About Lindie

Hello!

I’m a designer and language YouTuber based in Singapore. As a Third Culture Kid, I grew up in France, Pakistan, the UAE, South Africa and Japan. I started taking language learning seriously in 2009 after realizing the doors that they can open to new cultures, music, experiences and travel. I’m an unashamed follower of Jesus Christ and aim to motivate and inspire language learners to reach their fluency goals. Currently I’m focusing on Spanish, Mandarin Chinese and Japanese while keeping up my French, Korean and Hungarian. On the side, I’m dabbling in Malay, Vietnamese, Indonesian, Arabic, Norwegian and Urdu.

I enjoy public speaking and sharing language learning methods at various events. In 2012 and 2018, I was invited to give talks on language learning techniques to diplomats in the foreign service at the Department of International Relations in Pretoria, South Africa. I’ve also had the privilege of speaking alongside notable female polyglots at the annual Women In Language online seminar in 2019.

  1. Hey Lindie. Are you shipping your products to germany? Im in love with the notebooks btw

  2. Lindie,

    Thank you for inspiring me to carry on learning languages. Many years ago, I started with French, but felt forced to stop once I went to grad school. Even before that, I had tried Japanese, but also had had to drop out because of work. I feel like I have found useful tips to carry on, without more excuses. Thank you.

  3. Hey lindie I’m a big fan
    I was wondering if you did a university degree if so what degree did you do if you don’t mind me asking. The reason why I’m asking is I’m going to start university soon and I want to pick a language as my degree and your my role model so I was wondering what you did.
    Thank you
    Özge

      1. Nah, that’s fine. I’m looking forward to it! 😄 Just do it on your own pace.
