    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

    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 !

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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!

    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! 😁👏
