LingQ breaks down the barriers that prevent people from learning languages. We LingQ ("link") you to a world of authentic Chinese content and an online community of Chinese learners and Chinese native speaker tutors. We LingQ you to our powerful tools and resources. (We don't LingQ you to classrooms, text books and grammar rules.) Based on TheLinguist method.
