Multi-choice answers now all match correct answer length

Submitted by Hugh on 4 May 2015

I have tweeked Lingopolo so that now multi-choice possible answers are all same length. Previously there was the rather silly situation that the correct answer might be a single word, and yet the possible answers might include an extremely long phrase. No more! Now, if the answer is one word, the possible answers will all be one word. If the correct answer has, say three words, then all the answers suggested will contain three words. This means that the multi-choice experience is a lot more sensible. And a little bit trickier!

"Understand spoken Thai" tag line

Submitted by Hugh on 23 March 2015

I have changed the Lingopolo tagline to "Understand spoken Thai":

 understand spoken Thai

This is simpler than the old tagline (which was "Learn Thai through listening-based learning"), and it also focuses more on the Lingopolo benefit that you learn to understand spoken Thai, rather than on the method, that it is through listening-based learning.

The old header was as follows:

Improved "quiz results" page

Submitted by Hugh on 20 March 2015

I'm very pleased to announce the addition of an improved "quiz results" page.

There are two very helpful additions:

  1. the "Recording" column. With this, you can of course listen again to the word(s) you got wrong.
  2. the "Learn" button, where available. Not every word or phrase currently has a "Learn" button, but many do. Where this exists, it will take you directly to a lesson to learn the word in context.

I hope these little additions help you to focus on the words you are currently struggling with.

In context lessons

Submitted by Hugh on 9 March 2015

I am pleased to announce the introduction of a new type of lesson called the "in context" lesson. Basically the "In context" lesson will teach you:

  • the single word (e.g. "dog")
  • all of the examples which use that word (e.g. "the dog and the elephant")
  • all of the vocabulary you need to understand the example sentences (e.g. "and", "elephant")

This is wonderful, because it enables you to effectively practise a single word.
