Frequently asked questions

You don’t have to take your classes in the order they’re laid out as each lesson is independent of the other. However, we recommend taking the orientation class at the beginning of the level to help guide you.

Once you have completed a level, all students receive a Lingoda certificate, verifying your accomplished skills. We structure our classes based on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR), an internationally renowned standard that guides you from Absolute Beginner (A1) to Advanced (C1).

As a Lingoda student, you can download the class materials for free and use them at any time. After your class, you will also find a quiz to help you refresh and practice your new skills. For English and A1 German students, downloadable exercises are available as well. All materials are uniquely created by Lingoda experts to align with CEFR standards. If you want to learn more about CEFR, view here.

After scheduling a class on our platform, you will be able to join the class with 2-4 fellow students from around the world. The teacher will introduce themselves and begin teaching the lesson using learning materials that you can download at the end of class. During the class, we encourage you to interact not only with the materials and the teacher but also with the students. Towards the end of class, the teacher will recap the lesson and ensure everybody has understood the lesson.

No, we are not a language learning app. We are an online language school and the best language learning website. And like any school, we offer live classes with certified, native-speaking teachers. We believe that nothing can replace live interaction and customised feedback from a real person. Learn languages online with Lingoda.

Preparing to learn with us is simple. You need three things: a stable internet connection, a computer and the free video conferencing tool Zoom.

It depends. As is the case when learning any new skill, your progress depends on your efforts. If you would like to learn quickly, then we suggest that you make language learning a consistent habit. Also focus and participate in class and complete the downloadable materials at the end of each class for best results. It also depends on which of Lingoda’s online language courses you choose, as some of our plans are more intensive than others.
