Dear LingQ team,
I want to propose that you make the Beta languages free to study. I don’t want to dismiss your financial interests but rather tell you why I think that this would be a great idea:
Free access to Beta languages will attrack new users who, once convinced by the software, might opt for paying and studying a bigger language like Spanish, German or French.
New users will help to enrich the offer of LingQ and eventually will help to improve the library for Beta languages. Catalan for instance has barely any content on LingQ and languages like Romanian need an update.
As it does Glossika, a free access to minority and small languages helps to preserve them. If LingQ adds indigenous and endangered languages, this point becomes even more important.
What do you think?
