The purpose of today's post is to give away some LingQ points. Are any of you who are reading this post, active members of the aforementioned language learning community? If so, you are probably aware that we can give points to other members now. Since I am receiving points for my submitted content that is used by other members and I am not
What do people do with points at LingQ? Well, first of all, you can use points to pay for having your writing corrected. A member of LingQ can submit writing to be corrected, which is paid for by points. The length of the writing will determine exactly how many points are needed. Second, points are needed to sign up for conversations with tutors. The conversations take place through Skype. A one-on-one conversation for 15 minutes requires 500 points to be paid up front. And finally, points can be used to purchase some content in the library, although most content is free and some languages don't have any content available for purchase. But it is an option now. Recently, there are even Linguaphone lessons available in the LingQ library.
So, if any of you are members of LingQ and feel like you could use some points, please leave a comment and let me know what your username is at LingQ. Also let me know how you plan to use the points. If you are wanting to sign up for a conversation, I'll need to give you 500 points. But if you are wanting to submit writing, maybe you don't need as many points. So try to figure out how many points you need and put that in the comment as well.
If there are more than a few people asking for points, then of course I won't be able to fulfill all the requests, so please try to understand.
Thanks for reading!
