Today was launch day! I checked everything and posted the news on Facebook and LinkedIn. I've also got to organise an Instagram page as well.
After all that was done, I prepared two Vocabulary lessons for Cities and Travel, and travel is one of my favourite subjects, so it was great to look at all the photos and dream of travelling again when COVID leaves the world.
I finished and recorded two more lessons this morning and sent them off to the video editor, who checks all the sound, watermarks and timing.
Then I did some cleaning up of the website and now I am going to write quizzes. Off to work I go!
Well, we are only one or two weeks away from launching Gramatica! The first five lessons have been researched, classroom tested, written, designed, filmed and edited, the quizzes are written, the certificates designed. This set of five lessons is called Essentials One.
Now I am working on Essentials Two, the second set of five lessons. When that is done, we launch. Not long now!
So I need a place to post all the Gramatica lessons. Facebook is not the right place and this website isn't designed to host lessons. So I looked around carefully and found Thinkific. Thinkific is a website where students can do Gramatica lessons, earn certificates, download all the learning tools they need, check their progress and chat with other Gramaticators around the world.
The Gramatica Academy page is not ready yet, but I'll let you know when it is!
Building lessons is hard work, but a lot of fun! It is wonderful to take all the lessons I have taught over seventeen years and change them from whiteboards in classrooms to slides on a computer.
So I have finished the Telling a Past Story lesson, and now I'm working on some other important lessons as well. I hope to have the basic building blocks of English as well as the four main tenses ready for launch.
After two years teaching at a local English college, COVID-19 caused the college's numbers to drop. As a result, I lost my job there.
No matter! Time for a new start with Gramatica. I'm going to transform all my lessons into online presentations and take Gramatica to the world! It's a VERY big job, but I'm excited. I'll keep you posted.
