LingQ is called LingQ because language learning is about connecting, about creating links, to words, to meanings, to sounds, to people etc.
LingQ is a community and we have to constantly see how we can make it better by connecting better. If you want to have a conversation with someone in a language, post on their wall. Ask t hem when is convenient. If they are tutors ask them to create discussions that suit you. If they are not tutors, ask them if they want to become tutors.
Tutors are now creating content for us. When doing so it is useful to connect the content back to the tutor profile and to invite learners to come to discussions. I have tried to do that just now with my most recent content addition to the English library.
