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
Hi Helen. It took a while to master this, but I found “voice Recorder” on my lap top and recorded some sentences. Then went to Soundcloud on the internet and uploaded the voice recording. Then find the share button at the bottom of the recording on soundcloud and copy the http address which comes up in bright blue (I use right click on the mouse and copy) Go to the ssiw page and paste. then watch and your recording will show, just as mine did.
Good luck. - One dy I’ll be able to say all of that in Welsh!
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
