Magiclingua combines the latest technology with real people to help you learn to speak your new language from day one, without embarrassment. It’s the first language learning app built for your tongue, not your thumb. 

Gain confidence by practicing with our AI-powered conversation partner and then apply your skills with native human speakers. You’ll be surprised at how fast you move forward.

Leo is one of our thousands of beta testers who tried our method and helped us develop the final concept. Watch him learn German with Magiclingua and pay attention to the way the AI partner reacts when Leo corrects himself.



How many times have you wished for a simple explanation of how things work in another language? Or even better, to have them explained by a teacher who’s a native speaker? Those short explanations will give you all the grammar you need to start speaking another language. Nothing more, nothing less. Also, learning in small chunks will boost your efficiency while mastering a new language.

Our language instructors will guide you through the whole course and keep you motivated with their energy and personality.


After the video tutorial, it’s your turn to speak! You can apply what you’ve learned immediately. This will help you retain it much better. Our smart conversation bot will be patient, won't judge you and will let you practice as long as you want without any fear or awkwardness.


Get instant feedback and explanations

Concentrate on practicing instead of being worried about what people might think about you. This way you’ll avoid embarrassment and any fear of speaking, and will make real progress.


Nothing can ever replace a real-life conversation! And now that you’ve gained enough confidence to know what to say and how to say it, you’re ready to chat with native speakers without fear of embarrassment. This means you’ll be able to enjoy your session from the beginning to the end.

Our tutor sessions last 30 minutes. During each session, you will speak in dialogs, describe images and listen to how spoken language sounds.

*  If you choose either the "Starter" or the "Starter+Tutors" package you'll be able to activate your 3 or 6 months access anytime after the official launch in August 2019.  You'll be able to choose your level at activation. You won't be able to pause the access once activated. Additionally, you'll get access to all test exercises during the beta period. 

* If you choose one of the lifetime accounts containing all languages you will also get access to all languages we will add in the future.

* If you are a company or organization and are interested in bigger packages don't hesitate to contact us

Course structure and how our speech recognition works

WEB DEMO

You can use Magiclingua in most major browsers on your laptop or desktop PC. Still, as the product is in its early stages, the speech recognition might be unstable - so you could experience delays until the answer is displayed, or your voice might not always be recognized correctly. With your help, we will polish the desktop version and, most importantly, we will develop the mobile apps which will allow us to offer you a better and stable experience.

Risks and challenges

To minimize any risks we have already tested our software, teaching methodology, and tutor sessions with several thousand students learning German and Spanish. The overwhelmingly positive feedback has given us the confidence that what we have built is considered very valuable by the learners. What we will add will only make it better. Nevertheless, here is our honest view on the potential risks:

• Scaling up the tutors' community
How we manage this risk: A structured onboarding process for the tutors; step-by-step scripts developed by experienced teachers for the tutor sessions so that any tutor can follow them easily; fair pay for the tutors.

• Creating courses in a timely manner
How we manage this risk: Working together with experienced teachers and language schools; reiterating and fast testing of courses in development (all backers will get sneak peeks and will have the chance to give feedback); technical infrastructure which allows us to make changes in lessons without needing to update the apps (and therefore avoids any potential delays due to app store approval waiting times).

• Voice recognition
How we manage this risk: Building custom models for better accent recognition; using the latest technology that advances very rapidly. It already works well and will keep getting better!
