This is the semi-official Sunday launch of our language learning software – Ingolingo. Ingolingo is based on the idea that it’s easy to remember words if you have some context around which to associate the words. If I were to simply tell you that Flasche means Bottle in German, you would probably forget very quickly. However, if I asked you to guess what the German translation of “bottle” is, and gave you clues to help you, you are more likely to remember it. That’s the ingolingo concept – we ask you to guess a word, then give you pictures that hint towards what the word is, actually making you think about the word, and remember it better.
This is just a modest minimum feature launch. Ingolingo is incredibly useful now (my Chinese is improving fast), but we have big plans for this tool.
Ingolingo is a tool we created because we need it. It’s a business that provides a service we need, and I think this is the best sort of business. Try it out and send us an email with your comments on how we can make this tool the best and simplest language learning tool on the planet.
