5/5 for the concept. This has great potential for study and learning, especially alongside other methods. UI needs improvement. The audio should pause while you're looking up or adding a new word. And sometimes I get two overlapping audio clips playing at once!0/5 for the "trial" There's no way to get a real feel for the app before you buy with the current setup. Your 20 free "lingqs" get used up almost instantly. Thankfully the developer offered me a free week and I'm now a believer :-)

Thanks for your review! We're aware the free trial is quite limited and we have plans to expand it. In the meantime, I'm happy to provide you with a longer trial period. Email me at tiagor@lingq.com to get set up.

This app has lots of content, but it's not organized well, and the interface is, unfortunately, simply unusable. It's difficult to "continue learning", i.e. pick up wherever you left off, whether it be in the middle of a lesson, or between lessons that are grouped together in a course. It's also difficult, or perhaps impossible, to identify whether you have already completed a lesson or course. A for the idea, C- for the content and organization, F for the UI/UX, F overall.

I'm sorry LingQ has been difficult. We're constantly working on making our interface more intuitive for new users. Focus on reading and listening to lessons, clicking blue words, and creating LingQs. Soon you will find a process that works for you. Email me at tiagor@lingq.com if you want more tips on how to make the most out of LingQ.

Horrible unit. Free version is nonexistent. Stay away. Can barely go 5 minutes while using free version. Then everything is asking to pay. Super aggressive with pushing premium. I can't even try it out to see if paying is worth it, and I'm not paying if I can't see the app working. Super confusing UI, I have no idea where I am supposed to go or what buttons I'm supposed to push. Super confusing and clunky to use. Hard to follow UI. I heard this was better than duolingo but it was a lie.
