Today I've seen a Facebook ad for LT, and I opened the link. So I think it's still working :D

Nice! My head developer is trying his hand at marketing, and his self-imposed rule is to start with a small amount and not spend more until we're getting that back in lesson sales.

Yippee - my favorite Korean teacher just joined the site! Also, I saw 4 instant lesson teachers online yesterday (Russian, English, Spanish) so it's picking up some momentum. :D

Thank you kindly. I'm just wrapping up writing my textbook, so I've begun to put more time into growing the site again.

It's time to make the site grow a bit...
Hi all,
Some of you are aware that I’ve been really busy writing a textbook for over a year now, and haven’t had much time to do anything else. So the website just kind of stayed on a plateau. Membership increased dramatically, but activity was level. Well I finished the final draft, and the book is our development team’s hands. That means I now have time to devote to growing the site!

Library for Reading Tool
When my writing started to taper off a while back, I hired a couple people to hunt down material for our library. They’ve done a great job, but we could really use your help. Do you know of any language learning text with audio or text with video that we could use? We have to be sure that posting it won’t violate copyright. Eventually I envision a large community of people posting enough free use material so that even more learners will be attracted and the library will thrive.
That’s it for now; focusing on the Library. I’ll be posting about other parts of the site in the near future. Toodles!

Textbook on what? Or are you not allowed to say? Also any chance of you commenting in https://forum.language-learners.org/vie ... 14&t=11121 since B2 languages is your thing? xD Been waiting to see you post there.

Tagalog grammar. I saw that thread; I'll try to think of something useful to write but it's hard to follow so many excellent posts :lol:

I am often just plain thick, but I can't see your library on your site. :oops:
First thought of course is librivox.org. Gutenberg generally lacks audio/video, I think.

You have to be a member to see the library. Thanks for the tip!
