A Review of LingQ Language Resources

At the intermediate stage of language learning, one of the best ways to acquire new vocabulary is by reading in your target language. As I’ve mentioned in many of my #clearthelist posts, extensive (and intensive) reading are both a significant part of my learning strategies for each of the languages that I’m studying.
