Does entering the code “MONDLY” when signing up no longer get one a free lifetime subscription with access to all languages?

Apparently not, according to the discussion. I'll keep an ear out and share if it comes back.

I paid for a lifetime pass early on, but I hadn't touched Mondly in God-knows-how-long until I started researching for an essay on language learning in AR/VR earlier this year...

There's a deal on a bundle of FIGS stuff from the for dummies range over at Humble Bundle. A set of ebooks with audio, all 4 languages for $15.

Never used for Dummies myself, no idea what they're like.

Many thanks Cainntear, I've just purchased the $15 US ($19 Canadian loonie) set - crazy amount of material across the four languages! Offer still on for another six days.

I expect many forum members would consider the [language] for Dummies series to be pretty lightweight, but I really like them because they are fun and that is why I learn languages, though the Ithkuil for Dummies is super-challenging.

For those members who might be avid collectors of vintage language-learning materials, there is an offer on eBay for a complete set of the Cortina Brazilian-Portuguese course and some other materials. As a reminder, digitized copies of the course are freely-available via the Yojik.eu website. Accordingly, this offer would be of most interest to collectors.

Anybody knows where the best place to post this?
I am wondering if I should make it into the forum topic instead. I am asking, because I want to trade a language learning key?

There's a deal on a bundle of FIGS stuff from the for dummies range over at Humble Bundle. A set of ebooks with audio, all 4 languages for $15.

Before this Bundle that I, as a shopaholic, bought, too, there was a Bundle with Transparent language learning keys
https://www.humblebundle.com/software/l ... e-software

I have Spanish key that equals three months of learning Spanish on the platform. I also have keys for French and German
I want to swap it to some other language. Could be: French, Polish, Italian.
If you are unfamiliar with the platform, like I am, sort of, then there is a 14-day free trial there! https://transparent.com
I tried with Chinese and it was fine.

So I was wondering if anybody has unused Transparent language key for French, Italian or Polish AND is willing to exchange their key for Spanish or German or French with me.
NOTE: Language code must be redeemed by 3/20/2020.

It is also fine if somebody has something from another platform, just so it is for three months of learning and the trader content with the swap.


I hope I am not breaking any rules with this post :D
