Why is the website called Lingopolo?

The name Lingopolo comes from two parts, "lingo" and "polo.  

"Lingo" means a foreign language or local dialect, and of course Lingopolo is all about helping you to learn the foreign lingo or language.  

The word "polo" is close to the word "poly" meaning "many or much", but ultimately the "polo" part is mainly there just to give the word "Lingopolo" a nice sound, and to turn it from a non-descript name like "Lingo website" to a proper noun, "Lingopolo".  

It's a bit like the way the names "Skype" and "Google" are formed; these names contain bits which mean something (Skype contains "sky", the blue stuff above you, and the name Google is based on "googol", a large number) but then they get tweeked a bit and turned into a proper noun, which becomes the brand name.  Similarly Lingopolo is simply based on the word lingo, turned into a unique brand name by the addition of polo.  

And as one of the Thai teachers pointed out, the word "ling" is actually the Thai word for monkey.  

So now you know why it's Lingopolo.
