Beautiful new course page design

I am delighted to be able to present to you a beautiful new course page design.

New course page design

Here are all the things to look out for:

Improved course layout

I am pleased to announce improved course layout pages. For example, the Themed Thai Courses now look as follows:

courses layout now

Basically the idea is to display a lot more courses at a glance. This will make it easier to select the course you want without having to scroll and scroll.

For comparison, here is the old layout:

Mastery Scores and High Scores constantly displayed

One of the small but powerful changes recently has been the addition of your Mastery Scores and your High Scores at the top of the page whenever you are logged in.

This is a very useful addition to help keep you motivated to improve.

It will show your overall score for Thai, and then that value broken down into the your mastery of words and of phrases. Finally, if you are within a lesson, it will show you what your mastery of that lesson is.

Can you beat your high score?

Fantastic new prices!

I'm very pleased to announce some fantastic new prices for Lingopolo!

The 1-year membership drops a stunning 40% to only €4.95 per month (from €99 to €59.40 for 12 months).

And the 1-month membership drops an amazing 50% from €19.95 to €9.95.

In addition, I'm pleased to announce new 3-months and 6-months membership options.

So, if you've been hesitating up until now because of the cost of Lingopolo, there has never been a better time to invest in your language ability.

The new membership plans:

Courses

I'm very pleased with a recent addition to Lingopolo: Courses. A course is basically a twinned pair of:

  • a vocabularly lesson (e.g. Vegetables)
  • an examples lesson (e.g. Vegetables Examples)

In the vocabularly lesson you will find just the words on their own. In the examples lesson, you will find all the example phrases which use these words.

Photos

If you have been using Lingopolo recently, you cannot possibly have missed the latest addition: gorgeous, beautiful, stunning, funny, lovely photos!

Many, many of the words, and quite a few of the phrases, and even one or two of the dialogues now have photos, for example:

photo on "bear" page

And now that many words and phrases have photos, the summary page for each lesson gets its own slideshow of photos from that lesson:

Lessons directly integrated with words, phrases and dialogues

I am very pleased to announce that lessons are now directly accessible from their related words, phrases and dialogues.

Phrase tabs

New Thai-English dictionary and other dictionary improvements

I'm very pleased to announce the addition of a Thai-English dictionary, together with many other dictionary improvements.

Firstly, the Thai-English dictionary. This is something which I've had in mind to add for a very long time, every since the creating the English-Thai dictionary. It's now available and, as a student of Thai myself, I find it very interesting to look at an alphabetic list of words all beginning with the same letter.

Total number of words and phrases known now displayed

I am pleased to announce that Lingopolo now displays the total number of words and phrases known (the "All Known" statistics): 

Home page 3 columns

Previously, only the number of Words Known and separately the number of Phrases Known was displayed:

Home page 2 columns

Lingopolo now mobile friendly

I am pleased to announce that Lingopolo is now mobile friendly.

In the not so distant past, if you tried to use Lingopolo on a mobile device, this is what it would look like:
