Help getting started

A real noobie question.

I just joined at the basic level and put the Android app on my smart phone.

But I can’t figure out even the basics. I wanted to start with early lessons, so I click on “Library” and then “Beginner.” But there are only two lessons: Greetings and Goodbyes Part 8 and Eating Out Part 7.

So where are parts 1,2,3,4,5,6???

In the dropdown under Beginner I can choose Most Popular, or Random. Default Shelf is always checked.

This can’t be that hard, I’m obviously missing something. Any pointers to something like using Lingq for Dummies?

So start with Greetings and Goodbyes (At least, that’s what I did). Then there should be a “Show Collection” button or something along those lines.

Greetings and Goodbyes is a bit better to start off with, I think, but if the other interests you just go ahead with it instead.

@John1997 - If you click on any part of a collection like Greetings and Goodbyes, a popup will open showing the first 5 lessons of that collection.

I should also point out that in the Library on the shelves like the Beginner shelf, the system only shows 1 random lesson from any collection. However, clicking on that lesson opens a popup containing the first 5 lessons and includes a link to the complete collection.

All right! I think I’m beginning to get it

Tack sa myket!

I did not quite understand the issue of “status” and lessons.

If one is a free member, does it mean that one can have 5 lessons and that’s it? i.e. If one wants more than five lessons, one has to start paying membership fees? Or is it 5 lessons per week or per month for a free member?

Free members can currently have an unlimited amount of lessons. However, they are limited to 5 privately imported lessons. This means you have free access to all of the content in the Library, but you are limited to how many lessons of your own you can store on the server. Paying members have no restrictions in this regard, and can import as many private lessons as they like.

“Status” will either be shared or private. Free members, although limited to 5 private lessons, are still able to import and share lessons in the Library, since these benefit everyone.
