  • Update takes away the learning tips😤🙅🏻‍♀️

    By sewchibi
    LingoDeer was my favorite foreign language learning app. The BEST part about LingoDeer (and where it surpassed Duolingo IMO) was that it taught you about the lesson BEFORE you took the quizzes. Now, they’ve taken away that feature unless you have a membership. What a shame; I’d been using the app for over a year and now I don’t even want to use it anymore. Please find a different way to make the subscription more enticing for members and BRING BACK the learning tips for everyone!
  • FREEZES in middle of lesson when i make mistake

    By mangochan3
    If I get something wrong in the middle of the lesson it will freeze and turn red and I cannot do anything in the app until I quit the app and then I have to start the lesson all over again
  • Best language app by far

    By tayntay
    Unlike most language apps this app teaches you all the information you should know before going into learning new words and grammar. It’s easy and fun to learn with.
  • 🥰

    By Derpyz Potatoxoxo
    I love it because I love the Asian culture and this app is ALL about it Im even surprised how eco friendly Asia is. Thanks to this app my parents won't get kidnapped and I'll able to speak all sorts of new languages! 😂🤣
  • Just started and it so easy!

    By *$CAMPkid$*
    I wanted to learn Korean for a very long time and this app makes it so easy! I’ve been working on it for 2 hours and just subscribed to the quarterly subscription! I feel by the end of the week I may be able to write a sentence or two. The speaking aspect will be difficult without actually speaking in person to someone but I mostly am looking to learn to read and write anyway!
  • Grading

    By QbotMC
    All in all, this app is great. However, the way it grades your progress is way off. I'm using it to learn Japanese and also checked out the Chinese section since I already know a good portion of the language. But when I started to learn I made plenty of mistakes but got a Perfect rating. I don't like that. Otherwise, I really recommend this app to anyone learning Asian languages!!
  • Great app!

    By BalefireZ
    This is by far the best app I have found to learn Japanese. I have tried other apps that were ok to decent, but this one surpasses the others by far.
  • Great

    By shellymeo
  • Its a good app but some small....(not) things

    By Ikra-Playz
    I tried this app out of curiosity from my cousins. They said have you tried LingoDeer and I said no, So I tried it. I used Duolingo before this so this may be the slightly from me being used to this. At first I liked it but when I was doing the Japanese lesson, I noticed it gave you the Katakana then the Hiragana in small letters over it. I knew these words in Katakana so it didn’t bother me but for someone who hasn’t seen katakana before and was just learning that day I can imagine it may be a little much to quickly. Now some people can just soak up the info like that easily and be fine but some can’t. I think LingoDeer May just need to have a little lesson in between to kinda ease them into the katakana from the hiragana. Now my main problem was Korean. I’ve wanted to learn Korean because I liked K-pop and just the language was fascinating!(still love japanese more though.) This I was hoping would help me with the alphabet.To this day I struggle with remembering the letters and symbols and how they are formed together. So I had high hopes. For the alphabet part I kinda got it and was pretty excited I may have found something that would help but then, the first actual lesson (nationality) things just dropped. Mainly in the end Story they have you do to complete it. I’ve done the Japanese story so I was expecting it to be similar. Boy was I wrong. It had words I’ve never seen before in the lesson nor Doulingo yet. It was talking ‘bout things like K-pop and some other interest that you may hear in a conversation. My issue is it never went over anything in that genres even close!!There was like one sentence that was from the lesson....So I’m looking at it confused trying to go back in the lessons seeing if I missed something(I didn’t) then the story expects you to answer what ever question the story asked as you where part of the story.and the answers as you can probably guess, were in Korean and was words they didn’t teach yet. I honstly just gave up at this point. Also one other thing is, you HAVE to buy a premium to even go any further then the first lesson. That isn’t really a lot of lesson to be like “yeah, I’ll spend 20$ (more or less) on this premium.” I personally wouldn’t. Sorry LingoDeer, your a good app but it need work. I would do 3 1/2 but that’s not an option. I’ll say what I do like is the little lessons, overall it works (functions) great and the voices are clear. The layout and design is good and cheerful, Also the little deer mascot is really cute! If you read this all, your a dear soul, any of my reviews make zero sense....
  • wow!

    By a_thena_
    i got the app before the subscriptions started, and i always wondered why it was free! the lessons are well planned and everything is neat and organized; it also has accurate information, so it’s not like google translate. lingodeer is a really useful app!
  • Awesome so far

    By *please insert name here*
    I prefer this app over Duolingo for Korean and Japanese—the sentences don’t seem to attempt direct translations (which...just doesn’t work sometimes). Not a fan of heavy usage of those, because you’re not thinking about how to put together sentences in your target language so much as how to change one word into another. So far no technical issues with anything I’ve used; sometimes I go 🤔 on an English translation of a Japanese verb or noun, but this may be UK vs US English(?). Thank you guys and gals!
  • Ummmm.....

    By butterchez
    Okay I love this app. I am currently learning Japanese, Korean, and Chinese. This app is amazing. It definitely challenges you to remember the vocab and grammar structure of the language you are learning. This is good because it helps you learn faster. When I downloaded LingoDeer a year ago, everything was free. For me it is still free. I am already deep into the Japanese, Korean, and Chinese lessons. I recommended this app to my friend and she recently downloaded it. It doesn't let her get past the first few lessons with out a paywall which I don't really understand. Why would this app have no paywall for me but have a paywall for my friend? Don't get me wrong, I am extremely grateful that this app doesn't force me to get a paywall. I'm just confused as to why my friend has to pay? Once I get a good job I'd like to support the creators, but I'm still quite confused about this situation.
  • 👍🏽

    By Juju Ruiz
    I love this app, I helped me learn for awhile. Until I had to pay. I understand that it takes a lot of effort to develop and manage an app but we HAVE to pay in order to keep learning. I want to learn Korean, I was so excited when I had finished the lessons. I was excited to see what was next, until I found out I had to buy membership to keep learning. That’s the thing I didn’t like.
  • Change pictures please!

    By danaerubi
    I’m absolutely loving LingoDeer to learn Korean, however I keep getting questions wrong because the pictures aren’t easy to understand. The picture for mother and sister look almost identical, the picture for desk kind of looks like a library, and the worst ones are the pictures for days of the week. They look like Chinese characters or something, but I’m not studying Chinese. So when it asks me what day Sunday is I get the question wrong when I know the correct answer! Please make the pictures easier to tell what they are.

    By cupataewithsugaandakookie
    Personally all the apps I've tried before didn't really help. I would quit after 2 days. But this app just hooked me somehow. It gives you notes before the lesson and each section is quite easy. I recommend everybody should try it.
  • Love it!

    By BatSqueak98
    I absolutely love this app. It has helped me so much in learning how to speak Japanese and understand it. I was using DuoLingo for a bit, and that did get me into Japanese, but it was hard for me to comprehend the language because there wasn’t a more in depth explanation like there is with DeerLingo. So glad my brother sent this app to me!
  • Exceptional App Quality!

    By alexden96
    This app is super easy and fun to learn a totally new language with! The point system and gentle reminders help motivate you to get to studying, and you are able to learn at your own pace to really solidify lessons. The free trial is extremely generous by letting you get a proper feel for the app before you decide on the subscription. I admit, I was hesitant once the price tag popped up, but this wonderful app is well worth it for the top-notch quality of teaching (and to be honest, the subscription isn’t even that bad!) My family knows nothing about my mother’s biological Korean family, so I’m hoping that by learning the Korean language I can reconnect in some small way with my heritage. Thank you guys for making Korean not so daunting of a task! :D

    By bittetsweet moments
    I got this app because I really needed help learning languages and it was recommended by a YouTuber that I watch. The sound effects work but in lessons and such the sound isn’t working at all. I contacted the help center and I haven’t gotten contacted back. I just want to be able to hear the lesson ! LIKE SERIOUSLY I CANT EVEN BEGIN TO LEARN IF I CANT HEAR WHAT ITS SAYING AND I ALSO CANT SEE THE PICTURES ON THE LESSONS!!??!!
  • Some typos

    By Appreciative Customer 025
    So I’ve been noticing that there are typos in the correct answer when you type answers in Korean. An example of this would be if an sentence ends with 입니다 the “correct answer” will say 입니다다 or 입니다니다. I assume is just a typo but I wanted to bring it up so that it can be fixed. It’s often enough to be annoying, as in at least every other lesson. Because of this, when I do have the correct answer it will be taken as wrong because the “correct answer” has a typo. Thank you.
  • Wow!! Best language app by far!

    By Hedwigthegreat
    An amazing app! The developers have thought of everything here. I have used numerous language apps to support study of several languages. This one is the most fun, motivating, and thorough. Outstanding!
  • Good App

    By PsychopathicSarah
    I had been using the app for a week and I was already learning several Japanese characters and phrases. I love this app so much! I’m pretty bummed out now though because I can’t afford the premium and I can’t continue the rest of my courses. Still a pretty great app though.
  • WORTH IT!! 💖

    By Purrrple Art03
    Honestly, I’ve been learning Korean for a few months through websites and videos, but because the videos and websites didn’t go together, I wasn’t really getting things. I didn’t have a system or structure to learn things in since I didn’t know where to look and practically watched/read anything I could find. I was starting to get unmotivated about studying until I asked a friend of mine what she used to study Korean and she recommended me this app. I remember hearing about LingoDeer before through my fav polyglot YouTuber, iKenna, so I thought “why not check it out?”. BEST DECISION EVER. I tried the first few lessons for free and although it was pretty easy, I wanted more. I skimmed over the lesson topics and checked the membership prices to debate if I should buy it. Eventually I caved in because 1)year long membership was on sale 2) if my favorite polyglot YouTuber used it and recommends it, I trust him. And 3) My friend can hold an intermediate level convo in Korean now. I can tell you for sure that after I got the membership and unlocked all the lessons, I have been glued to this app. I never feel unmotivated to log in each day and learn, I actually get excited and I love how there’s stories at the end of each lesson! I can spend as little as 5/10 minutes on this app to a whole hour! So if you’re wondering if it’s worth it... it is!! Go buy yourself a membership!! Now!!!
  • Why do I have to pay now?

    By EddieSconzo
    Last year I used this app when I wanted to start learning Japanese and it was amazing the app worked so well and provided so much information and I was extremely happy with it. I learned a lot of Japanese through the app and it helped me out a lot in my college class of Japanese language. I wound up not continuing the language and app and stopped using it so I forgot most of what I knew. Recently I became interested in relearning Japanese again and this was the first app I came to because I knew how fantastic it was. To my biggest disappointment though I find I can’t use anything. All the have is the alphabet and 3 nationality mini lessons that don’t really teach you much. When I used this app last year everything was free I was so surprised when I couldn’t use the same lessons as before. I guess that explains why it won’t allow me to login to my old account on her because it was back when everything was free. This app was great but I’m not paying for something that once was entirely free especially when there’s other apps exactly like this that continue to remain free
  • It would help

    By prisy910
    It would help if it pointed out or highlight where you miss spelled something.
  • Best Language learning app

    By mbj07161997
    I was apprehensive to spend the money at first but I loved the way this app actually explained things out to me instead of just expecting me to catch on. It’s really helped me learn how the sentences are structured together and what characters are necessary for what I’m trying to say.
  • Not free anymore

    By Addjapanese
    This used to be a great app but now you can’t even use it for free! This is a such shame because I liked this app so much but now I have to switch to a different language app.
  • Great learning tool

    By Cv ghost fight
    I have used a lot of language tools but this one is by far the absolute best in learning and training yourself to hear and also learn the Chinese literature (symbols) at the same time. As you go down the line you start doing speech training to perfect your speaking skills so this is an all in one step by step language training app and I am learning so much from it. I hope you continue to update with more training ideas to make it even better. Rosetta Stone better be running for their money because I think they just got beat by this app!!
  • Duolingo it is!

    By CrazyTiger2023
    Duolingo in my best option here. I can’t learn on this app!! “Free” “better then Duolingo” “amazing” what type of lie is FREE! THIS IS NOT FREE!! I can’t say that this app is good. I don’t have money to pay for this! I don’t care if it’s professional, I don’t care if it’s the best, some people have money, most people don’t! There’s a paywall and that’s why most people aren’t using this app. I’m tired a lot, I don’t go outside much, and am just a mess. So when I get something done I feel really good. But I don’t feel like I’m getting anything done on this app. I hated this app so much it just kinda sat there. After awhile I thought about it and said “it’s super good but I can’t use it” and deleted it. I can’t believe I even kept it on my phone! Every time I saw it I remembered how much of a failure I was because I couldn't get money to pay for this stupid app! I’m not gonna waste my time on something I can’t use! And I can’t even say that this app is super helpful and good cuz it’s not! Want me to name MORE thing that make me mad!? It’s super glitchy and my phone is a year old, and glitch is rare. My progress doesn’t save. It’s confusing, there’s no explanation to how to use it. Wow I wrote a mini essay on how bad this is. I’m angry at this app so I’m sorry if I sound to aggressive but i mean, my cousin and some friends feel it two so. I hope you people who say it’s “free” get your head out of the clouds.
  • This app is everything

    By Hadelin2003
    I really And truly love this app, it has taught me sooo much and I can make conversations so easily. It helps me master subjects and gives me the tips I need. I love this app so much! ❤️❤️💕
  • amazing! 대박!

    By ❤️Antasasia❤️
    detailed yet easy to understand lessons, beautiful interface
  • Best app to learn Japanese

    By CaptainAniki
    I have been a Japanese language enthusiast for over seven years and I have tried every language learning app for Japanese and lingo deer has been the one I find myself coming to out of all the other apps. It’s well balance between reading and speaking and really works well with grammar and particles which has been my struggle for ever. Best app for Japanese. It should always be on top of your learning language journey and is worth the subscription.
  • This is really fun

    By Meratinii
    I literally have so much fun learning the different language skills. I am planning on visiting Korea and Japan and I love how this app gives you full sentences and even teaches you basic introductions. I am still going through it but it is fun so far!!!
  • Error in learning Japanese !!

    By Kiba Kazuto
    I'm learning Japanese from Vietnamese. When i learn the JP alphabet, the "katakana" from the down line of my phone can't be choose !!! Please do st about this !!!
  • Free of charge pls 🥺

    By aishath_oi
    After one part I wish the other part too can be free of charge. It’s so hard to get an application that is free of charge when it comes to studying foreign languages! Hope you guys will think about it to make it free of charge at a point! Other than that the entire application is so colorful and exciting to study with! 💜
  • WHYY

    So I tried making an account but the email I used did not let me sign in but overall the app is great!<3 (please fix the problem)
  • Good mix of romanji, kanji and natural voice

    By jsaaymi
    Compared to other apps, this app definitely helped me learn the kanji along with the correct pronunciation.
  • I’ve tried +20 learning apps and this is #1!

    By 김 미나❤️
    I’m someone who loves the idea of learning Korean but when it actually came down to studying Korean as a young adult it was very hard. I always make excuses for having a busy life for the reason why I couldn’t learn Korean but this app take that all away. It makes me really happy to learn while I’m on this app. I enjoyed the free run so much that I purchased a three month subscription but I’m pretty sure after the three months is over I’m going to get a year subscription because there’s so much this app can teach me. I started off on this app and it honestly feels like a game even though I’m learning Korean and the more I learn the more excited I am to continue with this app. Even if it’s only 30 minutes a day (you can do more or less if you want) it’s still amazing!
  • Impressed

    By fadarome
    This app is great. Whatever glitz it has, I’m sure it’ll be fix soon enough so I won’t focus on that. I have learned so much in the few days I’ve been using this app. I’m now able to read and recognize Korean characters which I thought would be impossible for me at one point so I’m really impressed with this app. Great job 🤙🏿
  • There’s potential but the paywall is way too early

    By DefineNormal
    I understand the need for paywalls, particularly in sophisticated apps where there’s a lot of hard work put in by the developers. But there’s also a need to balance that with giving the customer enough to tell whether the product is worth their hard earned dollars. The two free lessons are the alphabet and nationality-most people who’ve tried to pick up the language for an hour or two on any other system have covered this and there’s so little vocab at this point that the answers are obvious. And the alphabet is a poor indicator of what the rest of the system will look like regardless. So the system looks like it might be good but who’s to say since I can’t test it against material I’m not already familiar with? Even expanding this to an additional lesson or two (the determiner/possessive) would greatly increase the ability to get a sense for the flow of lessons in this app—the very next lesson seems to have a different section “learning tips” that I didn’t try in the previous one. Will every lesson be in a completely different format from the previous one? At this point I can’t tell. Given there seem to be some sixty or seventy lessons in the first level of the language, I highly doubt giving free users the next lesson or two will cut into profits and it certainly would help people like me who are on the fence determine if it’s the right system for them.
  • Best Language App I've ever tried.

    By anna rey
    I've been learning Korean for a few months now and I'm always on the look out for resources. I would like to say that Lingodeer is by far the best app I've ever tried. I bought a 3-month subscription and considering to upgrade it to Lifetime if everything goes well (cause I need to polish my rusty Chinese too). I'm just bummed that I missed the $20 sale on Lifetime. :( Please please bring it back. Hehe :) 감사합니다, Lingodeer team for a really well-designed app! Cheers!
  • Best app to learn a language

    By raeepaark
    I have successfully mastered korean. And can have conversations. I’m going to try Japanese and fix up my Chinese. Keep up the good work!
  • Perfect for starters

    By Johr Dinh
    It doesn’t have the most vocabulary out there, but that’s easy to find and supplement from elsewhere. What Lingodeer is good at is delivering grammar, sentence structure, memorization in an easily digestible and fun format with pronunciation by native speakers. Learning a new language is extremely rewarding, and this is a great starting point imo. I got a lifetime membership for Korean and Japanese and haven’t regretted it...i’ve spent much more for much less meaningful activities lol
  • Great but...

    By Carnisha S.
    I love the app like it helps a lot but what I don’t understand is why when I used to have the app on my Android it was free the do all the first few lesson but on my iPhone I can only have one free lesson and the rest I have to pay for . I don’t understand ...

    By jaiajshishwbs
    This app is literally everything I’ve been looking for in my whole life. I don’t know what I would be without this app! This app has help me advance so much in learning Chinese! I made to intermediate in less than 2 months! This app is perfect for those who are interested in learning Chinese, Japanese, korean, and maybe even Spanish! This app made my life so much better and easier and I feel very comfortable every time I use it. And the best part is that it doesn’t make it seem so boring, instead, it’s makes it more interesting, fun, and definitely more enjoyable ☺️! I recommend this app to everyone interested in learning a new langauage. This app is truly a lifesaver😁👍
  • Best language app

    By SamuraiDiana
    I love this app so much. It’s very minimalistic and straight to the point. I love that when you tap on a word it tells you a definition and goes more in depth to what that word means. I’ve tried out the Korean, Spanish, and German feature and all seem really good. I highly recommend to download this to learn.
  • Not free, but it would be good.

    By LLazzy
    This is definitely not free, quite overpriced actually. It only gives you about 5 minutes then you can’t learn anything without paying.
  • I can’t rate this highly enough.

    By Jandrarlon
    I’ve wanted to learn Korean for a long time, but the resources for it aren’t as common as I’d like. I can’t learn languages well from books, so an app is right up my alley. The cheerful sounds and bright interfaces help me remember vocabulary. I waited months for Duolingo to get Korean but I was so disappointed by it. I just couldn’t pick it up from the lessons. Later I read reviews and, supposedly, it wasn’t that great of a course anyway. I eventually discovered TTMIK, and I love it even now! But, I feel discouraged by the slow vocabulary acquisition from it. Luckily, someone on Reddit recommended LingoDeer. I picked it up and, wow. I’m still on the early lessons, but it’s amazing. The pronunciation is clearly enunciated, there are grammar explanations for each lesson, and my hangeul comprehension has already improved drastically. Using this in tandem with TTMIK is working wonders. I can’t recommend this app enough.
  • Nice learning but the membership

    By Annnmmmmnnna
    I have been learning Korean on here and it was really fun but when I finished the two starter lessons I couldn’t learn more cause I needed a membership I was really upset
  • Good app for learning Japanese

    By Susokukan47
    I am moving to Japan soon, and I have been using LingoDeer to brush up on my rusty Japanese 101 from college 15 years ago. It’s a simple, fun app and I really like using it! Just one suggestion: I have run into a few situations where I was marked as wrong for typing a word in katakana when the lessons have it being shown in hiragana but I know that the word is actually written in katakana normally. This is just a little thing, but I’d love to not have to worry about getting confused about what words use katakana beyond the program.
