Learning with Yolingo

“If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart”. - Nelson Mandela




At Yolingo, We feel our bite-size e-learning video lessons are a great alternative to face-to-face lessons with a teacher. Yolingo lessons (Yolingo Capsule Courses) allow beginner level learners to pick up the basics of a language(s) in an extremely time efficient and cost effective way. It’s no longer necessary to find the teachers, schedule lessons with busy employees and fork out quite a lot of money to do so…..just to learn the very basics of a language. With Yolingo, you can introduce the following languages to one individual, a team, a department or the entire workforce in a few simple steps - Chinese Mandarin, French, Japanese, Brazilian Portuguese and Spanish. Yolingo has collaborated with some highly regarded language teachers to simplify the learning process at beginner level. We don’t believe in total immersion learning for adult learners so all instruction and explanation in our courses is in English.

Our Mission

Our mission is to promote the importance of language & cultural learning in today’s globalised economy but to do so by offering a solution that a company of any size can implement with ease. Of course, English is the de facto international language but only 25% of the world’s population (including native English speakers) can hold a conversation in English. £50BN of potential revenue is lost each year by UK companies alone, because of a language skills deficit in their organisations. Even if your company isn’t trading in overseas markets or has no plans to, having the ability to communicate in a second language is without doubt very rewarding and can open up a whole new world and a whole new set of perspectives.Give Yolingo a try today!
