Yikes, February is disappearing already - I’m hoping you’ll forgive me for not posting this on the 1st, what with the 5 Day Super-Intensive and so on…
Here was last month’s: SSi - state of play, January 2017
Currently available material:
As last month, PLUS 2 northern L3 lessons - limping into a result there, with each step making something different explode in the SSiBorg, but it’s a delight to have the first couple out there.
Welsh: more L3 northern in the very near future, and work has started on L3 southern.
Spanish: still waiting on the final change to the SSiBorg.
Asturian: still waiting on my recordings - weather allowing, I’ll make some headway on that this month.
Manx: not sure where we are right now, but fingers crossed just some recording away from new releases.
Dutch: Louis has just started in the new version of the SSiBorg, but needs to wait for Ifan to double-check that his initial work hasn’t broken anything…
No major changes I’m aware of - any comments, @Iestyn? We will be pushing on to our first commercially available 5 Day Super-Intensive probably at the end of March, and then we’ll see if there’s a market for more regular 5 Dayers, which might make a valuable difference.
Rolling out the 5 Day approach, as above - I’ve been absolutely delighted by the results, and really looking forward to taking this several steps further.
Still waiting on the larger parent company with the online school - but also talking about some possible similar work for educational provision in a small number of African countries.
Still waiting to roll out the videos - we’ll probably need to get the last major shift with the SSiBorg done first, so that we don’t make Ifan’s head explode.
Still working through the first quarter aim of publishing more stuff in Welsh, Spanish, Asturian, Manx and possibly Dutch. I’m happy that we’re moving along, and hoping we’ll do a fair bit more in the next couple of months.
Delighted with the 5 Day test run, and excited about the next steps there.
Plus still bits and pieces happening with advertising - no major breakthroughs as yet, but stuff worth testing, which is important.
Quietly confident - huge boost from the 5 Dayer, fairly hopeful that we’ll be publishing more regularly in the next couple of months (which will at some point mean more material for me to run some more carefree destruction tests on myself!), really looking forward to seeing what happens when we can start to roll out the videos, and keen to get the next couple of advertising tests out.
