I want to downgrade since I’m not using LingQ right now, but I feel like I might start using it again in a few months. Will all of the LingQs that I’ve created stay until I come back?
I came back to Lingq after a 1year plus break last week and all my lingqs were still there ! So unless they changed things you should keep all your lingqs, you simply won’t be able to make any new ones.
Why you should keep old material. It’s realy better to have a fresh start without “ballast”. (heavy material on the outside of a big balloon, transporting people)
23 days ago I started my journey with “lingQ” and I collected 5000 words (English) in this short time.
Before I started this I read a lot of books an also I listened hundred’s and hundred’s hours to your language, to acquire the right feeling.
When I was in school and I should speak English, I have had a lot of trouble with the right pronouncation. With the daily listening to the BBC Radio it goes much better.
Please don’t give up !
I also started with the french language 3 month ago.
I hope (one day) I can understand the daily news easily.

During the downgrade process, you will be offered to activate the Vacation plan. With the Vacation plan, you can keep all your data, stats and imports for as long as you want for $2 USD/month.
Damn, that is such a shady thing to do. That’s basically blackmail. I don’t want to start all over again if I ever come back. They really let me down.
Its not blackmail dont be ridiculous. Youre taking up space on thier servers costing them money and you want to do that for free until you feel like coming back. $2 a month is next to nothing, dont be so entitled.
Well they should at least give you the option to download your data then and re-upload it if you come back. The right to do so is actually part of EU data portability laws which LingQ must comply with as they offer their services to customers within the EU. Soupy_Soupo I suggest you email Lingq and ask to retain your data or send you a copy and see what they say. They did keep my data for free when I went on a break.
