    Archive for June, 2013 Goes Native on the iPad and Android

    July 5, 2013: is now working natively on iPhones, iPads, Androids, and all the laptop and desktop browsers we have tested.

    Does that mean it will work for you on your iPad? Probably, but we still aren’t making any promises. There are lots of different software versions out there, and we haven’t tested them all.

    Try the free lesson in your favorite language, or simply try your regular study plan to be sure.

    Puffin Is No Longer Needed

    Flash browsers like Puffin are no longer needed. In fact, Puffin no longer works on an iPhone or iPad. If you were studying with Puffin on your “iDevice,” simply switch to Safari instead, and, thanks to our new back-end software, you will have a much better study experience.

    Clear Your Cache if You Have Problems

    One customer reported being unable to get the sound to play on his MacBook using Safari 5.1.9 on Mac OS X version 10.6.8. When he cleared the cache in his browser, everything worked fine.

    If you previously used and the audio played well, but now it does not, try clearing your cache. If you don’t know how to do this, do a Google search of something like “Clear the cache in Safari,” or whatever the name of your browser is.

    You can also use your browser’s built-in help function by typing in something like “clear cache.”

    iPad Log-in Problem and Work-Around

    On some iPads, it’s impossible to log in because you can’t scroll to the right part of the screen. We will fix this. In the meantime, if you have an iPad, click here and you will be able to log in. Then navigate to the home page manually and select your language.

    Please let us know what kind of device and browser you are using and what does—or does not—work for you.

    Take the 30-Day Language Learning Challenge!

    Are you traveling to another country this summer? If so, you’ll have a LOT more fun if you learn to speak a little bit of the language.

    What Can You Learn in 30 Days?

    Thirty days is not enough to take you from knowing nothing to being conversational. But you may already know some of the language, and even if you are a complete beginner, 30 days IS enough time to learn how to be disarming, plus learn greetings and travel phrases that will make your trip much more fun.

    Compliments Will Get You Everywhere!

    Obviously, you like the country you plan to travel to, so why not learn to say that in the country’s language! We teach you that right away.

    Start Learning Right Now

    Pick the language you want to learn from the list above, and try our free lesson right now. Then make the commitment right now to study for 30 minutes before noon and 30 minutes before 5:00 p.m. for the next 30 days. You’ll be amazed at how much you will learn.

    If you really want to put your study in high gear, make sure you watch our video instructions too.


    Where Did the “Study Links” Go?

    June 5, 2013:  If you aren’t logged in, you may notice that the “Study Links” category which used to be on the top left of each language home page is not there.  So where did it go?

    We made this a logged in only feature at the suggestion of one our customers named “Ray” (thank you Ray).  You can still get to these pages by logging in to your account.  If you aren’t already a customer you will need to become a customer and get your account set up first.

    You Won’t Learn Much by”Looking” at the Lessons

    We want to remind all our customers and potential customers that you won’t learn much by looking at the pages you will see when you click on “Select Your Next Lesson”.  To learn quickly with you need to click on “Start Studying” from your language home page.

    Of course everyone should watch our video instructions. They will help you learn a lot faster.
