How to read Lingogo style:
To start, your story will appear in Spanish. Don't be intimidated. Scan a Spanish sentence quickly, then tap it. Ta-da! An English translation (crafted by Spanish-obsessed HUMAN professionals) will pop up just for you. It also has buttons to listen to the sentence in Spanish, look up individual words on Google Translate and explore extra translation notes. First time round, just focus on using the English translations to follow the story.
Now you've got the storyline, look closer. Guess what each sentence means before you check the English. Play with the pop ups. Take time to look up single words that you're not sure of. Listen to our native speaker and repeat sentences back aloud. Get into the translation notes to unlock an extra level of understanding.
Read the story several times. Take your time and and use the different functions on our pop-ups as much or as little as you like. You'll be amazed at how quickly your vocab and understanding increases!
When you're ready for a challenge take the ultimate test by flicking to our expert section at the back of your ebook. Here you can listen to the full story in Spanish audio-book style. See how much you can understand and use our scrolling follow-along text to keep up!
We're adding books to the shelf as quickly as we can. Purchase books individually or save with a subscription that unlocks them all.
Lingogo works best with wifi or data connection (but also works without once you've downloaded an ebook).
