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:

New quiz type: Automatic

One of the recent additions is a new quiz type: automatic.

What is it? How is it used? 

New quiz type: Multi-choice

I am very pleased to officially announce a new quiz type: multi-choice. It's been around in an early form for about a month, but now I'm finally happy with the way it works, I'm happy to announce it.

Example of selecting the multi-choice quiz type:

New Dialogue Word Lessons and Dialogue Phrases Lessons

A recent Lingopolo addition which I am pretty pleased with is the introduction of Dialogue Word Lessons and Dialogue Phrase Lessons.

New Thai lessons: Musical Instruments, Pets and Toys

I'm pleased to announce 3 new Thai lessons:

Known words summary

I am pleased to announce the introduction of a "Words Known" and "Words known by level" summary for logged in users:

The Solar System, on the farm and birds

I'm pleased to announce the addition of three new Thai lessons: the Solar SystemOn the farm and Birds.

Now there's a funny collection.

New Summary section

I am pleased to announce the addition of a new "Summary" section to each word, phrase or dialogue. This presents, what I think to be, a beautiful summary of what the recording is all about. Strictly speaking it doesn't add any information which isn't already available on the page (with the tiny exception of actually stating how many parts the literal breakdown contains); the page already contains the English, the Thai, and the Literal Breakdown. However, it does add a subtle but important usability aspect to the pages.
