Eight years ago we started Gamesforlanguage.com, a site to learn German, French, Italian and Spanish playfully, with easy games and a travel story. When traveling to countries, where we didn’t speak the language (Japan, China, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary), we used popular travel guides and self-teaching programs and apps to learn at least the basics. But finding and practicing the basic words and phrases that we needed was not that easy or convenient. Neither the printed travel guides nor the online programs and apps were practical. This gave us the idea for Lingo-Late: An easy way to learn a a few language essentials.
