Quick Facts
About Lingo Legend


Learning a language is one of the most rewarding experiences but many people struggle to reach their goals. Most language learning apps treat motivation as an afterthought – we think it's half the battle! Lingo Legend is a platform that combines language with gaming so that learners stay motivated and practicing over the long haul. 

Our mission is to continue expanding Lingo Legend with awesome game experiences inspired by the ones that we love to play, while creating novel learning experiences that are truly engaging. With platform features like badges to unlock and leaderboards to climb, there will always be something to engage and motivate learners to continue playing and practicing.

Education Features

  • Practice over 3,500 flashcards organized into useful topics such as ordering food or meeting new people

  • Retain the concepts you’ve learned using our spaced-repetition algorithm

  • Apply your language skills with unique questions types

  • Developed by language acquisition experts passionate about keeping people engaged in learning a language


Players' language skills are tested while exploring the world in strategic monster battles. Each turn, players draw ability cards from a personalized deck and must correctly answer language flashcards to play them. Players face opponents of varying difficulty and must gain experience to unlock new cards and craft powerful weapons to defeat them. Explore a vibrant world, meet intriguing characters, and complete quests all while learning a new language.


Hamish and Aila are humble farmers living peaceful lives when their farm is attacked by monsters. Their beloved animals are terrified and flee into Yorthwood, the forest nearby. They soon discover more than just their animals are hidden in these mystical woods. As they venture deeper into the forest they find themselves intertwined in a conflict larger than they could have imagined. 


Learning a language has never been this fun.
