Why do YOU Want to learn to speak Japanese?

Hello and Welcome to L-Lingo - Your smart choice for fast and effective language learning!

  • Are you about to embark on a travel to Japan?
  • Do you have a partner, friend, or relative who speaks Japanese?
  • Are you studying Japanese and need additional resources to make learning much faster and more effective?

The language learning software uses words, images and sound clips of native speakers to teach you to converse, read and write in all typical situations, e.g. spending time with friends and family, going to work, shopping and travelling.Thanks to its multimedia content and ease of use, L-Lingo enables you to focus your energies on rapidly learning the language.

  • Switch between the Japanese script or the more easy to read phonetic language
  • Versions available for Windows, Mac and Linux.

The Japanese Language

Japanese is a language spoken by over 130 million people. Japanese vocabulary has been heavily influenced by loans from other languages. A vast number of words were borrowed from Chinese, or created from Chinese models, over a period of at least 1,500 years.

I have been using L-Lingo for about one month, and it has been a successful experience for me. I am on lessons 6 and 7 as I type this note. My retention of the vocabulary has been 100%. I am getting a clear understanding of the grammar as well. Thank you for a well made product. I am still surprised how inexpensive it is compared to some of the competitive products I have reviewed.

About our Method

L-Lingo incorporates the latest research in language learning in order to support individual learning styles.

Immersive Multi-channel Learning with Sights and Sounds

See a pineapple in a supermarket, and the correct Japanese word pops into your head! Thanks to L-Lingo, you have learned the word visually, as well as by listening and reading. Our lessons make you learn words and phrases quickly. Before you know it, you can easily utter words and sentences!

L-Lingo immerses you in the sights and sounds of the Japanese language, rather than just the written word. The multi-channel learning approach achieves results much quicker than traditional textbook approaches.

Just think about how you enjoyed guessing objects on flashcards that were whipped out by your preschool teacher. L-Lingo gives you this kind of approach to make you learn the fun and easy way. Our mp3 files are available for download so you can listen to them over and over again on your ipod. Take them wherever you are so you can be a master of Japanese words and Japanese sentences in no time. Being on the go won't ever hinder you from taking your lessons with you.

Tailored for effective Language learning

Have you always thought that languages were too hard to learn? Or perhaps you thought that the structure is too complex? With L-Lingo, you will find every lesson to suit your learning needs. Whether you are just starting to learn Japanese or probably know quite a few Japanese words and Japanese sentences, we are positive that you will find the course easy to learn.

We approach language learning from different perspectives. Our multimedia approach immerses you into the language but at the same time we leverage your native language by showing you translations of what you learn. We focus on designing a programme that enables you to learn all important aspects of the language in order to achieve your language learning breakthrough!

Learning in Clusters

Equip yourself by learning clusters of Japanese words and Japanese phrases focusing on particular subject areas. L-Lingo reflects research that proves learning clusters of related words is more effective than learning random words, and that the human brain is most comfortable remembering words and sentences of five to seven items.

Learning Japanese in your own Style

Have you ever tried paying for something and later on realize that it's just not the right one for you? You may even find that some programs just don't suit your learning style. The fun and easy way to learn should be something that puts you in control. It's the kind that lets you say, "Oh yes I'm going to learn this my way. I will learn this whenever I want and the way I want it." Talk about liberty!

Every person has their own best way of language learning. As unique as we all are, we learn things best when we get to do it with our own style. We believe that a language learning program should adapt to that style rather than force the learner to learn in a way that is not effective. Therefore, with L-Lingo, the learner can adjust the program to fit to their individual language learning style. We have put a lot of effort into creating a clean and motivating user interface that is easy and intuitive to use.

I would like to tell you how thankful I am that you have come up with such an amazing product. I have always wanted to learn a new language and L-Lingo is just the perfect language learning software for me. I wouldn't have learned how to speak Chinese well enough had I not checked out your free course (which is awesome I must say and way better than other paid versions from other programs in the market). Subscribing to the Premium version was a great decision I made!
