Get students to speakDespite decades of consensus that the point of studying language is to learn to speak, foreign language classrooms are still dominated by fill-in-the-blank and matching exercises. Lingt allows teachers to easily create online assignments that get students speaking without having to devote already limited class time and resources.

Our core valuesLingt operates and will continue to grow under the following principles:
- Innovative language learning technology can have the greatest effect in foreign language classrooms where learning is supervised and driven by teachers.
- Our technology should be applicable to any curriculum, textbook, or teaching methodology. It should be a useful complement to a teacher’s preferred teaching style.
- Technology is an enabling tool. Educational innovation itself only comes through developers, teachers, and students working together to identify new best practices and applications.
- Sound pedagogy should direct technology development. Developers should be familiar with accepted research in language acquisition and work to apply its principles to improve learning.
