Of course, our popular language garden and the busuu berrieswill stay the same. The most important changes have been made in the home area, the language area and the user profile. You will now be able to easily switch between different learning resources and to manage your exercises and corrections directly in your home area.
Your home area now not only shows your learning progress in all the languages you are learning, but also lets you go straight to an individual task, such as: vocabulary, dialogue and writing exercises, the busuu-talk and review test as well as premium materials such as pdfs, mp3s and voice recording. In addition to this, you can access further resources like our dictionary, games and live units. Just click on the corresponding icon or link.
At the bottom of your home area, we now offer you the possibility to manage your exercises and corrections. Here you can choose to view: ‘Others’ exercises’, ‘your exercises’ or ‘your corrections’. On the top right-hand corner of the table, you have the option to filter by language and choose whether you want to see uncorrected exercises of all our members or just of your friends.
Below this ‘Exercises’ box you will now be able to see all your different groups. Again, the filter on the top right-hand corner allows you to arrange your groups according to language.
The new design of the language area gives you an improved overview of your learning activities. The learning unit you are currently working on is highlighted (see picture below). To access the tasks and materials of the highlighted unit, simply click on the icons below, just as you would do in your home area. On the left-hand side of your language area you will also see a menu giving you access to the different courses and resources of your selected language.
As before, you access your user profile by clicking on your profile picture. On the left-hand side of your profile you will see your badges, friends and groups. In the middle part you will see your current learning units and the exercises box.
But enough of the theoretical explanations. The best way to experience our intuitive new design is to see it for yourself! We’re sure you’ll enjoy it as much as we do!
