I never thought to use the forum until about 6 months ago when I needed responses to a few questions I had. It occurred to me that there are many others who would do just like I did: get into a set routine of going through the course (only). It might be interesting to have a pop up window when people first enter the course for the day: new postings in the forum, trick/technique of the day, new phrase to learn, new place to visit, new food to try, etc. - whatever, something different and dynamic. This would add an element of surprise to the course and may help to get people more involved (motivated) in places like the forum.

That would be great Steven!. I sometimes login to check the forum and participate, and that pop up window is a great idea! Saludos!

I love the forum. I am doing my lessons while waiting for my flight. I have done a lot of activity this morning while in Taipei, Taiwan and the points just don't register. I just dont want to miss a day without doing something Spanish.

I agree with Steven that a daily pop up would be great. It would require some coding from the RL computer people but maybe if it took the place of the Rocket Fuel email, it could free up some time for this project. I really wish the RL web site had a built in conjugator. I am at a point where as I am working through a new lesson and encounter a new verb, or even a noun that is derived from a verb, I take a little side trip over to a conjugation site to learn more about the word. It would be nice if this could be done right inside the RL site. I like the Onoma.es site but it quit working for me for awhile. I used to like SpanishDict.com but there are so many ads there that they slow my computer down and sometimes cause Firefox to crash. But I digress. I too love the forum. I really appreciate the help that Cristian and Ricardo give us, and I enjoy chatting with the rest of you as well. Speaking of which, what happened to Patricia? I haven't seen her post in awhile.

If you type the infinitive of the verb in Google, one of the top returns will be a site with the URL "conjugueur.reverso.net/...". Clicking on that link will directly open a page with all the conjugations of the verb. It's fast. Given that Rocket Languages is so proactive, I am confident they will eventually implement some sort of daily pop up. Technically this isn't difficult - the time consuming part is creating the database which feeds the pop ups. And what would be really cool is if they made it contextual based on where you are at in your language learning experience.

Hi Steven. Try dare or dire (Italian verbs) Doesn't always work when there is an english equivalent. But still helpful

Wow, I haven't come across that. Thanks for the heads-up. There are two solutions: 1) Keep a window open to the general page: http://conjugueur.reverso.net/conjugaison-espagnol.html 2.) Install the (free) software directly into the web browser (they just advertised this on the site - interesting. I haven't tried it)

I just open another tab and have the dictionary just available for me.
