Dutch words and phrases go over 10,000

Submitted by admin on 14 December 2020

I am pleased to report that the number of Dutch entries (words, phrases, dialogues) has this week gone over the 10,000 mark.

Dutch statistics

This is the first of the languages to do so, and marks an important milestone.

Basically, the more words and phrases which there are included, the better it is for students to be able to go way beyond the beginner levels.

Ability to see and reset level of words and phrases

Submitted by admin on 28 June 2019

I'm pleased to announce that you can now see the level that any word or phrase has reached and you can also reset that level.

You may know from FAQ about levels for the words and phrases that as you get to know words and phrases better (as shown by getting questions right) they are moved to higher and higher levels, and so are gradually asked less and less frequently.

Kickstarter campaign failed...but the Lingopolo vision goes on!

Submitted by Hugh on 13 November 2018

The Lingopolo campaign on the crowdfunding site Kickstarter has now finished. Unfortunately, it did not get anywhere near reaching the funding goal I set for it. I have many theories as to why that was the case: the principal one, I think, was overly ambitious target, with too few people already knowing about Lingopolo.

Ability to switch off the high-score sound

Submitted by Hugh on 13 August 2018

If you are doing a lot of questions and quizzes, you will probably have noticed that there is a little ping sound which plays when you reach a high score.

I'm pleased to say that now, if you would like, you can turn off this sound.

You will find this in your profile, when you click on My account. There is a checkbox where you can choose whether the sound is on or off:
