Very interesting.

One way to avoid the problems of Safari with the frames is to make the frames from the css.

Everything displayed on the screen should be between <p> and </p> forming a paragraph. Each paragraph could be named and this way distinguished from other paragraphs.

Then in the css it is possible to create the frameset effect with data like the starting point of the paragraph on the screen, the number of lines, the lenght of lines and so on, for each paragraph.

exists), Reading the text either sentence-by-sentence or term-by-term (saved words shown with translation,

I have this installed and just love what i can do. However I am curious how it is used. So how much time do you
spend on translating, working with SRS (do you use the internal, Anki or?) and just listening/reading? Give some
examples of your "workout" schedule?

Regards,

Fredrik

Hey all! I really really liked the idea of this LWT project, and how much it can help people learn a language, so I wanted to help spread it myself.

While the steps to install it are indeed very easy, we can't doubt that they are intimidating for those unfamiliar with those interfaces, so I am hosting the system on my website as an alternative for those interested. As well as skipping the set-up procedure, by it being available online you can access it from anywhere, and I'll worry about updating it myself so individual users don't have to.

The set-up procedure is very very easy:

1. Create a log-in here: http://www.fluentin3months.com/wp-login.php?action=register& view=forum (a password will be emailed to you, and you can change it immediately. This is part of spam prevention for the Fi3M forum).
2. When logged in, simply type fi3m.com/lwt [a short link that's easy to type quickly on a mobile device], which will redirect you to http://www.fluentin3months.com/lwt.

That's it!

If any of you have already signed up for the forum on Fi3M, then you can actually skip step one :) I have merged the one login for the forum and lwt on my Wordpress database.

I had to hire someone to help me with the complex coding to make this work, but despite the personal expense, I will make this system entirely free. The only planned change I have is to put a fluentin3months banner on the welcome screen, as it is in the forums. But this will not be on the reading interface itself.

If you have any feedback related to problems with the interface on my site (not LWT in general), rather than replying here, please let me know on the Fi3M forum (same login used for LWT) here

Once enough people have tried it out from both this forum and my own, and I know it's working well, I'll announce it on the blog and hopefully many people will use it as a cool language learning interface. I will certainly be using it myself to improve my reading abilities!

Michel, as I said in reply to you on my forum, there are no real problems - there are final debugging of things we missed, before I announce the completed version on my blog.

Your site doesn't necessarily solve these problems, and it uses older versions of the software and you aren't clear about if it has the same issues I'm having or others.

As this is open source it's great that people have choices of how to use it, but please promote the advantages of using your system rather than vaguely saying mine has problems that yours solves, as it doesn't. And you don't host 1.4.3, you just link to it!

The only "problem" we can find on my current version is exporting vocabulary for study, but it looks very easy to solve, and will likely be solved very quickly.
