Beginning the move to new Lingt

Happy holidays everyone! For Christmas, we got you all a new and improved Lingt!

It’s no secret that Lingt has been showing it’s age for awhile. We’ve not only re-designed the site to look a lot cleaner, but many of the technologies behind the scenes have been updated to hopefully result in our service being faster and more reliable.

We’re going to continue working to improve things, but we think new Lingt is ready to begin going mainstream. If you’re a current user on Lingt, we encourage you to begin using the new service at lingt.com. We’ve migrated everyone’s accounts over, so you can use your same email and password on the new site.

However, if you prefer, you can continue to use your old account on lingtlanguage.com for the rest of this school year.  After that, we’re going to move everyone over to the new site.

And, as always, just get in touch if you have any questions or need help with anything as we make this move.

We hope everyone enjoys the new Lingt as much as we do. Happy holidays!

 

UPDATE 1/15/17:

We’ve heard you and you can now easily move your classrooms and assignments over to the new Lingt.  Just visit your account page on lingt.com and use the button near the bottom to start copying over your assignments.  If you need any help just reach out to us at support@lingt.com.

Checkout the new Lingt!

We’ve re-built Lingt from the ground up and we’d like to invite you to try it out!

At the moment our old site is still running at http://lingtlanguage.com, but we’d like to invite you to try out our new beta at https://www.lingt.com.  Your old logins and passwords should still work.  The site is still in beta so if you run into any issues, definitely send us feedback at support@lingtlanguage.com.  Eventually, we plan to move all usage to lingt.com but we need your help working through the kinks first.

Back to school!

Its back to school season at Ling Classroom! Nothing has changed too much but Kim & I and are still keeping things running here.  We’ve recently upgraded our audio services with more handle more storage.  As always, let us know if we can help with anything, though please forgive us if it takes a bit more time than normal to respond to everything.

Best,

Kim & Chris

Lingt Classroom 2013 updates!

We are thrilled to be back and will be taking a more active role in our blog!

Since our last post, we’ve had  over 40,000 monthly users and are incredibly honored to be able to provide a useful tool for our schools and teachers around the world.

Please stay posted!

We can be reached by email at info@lingtlanguage.com, we love to hear from you!

You can follow us on Twitter @Lingt and Facebook!

Lingt Classroom reaches over 10000 hours of audio!

A few days ago Lingt Classroom stored enough audio to play continuously for over a year.  We’ve had to continually upgrade our audio servers to compensate for this increase in usage.

Since our last update we’ve continued to grow and are seeing Lingt Classroom used for languages from Russian to Burmese, and even applications from History to Speech Therapy.  A number of schools in the U.S. as well as international schools abroad have begun to use Lingt Classroom extensively among their staff.  In some cases Lingt Classroom is being used as language lab alternative that supports out of classroom and asynchronous voice feedback between teachers and students.

Thanks to all those advisors, teachers, and students that have supported us along the way. Direct referrals from other educators continue to be our biggest source of new users.

We look forward to providing the education community with a high quality product for the years and years to come.

We had a great time at American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages in Boston this year!  Thanks to all the educators that stopped by our booth to say hi.

We spent 3 furious days spreading the word and talking with current users of Lingt Classroom to get lots of great feedback on how to make things better.  Look for your improvements coming out in the future!

Big things are happening here at Lingt!

We’ve spent the last year listening to educators, hearing feedback, and improving our product.  And it’s paid off, thanks to your hard work – Lingt Classroom has been used in over 3000 classrooms worldwide, recording more than 2000 hours of audio data!  So in order to celebrate our progress over the last year, in the coming months we’ll be adding a fantastic set of new features, as well as transitioning to a new three-tier service model. For details on this new model go here.

Thank you for your continued support – it’s been an incredible year!

Lingt launches new product at lingt.com

We’ve been busy this summer doing two things. First, we’ve been thrilled to see Lingt Classroom grow in popularity and become an integral part of classrooms across the globe. It’s been a pleasure getting to know all the teachers out there who actively search for new technology to improve their students’ experience and found us. To all our users: thank you.

Secondly, we built a shiny new product that helps individuals learn a language online. As opposed to Lingt Classroom which helps teachers engage their students, our new site is meant for anyone that wants to self-study to pick up a new language. Lingt Classroom is still going to operate and be supported like it always has, and we look forward to continuing to improve it.

You can see the new site here. Right now, we’re only offering Chinese (other languages to be added soon), so to the Chinese teachers using Lingt: please tell your students to check it out.
