Ukraine war pauses Lingopolo development

Submitted by admin on 19 March 2022

The software development of Lingopolo is currently all done by the amazingly-skillful Alex. Unfortunately, Alex is based in...Ukraine. As you will know,  the war against Ukraine started on 24th February, and, understandably, the last day that Alex was regularly working on Lingopolo development was 23rd February. The war in Ukraine has of course been a horrific disaster for the people there. It has also paused development on Lingopolo.

Dutch words and phrases go over 10,000

I am pleased to report that the number of Dutch entries (words, phrases, dialogues) has this week gone over the 10,000 mark.

Dutch statistics

This is the first of the languages to do so, and marks an important milestone.

Basically, the more words and phrases which there are included, the better it is for students to be able to go way beyond the beginner levels.

Ability to see and reset level of words and phrases

Submitted by admin on 28 June 2019

I'm pleased to announce that you can now see the level that any word or phrase has reached and you can also reset that level.

You may know from FAQ about levels for the words and phrases that as you get to know words and phrases better (as shown by getting questions right) they are moved to higher and higher levels, and so are gradually asked less and less frequently.

Kickstarter campaign failed...but the Lingopolo vision goes on!

Submitted by Hugh on 13 November 2018

The Lingopolo campaign on the crowdfunding site Kickstarter has now finished. Unfortunately, it did not get anywhere near reaching the funding goal I set for it. I have many theories as to why that was the case: the principal one, I think, was overly ambitious target, with too few people already knowing about Lingopolo.
