Innovative Language Learning in the Bangkok Post - Thai WordPower and WordPower Lite

Saturday, June 6th, 2009

Today Graham K. Rodgers, of the Bangkok Post, covered various Thai language and lifestyle i-phone applications in an article titled iPhone apps for Thailand: a mixed bag.

In the section titled Database, Graham covers Innovative Language Learning’s Thai language i-phone applications (Thai WordPower Lite and WordPower (Full) versions):

“Word Power Lite is designed for someone trying to learn or improve their Thai skills. A daily word is downloaded automatically. The device displays Thai characters, phonetic characters and a translation. When the Listen button is pressed, a female voice reads out the word (or phrase).

…Each daily word can be added to a word bank. This also allows use of flash-cards to assist learning. There is an extensive information page that explains the philosophy behind the app and the learning method. The Lite version was $0.99 (35 baht) and users may upgrade to a full version at $9.99 (355 baht). This contains a bank of 2,000 words sorted into categories: enough for a fair level of communication. Word Power is by Innovative Language Learning who have well over 200 apps listed at”

Thank you to Graham and the Bangkok Post.

“The Bangkok Post is a broadsheet, English-language daily newspaper published in Bangkok, Thailand, and Database is a weekly information technology section, inserted on Wednesdays.”
