Service Breaks Down Language Barriers Using Comics

LingoZING is an app that uses comic books as a way to easily teach languages

LingoZING is a language app using comics as the springboard for learning. While “Pow! Bam! Zap!” may not need any translation, the word format and cadence in comic books is perfect for those wanting to learn a new language or overcome language barriers. LingoZING is an application that carries a selection of translated comic book titles where you can listen and record pronunciations so it serves as an audio book as well. You can listen to readings by voice actors in your primary language as well as in the language you are trying to learn.

If you want to share your progress you can post your recordings on social media.

Right now six titles in English, French, and Brazilian Portugese are in the pipeline for Spring 2017 if LingoZING’s kickstarter campaign is successful. Hopefully, we can expect to see LingoZING at a ComicCon in the near future.
