Gabriella: Listeners, your lesson pages are completely upgraded! New designs and tons of new features.
Gabriella: Welcome to Innovative Language.com Sunday News! I'm Gabriella and I'll be hosting today's Sunday news with the founder of Innovative Language... Peter!
Peter: Hi everyone! Peter here.
Gabriella: This Sunday News lesson is all about our biggest update - the new lesson pages and - how you can use them to take control of your language learning
Peter: Listeners, If you haven’t seen the new lesson pages...
Gabriella: ...You need to go to our site right now!!
Peter: laughs We’ve just rolled out our biggest update yet... So go test it out!
Gabriella: And if you’re wondering what’s new with the pages... They’re redesigned and look ten times better.
Peter: It’s not just about the looks, Gabriella. We’ve applied a lot of feedback, that you...
Gabriella: ...the listeners...
Peter: ...have given us. This is our gift to you in the form of this huge update.
Gabriella: So with this layout, you can now navigate the lessons a lot easier than before!
Peter: You can do it on any device. if you’re on the go, just stream the lessons with your smartphone.
Gabriella: You can also take control of your learning with the new features we’ve added.
Peter: quickly follows up We’ll reveal some of them in a second
Gabriella: And the new layout makes learning as easy as 1,2,3... literally!
Peter: Alright, Gabriella, I bet the listeners really want to know how they can master language with this update.
Gabriella: Right! Let’s get to it. We’ve broken the page up into 3 super simple steps.
Peter: Step 1 is the introduction. This is the most important part of the page.
Gabriella: Here, you’ll find the lesson player, lesson notes and download links.
Peter: And it’s the first thing you see - so you instantly jump into your language lessons without waiting.
Gabriella: Press the play button to start or download audio from the list below the player.
Peter: Oh, and this brand new media player was built purely for the lessons.
Gabriella: Especially the video lessons. They didn’t load well on the old one at all.
Peter: Believe me, Gabriella. We had LOTS of feedback about that one.
Gabriella: With the new player, just sit back and enjoy the high quality video lessons.
Peter: And with audio lessons, you can now speed up, slow down, or skip parts of the lesson...
Gabriella: ...So if a dialogue is too fast for you, just slow it down.
Peter: Listeners, Try out any audio or video lesson right now and test our new player.
Gabriella: Now, while you’re listening and learning, head over to Step 2. Lesson materials.
Peter: Here, you’ll find your favorite Premium Tools that go with every lesson
Gabriella: Remember the Line by Line Transcripts, Lesson Vocabulary with Audio, and the Grammar List? They’re all here.
Peter: On top of those, we’ve also added the romanization switch.
Gabriella: I missed this one. What is it, Peter?
Peter: Gabriella, learners of all levels will love it. It lets you hide romanization of the lesson vocabulary for a more challenging study session.
Gabriella: I think this is HUGE for languages that use a native alphabet! No matter your level, you’ll find a dialogue and vocabulary display that’s just right for you.
Peter: And it makes it easier for listeners to review grammar and vocabulary while listening to the lesson.
Gabriella: That’s VERY important for visual learners, like myself, who want to read while they listen.
Peter: Yep. By doing you actually learn better! Now, speaking of review... The Review section is Step 3, the final step of our powerful learning system.
Gabriella: So, here, we also make sure you master it all easily.
Peter: In step 3, quiz yourself on what you’ve learned with Review and Writing Quizzes...
Gabriella: ..And drill the lesson vocabulary with our smart Flashcards.
Peter: Once you’re done with the lesson, mark it as complete and we’ll track your progress.
Gabriella: That’s it. You’re ready to move to the next lesson with the series list on the left.
Peter: This... is the 1,2,3 approach we used to make our sites easier to use.
Gabriella: Listeners, to get a complete rundown of your new lesson pages, check the video in this lesson.
Peter: Yep. The video is at the top of this lesson page. Check it out to learn more!
Gabriella: Oh, and don’t forget to leave your feedback in the comments section below...

Hi everyone,


Thanks for your great feedback. We'll look at all issues you pointed out.

As for the video, one tip is to watch it with Google Chrome. But we're working on improving it!


Thanks a lot for your participation and patience!

(I really love the new audio/video player, though; in general, the new layout is great.)

When I first saw the new layout (before watching this video), it took me a while to find the lesson note PDFs. Maybe I'm easily confused, but I also think it wouldn't be crazy to put the lesson notes under 'Lesson Materials', which is where I first looked.

Still seems a wee bit buggy. Tried the speed control on the audio and the stream became corrupt and had to restart to get it to straighten out. Also, the audio portion of the video had a distracting amount of static. Hopefully, you'll continue to tweak the site as you always have before.
