Hi, I'm Lindie, a multilingual YouTuber, language coach and UX designer.

My background

I was born in South Africa, and grew up in Pakistan, France, the UAE and Japan, and now I’m in Singapore. I’ve always been fascinated by the possibilities that language offers to break down barriers and connect with people. As such, my passion in life is learning languages, and sharing my methods with others.

What I do

Since 2009, I have immersed myself in languages and developing efficient learning methods. Since then, I’ve learned over 10 languages to varying levels, appeared on international news in Hungarian, Korean, English and Afrikaans, spoken at multiple conferences, coached over 50 people in language learning and mindsets, and am currently designing Kaards, a language app

I share my language process and progress on YouTube to an audience of over 310K+, and run a Monthly Language Roundup newsletter to over 3,900 subscribers. On the side, I coach language learners on time management, resources and productivity.  

Thanks for stopping by, and feel free to say hi!
