      Learning with Texts vs LingQ opinions
      Almost everyone thinks Learning with Texts is a great alternative to LingQ.
      It's free. It has mostly the same functionality. It enables you to read text with close to instant lookup of words. The word grading functions in the same way as LingQ. The other alternatives are mostly just rote memorisation with spaced repetition which is a very minor feature of LingQ.
