Students love us because we provide a convenient and authentic experience that leads to fluency.

They have a flexible schedule like I have never seen in other language platforms. I am taking classes every day and I always choose the time that suits me best.

Language teachers from around the world have given me the ability to appreciate linguistical nuances and variations in different Spanish speaking countries.

They are really transparent and helpful for me to achieve my goal. They have live chat almost all the time and you can get your responses instantaneously.

Frequently asked questions

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, there are additional interactive exercises 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 German 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. You will be able to interact with the teacher and other students, but there is no pressure to do so. Towards the end of class, the teacher will recap the lesson and ensure everybody has understood the lesson.

Both group and private classes are very effective with Lingoda, but it depends on your personal preferences what you’d like to do.

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 German online 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 German language courses you choose, as some of our plans are more intensive than others.

Great question! CEFR stands for Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. It is an internationally recognised framework that describes language ability from A1-C2. A1 being basic and moving up to C2 proficiency.

All of our German teachers are native speakers, no exceptions. They are also highly-qualified. We are strict with hiring only teachers that have years of experience and can provide the highest quality teaching. Our teachers are also trained with the Lingoda method and standard, so you can learn German online smoothly.

Our students love learning with a variety of teachers because it means they are exposed to the range of accents present in the real world. This is just one of the many ways that the Lingoda classroom gets you to real fluency.

All materials are unique and specially created by Lingoda experts to align with CEFR. You can download the German class materials for free and use them at any time. After class, you’ll also find a quiz and some exercises that you can use to help refresh and practice your new skills.

We offer a free placement test that we encourage you to take before you begin learning. The length of the test depends on your level. The higher your level, the more complicated the questions will become. You can take the test here.

Yes! You receive a certificate for each level you finish with Lingoda. Our certificates are issued in accordance with the CEFR and accepted by many institutions worldwide. To get a certificate, you’ll have to complete 90% of your classes in a module for a CEFR language (this does not include Business English).
