Vancouver Startup Begins Unique Language Learning Program

Vancouver language learning startup LingQ welcomes students from around the world to start unique immersive study program. The chosen participants will take advantage of a free summer-long English program in which they will learn about startup related topics such as PR, marketing, design and social media. The program is based on LingQ's context-based language learning method and students will receive advice and guidance from hyperpolyglot Steve Kaufmann (he currently speaks 16 languages).

Vancouver, Canada, May 18, 2016 --( 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. They will study English while immersed in the day-to-day life of a startup.

Students 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 students 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.
