Hi, I’m Kevin. I studied Spanish and Russian for many years in school because I fell in love with the language and culture. When I finally traveled to Argentina and Russia, I realized that despite all the years of classes, I didn’t know enough vocabulary to meaningfully communicate with the people there!
I created this app to help me substantially increase my vocabulary so that I can make new friends and connections everywhere I go.
As an Ivy League computer science graduate, and with former experience at Facebook and a quantitative hedge fund, I hope to use my knowledge to build the best language learning application, so that people can confidently and meaningfully connect with people all around the world.
The top 5,000 words account for 95% of text and speech. ListLang teaches you these words in a variety of contexts.
ListLang uses a custom spaced-repetition algorithm to present vocabulary at the most optimal time for memory and retention.
ListLang performs linguistic analysis on texts with advanced, state-of-the-art neural networks.
Everything is 100% free as we’re currently in the beta phase to create the best learning experience possible.
ListLang is one of the greatest things I've come across in my two years of studying Spanish. There's so much that I love about it -- using sentences to give some context and an example of usage, the way sentences are written to make it easy to learn other vocabulary than the targeted word, the option to just go through the lists without sentences, etc.
I LOVE ListLang. Great job! So simple, so well done.
This app focuses on doing one thing very well. This is exactly the type of app I need. Too many apps try to do too many things, offering crazy bells and whistles that don't actually help you achieve the task.
