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 crowdfuding 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.

Ability to switch off the high-score sound

Submitted by Hugh on 13 August 2018

If you are doing a lot of questions and quizzes, you will probably have noticed that there is a little ping sound which plays when you reach a high score.

I'm pleased to say that now, if you would like, you can turn off this sound.

You will find this in your profile, when you click on My account. There is a checkbox where you can choose whether the sound is on or off:

Checkbox "Sound for a high score"

Quiz type selection is now remembered

Submitted by Hugh on 23 February 2018

I'm pleased to announce that the Lesson Quiz type which you select will now be remembered and used until you change it again.

The quiz type is set in the Lesson Quiz tab. What this means is that if, for example, you select to do the Reading quizzes, all the quizzes will be Reading quizzes until you select something else.
