How do you feel about change? Scared? Excited? Here in Talk in French, change is awesome!
If you have been around here several times, you might have noticed that something’s different. Can you guess what is it?
Here’s a major clue: IT’S THE WEBSITE LAYOUT! Yes, we’ve rearranged a few things and now I’m very excited to share it to all of you.
There’s a French saying that goes, “on ne change pas une équipe qui gagne” (one does not change a winning team) which is quite similar to the English phrase, “if it’s not broken, don’t fix it”. The old website layout isn’t exactly broken either, but the community is growing, major things are coming, and so the old must go to usher in the new.
Ready to see what changes will be implemented? Well, here we go.
Some major changes here, a few tweaks there — all with the goal of making everything run faster and smoother. These include:
Sort of like this:
And I tell you, there is a massive wealth of free materials hidden in the nooks and crannies of this website. The new design should make it simpler and way easier for you to dig into those hidden treasures.
The second new thing that I’ll be introducing is an all-new store website
The Talk in French store was previously part of the main website. But for purposes of making everything run faster, the store site will now be separate from the main site. This will offer a hassle-free store experience for everyone. More features:
Discover the new store here.
BUT WAIT —
Please note that all these are still a work in progress. The main page will start out as rather simple at first but rest assured that more exciting stuff will be introduced gradually (and you’re going to love it!)
And oh, bugs. You might see a few every now and then but don’t freak out. Just drop a message and let us know about it (it would tremendously appreciated). Everything’s in a transition stage now so please expect a few digital creepy crawlies walking around while we’re moving house.
Same thing for any weirdness that you might experience in the website, both for the main page and the store site. Don’t hesitate to report anything to firstname.lastname@example.org or through any of the Talk in French social media websites. You’re an awesome rockstar if you do.
So watch out for more exciting stuff soon from Talk in French.
