Suggestion for small change on lesson overviews.

May 28, 2009, 07:48 PM posted in General Discussion

Wrenching myself from the rambling discussion on tea (who would have thought tea was so controversial!), here's a suggestion for the lesson overviews which might make them more intuitive. At the moment, they look like this:

Dialogue     Exercises

Vocabulary  Expansion

Reading top-to-bottom, right-to-left, this feels unintuitive, not least because the exercises contain much of the expansion material. Might they not be better off last, so the order could be as follows?

Dialogue    Vocabulary

Expansion  Exercises

This seems to make more sense: first the dialogue, then an overview of new vocab and of supplementary vocab, then expansion exercises that use both new and supplementary vocab, then exercises to test you on the whole lot.

This is fairly minor stuff, I know, but it might help in terms of intuitiveness. Any other thoughts?
