I’ve recently begun reading on Lingq using my phone. For whatever reason, when I do this, it appears to be doubling the amount of “words read”. For example: Today I have read 3 lessons (generally around 2000 words) but it’s telling me that I’ve read 12k words today.
I don’t know why it happens, but if you look at each lesson you can see how many times you have read a lesson.
My experience is the reason the number is inflated is the system marks a lesson as being read more than it was. For example your 2nd or 3rd probably shows you read them more than once. I don’t remember it happening on the 1st lesson.
After reading a course ( a collection of lessons), I verify the read count. The count can be editted so I make adjustments. I have never had an undercount.
