Hi, I’m Lindie! This is my blog with language learning tips, resources, and general musings and life updates.

I’m passionate about exploring the intersections of languages and design, and do so through product design work for prominent language apps, as well as design and UX coaching online. On the side, I share my love of languages and design at various international language conferences and design events.
