How do I LingQ a word with more than one meaning?
When you open a lesson you will see all new words highlighted in blue. To create a "LingQ", hover on a new word and click one of the suggested hints. If there are no suggested hints or you don't find one you like, create a new hint by referencing the available dictionary resources. Your LingQs are now highlighted in yellow. To highlight a phrase, select the text you want and then hover on the blue highlighting which appears.

How do I increase my Known Words total?
As you study a lesson and LingQ new words you would like to learn, you can add words you already know to your Known Words by clicking the "Known" button in the new word popup. Or, click "I know all" if you know all remaining blue words. Also, as you review and learn the words you have LingQed, these words will also be added to your Known Words.
How do I learn words using flashcards?
If you "Check" a flashcard without looking at the Hint or Phrase and get it right, this is considered a correct response. Every two correct responses increase the LingQ status by 1 level until the word becomes "Known". However, if you first look at the Phrase and then answer correctly, the LingQ status does not change. If you first look at the Hint and the Phrase, this is considered an incorrect response and your LingQ status will decrease 1 level for every two incorrect responses.
