The new Financial Year has just started and with it came some changes to Updated Words. Once again we've changed our look a bit to make it even more appealing to our clients. A brand new website will bring you a much better experience and a more professional look.
Please feel free to browse and leave us a message with your queries or suggestions. We will be very please to assist you.
But there's more to this brand new look.We've added a new Glossary. You can now browse through our Idiomatic Expressions Glossary. There you will find all those Idioms that have been discussed in our online activities this year.
Our Online Activities also suffered some changes. We received suggestions from some participating readers and we took them on board. It is very important for us to know what our clients and readers think of our work and what do they believe could be done to improve it.
Today we start a new model for our Activities Online. Instead of just focusing in a theme and discuss it, we decided to create some change and discuss several themes. On the first working day of each month we will release the Theme of the Month, that will be the subject for all posts of that month. We will continue to post a word or expression on every Tuesday (Sydney time) for our readers to comment and then on Thursday's (Sydney time) we will publish the correct answer. However, instead of doing it the way it has been done for the last 6 months or so, it will be done according to the Theme of that particular month. Once again, we advise our readers that they can always suggest a theme for the incoming months. Our Monthly Polls will also continue with more interesting subjects for discussion. The Monthly Polls however, are not affected by the Theme of the Month and will be chosen randomly. Readers can also suggest polls.
But there is a brand new activity for all our Forum and Facebook members/readers. Language Happy Hour was an activity suggested by one of our frequent readers. In this activity people can interact directly with us in Real Time. Once a month, a Member or Members of the Updated Words Team, will be online answering people's questions. These questions are subject to the Theme of the Month. The activity will be available for a period of one hour and people can participate both on our Facebook Page or Forum. The date and time of the Language Happy Hour will be announced at the beginning of every month on our Facebook Page and Forum.
We hope you like the changes we've made for you and we will be waiting for more excellent suggestions, like the ones we have already received. The Updated Words Team would like to thank all participants in our online activities, it wouldn't be possible without you.
Thank you very much.
