I keep meaning to start with the speaking practice section but each time I make a start I’m flummoxed by all the pinned threads (some of which I’ve unpinned), and then I can never find the list of sentence starters.
How about a single pinned thread along the lines of this one:
Then pull any useful info out of the other pinned threads and put it into this single one.
Lock it to stop replies because of discourse’s habit of taking you to the end of the thread when you load it.
Yeah - maybe even just linking in there to the other explainer threads… good thinking. To be honest, I’m still not sure the best way to make things findable/indexible in Discourse, but this seems like a step in the right direction…
The issue with linking to the other threads is Discourse takes you to the bottom of the new thread, then you have to scroll to the top to get to the useful info (there may be a user setting to turn this off in Discourse - but people new to the forum are unlikely to have found it)
Having a single page that gets you up to speed with the 4/5 step process without having to visit other threads would be very useful.
Almost treat this single topic as a distillation of all the learnings and knowledge gathered in the other threads - e.g. so people don’t have to read through whole conversations to learn they should include “currently doing level” in their subject line
That worked @Sean-O. I clicked on the ‘reply’ link and it opened up SoundCloud and I heard your answer. Usually we post a link found in ‘share’ in SoundCloud and it appears like Holly’s, so I’m not sure what you did differently, but at least you received your blue ‘Answerer’ badge
Thank you to those involved in moving my post to the right thread! And so chuffed to earn a green badge too
It’s amazing how much you learn from listening to and working out the answers you get from others. As they’re recordings, you can go back and listen to any bits you’re not sure of - challenges are good! The experience also flags up things to watch out for in real time chats.
And with the wonderfully supportive Forum family, you know that someone will come to your aid if you stay stuck, or be there to encourage you… or just rejoice in your progress.
