Founded in 1929, Assimil is available in nearly 100 countries and has sold millions of learning methods in 13 different source languages.

The Assimil method makes learning foreign languages intuitive, in the same way as children learn their native language.

Children hear people talking every day. They assimilate the sounds and their meaning, repeatedly try to reproduce them before beginning to form their own sentences.

The Assimil method replicates this process, adapting it to teenagers and adult learners. Learning is progressive.

The brain acquires language best when it is immersed in meaningful, relevant and interesting content. This “input flood” is the most effective way to accelerate language acquisition and achieve proficiency. Without a lot of exposure, fluency simply isn’t possible.

LingQ always finds you content just above your level so that you’re never overwhelmed by new words — but you’re also never bored out of your mind reading children’s stories.

The LingQ reader keeps a database of and highlights every word you know and every word you’re learning. This makes reading a book, that was once a seemingly overwhelming task, a lot easier and more enjoyable.
