The New Website!

by

First off, I’d like to thank you all for the positive responses we’ve gotten so far! There are a few new features that I’d like to mention. First off The overall simplified design.

We took out some of the clutter to make space for new content. The minimalist design allows users to focus on the content.

The second thing I’d like to mention is the responsive design. The new site will respond to the size of your browser window. So if you are on your computer, your tablet, or your phone the site will scale and adjust accordingly.

Lastly (for now), some new upcoming ideas and features are in the works and we will be adding them shortly. Things like a phrase of the week on the home page and more videos to help you learn to speak the language along with us.

So again, please keep checking back and we’ll be sure to keep up with the content!

Thanks – Chris Duenas
