  • Why did I pay review

    I was not happy when I purchased the Turkish Course last year as much of the text is illegible the audio crackly and the whole course is very old, in spite of my complaints Langocity refused to refund my money, I now find that the whole course is available on Public Domain by the original creators of this course Namely FSI language courses and they say on there homepage Welcome to - the home for language courses developed by the Foreign Service Institute. These courses were developed by the United States government and are in the public domain. This site... More...

  • Language learning Lie

    Langocity is a scam. I purchased this software for my company since we are working in Korea to learn Korean. The TEXT files that are on the disc are copied pdf files from the internet and are not legible. The AUDIO files that are supposed to be on the disc are not there, the audio portion is completely blank. There are no people on the video chat network ever to learn with. This program was a scam and rip off, do not buy it or trust this company or you will regret it. I am filing a complaint with the better business burea and the FBI since the disc was mailed it makes it a federal scam and... More...

  • Don't waste your money

    This is by far the worst course I have ever seen. The course consists of a number of poorly scanned pages that make up the booklet and a host of MP3 files. The files do not correspond to the booklet and there is no guidance to take you through the course. The style of teaching is through repetition, a teaching style that is archaic and relatively ineffective. The course dates from 1989 and fails to embrace any modern teaching techniques. The information on the website is misleading and is contradictory to the foreword of the notes supplied. The foreword in the course notes states... More...

  • Total Scam

    All what is included with this purchase is an old book dating back to 1992 written by the Foreign Service Institute (i.e. not written by Langocity), and audio files which don't accurately match the book's content. The ebook is just a scanned copy of the book, so the quality is terrible. The audio files are just digital versions of tape cassettes, so the quality is also terrible, and poor compression is used resulting in the total download being over 500MB. The book is just a textbook, so is useless outside of of a classroom setting. The content is also too old for it to be of any... More...

  • not impressed

    i ordered the swedish comprehensive and, as mentioned by others here, i got some mp3 files and a seriously outdated pdf. i chatted with customer service today and was told that the old documents were not scanned OCR but as images - which is why the quality is so poor (and why i can't read them on my mobile device). she said they have no plans to re-type the information - i let them know that it would greatly improve their ratings... they're basically making money off of an old government system that the government probably doesn't even use anymore. they probably bought the...

  • Swahili Level One Course

    I ordered the Basic Swahili Course and got an obsolete US Government manuscript (dated 1973) and a set of MP3 audio files. The instructions in this old manuscript make it plain that it is not intended and not useful for home study. LangoCity is selling obsolete, public domain material available from our federal government at ( Although there is nothing wrong with the material, if I knew that is was just an old set of words and audio pronouncement files without...

  • Out Dated and Poor Quality

    I couldn't agree more with what others have already written. I was extremely disappointed in the product. It looks as if someone photocopied a manual from the 1970's and the audio files are also a terrible quality. Actually the date on the cover page is 1967. For a company that has a pretty slick website and claims to offer an approach that is not just memorization, their entire approach is incredibly old fashioned and out of date. They even used such new age double speak as "an holistic teaching method". This is hogwash. One look at the downloaded PDF file and I knew I... More...

  • langocity 1970's Mandarin Language Course and BBB CASE#: 22201286

    Concerning Langocity's Mandarin One Module Course: Langocity neglects to say on its website that this is a course circa 1970 or thereabouts. Although it may still be effective in this day and age of language learning; Langocity's Mandarin Course is extremely bland and boring. This course is available Free at the Foreign Service Institute's website: Below is BBB complaint about the non-refund that went unanswered by Langocity. I purchased one Mandarin Language course for $39.95- I double clicked the button so I was charged twice for... More...

    I purchased an instant download French course, and the file was corrupt. The company only offers "support" via email which consisted of an anonymous mailbox emailing me the same instructions that I can easily access on the website. Which isn't helpful because the file itself is corrupt. I asked for a phone number and did not receive one. I looked it up on, and the only option is to leave a voicemail, which I have not yet received a phone call from. When I asked for a refund via email, I got the response that "we cannot offer a refund." So I have... More...

  • Language learning CD

    I purchased a language CD from this company, what I received was a CD with some PDF files and some sound files and you have to open up the pdf files and try to match what is being said on the sound files to the pdf's. They are of extremely poor quality. They advertise that they are the software used by the state department for training their staff but I can't believe that a government agency would purchase such a useless CD, it is not even a program for learning, it is just pdf's and itune files, totally useless.
