Speak our language!
We are Lingoda. Our mission is to build bridges through life-changing language learning.
Lingoda is a fast-growing online language school for language learners aspiring to provide a human-centric, personalised and seamless learning experience unmatched by competitors. With Lingoda, you're not just learning - you're teaming up with an expert who understands your goals and guides you to success, every step of the way.
Our classes are teacher-led, and supported in- and out-of-class by the latest technologies and a unique curriculum to empower our students to achieve their language goals. High-quality classes are available online 24/7, so anyone anywhere has the opportunity to learn a language with Lingoda.
As a company we bring out the best in people with a positive culture. We challenge ourselves, and we challenge others. We work smart and make it happen. We believe in personal growth and inclusion.
We work hard to contribute to a better society. How? Here are three examples:
Lingoda’s MATCH network and Global Career Centre seek to upskill and match migrants to career opportunities in Germany, supporting them through government-funded education programs
In the German healthcare sector, we support international nurses, doctors and midwives to obtain language and professional recognition through state-sponsored education programs. As a result we have become one of the largest educational providers in this field in Germany
In December 2022, we won “Best Digital Learning Product of the Year” at the Digital Education Awards 2022
