn, I actually get excited and I love how there’s stories at the end of each lesson! I can spend as little as 5/10 minutes on this app to a whole hour! So if you’re wondering if it’s worth it... it is!! Go buy yourself a membership!! Now!!!
One of the best out there!!
by The Slicer's game on 2018/12/22 02:07
This app is really amazing! This app has multiple teachers that help with learning a language. As of right now I am learning Japanese and Korean and I couldn’t ask for a better app. There are several different features I enjoy, such as the knowledge cards which help break down the grammar learned in different lessons to the vocabulary quizzes so I can quiz myself on the vocabulary that I don’t know or need to re-study. A feature I enjoyed that is specifically for the Japanese language is that there is a section where you can just practice and study the kanji independently from the sentences and grammar which is one of my favorite parts. Another feature is that I can change how i can change the difficulty. For example when I have a question on how to read or pronounce I can switch from native Japanese (the characters and kanji together as they would be in a newspaper) to furugana (kanji with hiragana above it), hiragana completely (no kanji) or romaji (Latin letters only of Japanese sounds). Overall I have been with LingoDeer for over a year and I have a come to realize how much I enjoyed this app! And with every update comes a new excitement over with what LingoDeer has waiting for me to try out next!!
There’s potential but the paywall is way too early
by DefineNormal on 2019/06/23 07:55
I understand the need for paywalls, particularly in sophisticated apps where there’s a lot of hard work put in by the developers. But there’s also a need to balance that with giving the customer enough to tell whether the product is worth their hard earned dollars. The two free lessons are the alphabet and nationality-most people who’ve tried to pick up the language for an hour or two on any other system have covered this and there’s so little vocab at this point that the answers are obvious. And the alphabet is a poor indicator of what the rest of the system will look like regardless. So the system looks like it might be good but who’s to say since I can’t test it against material I’m not already familiar with? Even expanding this to an additional lesson or two (the determiner/possessive) would greatly increase the ability to get a sense for the flow of lessons in this app—the very next lesson seems to have a different section “learning tips” that I didn’t try in the previous one. Will every lesson be in a completely different format from the previous one? At this point I can’t tell. Given there seem to be some sixty or seventy lessons in the first level of the language, I highly doubt giving free users the next lesson or two will cut into profits and it certainly would help people like me who are on the fence determine if it’s the right system for them.
Good App, one problem...
by Mateo3019 on 2018/09/11 02:20
I have been using this app since I got it 16 days ago. I have been using it to learn Japanese. It's all good, but the save feature is TRASH. I wanted to keep learning on my chrome book, so I got the app for it, I tried logging in, and all my progress was GONE. ALL of it. Confused, I went back to my phone to find a solution to this problem. I saw a button that said "Progress Backup" so I clicked that, I thought I was good to go. So I logged out and back in. Still nothing has changed. Getting frustrated, I tried to find something that would load my data. I finally found a button on the settings called "Recover Progress", So I clicked THAT, still nothing. This was getting nowhere, so I clicked "Recover Progress" on both devices, STILL nothing. Then I thought, "Maybe it wouldn't work if I was logged in to my account already". So I signed out of my phone, remembering to save my progress before I did that. Again, nothing changed. I decided to give up on trying it on computer, since it obviously will not cooperate. I signed back in to my phone, and all of my progress was GONE. I was downright MAD. How could such a great app like this have such a terrible save and load system? It's downright TRASH and I HATE IT. I've been trying everything to get my progress back. What should I do? Please help :c
我喜欢这个应用程序!
by kurotsukikage on 2019/05/30 05:23
^^ That says I love this app! I’ll admit I had to look up how to write ‘app’ in Chinese but hey, the rest I was able to do after only the first 3-4 lessons of Chinese. I took Japanese in college for 2 years and picked it up fairly quick but this app helped keep me going and practicing after graduating. I decided to use it for learning Russian too, and it’s been very useful with clear pronunciation that you can listen to at actual full speed or a little slower if you need. Finally, I decided to give Chinese a go because I’ve wanted to learn it forEVER and I thought how hard could this be I already took Japanese for 2 years. Well, I’ll tell you, it’s VERY difficult to just ‘start’ learning Chinese because anywhere I looked didn’t explain pinyin OR tone! Crazy that I’d never been able to find good explanations for those BASIC parts of learning Chinese. THAT IS, until this app came along. LingoDeer is worth every penny and more, it is an essential tool in the shed for anyone learning any of their offered languages, in or out of a classroom. I can’t give it a more glowing review. If you’re doubtful, please just do it! You will love it. Read the other reviews, they aren’t lying!!! Thank you developers!!
Love It But...
by RainyCain on 2018/06/02 23:06
I love this app with all my heart. It is so good at teaching me Japanese and this is the only app that has the right teaching style for me. It’s the perfect blend of fun and structured learning, and let alone it is all completely free besides a few in app purchases. This has been helping me study Japanese way better than any book can, however recently this app has been really laggy and hasn’t been responding up to par. My progress bar isn’t loading and progressing at the same speed as I am learning and it just stays empty, my achievements are screwed up (I have been at level 10 for a couple days and still haven’t gotten my achievement for reaching level 10 yet) and usually when achievements do come they are always a day late, I get random achievements every so often like “congrats on reaching 5 hours of study time” even though at the point I was already at 8 hours, and recently my review section has only been including 5 lessons instead of the 10+ I have completed and need to review for. Like I said, this app is the best thing that has come into my life, but I can’t rate it the 5 stars it deserves unless these bugs are fixed. I will still thank all the developers for putting their time and money to make this app for all those who want to learn its selection of languages.

Upset
by XkitcatX on 2019/02/15 05:19
I at first had a app called drops that I used to try and help me learn korean. It wasn’t working that well for me so I wanted to try and find another app. I happened to stumble upon this and at first thought it was the best thing ever. From having a almost 5 star review, and TONS of good reviews I wanted to try it out. I read so many of the reviews and almost all of them talked about how this was the best app ever and that it was “free.” Do literally yesterday I downloaded the app and did the first lesson of nationality. (I already know the korean alphabet). Just from using this app for such a small time I loved it. It had things that seemed like would really help me such as the tips which I found VERY helpful. Then here I am on the last part of nationality doing the story. I did everything and tried to move on to the next lesson. When I did I got worried because it kept of saying that you needed pro. I thought that maybe it was just that lesson or that maybe I hadn't finished the lesson before. Nope checked every lesson after that one and all of them said pro and then I knew I did the lesson before right. It has me so mad because I really can’t afford the amount of money for one month. I saw every where of people saying this app was free. You get literally maybe 2 lessons before you have to pay. I honestly really loved this app but I’m now really upset to know a big chance for me went down the drain.
best learning app ever!
by impressed girl with ADD on 2018/03/05 06:50
i’m someone who struggles with a learning disability making it harder for me to learn languages. which is a real shame because i really like k pop. i sort of started to teach myself on my own with the songs but i couldn’t read actual korean, which is sort of needed in the community. Out of all the apps i’ve tried, this one works REALLY well! they’re very rewarding and seeing the sad little deer makes you wanna try harder when you fail! not to mention the overall design is easy on the eyes! and there’s videos to help you read and speak the language!! duolingo didn’t have that. like tf how am i supposed to know if i’m saying it correctly?? i just wish there was a way they could tell you if your pronunciation is close to the other persons, instead of comparing and contrasting and hearing your own voice over and over again. i know it’s hard to program these things, but it would be sooo beneficial in the end. i stumbled upon this app on a whim and i’m glad i did! i never wanna use another app again for korean TT^TT
Amazing but huge problem
by Confused by how on 2018/12/18 09:25
I’ve been using LingoDeer to learn korean, and honestly it’s amazing not only does it teach grammar rules it keeps you kind of updated on the current uses and which generation more associates with it. Although there is one problem, I was in the middle of learning verbs when the new update came out... I was fine with it so I updated it then when it finally finished and I tried to go back to studying all my progress was lost, it just a blank screen I tried switching languages to see if it was just a problem with the first screen but no, there were no lessons at all. I then tried to reset my device over and over it still didn’t work, finally I decided to log out and try logging back in. They kept saying there’s an error so I should try back another time, I was deflated and left it for a while before coming in again to try once again the app wasn’t working. In the end I was just going to make a new account and just test out all the topics so I could get back to where I was, as I made the new account and selected my language, the lessons still did not show. I’m deflated on what to do and I hope LingoDeer can fix this problem because no one knows what to do.
Better Than Duo for Chinese Beginners
by roscomcmillan on 2019/01/06 17:00
This is a great app for complete beginners studying the languages it offers, because this app is clean, informative, and has no health bar or penalty for mistakes. Duolingo is a great app I use for Spanish, but throws you into Chinese without much information and you get frustrated quickly when your health bar is always empty. Lingodeer has been far more enjoyable in learning Chinese. No health bar and far more information and instruction, both before you start a lesson and during the lesson on selecting sounds and word meanings. You can choose how the app looks and what words/symbols you want displayed during lessons. The drawing characters is a little unresponsive sometimes, but that’s a very minor detail and surely will be improved as the app gets better. Also, this is all free. Edit: Sometimes the story classes don’t end cleanly and just show a blank question at the end, but it’s a minor problem I’ve come across. Still an amazing app and a big thank you to everyone involved with it!
BEST language learning program yet!
by darkequeen on 2018/12/23 15:54
I am a language enthusiast and have tried many different programs over the years but none have come close to LingoDeer. My biggest complaint with most language learning programs is that there are no explanations provided for rules or grammar. LingoDeer in stark contrast provides wonderful grammar lessons in easy to comprehend sheets. For English speakers, there are quite a few languages to choose from (though, as of now, not as many as some other applications) and the exercises are quick, fun, and, most importantly, effective! The review quizzes are a wonderful feature providing a quick and easy way to make sure you’re retaining everything you’ve learned so far. The stories and social features are a fun and unique addition that also add to your understanding of the language. I also feel that the app is very accessible in the free version and the $30 lifetime payment is very reasonable compared to the full versions of other apps with costly subscriptions which add up over time. The only thing I would suggest for the LingoDeer team is the addition of a setting where you can turn off strictly listening exercises, since users not always using the app in situations where they can play/hear phone audio. Overall, this is the best language app I have come across from Duolingo to Rosetta Stone and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this for anyone who is serious about language learning and development. Be a Deer and give this a try yourself! :)
Best App for Korean 💕
by Wuzzlr on 2018/01/21 21:40
I have other apps like Drops or Memrise that are good for vocab words but they struggle when it comes to sentences and they still have a hard time using only 한글, which is essential for learning correctly. With LingoDeer, however, the romanizations were gone right away(you can choose to turn them on if you wish), and I could test up to the level where I was at in my learning! I can always go back and complete any of the old levels for review, and the tips before each of the lessons are really helpful. My other favorite thing is the sentences, they are broken down easily, you can listen and look at each individual word, and you have listening options for voice speed. Plus, the voice sounds perfectly natural and very clear. This app is really helpful if you want to get a good grasp of 한글 and Korean sentence structure! I’ve literally told all my friends who are learning Korean, Chinese, or Japanese to get this app because I love it!! Thank you!!
Very good but room for improvement
by Abikjn on 2018/12/11 03:42
I’m at about 40% through level 1 and the glitches are getting pretty annoying. There is a feedback window, but for all of the times when I have reported incorrect scoring or problems with the user interface I’ve never gotten an acknowledgment or any indication that anyone is reading my messages. On DuoLingo I regularly received messages back either telling me that my response is now included as a correct response, or a reason why it is considered incorrect. Duolingo did not have any of the wonky interface issues that this app has. Sometimes it’s impossible to place a tile where it needs to go so I just give up and submit an incorrect response just to move on. Or you need three tiles to form the correct answer and there are only two spaces. Many other instances that are frustrating. Finally, I usually study at night and I like the dark background, until I finish a lesson and get sent back to the screens with blinding white backgrounds - ouch!!! All that said, it is a very good learning tool if the UI were better it would be a 5!
Amazing App!! I definitely recommend
by Handle-less on 2018/03/09 04:56
Anyone learning a major Asian language should be using this app. First of all, it’s free and there’s no in app purchases.. so that’s like enough said. I’m learning Korean and I have to say I haven’t found a lot of apps that teach grammar and sentence structure as well as this one. It also adds in vocab with every lesson. The pace doesn’t start off too hard, and stays pretty consistent, so you aren’t giving up a few days in. It’s light practice, easily explained, and very aesthetically fun. Would work for kids or adults. I’ve only been using it for about 5-10 min a day, skipping a couple days, for about 2 months and I’m about 70% done with the course, so I feel good about myself. And there are optional review sessions as well (the fact that review is optional is actually really nice compared to some other apps) so when I do finish the app, I’ll just go back and review everything... for the rest of my life probably. 10/10 would recommend 👍🏼
I don’t like it as much as I thought
by squintr on 2019/01/09 15:46
Kind of regretting my purchase of a yearly subscription. Things are things I do like: the human audio recordings (instead of synthesized speech) recording, the ability to record the user’s speech, dark mode, the easy-to-understand interface, slowed audio, fairly good graphics. These things make the app better in some ways than Duolingo. The only problem I’ve found so far, and this is a big one, is that LingoDeer expects you to know many things that it hasn’t taught you, such as when you are trying to complete the Reading and Speaking parts of the Story sections at the end of the lessons. The questions and answers always have so many words/particles that weren’t covered during the course of the preceding lessons. This should be remedied as soon as possible. Even Duolingo gets this right. Why would you require a user to know something when you haven’t covered it? It makes no sense. There are some other things I would like to see added, such as the ability to choose male audio, and the ability to save your recorded videos without having to record your screen as a workaround.
A great app for learning some languages
by Hate chick lover on 2019/08/07 01:31
This app is awesome! I'm using this to begin my journey with German and I definitely think it's worth what I'm paying for it. It gives thorough grammar notes at the beginning of each lesson and covers some good topics while providing great vocabulary. I'm not very far in the app since I want to take my time (plus I'm a lazy learner), but I like it and depend on it. I'm hoping to become at least conversationally fluent in german within 8 months and I think this will lead great into my next method of learning (Assimil). The only downside I've noted so far is the lack of variety this app has in choosing your language, but it's still pretty young and definitely much better than duolingo mobile. Oh, and another thing is I'd like to have the option to type in my answers instead of having to click the letters every time so I can memorize the words better and type faster, since each lesson takes awhile to get through.
I don’t approve of the membership system
by abby 🗿 on 2018/12/06 02:57
This really is a great app, at least for learning Korean. Although I could already read 한글 coming into the app, a brief skim of the alphabet explanation revealed that it was far more in depth than any other app I’ve tried. I love the way the lessons are set up, and I especially love the option to disable romanization, since that usually hinders me rather than helping. The videos are great too, since they demonstrate sentence fluency while speaking. My only issue is the paid membership aspect. I understand that the developers need money, and I love the lack of ads, but I don’t like the idea that my progress could be halted when I reach lessons that are exclusive to premium members. It just doesn’t seem fair. Instead, couldn’t the developers make in-app purchases for freezing streaks/buying cute outfits for the deer like Duolingo does? It would just be nice to have access to the full curriculum without paying for it, as I happen to be broke and unable to become a premium member.
excellent beginning language app
by b737flygirl on 2018/05/08 17:17
Traveling a lot to Asia encouraged me to start learning Japanese. I have been thoroughly enjoying this app for a few months and am done with 56% of the Japanese lessons. (I hope more lessons will be added in the near future.) I like the fact that there is a Test Out mode because it forces me to make sure I know the previous lessons well enough to continue on to more lessons. I began with practically no knowledge of Japanese and feel I have progressed very well and can pick up words and sentences when I listen to the native speakers conversing with each other. I have just started to play around with Mandarin and am learning quickly. I like that this program teaches how to write characters since it is a good reinforcement tool. I can foresee continuing from here onwards (along with continuing Japanese.) I do see myself completing Japanese (and eventually Mandarin) since I am still having fun and still think Lingodeer is a very useful learning tool.
85 days into my streak and still going
by Palmena on 2018/12/31 21:17
This language learning app is amazing. The learning tips section, featured at the beginning of every section, is very useful and comprehensive. Duolingo has something similar but that can only be accessed on the website itself, not the app. The pace of learning is really nice and bite-sized so I don’t feel overwhelmed. The fact that it teaches grammar as well as vocabulary simultaneously is great. I love the reading comprehension questions, I love the matching and I love that is focuses on speaking practice as well. When it comes to learning a language, especially an Asian one, you must also learn how to change your thinking so that you can pick up this language better/ more naturally. I think this app achieves that. Personally I have not noticed any glitches, but even if there are some it doesn’t diminish the fact that this app has one of the best teaching styles out there for learning an Asian language.
I really love the app but bit disappointed
by a laguage learning kid on 2019/07/25 23:27
Hello I’d like to say that I really like this app I had just gotten it yesterday. I’m planning on learning Korean to get my mind off of entering middle school and also because I really love the language. The app over all is good and I like how you are able to do a few lessons before it gives you the option to pay monthly or Annual it is really nice. But I was hopping it was free since I’m a broke kid. But luckily I discussed with my mother and she might allow me to use birthday money that I’m saving up for next year to proceed using this app. Even though I might not be able to continue using this app it was a very nice app while I was using it. I’d like to thank the developers and creators I’d really recommend this app to anyone one who wants to learn some of the languages it gives to learn. But you need to know that it’ll cost money if you want to move on but it is over all very good 👌・ω・.
Love it, but please add better strengthening practice
by Misiaa on 2019/05/13 00:32
Compared to the competition LingoDeer is the best,hands down. However, please consider adding more features. The strengthening aspect of this app is what needs the most work, at the moment I rarely come back to the app because of it. It’s really hard to strengthen specific things (without going back through all the modules to see which you need to study). Why is there no way to see and pick different things like specific grammar points to practice? There is no way to know “what needs strengthening”. You’ve added a review at the end of a class but it does nothing? And usually even if I find the lesson really difficult, the questions are easily guessed so I can get 100%. So you must solve that before adding the features. Please consider improving these aspects, if you do, you could really set a new standard for the industry. Thank you.
Amazing
by Kikaida05 on 2018/12/21 14:33
This is the best app for learning Korean I can find out there. Much much much better than competitors such as Duolingo. Duolingo is not as good because it feels like an aging app that is kind of clunky, has robotic voices for voiceovers, and is very “gamified”, which slows everything down with little cutesy animations and activities that really just slow down my progress. Deer lingo feels way more professional, to the point. I have tried everything, including talk to me in Korean, Korean class 101, but those aren’t as good, because they are like textbook, they are just recorded audio lessons someone made, and not really interactive, so it gets somewhat boring at times. With deer lingo, you are always interacting with challenges, questions you click answers to, and doing activities to learn, which is best way to learn. I really like how it can teach grammar and vocabulary at the same time, and that , since the recent expansion to the program, it has more Korean lessons. It feels like a very dynamic app, that is constantly and recently improving. The free version is great, and the paid one you just pay once for a very low/reasonable fee. Of note, once you pay once for the app, you get the whole program, including all the many languages the app has. I don’t think I have written an app review in a very long time, I just had to give a shout out to this amazing program.
Great so far!
by Hailee D. on 2018/05/29 01:28
I am a beginner in Mandarin. I take a class in high school for mandarin but some aspects (like memorization for example) are too fast while others (grammar and pronunciation) are too slow. This is a very good app if you are learning in a class or even self-studying but need that extra guidance as well as the ability to go at your own pace. It’s good so far! I’m very impressed. I used to used Duolingo but Deerlingo is much more catered to learning Mandarin and these other Asian languages, in my opinion. I might take up Japanese if I can keep up in Mandarin!! Highly suggested on my part. Try it, and if it’s not catered to your learning style, keep looking! Don’t give up on learning a language. That’s the worst mistake a language learner can make. I’ll update on how I like this app in the future. (Also; a suggestion for future updates might be linguistic study to determine the accuracy of a user’s pronunciation when recording.) Thanks!
Love this App
by rjdaws on 2018/07/25 15:26
This program is amazing. I’ve completed Japanese language programs before and honestly didn’t genuine learn the language. They were teaching me parrot tricks and preset dialogue. LingoDeer helped me dream an authentic and pure understanding of the language. I feel like I actually can understand Japanese now rather than just recognize it, if that makes sense. My one complaint is that they do not continue the STORY element of the lessons past the first pets of the program. The stories are fun and honestly a huge help in listening compression. I wish they had stayed through the whole program. I’d be a more confident speaker and better listener if it were there through the whole program. The teaching method of this program has made me confident I can learn other languages as well. I’ve started learning Korean and plan on learning Chinese with this app. This is one of the best language learning programs I’ve ever encountered.
I Love This App!
by ASpoonfulofSUGA on 2019/01/04 19:00
I’ve been using this app for over a year. There are multiple languages to choose from, and part 1 of each language is free to use on LingoDeer. I got through Korean Part 1, which consists of probably about 60-70 lessons, each with 2-4 parts to each lesson. I went through each lesson, and didn’t move on to the next until I felt like knew everything with full confidence. It took me about 48 hours, over the course of a few months to complete Korean Part 1. Part 1 is completely free! It’s the most thorough and detailed Korean learning app I’ve used. It teaches you vocabulary, grammar, sentence structure, etc, and it makes learning fun! I purchased Part 2 and moved on to more advanced learning. I can read korean, speak korean, and have a conversation in Korean thanks to this app. I am not fluent of course, that will take time, but I feel confident when traveling abroad. Thank you LingoDeer!
Handicapped without a membership.
by Lunette Bean on 2018/11/19 02:18
I’m not sure if this is just me. I looked through the reviews and everybody said good things about the in-app purchases; that they weren’t necessary and you could learn without them. I was learning Japanese, I finished “Alphabet” and “Nationality,” the first two lessons. Immediately when I tried to go on to the third it asked me to get a membership. I was confused, I thought this app was supposed to allow me to learn without paying! I tried redoing the previous lesson, and it did nothing. When I clicked on the button that said the lesson was locked it just pulled up the “buy put thing please.” page. I have no intention of spending on this app, but from what I did see it has a nice style and great way of teaching. Im just extremely upset that I was mislead into thinking I could use this app without having to pay. I’d definitely recommend Duolingo over this app; the only purchases are to remove adds. Has anyone else had a similar experience? Why the hell do all the reviews say that I can go through without paying? I’m so confused.
Great! A go to for non-romanized languages
by OceansGal on 2017/10/29 00:24
Duolingo recently released their Korean course, and tbh it was very lackluster I was expecting more. I wanted to learn Korean so I did a bit of searching and came across this wonderful little app! It is perfect for learning Korean, Japanese, or Chinese. It allows you to download the course for offline learning which has to be my favorite part. I love the flashcard options for practicing which is something that Duolingo doesn't have built in. I also like how it gives you learning tips, they help a lot. My only suggestion would be for the Korean course (I'm not sure about the other courses) there should be a section at the beginning that has you write out the letters, they show you the stroke order. They should also have us write out the letters it would be a big help. All in all this is a great app for learning these languages you should give it a try!
I really want to give this five stars, but..
by Heckashrek on 2018/06/29 13:06
Okay, don’t get me wrong. This is by far the best app I’ve used for learning Japanese. Outdoes Duolingo even in terms of lessons and accommodations for different learning styles. However, it gets a little bothersome when I try to input kanji I already know into an answer and it gets marked as incorrect. Why is that? I shouldn’t have to type out “8,000 yen” as completely hiragana for it to be correct when that’s just not realistic, people would either write the number out or use kanji. I’d appreciate it if in another update you would consider including the kanji version for correct answers, especially to consider those who have studied up on their kanji. Also, might I suggest a feedback button within the app so users can quickly suggest to the staff suggestions such as these so we don’t have to write a whole review? That’s one thing that Duolingo does have that this app doesn’t.. Just stuff to consider.
Best App to learn Korean
by WhiteFace on 2017/11/24 13:27
I can’t believe this app is free with no ads. The lessons are good, pretty similar to Duolingo, but the sentences are more accurate and each topic gives you a grammar explanation. Right there, it’s better than Duolingo, but LingoDeer also has reviews specifically for vocabulary and grammar. You can pick and choose what to review. It’s like having your Memrise deck right in the app. This app makes learning simple and fun. You don’t need an app for grammar and another for Flashcards, because this is both. I’ve paid for other apps that do a fraction this one does. Couldn’t be more pleased. I was going to complain that even the higher levels still have the romanization, but then I saw the button on the top right to change your preference. Simple and brilliant. I wish I could type answers without having to select premade tiles, but it’s still great. Thanks a lot!
Why do I have to pay now?
by EddieSconzo on 2019/07/03 16:30
Last year I used this app when I wanted to start learning Japanese and it was amazing the app worked so well and provided so much information and I was extremely happy with it. I learned a lot of Japanese through the app and it helped me out a lot in my college class of Japanese language. I wound up not continuing the language and app and stopped using it so I forgot most of what I knew. Recently I became interested in relearning Japanese again and this was the first app I came to because I knew how fantastic it was. To my biggest disappointment though I find I can’t use anything. All the have is the alphabet and 3 nationality mini lessons that don’t really teach you much. When I used this app last year everything was free I was so surprised when I couldn’t use the same lessons as before. I guess that explains why it won’t allow me to login to my old account on her because it was back when everything was free. This app was great but I’m not paying for something that once was entirely free especially when there’s other apps exactly like this that continue to remain free
Ummmm.....
by butterchez on 2019/07/10 22:25
Okay I love this app. I am currently learning Japanese, Korean, and Chinese. This app is amazing. It definitely challenges you to remember the vocab and grammar structure of the language you are learning. This is good because it helps you learn faster. When I downloaded LingoDeer a year ago, everything was free. For me it is still free. I am already deep into the Japanese, Korean, and Chinese lessons. I recommended this app to my friend and she recently downloaded it. It doesn't let her get past the first few lessons with out a paywall which I don't really understand. Why would this app have no paywall for me but have a paywall for my friend? Don't get me wrong, I am extremely grateful that this app doesn't force me to get a paywall. I'm just confused as to why my friend has to pay? Once I get a good job I'd like to support the creators, but I'm still quite confused about this situation.
😅
by armpyt_hopezii on 2019/03/29 04:29
This app is great, I continued my Korean lessons with LingoDeer and for some reason this app helped me remember things/words/concepts that normally I wouldn’t remember with other learning apps (also explains in a simple way, so when I read I understand immediately and don’t have to spend time figuring out what a definition means). But what disappointed me was when I was actually happy to continue learning a language I’ve been trying to learn for the past two years, I clicked a lesson and suddenly the pro thing appears and then I knew I never had a chance to learn Korean easily because I don’t have any money to pay for memberships, especially now that I’m struggling financially. I erased the app after this... The app is absolutely amazing and I understand that the devs use the money for our benefit, but learning Korean without cost was the only way I could use it, now I can’t. [or idk, maybe I’ll think about]. But I hope the people that use the app can learn their desired language easily, and that the app can continue to improve.
Best Resource I've Tried
by Claire-23 on 2019/10/17 17:28
I've been trying to learn Korean for a little over a year and this is by far the best resource I've found. I have used Duolingo as well as 2 physical textbooks and none have geigen me the satisfaction that LingoDeer has. The focus on grammar from the beginning of the course helps immensely later on. Supplementing in-app lessons with LingoDeer+ helps so much with vocabulary (usually what I struggle with the most.) I bought a full year subscription and it is much cheaper than many other resources for the quality of lesson LingoDeer provides. I enjoy using this app so much that I have started using it to help with the German that I learn in school. The best indicator I can give that this is truly a fun and easy way to learn a new language, is that when I get notifications asking me to practice, I don't just get annoyed and dismiss it; I practice.
New Subscription
by Kitty5252525 on 2019/11/18 03:41
I was able to access most of the lessons in the app previously, but now I can only access the first lesson and have to pay after that. I don’t have the money to spend on a subscription to learn languages, so I no longer use this app. I enjoyed it before the subscription came about, the lessons were nice, but it could have used a list of all Vocab and grammar learned (cause some of the vocabulary wasn’t on the list). I, as well as many of my fellow Korean learners, are no longer able to use this app due to the expensive subscription. I would have at least liked a notice before the transition, so I would know in advance. It just kind of felt like a slap in the face to anyone who wants to learn languages but doesn’t have money for traditional classes. People go to apps and online resources to learn because often times there is no where else to look for the knowledge. If you are willing to pay for it I would say go for it, but find another app if you’re looking for a free service.
The best app for languages
by The best player on this game on 2018/03/04 15:22
When I tell you this is the best app for learning Chinese, Japanese, and Korean, I mean it. I learned basic Japanese a long time ago and even have a book that wasn’t as good as this app! It is also very accurate mostly for all the lessons I’ve done so far. I live in China now and I use this app’s survival Chinese all the time and it has been a main way for me to communicate with other Chinese so they can understand what I want to say lol! I now know my fruits and meats from practicing this app as well so I can understand what I’m reading on menus. I’m definitely going to learn Korean after I finish the Japanese and Chinese lessons because this app is giving you so much knowledge for so little and really teaches these languages in an effective way. Lingodeer has saved my life and educated me on what I need to know. Thank you so much for making this app!
Excellent for learning, but the app has some bugs
by DorothyGunn on 2019/05/29 02:35
As far as the curriculum goes, this app has been incredibly effective at teaching me Japanese. I’m learning far more than I have using other apps, and it’s organized in a very intuitive way that really takes the different ways that people learn into account more than any other education app I’ve seen on the market. However, the app itself is really buggy so that’s why I docked a star. I have lingodeer on both my phone and ipad, and when I go to switch to the other device, even though I’m logged into the same account, I have to restore my purchase every time I switch which makes me nervous. The experience bar also isn’t recording correctly for me. I’ve only ever studied Japanese on this app, but somehow I’ve gained 100 exp in learning French. I’ll definitely keep using this product, but I hope these things are patched soon.
Crashing Fixed, and Here We Are Now.
by Okaru45 on 2018/10/29 19:11
So, the crash I issued has been fixed. Thanks for listening to my concerns. Now, moving on to the actual thing, I’d say that this application is fine for those who want to learn the major Asian languages. It may be a Duolingo-esque app such as HelloChinese, but for what it is, it gets the job done. I do have one tiny complaint. During one of the Japanese lessons, you get words for “man” and “woman”, one of which being 男の人 (otokonohito); but it says that these words could be considered offensive. I have one question for that: if it’s supposed to be offensive to some, then why put it in there at all? 男性 (dansei) and 女性 (jyosei) - the words for man and woman respectively - are much better words; and those words are taught on the Japanese course for Drops! If that app can tell you the word for man and woman in a non-offensive way, then there’s some problems; you’re misleading learners at this point. I don’t know if the so called offensive words are still in there, but if they are, then it’s a big issue. Anyways, aside from that, there’s really nothing wrong with this app in general. It works just fine for what it is. Perhaps someday I’ll go over the whole course and give an even better review, but I don’t know when that would be. Update: Seriously? You have to pay for the rest of the lessons? No thanks. Plus the Japanese keyboard did not want to work for this app. ~ Kind Regards, Okaru45
Best language learning resource, and it’s free!
by Soweeee on 2018/08/06 23:17
This is the best resource I’ve found for learning Korean so far, and as far as I can tell, it’s completely free! First of all, it gives you the option to ditch romanization which helps you improve your reading skills. You also have the option to spell out phrases on your keyboard to practice spelling and texting. It’s one thing to visually recognize a word, but it’s another to be able to spell it on your own from memory. Most importantly, every word or phrase you learn you can hear spoken by a native speaker, which is crucial for natural pronunciation. You also can record yourself speaking and play back the recording to critique your pronunciation. Absolutely love this app! Hope you release more soon. I’d be willing to pay for more content or make a donation, because this app is worth it!
Great app! Needs only one adjustment.
by Wolf's Pack on 2018/08/03 15:08
Update 8/3/18:I really love your app! Yet, the more I learn, the harder it is to review. I want to learn the basics and be able to understand and speak this language. Learning hiragana and katakana is a must, but while learning that, it’s not working to include kanji when most your exercises don’t include them. Example: question appears with the multiple hiragana reply, but if I select the wrong ones (or wrong order) the correct answer displays in kanji. How am I suppose to correct my mistake if the program won’t show it to me? Then the review will say a word, which I known the translation to, know how to write it in hiragana and/or katakana, but the only options are kanji. You have a setting that lets me choose hiragana and romanji, yet the kanji still show up. I’m not saying I won’t learn the kanji at some point, but the foundation is more important at this early stage. Please fix this! Original: Was using Duolingo for a long time, and saw someone recommended this app. I’m very impressed, with no real issues so far. Love all the information about the language break down. Makes it easier to understand how to construct a sentence yourself. Only wish there was like a placement test kind of test, so I could skip over what I know. Not a big deal though; I consider it almost like a refresher. Keep up great work!
Stellar!

Previously I used Duolingo to try to learn Korean but it was difficult to grasp the alphabet properly. Duolingo didn’t have the option to go back and review the alphabet quickly and efficiently. But this app is amazing! Not only does it provide a section to learn the alphabet, but you learn every vowel and consonant WITH the ability to easily review the vocabulary you learned. What really wowed me was that each section comes with “quick tips” that provide a comprehensive lesson on grammar, something that Duolingo tries but doesn’t accomplish well (at the current time I have taken 5 years of german and the german section under Duolingo is my basis for these facts). I also love that I’m not getting hit with ads every five seconds and that this app isn’t focused on getting your money. Overall, cute app, amazing structure, and a very pleased customer.
New favorite app
by n0mad1cwanderer on 2017/10/28 12:59
I love this app! It's my new favorite language app (I also use duolingo and memories). I love that it focuses on Asian languages because many other apps don't do these languages well. I'm using it for Japanese and Korean, and I've found the sequence of lessons to be much more helpful than other apps'. I already know Chinese, but I looked at that too and it looks good. I really like that the Chinese one has a "Survival Chinese" list of vocab/useful phrases for tourists. I'd love to see that in the other two languages as well! The only issue I'm having now is that it doesn't seem to register my streaks properly. I've met the daily goal three days in a row now but it says my streak is zero. Not a big deal at all, but those features do sometimes help motivate me to keep going so I'd like them to work! But again, great job, and thank you for this app!
I’ve tried +20 learning apps and this is #1!

I’m someone who loves the idea of learning Korean but when it actually came down to studying Korean as a young adult it was very hard. I always make excuses for having a busy life for the reason why I couldn’t learn Korean but this app take that all away. It makes me really happy to learn while I’m on this app. I enjoyed the free run so much that I purchased a three month subscription but I’m pretty sure after the three months is over I’m going to get a year subscription because there’s so much this app can teach me. I started off on this app and it honestly feels like a game even though I’m learning Korean and the more I learn the more excited I am to continue with this app. Even if it’s only 30 minutes a day (you can do more or less if you want) it’s still amazing!
An app that is better than a teacher!!
by bluedreamsxx on 2019/06/09 00:16
All I want to say is how thankful I’m for having this app! I appreciate all of your hard work making this app and all of its useful updates. Also, I thank you so much for giving me as well as thousand users the chance to experience languages, and for giving us the opportunity to advance our learning using your easy to use, fun, and very educational app. It changed my life and my way of learning since I used it back in 2018 and there’s no other app that helped me advance in Japanese and Korean as this one did!! Another thing I like about your app is that it’s Free, which helped me a lot since I CANNOT afford -currently- paying for books. So thank you again. You are certainly life changers. P.S: my English is not excellent, so please excuse any mistakes of my writing Thank you.
The best learning app I’ve used! Except for one thing
by cassndrak on 2018/11/03 15:57
When I downloaded this I was excited to see if it was different than other learning apps. And it was an amazing choice! There’s something different about LingoDeer that makes it better. I love how when we finish lessons, there’s a story that goes with it. But just one thing, I told my friend about this because we wanted to learn korean together. But she had a problem when she wanted to learn “Determiner”. She wanted to learn the first lesson, but it said that she had to use pro. When she told me at first, I was confused because when I used this, I’ve never had a problem like that. For me, everything was free. But when she used it, she had to use pro. Maybe it’s just a new thing but it would help if you could answer this question for me. :)
An awesome app that is easy to use!
by Obey_FaZe_Barbie on 2019/05/07 03:37
I don’t normally write reviews but I had to write one about LingoDeer! I started learning Korean about 4 months ago on my own with the Talk To Me In Korean workbooks and was struggling to retain what I had learned but I found with the lessons LingoDeer has, that I was able to remember what I learned a lot better and a lot quicker too! Also with LingoDeer, you can go to a specific part of a word and hear how it should be pronounced but with workbooks, you can’t really do that. You can also slow down the audio a bit to hear the pronunciation a bit better. The reviews you can do is also a really good feature because you can do so by either listening to or reading a word/sentence. The only thing I think would be nice is if you could type out the sentence on a keyboard character by character instead of just picking the syllables. Example: for 이 아이는 중국 사람입니다 you would pick each syllable (example: 이 then 아 then 이 and so on until you complete the sentence) instead of writing character by character on a keyboard (example: ㅇ then ㅣ then ㅇ and so on) But other than that I love the app and would definitely recommend this to anyone who is struggling with learning by themselves from a workbook!
LingoDeer is a great supplement to language-learning!
by supermartini on 2019/11/01 15:57
As the title says, this application serves to be a complement or supplement to your language studies. It boasts a wide range of activities, games, and assessments that provide you with multi-faceted approaches to mastering your desired language. The curriculum is provided on a per-level basis, and is hence sufficient for solid ground work in a language (if you are not already self-studying), but as for me I have already taken two (2) years of learning Chinese Mandarin study before coming to LingoDeer. There are things this app has taught me that I haven’t previously known, which excites me to log back in and keep at it. I am currently using it for Japanese, Korean, Russian, Chinese, French, and occasionally Spanish. For best results, I highly recommend using this simply as a supplement to self-study or textbook learning (not limited to these avenues) as it is evidently meant to be. I await the developers’ addition of higher levels to the app — one thing I believe will really make this the absolute best language learning app out there, and my only qualm. As for now, though, my rating stands! This is only app I would ever suggest to another avid language learner, having tried many others in the past. Cheers!
Great idea but...
by Destiny app on 2019/06/10 02:38
I am by no means fluent in Spanish but I do understand an adequate amount of Spanish. Going through the “test out” function was extremely frustrating. For example, the app gives you an English sentence to translate in Spanish. If you don’t know how to say that sentence in Spanish, you can click on the microphone to listen to it. However, it is extremely difficult to understand the woman’s voice verbalizing the sentence. The only way you can progress through the lesson is to spell each word correctly. You then move on to additional scrambled letters so that you may attempt to spell the next word correctly, so on and so forth. On multiple occasions, the English sentence that was being spoken in spanish was either incomprehensible or incorrect. To progress through the lesson, it literally comes down the the letter. If you can’t understand what is being said or if the sentence is being said incorrectly, how are you supposed to move forward?

Liked till I couldn’t learn anymore
by anahdhdndnidnfifoppllibd on 2019/12/11 23:47
I loved how it was teaching me I thought I finally found the app to teach me new languages until it asked for me to pay. I don’t have the money to pay, so I had to stop and find a new app still can’t find one. Wish I didn’t have to pay to learn.
Let me go
by Exezz987665 on 2019/12/11 02:41
I am trying to delete my account with this app and it won’t let me go
Learning Korean
by 5 Star Rater Lexie B. on 2019/12/10 18:22
LingoDeer is the best learning website I’ve seen so far, and I’ve been to a lot of them. If you have a notebook, and this app pulled up, you can learn your choice of language really quick. Thank you to the developers of LingoDeer.
5 Minute Quiz
by KariPrincesa on 2019/12/09 20:56
Hi! Ive loved LingoDeer as Ive used it for a while but when i switched from Android to IOS ive been having issues with the 5 minute quiz. its not 5 minutes!! as soon as i start it ends and i use that to help me study the words ive learned. Hopefully it could get fixed soon
Best Language Learning App!!
by Poofywoof on 2019/12/08 21:20
I’ve been in love with languages from a young age. Since then I’ve been on a search for the best language learning app out there! I’m more than glad to say I’ve found it here!!! From an interesting and all-encompassing interface to a wide variety of grammar and vocabulary lessons, this app covers it all!
Really good for Japanese! Highly recommend!
by g3nies on 2019/12/06 18:22
The course is excellent and does a lot of explaining that way you’re not just lost.
Best East Asian language app
by Emyliine on 2019/12/04 20:32
I recommend this app to literally everyone and become personally offended if someone is using an inferior app (coughthatdangowlcough) to learn Korean, Japanese, or Chinese.* No other app, free OR paid, compares to LingoDeer. It's fun. It's easy. And, the rarest gem of all, it TEACHES you-- unlike most other language programs where you are expected to teach yourself and the only real purpose of the app is a constant, mind-numbing test. *I have not tried any of the other languages LD offers so I don't want to say anything bad OR good about them. Not ONLY that, but this app has all the amenities that I have only ever found by paying for an actual class. Built-in vocab and grammar review system, and a lesson practice procedure so that you don't have to retake the same exact lesson fifty times in order to remember it. Everywhere you look there is a way to practice and review outside of lessons. This app is FREE. Stop reading reviews and just download it to see for yourself. //2019 EDIT: for all the confused people-- this app USED to be completely free but they changed it to be paid subscription this year and onward. It's a bummer you missed out on the free content but I completely understand the developers making it cost money because it is way too good of an app and they put in way too much effort for it to be free. IMO it is 100% worth the money.// Thank you so much for this app, it has taught me more Korean in a few months than I have learned from other apps in over three years. My Korean friends recently expressed their shock at how much Korean I suddenly knew and understood. It's entirely thanks to LingoDeer. Keep up the amazing work.
Great! Just one thing...
by Senojingo on 2019/12/04 16:25
Great app for learning Japanese but it keeps asking me to purchase the subscription after I already bought it... Gotta find the restore purchase button to stop it but it'll just do it again a few hours/days later
Worth it
by k55ee57 on 2019/12/03 00:31
I was hesitant about going premium but the education quality that Lingodeer provides is money well spent.
I don’t understand
by dva2.0 on 2019/12/01 01:18
It’s to complicated,just imagine a little kid got this I don’t think they would understand
Amazing app
by ❤️🙃저는 미국 사람 입니다 on 2019/11/30 17:33
Amazing app I would recommend to anyone who wants to learn any language. Very helpful.🙃☕️
A great app with a bad SRS system
by Luciasar on 2019/11/30 15:07
They say this app has SRS but that’s kind of false advertising - the flash cards have no intelligence at all, and they never time out once you get them right. They’re also not even good as basic flash cards because they don’t care what side of the card you saw first! So you’ll need to use Anki or the red Japanese dictionary app in conjunction with this one if you want to actually memorize stuff. It’s really kind of frustrating because the rest of the app is great, essays and lessons, etc but this one part is really crappy and they haven’t touched it in like a year and a half. I’ve spent probably 40 to 50 hours manually copying sentences into Anki, such a waste of time.
Review
by 항글마스터 on 2019/11/28 04:54
I’ve been using LingoDeer for a year so far and it’s helped me understand Korean a lot better. For anyone who’s learning a language I suggest they use LingoDeer for the basics first before getting into conversational and intermediate books that will help you learn the language. Other than that it’s a good app to me
Y’all rock!
by Witold Pilecki on 2019/11/28 04:01
SO much better than Duolingo. The order in which you learn makes a lot more sense, and you’re writing/speaking sentences ALONGSIDE the vocabulary you’re learning. The app is also super easy to use! Haven’t found a single thing I can complain about so far. I was hesitant to pay for it since duolingo is free, but it’s definitely worth it.
Great app!
by spicy soicy on 2019/11/27 19:42
I have been trying to learn languages for 2 years now. I have watched a lot of videos and downloaded a bunch of other apps but it didn’t work. This app improved my skills in just a couple of weeks. Thank you for creating such a great app 💜
Love this app!
by Booms Frosted Funny on 2019/11/25 23:44
I have been using this app almost daily for over 6 months. Korean sentence structure is becoming second nature and I love learning and practicing as often as possible. My vocabulary has grown and the app makes it easy to practice and maintain what I learn. I wish they would come out with a third level.
Better than Duo
by raunka on 2019/11/25 06:58
I consider this better than Duolingo, especially concerning the Asian languages. I feel it’s more accurate and it allows grammar tips in case you want to look far more into it. You can also do practice for pronunciation if needed. I hope more languages come soon, as this apps is on of the best out there.
Best app for Asian languages
by Signaveris on 2019/11/24 00:31
By near and far the best language learning app I've found. They give you very in depth grammar lessons which are incredibly helpful and something that a lot of other apps really lack. Don't think I'd ever want to use anything else
Fantastic Spanish language program
by Sbgreene52 on 2019/11/23 06:33
So very cool - structured but focused on skill development
Best app for Korean
by Olive0218 on 2019/11/23 02:13
I have used so many apps, books, and websites in the past two years trying to learn Korean. This is app is by far the one that helps me learn the fastest. Once you can read in Korean, all the lessons are fun, bite sized, and super helpful. You can go at your own speed and they have quizzes and reviews available so you can practice your weak points. In sum I love this app and it’s semi addicting. I highly recommend.
Great!!! Better that Duolingo!
by I am Cat loaf on 2019/11/21 13:02
Duolingo kept making the sentence structure really weird and confusing. But LingoDeer helped so much. I love how everything is interactive and fun!
Awesome
by Amanda&Josh:) on 2019/11/20 15:01
Love the way of learning but I feel there should be more languages & more material.
There better
by coolchiczzzz on 2019/11/20 02:33
So mad I don’t wanna have to pay to learn the next chapter at least apps let you have a free version. I can’t even test out of the paid one to do the free one.
Sneaky about Payment
by lzstnzn on 2019/11/18 04:32
They worded subscription service to make it seem like you could cancel at anytime, even if paying for year long service. I tried to cancel, but am not getting any money back. I emailed to try to resolve issue, customer service was poor and rude. Huge waste of money. Beyond misleading of payment, teaching methods don’t compare to many other opportunities on the market. Several Korean speaking friends of mine pointed out grammatical flaws which is what lead me to cancel in the first place.
New Subscription
by Kitty5252525 on 2019/11/18 03:41
I was able to access most of the lessons in the app previously, but now I can only access the first lesson and have to pay after that. I don’t have the money to spend on a subscription to learn languages, so I no longer use this app. I enjoyed it before the subscription came about, the lessons were nice, but it could have used a list of all Vocab and grammar learned (cause some of the vocabulary wasn’t on the list). I, as well as many of my fellow Korean learners, are no longer able to use this app due to the expensive subscription. I would have at least liked a notice before the transition, so I would know in advance. It just kind of felt like a slap in the face to anyone who wants to learn languages but doesn’t have money for traditional classes. People go to apps and online resources to learn because often times there is no where else to look for the knowledge. If you are willing to pay for it I would say go for it, but find another app if you’re looking for a free service.
Why
by unkown missing on 2019/11/17 21:32
Stumbled upon accidentally , language not for me , probably very outlier group people , best stay away only very extremely particular few , other cultures languages more acomindating and learnable especially for culture, app probably didnt help , probably nothing can be done, unfortunately app cant make up for culture or language find extremely unmotivated to learn , app probably works alot better for few outliers people , Unfortunately app cant help japanese is unbeffiting
Paid Member but can’t practice!
by s4444m on 2019/11/17 04:38
I really like relearning what I’ve studied through this app and I’m a pretty active user. I like how there’s a listening option and a reading option for all the tests, especially when I just want to listen to music. The stories are also a big help with speaking, and being able to listen to yourself and compare to the video helps gauge how I should pronounce words. Recently, I haven’t been able to practice without LingoDeer offering me a new deal. It also has been crashing. Please fix this soon!! I really love learning new languages through this app
Pretty Good App
by Kammy Kitten on 2019/11/16 23:23
I’ve been using the app for at least a year now and it’s been pretty good. My only request at the moment is to add Latin American Spanish or an option for learners to pick which kind of Spanish one would want to learn since there’s differences in pronunciation and words. Other than that, I’d say this is a good app!
No sound
by Trustworthy Reviews For IOS on 2019/11/16 18:16
I was trying to learn Nationalities for Japanese and it wouldn’t give me audio. There were blank cards that had no answers on them and nothing worked. When I clicked one and answered it said I was wrong
Wonderful App!!!
by Angatita on 2019/11/16 07:07
I’m so glad I stumbled upon this app while learning Korean. Duolingo just wasn’t cutting it for me in terms of lessons sticking (and they start you out learning informal Korean. No no noooo). But Lingodeer made it so straightforward and easy that anyone can learn another language! And it’s taught RIGHT! I used it in junction with Talk to me in korean podcasts and the lessons lined up pretty perfectly :) I also love the review and lesson overview functions so I can take better and more coherent notes :) I recommend this to pretty much everyone starting up Korean. I’m learning Japanese on it now (Korean just didn’t hold my interest) and I’m still thoroughly impressed!!
Amaze.
by Beatrice & Rafaella on 2019/11/15 20:35
My parents would try and try to teach me how to learn French but I just couldn’t. But lingo deer is amazing I can go on and on.
App crashes on start

Great learning tool
by BlossomingChild on 2019/11/14 19:47
I am a beginner Japanese self teaching, my fiancé and I both use LingoDeer in combination with a beginners hiragana workbook and have been making steady progress in teaching ourselves. LingoDeer is very helpful and straightforward. I’m excited to keep practicing and working on my grammar and learning new phrases! Thank you LingoDeer 💕
Great app
by Asin 23 on 2019/11/14 18:29
Thank you developers for making simple and fun to learn a language. It teaches the basic in a very informative way ,without just dumping bunch a words at you . I am glad I found this app and I plan to pay for the full course soon .
Very effective but with bugs.
by SmokeyIX on 2019/11/11 08:18
It’s by far the best app I’ve found for learning Korean. I would rate it five stars, except I have to keep deleting it and re-downloading the app each time it jams up, which is about 80% of the time I try to do grammar or vocabulary reviews.
I love it!
by dookie slapper on 2019/11/10 18:33
I love it! Learning korean is pretty easy using this app.All of the other apps aren’t as organized and they don’t really teach the right thing like the translation is wrong but this one omgggggggg the best learning app! So many choices.
Great app
by immortal1287 on 2019/11/08 05:15
I love this app
Sneaky! Will steal your money!
by MimiKidM on 2019/11/08 00:30
I deleted Lingodeer off my phone months ago, after VERY CAREFULLY ensuring i had canceled my subscription. Because i had deleted it, I did not think i had to pay attention to my subscriptions. But to my horror, i noticed that i have been getting charged the EXORBITANT price of $6.99 per months for MONTHS! Be careful with this app, or it will steal your money! Apparently it has some way of re-activating your subscription even after you cancel it, and delete the app! Its not even that good of an app
life changing !
by zoozoo.c on 2019/11/06 20:25
i have tried so many different apps. i have been learning korean for almost three years and nothing has been as effective as this app. i have yet to buy the full version and will be very soon but i even prefer this over duolingo, rosetta stone, drops, scripts, everything i have tried. maybe its only because im super passionate about korean but these lessons (even just the demo ones) not only are interesting but also explain everything to you in detail. however, i would not suggest only using this app alone. from what ive seen so far it is helpful with vocab and grammar etc, but it is kind of expected for you to already know the alphabet (but there is a sheet of notes with the alphabet and sounds of each letter etc, but no interactive lessons) of the language you’re learning at least for korean. love it so far and can’t wait to purchase the full ver !
Needs more for what you pay
by kreebby on 2019/11/05 13:59
First, a shortened version. The good? The UI is exceptional and the courses are organized really well. There’s pictures, high quality audio and variety in the lessons. You will never feel frustrated with the UI while using it. Faaaar less reliance on English to target language translation than in the competition. The bad? The shortest free trial out of any of the competition, no advanced material, the review system is almost useless, and the app is focused on reading and listening comprehension rather than teaching you to write your own sentences. Now for the long stuff, for those who want to be thorough and for the devs The good: - audio files and pictures help with memorization. Every word has a recording to go along with it. - the structure early on is top notch, slowly introducing new vocabulary and ideas at a pace which keeps things interesting - I love how the English is always in really small letters until the end, keeping the focus SOLELY on the language you are learning. - isn’t just multiple choice; smarter, less “this is obviously wrong” options in multiple choice questions than the competition - the UI is beautiful. You can hide the furigana if you want, you can hide the kanji if you want, and either way it will look great. The devs really thought of everything. - cute little mascot cheering you on - you are allowed to choose what you wish to review rather than being forced to review stuff you might not even use. - quality explanations on grammar points - they make sure to reuse words you learned in previous sections rather than constantly introducing new ones without reinforcing what you’ve already learned. Too many apps do the latter. The mediocre: - forced to unlock ten segments at once if you want to test out or do things out of order. Don’t know one of the ten? Too bad, you have to do them all. - the app will praise you and say you did an outstanding job even if you got half of questions wrong. Doesn’t feel like it’s actually paying attention to my performance. I have to do that myself, which feels a little silly considering the monthly cost. - the lack of output-oriented questions means the user is only working on their reading and listening comprehension rather than their ability to actually say things themselves or put together their own sentences. The bad: - things are locked behind a paywall before you ever get to see what the app is like. The trial is a joke. All the competitors give you more time to try their products than Lingodeer. - the app will not ask you to repeat a question you answered wrong and will allow you to breeze past it. You have to redo the entire section if you want to try that one question again. Annoying. - reviews are just a repeat of lessons and add nothing new. The answers are too easy; choosing the right word out of four or having an audio file give you the answer when you do have to write it out makes it so that you’re never actually forcing yourself brain to find the answer itself. - I’m halfway through Japanese 1 and I’ve learned only a small handful of things to actually say in conversation. Too much of the course centers around describing what other people are doing in a near-stalker like manner. “My brother studies at the library every morning.” “My mom is eating sushi at a cafe.” This isn’t useful after the first few times. If the monthly cost were cut in half I might be a little less strict about my complaints. It’s overpriced, plain and simple. Not everyone has the funds right now to buy a year in advance. You are paying for something that covers the basics and can be gone through in much less time than a full year. I think the devs know that, which is why they’re comfortable with their one year discount.
amazing.

i love lingodeer, and i came to it about a year ago and some change when i had to pay for another korean-teaching service. what mesmerized me about lingodeer was the fact that it was absolutely free and had a lot of knowledge packed into it. i got far into it, took a break for some months and when i came back there was suddenly a required option to pay for a subscription-based service. it was odd, especially because i couldn't go back and do the lessons i already accomplished, which was proof that it had become a paid service in the midst of my break. while i do pay for the service and still love the app and knowledge it contains (it has taught me a fairly large amount), the reason it isn't a five star review is just because of the fact that payment is required. i do understand it from a business point of view, but what drew me to the app a long time ago was the fact that it was free. it seemed more personal, more casual, like someone was offering to teach me korean to truly help better me without anything in return. that essence of lingodeer has been stripped now that money has been involved, and while, again, i still love and will use the app until i am advanced enough in korean, it isn't the same as it once was.
Motivated to use it every day
by Hedwigthegreat on 2019/11/04 10:41
I love this app. It is very thoughtfully designed so that the lessons are just the right amount of manageable information to keep me moving forward without feeling overwhelmed. I retain what I have learned and am eager to see what is next. I use it in combination with a couple of other apps and find it complements them very well.
Too greedy
by strngndvdl on 2019/11/03 07:54
After first lesson, the app demands payment. Duolingo, by contrast, allows you to take all classes without paying. Also, German pronunciations in the audio material are somewhat unnatural.
I’m really liking it!
by SarahCodes869 on 2019/11/03 04:00
I’ve only had this app since yesterday, but I’m already a premium member! I’ve been attempting to learn Japanese for a while now, and while I had previously learned hiragana and katakana, my grammar and vocabulary was quite poor. I think that this app has one of the best methods I’ve seen! I am also excited to finally be able to learn Korean (and make my grandparents happy), and this app makes it feel less daunting!
Best Way to Learn Oriental Languages
by ResurrectionFire on 2019/11/01 21:28
This has been the #1 App to help me in my journey to learn Korean (한국어!). There are good language learning apps for other languages, but this one is hands down the BEST for Asian Languages! My sister is also using LingoDeer to help her learn Chinese and she is very impressed with its quality. I love Korean and I’m glad to finally find an app that teaches it effectively. THANK YOU LINGODEER! Keep up the good work! 😁👏
LingoDeer is a great supplement to language-learning!
by supermartini on 2019/11/01 15:57
As the title says, this application serves to be a complement or supplement to your language studies. It boasts a wide range of activities, games, and assessments that provide you with multi-faceted approaches to mastering your desired language. The curriculum is provided on a per-level basis, and is hence sufficient for solid ground work in a language (if you are not already self-studying), but as for me I have already taken two (2) years of learning Chinese Mandarin study before coming to LingoDeer. There are things this app has taught me that I haven’t previously known, which excites me to log back in and keep at it. I am currently using it for Japanese, Korean, Russian, Chinese, French, and occasionally Spanish. For best results, I highly recommend using this simply as a supplement to self-study or textbook learning (not limited to these avenues) as it is evidently meant to be. I await the developers’ addition of higher levels to the app — one thing I believe will really make this the absolute best language learning app out there, and my only qualm. As for now, though, my rating stands! This is only app I would ever suggest to another avid language learner, having tried many others in the past. Cheers!
Skipping Lessons
by Ella Katrovas on 2019/10/31 13:20
I originally got LingoDeer to study Japanese but later on, when other languages were added, I wanted to try them out. I speak French at a nearly fluent level but am sure that I could still learn something from the app. Unfortunately, it is quite hard to skip levels: the tests to do so are tedious and long and just three small mistakes, oftentimes typos, will cause you to fail. I would really love if there were maybe an assessment test to easily place you further ahead. Thank you, love the app!
Seriously?????
by sonrisa arquitecto on 2019/10/30 17:53
I laugh over the One Star ⭐️ reviews left for this App. Not Free?? Bam 💥! One star! Something doesn’t work?? Bam💥 !! One star! Such a reviewing system is not only highly subjective, but is also very, very wrong! I am the Lifetime Member of both- The Original Papa LingoDeer Club, and the Bambi LingoDeer Plus Club. I admit: We did have a few hiccups with signing in at the very beginning. But , everything was resolved promptly via classy, professional communication, and respectful attitude coming from the App Support! Before leaving an undeserved rating/review- just try to address your challenges , and send a message to the Super App Support- all will be taken care of within the 24 hours. I enjoy playing and learning at LingoDeer immensely! The up and coming team of young Developers has undoubtedly created two masterpieces, deserving the highest praise, and worth EVERY PENNY for the reasonably priced plans! To the Developers: Extremely well done! Bravo!
Great app!
by J4ke4523 on 2019/10/30 02:21
I’m a native English speaker. I have never spoken any other language, but so far with LingoDeer I have already dramatically improved. I’m learning Japanese, I love the culture, language, food, and Japan itself. It is such a help that I picked up the lifetime membership. Thanks LingoDeer for helping me love learning again!
Fun and challenging
by Amybachoo on 2019/10/28 14:56
I actually believe I can learn Japanese thanks to your app. It seemed way too daunting before.
AMAZING APP ! For Korean
by oliviahozza on 2019/10/27 22:11
This app is amazing without it I don’t know what I would do ! It teaches sentence structure and really good grammar and makes me understand the concepts easily. I bought the 1 year subscription and I’m happy I’m paying for grammar lessons , sentence structure , and a bit of vocabulary and I can pay to support the teachers. I love how you can review weak concepts and vocabulary and listen to story’s and read. It helped my Korean a lot. Also lingo deer plus is a really good app as well. For everyone saying you shouldn’t get this app cause you have to pay , paying is what makes this app so high quality don’t go to duo-lingo is not good for Asian languages and teaching grammar and structured lessons.
Amazing App, But The Price Is Too High!
by ;)boo on 2019/10/27 00:05
So, I downloaded this app in hopes of reinforcing the Chinese I’m learning in school (and also so I don’t have to use subtitles while watching anime haha). And the first lessons for both languages went well- I created an account and completed basics one in both languages with no issues. I wish it would have made learning a little more fun (like adding little mini games with the set of vocab) but it was effective and pretty helpful. The pros of downloading this app are really strong, and I wish I could have given it 5 stars. But the reason that I rated this app three stars is because you have to pay just to unlock basics two! Not even more specific sets like professions or objects or directions or whatever- basics. Combined with the fact that the app doesn’t let you test into higher levels (I used to be near fluent in mandarin when I was little but took a break and forgot a lot of the vocab- I still know the basics though), I didn’t think it was worth it to pay 8.99 for a single month and 19.99 (!!!!!) for just three months. So I basically took off one star for the prices and one for the lack of games and “fun aspects.” Lingodeer developers- I love this app! The visuals are really cute, and it does a great job teaching you new words and telling you what you should work on. And I understand that this app needs a profit. But I feel like that high of a price is a bit too much for what this app offers. If you maybe upped the options (or had a base price for downloads- I would totally pay 8.99 upfront in a one-time payment) this app would undoubtedly earn a five star review from me :)
I haven’t signed in but you will know why
by Blubber&fat.com on 2019/10/26 20:00
First things first, I want to learn Swahili, but guess what? It doesn’t have it. I want to give it five stars but I can’t. Please just get more languages. I heard from other people it’s a really good app, I believe my friends but for now I’ll use Duolingo to learn Swahili. Pleeeeeeeeeeeezzzzzzzzzzz get more languages I want to learn Swahili. So fix this problem really quick and I’ll get this “im pretty sure it’s a good language learner app” Sooooo yeah
Problems
by Natbrat32 on 2019/10/26 09:45
I paid for a premium account that wouldn’t link up to the app. After reaching out twice to the company the messages refused to sync up. Which is an app problem not a service problem. I’m deeply sad cause the learning curve on this was exceptional. But trying to get it to work on my phone became another story completely. I have yet to hear back from the company. And have now wasted money on not being able to learn the language I was hoping for.
Keeps getting stuck on the “buy subscription” ad
by Ejhwolb on 2019/10/25 14:58
This won’t let me move past the first lesson. All it will do is show me the buy subscription ad. I hit X and try to play the lesson again but it just keeping popping the ad back up. Please fix
I love it!!
by Laysha Gutierrez on 2019/10/23 23:35
What I learned on another app in Korean in a week I mastered in a day!! This is the best app I know for learning a new language. It jumps right into easy basic phrases. I’m so glad a friend of mine recommended it. Now, I recommend it to you.
Amazing App, Feature Request
by AvantAveGarde on 2019/10/23 21:43
Really good app and worth the subscription price, I have a feature request for the Japanese part of the App. During the review vocabulary, could you add in a feature for just the Kanji review, so you don’t have to go through vocabs asking you to write in hiragana, tap on the correct picture? Would help a lot so I don’t have to use a separate app as flash cards.
Cute and helpful
by Staellum on 2019/10/23 02:02
This app is super cute and keeps me motivated to keep learning, it also explains everything very carefully and has easy to access information all the time through the modules.
very good app
by 279abgg on 2019/10/23 00:26
very good app
Best Asian language fluency app 🤩
by Paradise 🛴 on 2019/10/21 01:26
I have had this app for over a year now, and I cannot begin to express my satisfaction with this app. Yes, I have had my bad days to months when it comes to getting up and doing a lesson. nonetheless I am significantly more fluent in Korean then I was a year ago. it is very hard at least in the United States to find a reliable app or site to learn an Asian language. But Lingodeer came in with greatly prepared lessons and their sister app LingDeer+ to help all of us aspiring to learn an Asian language. Such a great app definitely worth the premium payments, love it!
I love the app overall, but I wish I can learn for free
by ccrocks.epic on 2019/10/20 17:15
I love the way it teaches me stuff, but when I got to my 3rd lesson, I had to get a membership in order to continue. Is there a way where I can continue my studies, but for free?
Nice but....
by why.maia on 2019/10/17 18:33
The app is absolutely phenomenal! Only thing that makes me sad about is that you have to pay in order to unlock other levels of it. *cries in broke*
Best Resource I've Tried
by Claire-23 on 2019/10/17 17:28
I've been trying to learn Korean for a little over a year and this is by far the best resource I've found. I have used Duolingo as well as 2 physical textbooks and none have geigen me the satisfaction that LingoDeer has. The focus on grammar from the beginning of the course helps immensely later on. Supplementing in-app lessons with LingoDeer+ helps so much with vocabulary (usually what I struggle with the most.) I bought a full year subscription and it is much cheaper than many other resources for the quality of lesson LingoDeer provides. I enjoy using this app so much that I have started using it to help with the German that I learn in school. The best indicator I can give that this is truly a fun and easy way to learn a new language, is that when I get notifications asking me to practice, I don't just get annoyed and dismiss it; I practice.
Please Add Thai
by My burr on 2019/10/13 08:16
Hello, LingoDeer! I heard of your app and I think it’s amazing that you specialize on Asian languages! I started learning Japanese this year so I’ll definitely use your app to learn! :D My little sister has been wanting to learn Thai but there are very few resources to help her. I really want to help her learn but I can’t find resources. I hope you consider adding Thai to the languages taught on your app!

Additional Languages

I hope they add more languages like Danish since it have Russian which is great!
Great App - Suggestion
by dr jstud on 2019/10/04 21:07
Great app. Love it. One learning task that I would like is a typing task that let's you see the English sentence, the Korean sentence/words, and then have the task of typing the Korean sentence out while being able to see the Korean words. There is currently the opportunity to see the English sentence, hear the Korean sentence, see Korean words, but not to see the Korean words and be able to type the Korean sentence. This makes the typing part much harder to do as I'm trying to remember korean words that I don't really know how to spell consistently. The typing part really cements what I learned into my head.
Great for quick lessons on your phone!
by NikosaurusRex on 2019/10/03 19:20
Great app. Love using it before bed or on my lunch break to prepare for my trip to Japan next April
Felt like a fish out of water
by katspfnix on 2019/10/02 03:38
I was referred to the application with the claim I wouldn’t need a text book to use the application. Unfortunately this was not my experience. I’ll keep trying for a few days but unfortunately since I’m unable to afford classes and text books I probably won’t be able to make much use of this application. My advice to the developers is teach people how to use the keyboard of said language before you make people use one, not everyone has seen a Japanese keyboard before. I’m entirely frustrated and burnt out pressing buttons trying to make stuff into other stuff I had no idea where to start and this application did a terrible job of preparing me for that particular lesson. I’ll have to try YouTube I guess but in my opinion with a language learning app that should be an included lesson.
No longer free
by cschilb5 on 2019/10/01 11:09
Heads up guys, it’s not free anymore. Time to move on. Just to dang expensive too. Nothing I hate more than something that was once free but is now hidden behind a paywall. So sad. Also not to mention, it is so darn expensive. Considering it used to be free this is just so sad. 🙁
For pay is gay
by Billikesfreejuice on 2019/09/28 18:23
This app would overtake Duolingo as the premier language learning app globally if pay for content was removed. The millions of additional users who would join if this app were completely free would easily supplement the income if brief ads were used to generate income the same way Duolingo does. By making the vast majority of content pay for use only you are cutting your user base by 90%+.
Disappointing
by paintingducks on 2019/09/28 17:32
I've been using LingoDeer for a long time. I love it and it's been extremely helpful in learning a new language. However, I'm disappointed in the execution of the paid service. I understand that the developers and teachers need to make money, but I personally think it's unfair to cut off all the lessons completely from those who can't pay. If anything, keep the basic lessons free and include extras in the subscription. The sudden change without prior notice is disappointing as well. I've invested so much time into using this app only to be kicked off and now I can't use it anymore. It's unfortunate. I will have to go back to Duolingo
Much better than Duolingo for Korean
by Nattyface on 2019/09/28 11:42
Duolingo got me much farther in my journey learning Korean than trying to figure it out on my own, I’ll give it that, and I still use it for Spanish. However, in two days of using LingoDeer I am actually starting to understand why the grammar is the way that it is and what the structure of the language is rather than just going through the motions of repetition and struggling through sentences because I could not figure out why the structure was changing. Duolingo is good at memorizing, bad at understanding what or why you’re learning what you’re learning. I am excited to continue with LingoDeer and get farther in my quest to learn Korean. Thank you so much for this app developers!
THANK YOU
by Jmoid on 2019/09/28 01:08
I’ve always wanted to learn French, but didn’t want to pay for an app, and LingoDeer come along! It’s been a dream of mine to always learn French! THANK YOU FOR LETTING ME FINALLY HAVE MY DREAM COME TRUE! BEST APP
Garbage App
by Guy123456293 on 2019/09/26 10:45
Go to another app this one is absolute garbage
Can’t go to next lesson
by SavyMansi on 2019/09/25 20:41
I haven't purchased a subscription, but every time I try to move on to my next lesson I keep getting the the Autumn sale pop up. When I close it and click on the lesson agin, it pops back up! Uggghhh😔 Any help please? Thank you! Savannah
Best app to learn a new language
by The_Erdster on 2019/09/23 23:27
If you want to learn a new language, this app is for you. This makes it easy and fun.
Very Effective
by Irrn1 on 2019/09/19 02:00
I don’t usually write reviews for apps, but this is so far the best learning tool I have came across. The way they teach your desired language helps you memorize each word you come across on the app and teaches you the pronunciation of the language. The price is quite high for subscriptions, but is well worth it.
I can’t move on...?
by jg's_angel on 2019/09/18 02:34
I have the monthly subscription but it is not letting me move onto the next lesson??? The buy a subscription page keeps popping up, why...? I have already paid and should be able to go to the next lesson. What gives??!!
OMGGGG😍😍😍
by exu pj pig iv on 2019/09/18 01:07
The best language learning app I learned Korean in in less than two weeks AMAZING who ever made this MAKE MORE PLEASE
Great and Effective Teaching, but..
by licylm on 2019/09/16 05:23
The app is great for learning languages.. but once you make it past the first few lessons, it forces you to pay. I don’t have the money for this app, which I why uninstalled it. I think that it’s a bit unfair to only offer a few lessons and it’d be more reasonable to make lessons free, but limit them and allow more features to premium users. Back to duolingo I go ..
Good level of repetition
by jemckee on 2019/09/14 13:40
The design with built in help, creates a low pressure confidence building program. Thank you very much.
Study Abroad
by HanPancho on 2019/09/13 13:01
My husband is studying abroad, so right now we live in Asia. We have two kids so I stay home with them while he studies the language, but I desperately wanted to learn as well. I’ve been using this app in my free time and I LOVE it. I’ve learned so much and am able to use new words daily.
Best for Japanese compared to competition!
by TheGeoker on 2019/09/13 02:24
I am learning Japanese and out of all the apps i’ve tried, this one is by far has the best explanation, pacing, and interest. I’ve tried Busuu, Memrise, and Duolingo. Each has great features, but they sometimes don’t explain well or advance too fast. Duolingo is for sure the funnest, but I am only learning to read sentences and not reciprocating. I can read tons of sentences, but speaking it after using it for 100+ streak, i can slowly think and murmur sentences. Definitely is great for repetition and learning characters, but it doesnt have the explanation as well lingodeer. Busuu, is great in the beginning showing mnemonic devices to remember words, but there theres a huge jump after a dozen lessons. Also, the repetitions on words is not great at all, im on the next lesson after 8 minutes and I’m jumping to new things when i havent absorbed what i learned just minutes ago. The pace is horrible. The feature to speak with other in the community is great though. Memrise, is probably the second funnest and may possible be the second best before lingodeer, but there is also a jump to harder stuff and not know what to do. It’s less explanation and a lot of go go go. Pinsleur, i currently am using with lingodeer. I can see pinsluer being great for speaking only. Having to exercise your mouth sentences over and over again is great, and being able to do it whole your driving. What it lacks is reading. You will never know characters with pinsleur. LingoDeer wins in detailed explanation and reptition. Its really great.
Professor Recommended
by K. Pitts on 2019/09/12 14:11
I got this app for my college Korean class after my professor requested that we use it as extra practice outside of class and I really love it! It’s a big help in memorizing phrases and pronunciation. (:
I LOVE THIS LANGUAGE LEARNER! Except...
by xXWolfygiRl on 2019/09/11 02:25
Ok, lemme get to the point. is app is FANTASTIC and I can tell the developers really worked hard on this but sadly I think there should be one change. I think that some of these things I’m not sure I really want to learn and others I do. Unfortunately, It doesn’t let me choose the things I want to learn, and it does say I can’t go head unless I buy the premium. However, even though this is not at a high price, I don’t like premiums. I think if you want to earn money, it should be permanent. Otherwise, I think you should let people choose what they want to learn and maybe not have to go through all the lessons they don’t want to know about or learn. For example, I want to learn to speak Japanese. This app really inspires me to learn Japanese, except I don’t want to learn how to write it. Only speak it. And the worst part about it is that the writing lesson is pretty long (not saying you need to fix that, because all the knowledge is necessary) and I just want to skip it without the premium. But don’t get me wrong, this app is still amazing. But I would just really appreciate it if you made that one little change. :) Thank you!
Good learning app
by Caa23458! on 2019/09/10 18:48
I love this app. There is hardly any good Japanese language learning apps and this is one that actually works. They have everything correct and teach correctly. I definitely recommend this app.
Great App
by Oneboi on 2019/09/09 20:06
Very easy to use. Just started with it last week and already am learning grammar/sentence structure. Also love the audio, very clear, easy to understand speaker and easy to repeat. Thank you for a great app!
Love it But...
by TaeShook on 2019/09/08 23:53
Why does it have to cost money on an iOS but not on an android? I recently upgraded my phone to an iPhone and it costs money which is really upsetting because I still want to learn my course without money. It was the best learning app out there for me but this change makes it an app just like the others😔
love this app
by annahilton on 2019/09/08 21:01
I used this app before taking my Japanese class in college and it’s really helped me get ahead and thoroughly understand the language!
Amazing tools and fun to learn
by TechTy on 2019/09/07 18:31
I have tried many programs before and this one is well done especially for learning Chinese. I recommend it.
Error
by kjjah on 2019/09/05 13:40
I really annoyed because i did the payment this app for 1 year, it took me 41$ and i did payment success. But after that when i comeback and study it obliged me payment again. What happen??
Extremely Expensive
by Joe Volk on 2019/09/04 06:15
$90 for a lifetime membership for this app - yikes
Very helpful for Vietnamese!
by JotunSingh on 2019/09/03 18:18
I came across LingoDeer after being disappointed with DuoLingo’s Vietnamese lessons. So far, it works very well! I like how it’s very focused on pronunciation since that’s possibly the hardest part of Vietnamese. My one complaint is that it hasn’t gone into too much detail on pronouns yet, but maybe that’s just because I haven’t gotten very far in the lessons yet. Other than that, I’m pretty satisfied with it!
Amazing! Also, something I’d like to be fixed.
by I hate flappy bird!😠😡 on 2018/07/31 16:28
This is hands down the best app I’ve used for learning a different language, Japanese specifically. I could go on and on, it’s just incredible. I tried learning Japanese last summer and failed miserably, nothing I used helped work for me. This summer I tried going back to it, and I used Duolingo at first. It was good, but I wish I had used this app sooner! Someone recommended it to me and I fell in love instantly! It makes it so much fun, and maybe it’s since I’m just passionate about learning the language, but still! It has all these fun lessons and games, and makes everything very interesting. I’ve only used it for Japanese, but from the rest of the reviews, I can see it’s an amazing app all in all, no matter what you want to learn! I highly, HIGHLY recommend this app for anyone wanting to learn a new Asian language! And I want to give a big thanks to the developers! You guys have done an amazing job! On another note, I’d like to say that there’s something I’ve run into recently that’s kind of bugging me. During the Pop Quizzes, sometimes if I write the answer wrong and try to erase it, the letters will disappear and I can’t finish the answer. Like, if I write “わした” instead of “わたし” and I go to erase “し“ and “た”, one of the two wont go back to my keyboard, so I can’t write it down correctly. I hope you guys look into it because it’s becoming a bit annoying! Thank you! ^_^
WORTH IT!! 💖
by Purrrple Art03 on 2019/07/06 08:33
Honestly, I’ve been learning Korean for a few months through websites and videos, but because the videos and websites didn’t go together, I wasn’t really getting things. I didn’t have a system or structure to learn things in since I didn’t know where to look and practically watched/read anything I could find. I was starting to get unmotivated about studying until I asked a friend of mine what she used to study Korean and she recommended me this app. I remember hearing about LingoDeer before through my fav polyglot YouTuber, iKenna, so I thought “why not check it out?”. BEST DECISION EVER. I tried the first few lessons for free and although it was pretty easy, I wanted more. I skimmed over the lesson topics and checked the membership prices to debate if I should buy it. Eventually I caved in because 1)year long membership was on sale 2) if my favorite polyglot YouTuber used it and recommends it, I trust him. And 3) My friend can hold an intermediate level convo in Korean now. I can tell you for sure that after I got the membership and unlocked all the lessons, I have been glued to this app. I never feel unmotivated to log in each day and learn, I actually get excited and I love how there’s stories at the end of each lesson! I can spend as little as 5/10 minutes on this app to a whole hour! So if you’re wondering if it’s worth it... it is!! Go buy yourself a membership!! Now!!!
One of the best out there!!
by The Slicer's game on 2018/12/22 02:07
This app is really amazing! This app has multiple teachers that help with learning a language. As of right now I am learning Japanese and Korean and I couldn’t ask for a better app. There are several different features I enjoy, such as the knowledge cards which help break down the grammar learned in different lessons to the vocabulary quizzes so I can quiz myself on the vocabulary that I don’t know or need to re-study. A feature I enjoyed that is specifically for the Japanese language is that there is a section where you can just practice and study the kanji independently from the sentences and grammar which is one of my favorite parts. Another feature is that I can change how i can change the difficulty. For example when I have a question on how to read or pronounce I can switch from native Japanese (the characters and kanji together as they would be in a newspaper) to furugana (kanji with hiragana above it), hiragana completely (no kanji) or romaji (Latin letters only of Japanese sounds). Overall I have been with LingoDeer for over a year and I have a come to realize how much I enjoyed this app! And with every update comes a new excitement over with what LingoDeer has waiting for me to try out next!!
There’s potential but the paywall is way too early
by DefineNormal on 2019/06/23 07:55
I understand the need for paywalls, particularly in sophisticated apps where there’s a lot of hard work put in by the developers. But there’s also a need to balance that with giving the customer enough to tell whether the product is worth their hard earned dollars. The two free lessons are the alphabet and nationality-most people who’ve tried to pick up the language for an hour or two on any other system have covered this and there’s so little vocab at this point that the answers are obvious. And the alphabet is a poor indicator of what the rest of the system will look like regardless. So the system looks like it might be good but who’s to say since I can’t test it against material I’m not already familiar with? Even expanding this to an additional lesson or two (the determiner/possessive) would greatly increase the ability to get a sense for the flow of lessons in this app—the very next lesson seems to have a different section “learning tips” that I didn’t try in the previous one. Will every lesson be in a completely different format from the previous one? At this point I can’t tell. Given there seem to be some sixty or seventy lessons in the first level of the language, I highly doubt giving free users the next lesson or two will cut into profits and it certainly would help people like me who are on the fence determine if it’s the right system for them.
Good App, one problem...
by Mateo3019 on 2018/09/11 02:20
I have been using this app since I got it 16 days ago. I have been using it to learn Japanese. It's all good, but the save feature is TRASH. I wanted to keep learning on my chrome book, so I got the app for it, I tried logging in, and all my progress was GONE. ALL of it. Confused, I went back to my phone to find a solution to this problem. I saw a button that said "Progress Backup" so I clicked that, I thought I was good to go. So I logged out and back in. Still nothing has changed. Getting frustrated, I tried to find something that would load my data. I finally found a button on the settings called "Recover Progress", So I clicked THAT, still nothing. This was getting nowhere, so I clicked "Recover Progress" on both devices, STILL nothing. Then I thought, "Maybe it wouldn't work if I was logged in to my account already". So I signed out of my phone, remembering to save my progress before I did that. Again, nothing changed. I decided to give up on trying it on computer, since it obviously will not cooperate. I signed back in to my phone, and all of my progress was GONE. I was downright MAD. How could such a great app like this have such a terrible save and load system? It's downright TRASH and I HATE IT. I've been trying everything to get my progress back. What should I do? Please help :c
我喜欢这个应用程序!
by kurotsukikage on 2019/05/30 05:23
^^ That says I love this app! I’ll admit I had to look up how to write ‘app’ in Chinese but hey, the rest I was able to do after only the first 3-4 lessons of Chinese. I took Japanese in college for 2 years and picked it up fairly quick but this app helped keep me going and practicing after graduating. I decided to use it for learning Russian too, and it’s been very useful with clear pronunciation that you can listen to at actual full speed or a little slower if you need. Finally, I decided to give Chinese a go because I’ve wanted to learn it forEVER and I thought how hard could this be I already took Japanese for 2 years. Well, I’ll tell you, it’s VERY difficult to just ‘start’ learning Chinese because anywhere I looked didn’t explain pinyin OR tone! Crazy that I’d never been able to find good explanations for those BASIC parts of learning Chinese. THAT IS, until this app came along. LingoDeer is worth every penny and more, it is an essential tool in the shed for anyone learning any of their offered languages, in or out of a classroom. I can’t give it a more glowing review. If you’re doubtful, please just do it! You will love it. Read the other reviews, they aren’t lying!!! Thank you developers!!
Love It But...
by RainyCain on 2018/06/02 23:06
I love this app with all my heart. It is so good at teaching me Japanese and this is the only app that has the right teaching style for me. It’s the perfect blend of fun and structured learning, and let alone it is all completely free besides a few in app purchases. This has been helping me study Japanese way better than any book can, however recently this app has been really laggy and hasn’t been responding up to par. My progress bar isn’t loading and progressing at the same speed as I am learning and it just stays empty, my achievements are screwed up (I have been at level 10 for a couple days and still haven’t gotten my achievement for reaching level 10 yet) and usually when achievements do come they are always a day late, I get random achievements every so often like “congrats on reaching 5 hours of study time” even though at the point I was already at 8 hours, and recently my review section has only been including 5 lessons instead of the 10+ I have completed and need to review for. Like I said, this app is the best thing that has come into my life, but I can’t rate it the 5 stars it deserves unless these bugs are fixed. I will still thank all the developers for putting their time and money to make this app for all those who want to learn its selection of languages.
I LOVE THIS LANGUAGE LEARNER! Except...
by xXWolfygiRl on 2019/09/11 02:25
Ok, lemme get to the point. is app is FANTASTIC and I can tell the developers really worked hard on this but sadly I think there should be one change. I think that some of these things I’m not sure I really want to learn and others I do. Unfortunately, It doesn’t let me choose the things I want to learn, and it does say I can’t go head unless I buy the premium. However, even though this is not at a high price, I don’t like premiums. I think if you want to earn money, it should be permanent. Otherwise, I think you should let people choose what they want to learn and maybe not have to go through all the lessons they don’t want to know about or learn. For example, I want to learn to speak Japanese. This app really inspires me to learn Japanese, except I don’t want to learn how to write it. Only speak it. And the worst part about it is that the writing lesson is pretty long (not saying you need to fix that, because all the knowledge is necessary) and I just want to skip it without the premium. But don’t get me wrong, this app is still amazing. But I would just really appreciate it if you made that one little change. :) Thank you!
Upset
by XkitcatX on 2019/02/15 05:19
I at first had a app called drops that I used to try and help me learn korean. It wasn’t working that well for me so I wanted to try and find another app. I happened to stumble upon this and at first thought it was the best thing ever. From having a almost 5 star review, and TONS of good reviews I wanted to try it out. I read so many of the reviews and almost all of them talked about how this was the best app ever and that it was “free.” Do literally yesterday I downloaded the app and did the first lesson of nationality. (I already know the korean alphabet). Just from using this app for such a small time I loved it. It had things that seemed like would really help me such as the tips which I found VERY helpful. Then here I am on the last part of nationality doing the story. I did everything and tried to move on to the next lesson. When I did I got worried because it kept of saying that you needed pro. I thought that maybe it was just that lesson or that maybe I hadn't finished the lesson before. Nope checked every lesson after that one and all of them said pro and then I knew I did the lesson before right. It has me so mad because I really can’t afford the amount of money for one month. I saw every where of people saying this app was free. You get literally maybe 2 lessons before you have to pay. I honestly really loved this app but I’m now really upset to know a big chance for me went down the drain.
best learning app ever!
by impressed girl with ADD on 2018/03/05 06:50
i’m someone who struggles with a learning disability making it harder for me to learn languages. which is a real shame because i really like k pop. i sort of started to teach myself on my own with the songs but i couldn’t read actual korean, which is sort of needed in the community. Out of all the apps i’ve tried, this one works REALLY well! they’re very rewarding and seeing the sad little deer makes you wanna try harder when you fail! not to mention the overall design is easy on the eyes! and there’s videos to help you read and speak the language!! duolingo didn’t have that. like tf how am i supposed to know if i’m saying it correctly?? i just wish there was a way they could tell you if your pronunciation is close to the other persons, instead of comparing and contrasting and hearing your own voice over and over again. i know it’s hard to program these things, but it would be sooo beneficial in the end. i stumbled upon this app on a whim and i’m glad i did! i never wanna use another app again for korean TT^TT
Amazing but huge problem
by Confused by how on 2018/12/18 09:25
I’ve been using LingoDeer to learn korean, and honestly it’s amazing not only does it teach grammar rules it keeps you kind of updated on the current uses and which generation more associates with it. Although there is one problem, I was in the middle of learning verbs when the new update came out... I was fine with it so I updated it then when it finally finished and I tried to go back to studying all my progress was lost, it just a blank screen I tried switching languages to see if it was just a problem with the first screen but no, there were no lessons at all. I then tried to reset my device over and over it still didn’t work, finally I decided to log out and try logging back in. They kept saying there’s an error so I should try back another time, I was deflated and left it for a while before coming in again to try once again the app wasn’t working. In the end I was just going to make a new account and just test out all the topics so I could get back to where I was, as I made the new account and selected my language, the lessons still did not show. I’m deflated on what to do and I hope LingoDeer can fix this problem because no one knows what to do.
Better Than Duo for Chinese Beginners
by roscomcmillan on 2019/01/06 17:00
This is a great app for complete beginners studying the languages it offers, because this app is clean, informative, and has no health bar or penalty for mistakes. Duolingo is a great app I use for Spanish, but throws you into Chinese without much information and you get frustrated quickly when your health bar is always empty. Lingodeer has been far more enjoyable in learning Chinese. No health bar and far more information and instruction, both before you start a lesson and during the lesson on selecting sounds and word meanings. You can choose how the app looks and what words/symbols you want displayed during lessons. The drawing characters is a little unresponsive sometimes, but that’s a very minor detail and surely will be improved as the app gets better. Also, this is all free. Edit: Sometimes the story classes don’t end cleanly and just show a blank question at the end, but it’s a minor problem I’ve come across. Still an amazing app and a big thank you to everyone involved with it!
BEST language learning program yet!
by darkequeen on 2018/12/23 15:54
I am a language enthusiast and have tried many different programs over the years but none have come close to LingoDeer. My biggest complaint with most language learning programs is that there are no explanations provided for rules or grammar. LingoDeer in stark contrast provides wonderful grammar lessons in easy to comprehend sheets. For English speakers, there are quite a few languages to choose from (though, as of now, not as many as some other applications) and the exercises are quick, fun, and, most importantly, effective! The review quizzes are a wonderful feature providing a quick and easy way to make sure you’re retaining everything you’ve learned so far. The stories and social features are a fun and unique addition that also add to your understanding of the language. I also feel that the app is very accessible in the free version and the $30 lifetime payment is very reasonable compared to the full versions of other apps with costly subscriptions which add up over time. The only thing I would suggest for the LingoDeer team is the addition of a setting where you can turn off strictly listening exercises, since users not always using the app in situations where they can play/hear phone audio. Overall, this is the best language app I have come across from Duolingo to Rosetta Stone and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this for anyone who is serious about language learning and development. Be a Deer and give this a try yourself! :)
Best App for Korean 💕
by Wuzzlr on 2018/01/21 21:40
I have other apps like Drops or Memrise that are good for vocab words but they struggle when it comes to sentences and they still have a hard time using only 한글, which is essential for learning correctly. With LingoDeer, however, the romanizations were gone right away(you can choose to turn them on if you wish), and I could test up to the level where I was at in my learning! I can always go back and complete any of the old levels for review, and the tips before each of the lessons are really helpful. My other favorite thing is the sentences, they are broken down easily, you can listen and look at each individual word, and you have listening options for voice speed. Plus, the voice sounds perfectly natural and very clear. This app is really helpful if you want to get a good grasp of 한글 and Korean sentence structure! I’ve literally told all my friends who are learning Korean, Chinese, or Japanese to get this app because I love it!! Thank you!!
Very good but room for improvement
by Abikjn on 2018/12/11 03:42
I’m at about 40% through level 1 and the glitches are getting pretty annoying. There is a feedback window, but for all of the times when I have reported incorrect scoring or problems with the user interface I’ve never gotten an acknowledgment or any indication that anyone is reading my messages. On DuoLingo I regularly received messages back either telling me that my response is now included as a correct response, or a reason why it is considered incorrect. Duolingo did not have any of the wonky interface issues that this app has. Sometimes it’s impossible to place a tile where it needs to go so I just give up and submit an incorrect response just to move on. Or you need three tiles to form the correct answer and there are only two spaces. Many other instances that are frustrating. Finally, I usually study at night and I like the dark background, until I finish a lesson and get sent back to the screens with blinding white backgrounds - ouch!!! All that said, it is a very good learning tool if the UI were better it would be a 5!
Amazing App!! I definitely recommend
by Handle-less on 2018/03/09 04:56
Anyone learning a major Asian language should be using this app. First of all, it’s free and there’s no in app purchases.. so that’s like enough said. I’m learning Korean and I have to say I haven’t found a lot of apps that teach grammar and sentence structure as well as this one. It also adds in vocab with every lesson. The pace doesn’t start off too hard, and stays pretty consistent, so you aren’t giving up a few days in. It’s light practice, easily explained, and very aesthetically fun. Would work for kids or adults. I’ve only been using it for about 5-10 min a day, skipping a couple days, for about 2 months and I’m about 70% done with the course, so I feel good about myself. And there are optional review sessions as well (the fact that review is optional is actually really nice compared to some other apps) so when I do finish the app, I’ll just go back and review everything... for the rest of my life probably. 10/10 would recommend 👍🏼
I don’t like it as much as I thought
by squintr on 2019/01/09 15:46
Kind of regretting my purchase of a yearly subscription. Things are things I do like: the human audio recordings (instead of synthesized speech) recording, the ability to record the user’s speech, dark mode, the easy-to-understand interface, slowed audio, fairly good graphics. These things make the app better in some ways than Duolingo. The only problem I’ve found so far, and this is a big one, is that LingoDeer expects you to know many things that it hasn’t taught you, such as when you are trying to complete the Reading and Speaking parts of the Story sections at the end of the lessons. The questions and answers always have so many words/particles that weren’t covered during the course of the preceding lessons. This should be remedied as soon as possible. Even Duolingo gets this right. Why would you require a user to know something when you haven’t covered it? It makes no sense. There are some other things I would like to see added, such as the ability to choose male audio, and the ability to save your recorded videos without having to record your screen as a workaround.
A great app for learning some languages
by Hate chick lover on 2019/08/07 01:31
This app is awesome! I'm using this to begin my journey with German and I definitely think it's worth what I'm paying for it. It gives thorough grammar notes at the beginning of each lesson and covers some good topics while providing great vocabulary. I'm not very far in the app since I want to take my time (plus I'm a lazy learner), but I like it and depend on it. I'm hoping to become at least conversationally fluent in german within 8 months and I think this will lead great into my next method of learning (Assimil). The only downside I've noted so far is the lack of variety this app has in choosing your language, but it's still pretty young and definitely much better than duolingo mobile. Oh, and another thing is I'd like to have the option to type in my answers instead of having to click the letters every time so I can memorize the words better and type faster, since each lesson takes awhile to get through.
I don’t approve of the membership system
by abby 🗿 on 2018/12/06 02:57
This really is a great app, at least for learning Korean. Although I could already read 한글 coming into the app, a brief skim of the alphabet explanation revealed that it was far more in depth than any other app I’ve tried. I love the way the lessons are set up, and I especially love the option to disable romanization, since that usually hinders me rather than helping. The videos are great too, since they demonstrate sentence fluency while speaking. My only issue is the paid membership aspect. I understand that the developers need money, and I love the lack of ads, but I don’t like the idea that my progress could be halted when I reach lessons that are exclusive to premium members. It just doesn’t seem fair. Instead, couldn’t the developers make in-app purchases for freezing streaks/buying cute outfits for the deer like Duolingo does? It would just be nice to have access to the full curriculum without paying for it, as I happen to be broke and unable to become a premium member.
excellent beginning language app
by b737flygirl on 2018/05/08 17:17
Traveling a lot to Asia encouraged me to start learning Japanese. I have been thoroughly enjoying this app for a few months and am done with 56% of the Japanese lessons. (I hope more lessons will be added in the near future.) I like the fact that there is a Test Out mode because it forces me to make sure I know the previous lessons well enough to continue on to more lessons. I began with practically no knowledge of Japanese and feel I have progressed very well and can pick up words and sentences when I listen to the native speakers conversing with each other. I have just started to play around with Mandarin and am learning quickly. I like that this program teaches how to write characters since it is a good reinforcement tool. I can foresee continuing from here onwards (along with continuing Japanese.) I do see myself completing Japanese (and eventually Mandarin) since I am still having fun and still think Lingodeer is a very useful learning tool.
85 days into my streak and still going
by Palmena on 2018/12/31 21:17
This language learning app is amazing. The learning tips section, featured at the beginning of every section, is very useful and comprehensive. Duolingo has something similar but that can only be accessed on the website itself, not the app. The pace of learning is really nice and bite-sized so I don’t feel overwhelmed. The fact that it teaches grammar as well as vocabulary simultaneously is great. I love the reading comprehension questions, I love the matching and I love that is focuses on speaking practice as well. When it comes to learning a language, especially an Asian one, you must also learn how to change your thinking so that you can pick up this language better/ more naturally. I think this app achieves that. Personally I have not noticed any glitches, but even if there are some it doesn’t diminish the fact that this app has one of the best teaching styles out there for learning an Asian language.
I really love the app but bit disappointed
by a laguage learning kid on 2019/07/25 23:27
Hello I’d like to say that I really like this app I had just gotten it yesterday. I’m planning on learning Korean to get my mind off of entering middle school and also because I really love the language. The app over all is good and I like how you are able to do a few lessons before it gives you the option to pay monthly or Annual it is really nice. But I was hopping it was free since I’m a broke kid. But luckily I discussed with my mother and she might allow me to use birthday money that I’m saving up for next year to proceed using this app. Even though I might not be able to continue using this app it was a very nice app while I was using it. I’d like to thank the developers and creators I’d really recommend this app to anyone one who wants to learn some of the languages it gives to learn. But you need to know that it’ll cost money if you want to move on but it is over all very good 👌・ω・.
Love it, but please add better strengthening practice
by Misiaa on 2019/05/13 00:32
Compared to the competition LingoDeer is the best,hands down. However, please consider adding more features. The strengthening aspect of this app is what needs the most work, at the moment I rarely come back to the app because of it. It’s really hard to strengthen specific things (without going back through all the modules to see which you need to study). Why is there no way to see and pick different things like specific grammar points to practice? There is no way to know “what needs strengthening”. You’ve added a review at the end of a class but it does nothing? And usually even if I find the lesson really difficult, the questions are easily guessed so I can get 100%. So you must solve that before adding the features. Please consider improving these aspects, if you do, you could really set a new standard for the industry. Thank you.
Amazing
by Kikaida05 on 2018/12/21 14:33
This is the best app for learning Korean I can find out there. Much much much better than competitors such as Duolingo. Duolingo is not as good because it feels like an aging app that is kind of clunky, has robotic voices for voiceovers, and is very “gamified”, which slows everything down with little cutesy animations and activities that really just slow down my progress. Deer lingo feels way more professional, to the point. I have tried everything, including talk to me in Korean, Korean class 101, but those aren’t as good, because they are like textbook, they are just recorded audio lessons someone made, and not really interactive, so it gets somewhat boring at times. With deer lingo, you are always interacting with challenges, questions you click answers to, and doing activities to learn, which is best way to learn. I really like how it can teach grammar and vocabulary at the same time, and that , since the recent expansion to the program, it has more Korean lessons. It feels like a very dynamic app, that is constantly and recently improving. The free version is great, and the paid one you just pay once for a very low/reasonable fee. Of note, once you pay once for the app, you get the whole program, including all the many languages the app has. I don’t think I have written an app review in a very long time, I just had to give a shout out to this amazing program.
Great so far!
by Hailee D. on 2018/05/29 01:28
I am a beginner in Mandarin. I take a class in high school for mandarin but some aspects (like memorization for example) are too fast while others (grammar and pronunciation) are too slow. This is a very good app if you are learning in a class or even self-studying but need that extra guidance as well as the ability to go at your own pace. It’s good so far! I’m very impressed. I used to used Duolingo but Deerlingo is much more catered to learning Mandarin and these other Asian languages, in my opinion. I might take up Japanese if I can keep up in Mandarin!! Highly suggested on my part. Try it, and if it’s not catered to your learning style, keep looking! Don’t give up on learning a language. That’s the worst mistake a language learner can make. I’ll update on how I like this app in the future. (Also; a suggestion for future updates might be linguistic study to determine the accuracy of a user’s pronunciation when recording.) Thanks!
Love this App
by rjdaws on 2018/07/25 15:26
This program is amazing. I’ve completed Japanese language programs before and honestly didn’t genuine learn the language. They were teaching me parrot tricks and preset dialogue. LingoDeer helped me dream an authentic and pure understanding of the language. I feel like I actually can understand Japanese now rather than just recognize it, if that makes sense. My one complaint is that they do not continue the STORY element of the lessons past the first pets of the program. The stories are fun and honestly a huge help in listening compression. I wish they had stayed through the whole program. I’d be a more confident speaker and better listener if it were there through the whole program. The teaching method of this program has made me confident I can learn other languages as well. I’ve started learning Korean and plan on learning Chinese with this app. This is one of the best language learning programs I’ve ever encountered.
I Love This App!
by ASpoonfulofSUGA on 2019/01/04 19:00
I’ve been using this app for over a year. There are multiple languages to choose from, and part 1 of each language is free to use on LingoDeer. I got through Korean Part 1, which consists of probably about 60-70 lessons, each with 2-4 parts to each lesson. I went through each lesson, and didn’t move on to the next until I felt like knew everything with full confidence. It took me about 48 hours, over the course of a few months to complete Korean Part 1. Part 1 is completely free! It’s the most thorough and detailed Korean learning app I’ve used. It teaches you vocabulary, grammar, sentence structure, etc, and it makes learning fun! I purchased Part 2 and moved on to more advanced learning. I can read korean, speak korean, and have a conversation in Korean thanks to this app. I am not fluent of course, that will take time, but I feel confident when traveling abroad. Thank you LingoDeer!
Handicapped without a membership.
by Lunette Bean on 2018/11/19 02:18
I’m not sure if this is just me. I looked through the reviews and everybody said good things about the in-app purchases; that they weren’t necessary and you could learn without them. I was learning Japanese, I finished “Alphabet” and “Nationality,” the first two lessons. Immediately when I tried to go on to the third it asked me to get a membership. I was confused, I thought this app was supposed to allow me to learn without paying! I tried redoing the previous lesson, and it did nothing. When I clicked on the button that said the lesson was locked it just pulled up the “buy put thing please.” page. I have no intention of spending on this app, but from what I did see it has a nice style and great way of teaching. Im just extremely upset that I was mislead into thinking I could use this app without having to pay. I’d definitely recommend Duolingo over this app; the only purchases are to remove adds. Has anyone else had a similar experience? Why the hell do all the reviews say that I can go through without paying? I’m so confused.
Great! A go to for non-romanized languages
by OceansGal on 2017/10/29 00:24
Duolingo recently released their Korean course, and tbh it was very lackluster I was expecting more. I wanted to learn Korean so I did a bit of searching and came across this wonderful little app! It is perfect for learning Korean, Japanese, or Chinese. It allows you to download the course for offline learning which has to be my favorite part. I love the flashcard options for practicing which is something that Duolingo doesn't have built in. I also like how it gives you learning tips, they help a lot. My only suggestion would be for the Korean course (I'm not sure about the other courses) there should be a section at the beginning that has you write out the letters, they show you the stroke order. They should also have us write out the letters it would be a big help. All in all this is a great app for learning these languages you should give it a try!
I really want to give this five stars, but..
by Heckashrek on 2018/06/29 13:06
Okay, don’t get me wrong. This is by far the best app I’ve used for learning Japanese. Outdoes Duolingo even in terms of lessons and accommodations for different learning styles. However, it gets a little bothersome when I try to input kanji I already know into an answer and it gets marked as incorrect. Why is that? I shouldn’t have to type out “8,000 yen” as completely hiragana for it to be correct when that’s just not realistic, people would either write the number out or use kanji. I’d appreciate it if in another update you would consider including the kanji version for correct answers, especially to consider those who have studied up on their kanji. Also, might I suggest a feedback button within the app so users can quickly suggest to the staff suggestions such as these so we don’t have to write a whole review? That’s one thing that Duolingo does have that this app doesn’t.. Just stuff to consider.
Best App to learn Korean
by WhiteFace on 2017/11/24 13:27
I can’t believe this app is free with no ads. The lessons are good, pretty similar to Duolingo, but the sentences are more accurate and each topic gives you a grammar explanation. Right there, it’s better than Duolingo, but LingoDeer also has reviews specifically for vocabulary and grammar. You can pick and choose what to review. It’s like having your Memrise deck right in the app. This app makes learning simple and fun. You don’t need an app for grammar and another for Flashcards, because this is both. I’ve paid for other apps that do a fraction this one does. Couldn’t be more pleased. I was going to complain that even the higher levels still have the romanization, but then I saw the button on the top right to change your preference. Simple and brilliant. I wish I could type answers without having to select premade tiles, but it’s still great. Thanks a lot!
Why do I have to pay now?
by EddieSconzo on 2019/07/03 16:30
Last year I used this app when I wanted to start learning Japanese and it was amazing the app worked so well and provided so much information and I was extremely happy with it. I learned a lot of Japanese through the app and it helped me out a lot in my college class of Japanese language. I wound up not continuing the language and app and stopped using it so I forgot most of what I knew. Recently I became interested in relearning Japanese again and this was the first app I came to because I knew how fantastic it was. To my biggest disappointment though I find I can’t use anything. All the have is the alphabet and 3 nationality mini lessons that don’t really teach you much. When I used this app last year everything was free I was so surprised when I couldn’t use the same lessons as before. I guess that explains why it won’t allow me to login to my old account on her because it was back when everything was free. This app was great but I’m not paying for something that once was entirely free especially when there’s other apps exactly like this that continue to remain free
Ummmm.....

Okay I love this app. I am currently learning Japanese, Korean, and Chinese. This app is amazing. It definitely challenges you to remember the vocab and grammar structure of the language you are learning. This is good because it helps you learn faster. When I downloaded LingoDeer a year ago, everything was free. For me it is still free. I am already deep into the Japanese, Korean, and Chinese lessons. I recommended this app to my friend and she recently downloaded it. It doesn't let her get past the first few lessons with out a paywall which I don't really understand. Why would this app have no paywall for me but have a paywall for my friend? Don't get me wrong, I am extremely grateful that this app doesn't force me to get a paywall. I'm just confused as to why my friend has to pay? Once I get a good job I'd like to support the creators, but I'm still quite confused about this situation.

This app is great, I continued my Korean lessons with LingoDeer and for some reason this app helped me remember things/words/concepts that normally I wouldn’t remember with other learning apps (also explains in a simple way, so when I read I understand immediately and don’t have to spend time figuring out what a definition means). But what disappointed me was when I was actually happy to continue learning a language I’ve been trying to learn for the past two years, I clicked a lesson and suddenly the pro thing appears and then I knew I never had a chance to learn Korean easily because I don’t have any money to pay for memberships, especially now that I’m struggling financially. I erased the app after this... The app is absolutely amazing and I understand that the devs use the money for our benefit, but learning Korean without cost was the only way I could use it, now I can’t. [or idk, maybe I’ll think about]. But I hope the people that use the app can learn their desired language easily, and that the app can continue to improve.
Best Resource I've Tried
by Claire-23 on 2019/10/17 17:28
I've been trying to learn Korean for a little over a year and this is by far the best resource I've found. I have used Duolingo as well as 2 physical textbooks and none have geigen me the satisfaction that LingoDeer has. The focus on grammar from the beginning of the course helps immensely later on. Supplementing in-app lessons with LingoDeer+ helps so much with vocabulary (usually what I struggle with the most.) I bought a full year subscription and it is much cheaper than many other resources for the quality of lesson LingoDeer provides. I enjoy using this app so much that I have started using it to help with the German that I learn in school. The best indicator I can give that this is truly a fun and easy way to learn a new language, is that when I get notifications asking me to practice, I don't just get annoyed and dismiss it; I practice.
New Subscription
by Kitty5252525 on 2019/11/18 03:41
I was able to access most of the lessons in the app previously, but now I can only access the first lesson and have to pay after that. I don’t have the money to spend on a subscription to learn languages, so I no longer use this app. I enjoyed it before the subscription came about, the lessons were nice, but it could have used a list of all Vocab and grammar learned (cause some of the vocabulary wasn’t on the list). I, as well as many of my fellow Korean learners, are no longer able to use this app due to the expensive subscription. I would have at least liked a notice before the transition, so I would know in advance. It just kind of felt like a slap in the face to anyone who wants to learn languages but doesn’t have money for traditional classes. People go to apps and online resources to learn because often times there is no where else to look for the knowledge. If you are willing to pay for it I would say go for it, but find another app if you’re looking for a free service.
The best app for languages
by The best player on this game on 2018/03/04 15:22
When I tell you this is the best app for learning Chinese, Japanese, and Korean, I mean it. I learned basic Japanese a long time ago and even have a book that wasn’t as good as this app! It is also very accurate mostly for all the lessons I’ve done so far. I live in China now and I use this app’s survival Chinese all the time and it has been a main way for me to communicate with other Chinese so they can understand what I want to say lol! I now know my fruits and meats from practicing this app as well so I can understand what I’m reading on menus. I’m definitely going to learn Korean after I finish the Japanese and Chinese lessons because this app is giving you so much knowledge for so little and really teaches these languages in an effective way. Lingodeer has saved my life and educated me on what I need to know. Thank you so much for making this app!
Excellent for learning, but the app has some bugs
by DorothyGunn on 2019/05/29 02:35
As far as the curriculum goes, this app has been incredibly effective at teaching me Japanese. I’m learning far more than I have using other apps, and it’s organized in a very intuitive way that really takes the different ways that people learn into account more than any other education app I’ve seen on the market. However, the app itself is really buggy so that’s why I docked a star. I have lingodeer on both my phone and ipad, and when I go to switch to the other device, even though I’m logged into the same account, I have to restore my purchase every time I switch which makes me nervous. The experience bar also isn’t recording correctly for me. I’ve only ever studied Japanese on this app, but somehow I’ve gained 100 exp in learning French. I’ll definitely keep using this product, but I hope these things are patched soon.
Crashing Fixed, and Here We Are Now.
by Okaru45 on 2018/10/29 19:11
So, the crash I issued has been fixed. Thanks for listening to my concerns. Now, moving on to the actual thing, I’d say that this application is fine for those who want to learn the major Asian languages. It may be a Duolingo-esque app such as HelloChinese, but for what it is, it gets the job done. I do have one tiny complaint. During one of the Japanese lessons, you get words for “man” and “woman”, one of which being 男の人 (otokonohito); but it says that these words could be considered offensive. I have one question for that: if it’s supposed to be offensive to some, then why put it in there at all? 男性 (dansei) and 女性 (jyosei) - the words for man and woman respectively - are much better words; and those words are taught on the Japanese course for Drops! If that app can tell you the word for man and woman in a non-offensive way, then there’s some problems; you’re misleading learners at this point. I don’t know if the so called offensive words are still in there, but if they are, then it’s a big issue. Anyways, aside from that, there’s really nothing wrong with this app in general. It works just fine for what it is. Perhaps someday I’ll go over the whole course and give an even better review, but I don’t know when that would be. Update: Seriously? You have to pay for the rest of the lessons? No thanks. Plus the Japanese keyboard did not want to work for this app. ~ Kind Regards, Okaru45
Best language learning resource, and it’s free!
by Soweeee on 2018/08/06 23:17
This is the best resource I’ve found for learning Korean so far, and as far as I can tell, it’s completely free! First of all, it gives you the option to ditch romanization which helps you improve your reading skills. You also have the option to spell out phrases on your keyboard to practice spelling and texting. It’s one thing to visually recognize a word, but it’s another to be able to spell it on your own from memory. Most importantly, every word or phrase you learn you can hear spoken by a native speaker, which is crucial for natural pronunciation. You also can record yourself speaking and play back the recording to critique your pronunciation. Absolutely love this app! Hope you release more soon. I’d be willing to pay for more content or make a donation, because this app is worth it!
Great app! Needs only one adjustment.
by Wolf's Pack on 2018/08/03 15:08
Update 8/3/18:I really love your app! Yet, the more I learn, the harder it is to review. I want to learn the basics and be able to understand and speak this language. Learning hiragana and katakana is a must, but while learning that, it’s not working to include kanji when most your exercises don’t include them. Example: question appears with the multiple hiragana reply, but if I select the wrong ones (or wrong order) the correct answer displays in kanji. How am I suppose to correct my mistake if the program won’t show it to me? Then the review will say a word, which I known the translation to, know how to write it in hiragana and/or katakana, but the only options are kanji. You have a setting that lets me choose hiragana and romanji, yet the kanji still show up. I’m not saying I won’t learn the kanji at some point, but the foundation is more important at this early stage. Please fix this! Original: Was using Duolingo for a long time, and saw someone recommended this app. I’m very impressed, with no real issues so far. Love all the information about the language break down. Makes it easier to understand how to construct a sentence yourself. Only wish there was like a placement test kind of test, so I could skip over what I know. Not a big deal though; I consider it almost like a refresher. Keep up great work!
Stellar!
by Annoyed and slightly angry on 2018/07/17 19:49
Previously I used Duolingo to try to learn Korean but it was difficult to grasp the alphabet properly. Duolingo didn’t have the option to go back and review the alphabet quickly and efficiently. But this app is amazing! Not only does it provide a section to learn the alphabet, but you learn every vowel and consonant WITH the ability to easily review the vocabulary you learned. What really wowed me was that each section comes with “quick tips” that provide a comprehensive lesson on grammar, something that Duolingo tries but doesn’t accomplish well (at the current time I have taken 5 years of german and the german section under Duolingo is my basis for these facts). I also love that I’m not getting hit with ads every five seconds and that this app isn’t focused on getting your money. Overall, cute app, amazing structure, and a very pleased customer.
New favorite app
by n0mad1cwanderer on 2017/10/28 12:59
I love this app! It's my new favorite language app (I also use duolingo and memories). I love that it focuses on Asian languages because many other apps don't do these languages well. I'm using it for Japanese and Korean, and I've found the sequence of lessons to be much more helpful than other apps'. I already know Chinese, but I looked at that too and it looks good. I really like that the Chinese one has a "Survival Chinese" list of vocab/useful phrases for tourists. I'd love to see that in the other two languages as well! The only issue I'm having now is that it doesn't seem to register my streaks properly. I've met the daily goal three days in a row now but it says my streak is zero. Not a big deal at all, but those features do sometimes help motivate me to keep going so I'd like them to work! But again, great job, and thank you for this app!
I’ve tried +20 learning apps and this is #1!
by 김 미나❤️ on 2019/06/24 03:16
I’m someone who loves the idea of learning Korean but when it actually came down to studying Korean as a young adult it was very hard. I always make excuses for having a busy life for the reason why I couldn’t learn Korean but this app take that all away. It makes me really happy to learn while I’m on this app. I enjoyed the free run so much that I purchased a three month subscription but I’m pretty sure after the three months is over I’m going to get a year subscription because there’s so much this app can teach me. I started off on this app and it honestly feels like a game even though I’m learning Korean and the more I learn the more excited I am to continue with this app. Even if it’s only 30 minutes a day (you can do more or less if you want) it’s still amazing!
An app that is better than a teacher!!
by bluedreamsxx on 2019/06/09 00:16
All I want to say is how thankful I’m for having this app! I appreciate all of your hard work making this app and all of its useful updates. Also, I thank you so much for giving me as well as thousand users the chance to experience languages, and for giving us the opportunity to advance our learning using your easy to use, fun, and very educational app. It changed my life and my way of learning since I used it back in 2018 and there’s no other app that helped me advance in Japanese and Korean as this one did!! Another thing I like about your app is that it’s Free, which helped me a lot since I CANNOT afford -currently- paying for books. So thank you again. You are certainly life changers. P.S: my English is not excellent, so please excuse any mistakes of my writing Thank you.
The best learning app I’ve used! Except for one thing
by cassndrak on 2018/11/03 15:57
When I downloaded this I was excited to see if it was different than other learning apps. And it was an amazing choice! There’s something different about LingoDeer that makes it better. I love how when we finish lessons, there’s a story that goes with it. But just one thing, I told my friend about this because we wanted to learn korean together. But she had a problem when she wanted to learn “Determiner”. She wanted to learn the first lesson, but it said that she had to use pro. When she told me at first, I was confused because when I used this, I’ve never had a problem like that. For me, everything was free. But when she used it, she had to use pro. Maybe it’s just a new thing but it would help if you could answer this question for me. :)
An awesome app that is easy to use!
by Obey_FaZe_Barbie on 2019/05/07 03:37
I don’t normally write reviews but I had to write one about LingoDeer! I started learning Korean about 4 months ago on my own with the Talk To Me In Korean workbooks and was struggling to retain what I had learned but I found with the lessons LingoDeer has, that I was able to remember what I learned a lot better and a lot quicker too! Also with LingoDeer, you can go to a specific part of a word and hear how it should be pronounced but with workbooks, you can’t really do that. You can also slow down the audio a bit to hear the pronunciation a bit better. The reviews you can do is also a really good feature because you can do so by either listening to or reading a word/sentence. The only thing I think would be nice is if you could type out the sentence on a keyboard character by character instead of just picking the syllables. Example: for 이 아이는 중국 사람입니다 you would pick each syllable (example: 이 then 아 then 이 and so on until you complete the sentence) instead of writing character by character on a keyboard (example: ㅇ then ㅣ then ㅇ and so on) But other than that I love the app and would definitely recommend this to anyone who is struggling with learning by themselves from a workbook!
LingoDeer is a great supplement to language-learning!
by supermartini on 2019/11/01 15:57
As the title says, this application serves to be a complement or supplement to your language studies. It boasts a wide range of activities, games, and assessments that provide you with multi-faceted approaches to mastering your desired language. The curriculum is provided on a per-level basis, and is hence sufficient for solid ground work in a language (if you are not already self-studying), but as for me I have already taken two (2) years of learning Chinese Mandarin study before coming to LingoDeer. There are things this app has taught me that I haven’t previously known, which excites me to log back in and keep at it. I am currently using it for Japanese, Korean, Russian, Chinese, French, and occasionally Spanish. For best results, I highly recommend using this simply as a supplement to self-study or textbook learning (not limited to these avenues) as it is evidently meant to be. I await the developers’ addition of higher levels to the app — one thing I believe will really make this the absolute best language learning app out there, and my only qualm. As for now, though, my rating stands! This is only app I would ever suggest to another avid language learner, having tried many others in the past. Cheers!
Great idea but...
by Destiny app on 2019/06/10 02:38
I am by no means fluent in Spanish but I do understand an adequate amount of Spanish. Going through the “test out” function was extremely frustrating. For example, the app gives you an English sentence to translate in Spanish. If you don’t know how to say that sentence in Spanish, you can click on the microphone to listen to it. However, it is extremely difficult to understand the woman’s voice verbalizing the sentence. The only way you can progress through the lesson is to spell each word correctly. You then move on to additional scrambled letters so that you may attempt to spell the next word correctly, so on and so forth. On multiple occasions, the English sentence that was being spoken in spanish was either incomprehensible or incorrect. To progress through the lesson, it literally comes down the the letter. If you can’t understand what is being said or if the sentence is being said incorrectly, how are you supposed to move forward?
