A few weeks ago I was googling language blogs to help me learn French. I found The Linguist blog and from there found LingQ.
I’ve only been on here five minutes and I’m amazed! What an incredible resource!
I’ve wanted to learn a new language ever since I was a child. When I was ten I had to drop out of school when I became severely ill with a chronic medical condition. I’m 22 now and I’m still mostly stuck in the house and unable to work or get a “proper” education due to my illness. (It’s a “medically unexplained” condition, so there’s no help or treatment unfortunately.)
I can see how a website like this would help anyone learn a language, but for people like me who are too ill to learn away from home… I’m so excited I’ve found it!
I won’t be keeping this place to myself for long, that’s for sure. I know a lot of very ill people who really want to learn, and I’ll definitely link them to LingQ.
The internet at its best
