If you don't see it, please make sure that your payment went through:

  1. If you paid with a credit card, use your online banking service and check whether there's a pending transaction from
  2. If you paid with PayPal, please check your email - PayPal sends an automatic message each time you make a payment.

If you see the transaction on your side, but not in your account on, then probably the payment system has not yet notified our website about your payment. Very rarely it may take up to 60-120 minutes. If 120 minutes after your payment your subscription is still not activated, please contact us.

If the subscription status is active, but you still see the message that you have reached your limit, please try using another web browser. Obviously, you will need to log in again.

Can I use your website on multiple devices, for example, my computer and my smartphone?

Absolutely! As long as your device has an active Internet connection, you can use our website on multiple devices.

Note that you are not allowed to share your login credentials with other people.

What is the advantage of the annual subscription?

Starting from November 14th 2023, buying annual subscriptions Basic or Premium has another advantage.

As long as you opt for the annual payment, the subscriptions Basic and Premium are automatically converted into a lifetime subscription of the lower level, if not renewed for the next year.

Basic becomes lifetime subscription Starter when expired after 1 year
Premium becomes lifetime subscription Basic when expired after 1 year

If you decide to take advantage of this offer and do not want to renew your annual subscription after the first year, please cancel it at least 7 days before its renewal date.

What happens during the monthly meetings with the website founder?

Monthly meetings are organized for the users with an active premium subscription.

The meeting is your chance to give me feedback. If something on the website doesn't work for you, just tell me! You can also request new features and discuss the suggestions coming from other participants.

The meetings are conducted online on the third Sunday of the month at 9AM (Pacific Time).

The language of the meetings is English.

If your premium subscription is active, the link to join the meeting will appear in your account 24 hours before the meeting.

What if you are unable to attend the meeting but still need a new feature?

In this case, please record a 2-5 minute video explaining what you want. Provide as many details as possible. Upload your video to a file-sharing service (YouTube, Dropbox, Google Drive, etc.) and send me the link. Your video will be played back to the participants.

If you can't record a video, you can also prepare a detailed message with your proposal.

If you have an active premium subscription, you can publish the link to your website on Your website can be a blog, a YouTube channel, a social media profile, etc. is a high-authority site with more than 350,000 monthly visitors. Such a link will enhance your website's credibility and authority in the eyes of search engines.

To publish your link, follow these steps:

  1. Log in to the website.
  2. Click on My Account and then on Update my account.
  3. Enter the link to your website and the link text (both fields are required).

The do-follow link to your website will appear on the page Our sponsors and will stay there for as long as your premium subscription remains active.

The page Our sponsors has a built-in pagination with 10 links per page.

The links are sorted by the length of the billing cycle. If you buy an annual subscription, the chances of your link being on the first page are higher.

You don't need to backlink to our website.

For now, we don't have any categories. We may add them in the future.

Note that your website should comply with Google Publisher Policies. For example, if your website doesn't respect copyright laws, it will be rejected.

Do you accept guest posts?

If you have an active premium subscription, you can publish guest posts in our blog.

As you may have guessed, certain conditions apply. :)

The content of your posts should be somehow related to language learning or linguistics. We don't accept any unrelated content. No exceptions.

You can publish a maximum of one guest post per month.

Your post should be at least 250 words long and provide some useful information to the reader.

It's okay to promote your services or products, but your post should be relatively interesting to read, even if the reader doesn't use your services or products.

Each post will be individually approved for publishing. If your post is not accepted, we will provide feedback on how it can be improved.

Your post can include do-follow links to other websites. See the section Can I publish the link to my website on for additional requirements for links.

If you add links, make sure they will work for as long as possible. For example, if you post a link to a limited-time offer, your link may stop working in a couple of weeks. In such a case, please add a redirect to some other page of your website. All the broken links (including 404 pages) will be completely removed.

Once your post is approved, we can allow only minor edits.

After your first post is published, the subscription fees become non-refundable. In other words, once your post goes live, you no longer qualify for the money-back guarantee.

If you have a weekly plan, you can publish your first post only 3 weeks after the date you first subscribed.

We accept the posts only in the following languages: Chinese, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish.

If you want to publish guest posts, please contact us before subscribing. We will need to see an example of your post to confirm that it meets all the requirements.

How secure is my payment?

The security of your payment is very important to us.

We don't store your payment information on our website.

The data is sent over a secure HTTPS connection to our payment partner, where maximum protection of financial data is ensured.

I bought a subscription, but didn't receive any emails from you!

You didn't receive an activation code?

It may happen for several reasons:

  • Our automatic message with activation code was blocked by spam filters. It doesn't depend on us. We would love to, but unfortunately we can't control all email servers on the planet Earth :).
  • Occasionally, people make a typo in their email address.
  • Your mailbox may be full and doesn't accept incoming messages. Please test your email before you contact us.

For security reasons you can't use an account with unconfirmed email.

If you haven't received an activation code, please contact us. We will be happy to activate your account manually and/or update your email address.
