Supporting a web relaunch is making me think what a language learning website should look like in a perfect world. Give me a couple of hundred thousand euros and I’ll get my act together 😉

For the time being I’m enjoying the new ideas out there. My favorites are interactive videos that speak to you (which is your win) when you click them in the right place. It has that playfulness we all love, like tickling someone and they squeal for you. I like “Save the words” by OUP, which unfortunately has selected words that are useless for most of us. Plus, of course, the word you pick would have to say its name, right? But get a load of the great interface :-D. Just imagine a website that has all the exercises behind buttons like those… Cooooool. Ach, who will give me the money to do all I want to do?
