In my opinion, LingQ is the absolute best product on the market for serious self-directed language learners. FWIW, I've got a fair amount of experience language learning and teaching. I built and ran an English school in Taiwan for four years and later worked at a language learning startup. LingQ lags quite a bit technically and marketing (especially since the biggest blogger in the space is an affiliate for iTalki and had a spat with LingQ's founder). And despite the slow start and occasional JS-related bug, their product sense is second to none. I've personally found it to be several times more effective than free offerings like Duolingo or Anki (though Anki can be effective if you're very systematized) and basically a wash when compared with tutoring platforms that cost twenty times more.
Cheers @logicmason! We're working hard to improve the system for language learners like yourself :D

Pretty cool system!
This looks so cool. How do you discover new content in the app? Assuming you are adding new content all the time. Like when there's an awesome new podcast or interview to listen to/read — how do I find out about it, if it fits what I'm looking for?
Thanks @gidgejane :) We have a lesson feed that's constantly updating with content other members are learning from. There's also the different language forums where learners post cool things they've discovered. We're working on functionality that will allow us to suggest lessons based on learners' preferences and lessons they've taken in the past, too. Otherwise, content is tagged and so a search in the course library will give you a list of content you will enjoy. Let me know if you have any other questions. Cheers!
@jahrine Awesome thanks. I work at IFTTT so I'm thinking about IFTTT-y potentials for content discovery, of course! But all that aside it's very cool — just downloaded and looking forward to playing around with it. Congrats on the launch!
