Lingoscope is an online platform for high school or university students who are passionate about learning languages and exploring different cultures. Our monthly edition allows students to publish their work in different foreign languages or related to different cultures. Lingoscope's pen pal programme also provides an opportunity for students to connect with fellow students from across the world and offers a chance to apply language skills to real-life or learn about a new culture through personal interactions.
Lingoscope was first envisioned by Christine Ling. Having connected with a pen pal from Germany, she was due to participate in an exchange trip there over the summer. Although the pandemic dashed these plans, she kept in touch with her pen pal. After witnessing the added difficulties of learning a language during remotely as well as the inability to have exchange trips during the pandemic, she launched Lingoscope. Through Lingoscope, she hopes that students can take their language skills beyond the classroom level by connecting with pen pals or publishing their work.
Lingoscope is a global language platform, welcoming high school and university students from different language and cultural backgrounds to share their passion for language learning. Our mission is to provide a safe, accessible online space for students to publish their works and interact with each other. Working with students all over the world, we hope to serve as an additional resource for language learning as well as provide an alternative to traditional exchange trips during a pandemic.
