A1 Visiting the coldest town in the world

Tap on a word to see translation

Le village le plus froid est en Sibérie. Environ 500 personnes habitent dans ce village. La température la plus basse était de moins 70 °C. Presque toute l' année, la température est inférieure à zéro degré. Le lait est vendu en bloc. Il n' y a pas d' eau courante. En juillet, la température la plus élevée est d' environ 20 °C. C' est très difficile de cultiver quelque chose. Les gens mangent surtout de la viande et du poisson. Ils mangent de la viande de cheval parce que les chevaux sont bien adaptés au climat.

WHAT REAL USERS AND PROFESSORS SAY ABOUT LANGSTER

A unique app

It was so helpful and custom-made for my learning style that I wanted to write a review, even though I very rarely take the time. I find it wonderful how the developers thought out all the different needs of the learner and sought to meet them with the app.

John Steward - Learning German

Hidden gem

This is probably one of the most effective language learning apps I have come across. Well graded texts with quick and easy access to dictionary and grammar explanations. Stories are not too long which enables time for a thorough review and recap.

Jim - Learning French

One of a kind

I don’t write reviews often at all, but I felt compelled to write one for this app. I’ve tried probably 6-8 German language learning apps and this is the best one for my learning style, by far.

Erica Wendel - Learning German

The conducted research...

....has shown that the app is an ideal companion to traditional class-based curricula and increases the motivation for language learning.

Prof. Dr. Nicole Kimmelmann - University Professor

Exactly what I needed

Love this app. I do my Flashcards daily as a quick and easy German learning activity. And it is amazing to see how much vocab is to be learned by reading the fun varied little articles. Also love that I’m reading at all different levels depending on time and motivation!

Ryan Smith - Learning German

Please more of it

I love this app and its bite-sized stories which you can dip in and out of. Thank you! (I’m now looking for a Spanish and an Italian version!)
