LingQ has been lying to me : 'You know 3349 chinese words!'

October 08 at 04:00

I found out today that LingQ includes words of all statuses (new, cant remember, not sure etc) in the vocab count in the top banner.

I don't know 3349 chinese words. I have 3349 LingQs, and 651 lingQs that I have set as "known words".

This is misleading, and I wonder if it is deliberetly so to make users feel good about a rapidly increasing vocab count?

I hope this can be addressed - either make it obvious that this number is a user's lingQ count, or change the number to accurately reflect a user's progress in their known vocabulary.
