We all have to promote the site. Unfortunately it has taken so long to finalize many of the features in LingQ and we still have work to do. But we also have to tell the world that we exist.
As to which languages, with me it is Russian and Portuguese. I will be listening to your voice a lot over the next few weeks.
I study Japanese too but mainly outside this site as the Japanese functions aren't ready yet.
I will be moving to Germany soon so I hope to use Lingq to also improve my German in the future!
As far as the other languages go (e.g Chinese, Russian), I am always tempted to start them but am trying to concentrate on the above ones for now.
My desire is to refresh up my French too.
Perhaps I can help people they want to learn German because I am one.
I use vocabulary section of Spanish even though I don't study Spanish. When I read Spanish newspaper, I use vocabulary section as a dictionary. In that way, I look for the meaning of the words and at the same time I create my vocabulary list. So for me, Linq is much better than The Linguist.
As for French learning, I import some articles from RFI
I will start reading "Le tour du monde en quatre-vingts jours" in the near future.
We can download the audio-files from LibriVox
You can find your interesting story from LibriVox. Please visit this site!
By the way, Yasuko, you´re right!! It´s just like British and American English. We have different accent and some different words and expressions, I´m not sure about the grammar rules. But normally the difference is very slight and you should not find big troubles.

I love Japanese and I'm studying it in this site. I'm not working at the moment and I'm foccusing in studying this language, because my objective is to live in Japan, working and improving as much as I can this language. In the future, I plan to be a Japanese translater.
But now I'am just an elementary student.
I believe on this site's method (reading, listening, and vocabulary).
Congratulations Mr. Steve. In a near future I plan to be a tutor of Portuguese and help your site with dialogues, if you want.
Congratulations Mairo, your website had motivated me a lot for not to abort my japanese studies.
Parabéns Mairo também. Seu site me motivou bastante a não desistir tão facilmente dos estudos de japonês.
Sorry my poor english.
