LingQ review: LingQ is a language learning platform that offers courses in over 20 different languages. The company was founded in 2007 by Steve Kaufmann, a polyglot who speaks over a dozen languages himself. One of the unique features of LingQ is that it allows users to set their own price for each language course. The platform also offers a variety of other language learning resources, including a blog, forum, and dictionary. LingQ courses are available on both web and mobile platforms, and users can access the courses offline as well. There are no tarrifs or subscription fees – users simply pay for the courses they want to take.
