Vancouver Startup Begins Unique Language Learning Program

LingQ welcomes students from around the world to start immersive three-month English program.

Online PR News – 17-May-2016 – Vancouver, Canada – Two months ago language learning platform LingQ made an amazing offer to English language learners around the world: come study at LingQ over the summer for free! This week the chosen students arrive from Taiwan, Hungary and South Korea to start a course that has never been offered before.

The students will study English while immersed in the day-to-day life of a startup. They will have the opportunity to study marketing, PR, design, customer service, programming and more during their time in Vancouver under the supervision of the LingQ team, including Steve Kaufmann, who speaks 16 languages. Steve has learned nine languages using the LingQ system and is an advocate for learning from content learners actually find interesting. That’s why the vast LingQ language libraries are filled with engaging content on a variety of topics.

By the end of the program, the LingQ Academy students will have improved their core English skills, created a portfolio of mock startup related projects and had a West Coast adventure! Follow the journeys of Tamás from Hungary, Emily from Taiwan and Hanna from South Korea on the LingQ YouTube channel. Videos will be posted every Tuesday and Friday.
