Example phrases Thai lessons

I am extremely pleased to announce the addition of Example phrases Thai lessons. Each of these phrases lessons contains phrases around a particular theme. For example, there is the Animals example phrases lesson, which has phrases all of which contain one or more of the words from the Animals lesson.

Redesigned home page

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.

New Thai lesson: Adverbs of Time

I am pleased to announce the addition of a new Thai lesson: Adverbs of Time.

My level of Thai is beginning to creep above the beginner level, and I'm more and more wanting to express myself with adverbs of time, things like now, before that, tomorrow, yesterday and so on. This lesson pulls together all those wordsin one place.

Now around 300 French recordings!

New lessons: Relatives and Telling the time

I am pleased to announce two new lessons: Relatives and Telling the time.

Both of them are pretty tricky to master, because Thai operates very differently from English.

Lingopolo French is born!

I am pleased to announce, that from 29th October 2013, Lingopolo is now available for French!

Lingopolo has steadily been teaching Thai for the last year, but now the moment has come to add French to the family.

Now over 2500 Thai recordings, with more and more sample sentences

I am pleased to report that Lingopolo now has over 2500 Thai recordings (2547 as of today: 1793 Thai words, 755 Thai phrases and 22 Thai dialogues). This is already around 500 more than when I blogged about the statistics less than 2 months ago. In percentage terms that's around 25% more.

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).

Over 2000 Thai recordings!

I am pleased to say that Lingopolo now has well over 2000 Thai recordings!

Indeed, at the moment of writing there are 2091 Thai recordings, consisting of 1611 Thai words, 481 Thai phrases, and 18 Thai dialogues.

I unfortunately missed the moment when Lingopolo passed the 2000 Thai recordings mark, but I am pleased to also announce a new Thai Statistics page to be able to more easily see exactly how many recordings there currently are.

For the record, here is a list of the progress so far:
