Points charged for lessons?

Hi! I’ve just noticed I’ve been charged 49 points for opening an Italian lesson. What does it mean? Are there paying lessons? I’ve never been informed I’d have to pay extra points for that lesson…

Hi Katy,
The overwhelming majority of lessons on LingQ are free, but we do have some paid Premium lessons at LingQ too. Some professional content providers offer their content for sale as Premium content. For Premium lessons button “BUY” should appear instead of “OPEN”.
