First of all, the name itself (which is pronounced English Link) needs a little explaining. The first part, “English”, is fairly obvious since we teach English. LingQ is the name of our online learning system which you can find at LingQ.com. At LingQ you’ll study many different languages in a fun, community atmosphere. The “Ling” in LingQ comes from TheLinguist.com the people behind LingQ. Lastly, the “Q” is important because it forms the speech bubble in our logo and throughout our site and because it makes “lingq” sound like “link” (we think!) which is what our system does for you.
- we LingQ you to a world of real English content
