How often do you listen with synchronized text?

Hello all,

I’ve been slowly (and inconsistently) learning Korean for years, and I just reached A2 in LingQ

Right now I alternate between listening and reading each lesson, and I can read 95% of the beginner material I’m working with, but listening comprehension is still challenging

I’m thinking about mixing in the synchronized text feature more often, so I can listen and read at the same time.

I’m curious how other people interact with this feature?

  • How often do you use it compared to only listening/reading?
  • Has it been a helpful stepping stone for listening comprehension?
  • Is there a particular learning stage (A1, A2, B1, etc) where it’s most useful?

Synchronized text is most helpful in early stages (A1 to A2) for improving listening comprehension. Many use it regularly but decrease reliance as skills progress.

I am at A1 (Polish, Spanish, Chinese) and I usually listen to my playlists (while eating) with synchronised text. You need already to know a lot of words, before you can listen and understand ‘everything’ without seeing the words. That’s my opinion. I’m happy the way I use LingQ at the moment.
