Summary

Lingolia's a very handy grammar reference for several major languages as well as Esperanto, but it's definitely overpriced and would be much better if it included audio for all lessons.

Depth
Depth: This is 'content' richness. How comprehensive is Lingolia and does it take you far in terms of levels, or is it more suited to low level/tourist learners?
Uniqueness
Uniqueness: Is Lingolia innovative or is it just an imitation? Does it have a unique selling proposition (USP) that makes it stand out among competitors?
Quality
Quality: Overall product quality indicator that covers everything from video/dialogue clarity, authenticity, explanations, and effectiveness.
Cost
Cost: Is Lingolia acceptably priced and how does its pricing compare to market competition?

Lingolia could best be described as a grammar course or reference for several major languages (German, Spanish, French and English) and one conlang (Esperanto).

The site’s basically structured like a documentation site with navigation for different grammatical topics down the side.

It’s essentially an online textbook.

Lingolia covers quite a lot - it’s very comprehensive in what it offers with extensive topics and subtopics.

But the major drawback is the lack of audio accompanying the lessons.

There are some audio components (for reading/listening exercises), but for most lessons, it’s just a wall of text.

Because of this, I just find it absolutely overpriced.

While I’m not a fan of conlangs like Esperanto, it is a unique addition to see in a paid resource.

There are definitely better alternatives for the languages that Lingolia offers.
