Mina-san,


Be sure to watch the new Video User Guide by clicking the link in the post! There will be many more of these to come for other sections of the site. Let us know what sections you would like to see, and what you think of this one!

I believe the "Cool Biz" concept was introduced last year by Koizumi, the Japanese Prime Minister. He attended a few meetings, sans tie, to make his point about energy savings. I'm hoping this "trend" continues in Japan. Wearing blue suits and skinny ties in 90 degree weather with high humidity is crazy.

Yes, for me Nathan also starting speaking before the video, but I just left and entered in again and it worked without a problem. I expect the whole thing just needed to load.

haha By the way, I love these hybrids!

Liz-san, Mark-san,


It was actually a bug in the software that has been fixed. We'll have a fixed version up soon I'm sure! :grin:

Nice job with the video guide guys! :grin:


I saw the same thing as Liz - voiceover began maybe 15-30 seconds before the actual video began playing. I'm not sure if that's what Katrina-san saw, but I didn't see any problems trying Firefox 2.0 Alpha on OS X 10.4.6.

Nathan-san,

Yes, just a bit too quick!:wink: It's not bad, though. :smile: My problem is that I always expect everything to be immediate!!:shock:

The video guide rocks!:twisted:

Mina-san,


Thanks, glad you liked the video! Hopefully listeners will be able to get more out of the Learning Center now :grin:


Liz-san, sorry about that... I guess I'm too quick to speak :wink:


Katrina-san, can you give us some more info on what happens when you try to play the video? Is it just a blank screen?

The Video User Guide is really well done and just what's needed to push me a little bit further to sign up for a membership. :) The learning centre looks just awsome, very structured, clear layout, nice features. You should consider packaging it all in a product suit and sell it to other language learning sites, haha. I started listening to your podcasting about a month ago and am still catching up. Congratulations for all the hard and good work you have done so far and are still doing. Keep it up and I will keep listening and learning and have a few minutes fun every day.

hey guys,


just started listening this week and luuuuuv what you guys are doing. peter, you're such a natural and everyone in general is *so great at the dialogue; it makes me miss japan a lot b/c the simulations are soo natural and real. best of luck to you all with this project--- it's much-needed!


ps- 2 snags: i can't seem to get the video guide up from today; i'm on firefox/mac os. and also, you guys mention there's a lot of jlpt material on the site; is there a "jlpt corner" etc that has all relevant links/info organized on the site?

This reminds me of university in Canada. You'd wear a little t-shirt for the sweltering heat outside and a jacket to deal with the freezing air conditioning inside. We always thought it must make people sick to walk back and forth between such extremes all the time.


Do people in almost all companies wear ties? Even tech companies? It's so expensive to dress up all the time.
