@agabudeeb Please excuse the slow reply from our side. We have been so busy creating new content and other exciting things that forum responses have taken a back seat for a bit.
Sorry to break it to you regarding Reading and Listening sections for German, but this is not on the immediate roadmap. We do realize that reading and listening skills are vital to learning a language and we are working to get you that. But you won't be seeing this feature in the next while.
That being said, there are other, super exciting features coming over the next 6-8 weeks, which will ask you to do more than just type in a word! So hold tight and when it's out, let us know what you think!
Hi @Aleks, made you wait a while - sorry about that. One of the exciting things is that we have developed exercises! These have been released for the EN>RU course, currently on iOS only and for new users in A/B testing. Currently, we are just testing the format which is why these exercises are only available for one language pair at the moment. If you speak any Russian though you are welcome to sign up with a new account and try your luck with A/B testing and see how you like them! That, of course, goes for all of our other users as well ;-).
Hey @Gabriel, I hear your concern. Like you, I am learning German with Lingvist and would really wish to see reading and listening exercises be part of the learning experience. Bringing good-quality reading and listening content into the app is a complex and pricey task (and requires answering a few legal questions, too) hence the waiting time.
As you might have heard, we have recently launched in Taiwan and Japan, and this is where a lot of our resources are going at the moment. Many tasks are losing priority battles during sprint plannings, even though we recognise the importance of these tasks and are very keen on bringing it into the app.
There are a few things you can do in the meantime
We have a Stacks folder here on our forum, where we collect "good third-party stuff". There are two conversations with links to reading and listening resources. Have a look:
Thumb up those resources, which you find most useful, and share your own findings, if you have any.
We are very lucky to have an enthusiastic group of learners, sharing their findings on this forum.
