Lingopolo has succesfully moved home!

Submitted by Hugh on 7 January 2014

I am pleased to be able to tell you that Lingopolo has successfully moved home. Well, successfully moved to a new, and hopefully better web host.

I normally don't write in this blog about the behind-the-scenes technical side of Lingopolo, because I prefer to focus on the things which are new and on improved functionality or content. In this case I will make an exception, because it does have an important bearing on Lingopolo: the reliability of the website.

Redesigned home page

Submitted by Hugh on 15 December 2013

I am pleased to announce a newly designed home page for logged in users. And this is more than just making things look a bit prettier. In addition to displaying the number of words known, when you login, you will see the number of phrases you know, together with the list of how many phrases there are at each level.

Below shows my current Thai progress with Thai. How are you doing? Whatever your level, keep pressing on! And hopefully the new look will help to encourage you as you see your current progress every time you login.

Happy 1st birthday to Lingopolo!

One year ago today, on 29th September 2013, Lingopolo was born!

This is perhaps a good time to reflect on what has been achieved so far. I say so far, because there are many things I still want to do with the website to make it even better. But as I pause and take a look at what has been achieved already, I must admit that I am very happy with the progress so far toward the vision I have for Lingopolo.

Already the website has over 1700 words, over 500 phrases, and over 20 dialogues (as of today there are 1701, 557 and 22 respectively).
