- The link to LingQ is an affiliate link. It doesn’t cost you any more, but if you upgrade, I get a cut of the profit. If you don’t want to use my link, just google it.
- Amazon links are also affiliate links. Again, it doesn’t cost you more, it just helps me out by giving me a cut of the profit from any sales gained after you click my link.
- I was not compensated in any way for this interview. I was not paid by LingQ or Steve Kaufmann, nor did I pay them for anything. This was simply a collaboration between two YouTubers who love learning and teaching languages. If I gain a few subscribers or get a few clicks on some affiliate marketing or he gets a few more customers to join LingQ, it is a happy little accident. RIP Bob Ross.
