Episode 87: Two announcements as the calendar turns over to 2010.
A new Pronunican logo and a survey worth a 10$ Pronuncian coupon.
Hi again, and welcome back to Seattle Learning Academy's American English pronunciation podcast. My name is Mandy and this is our 87th episode.
Happy New Year everyone! I have two things I want to mention in celebration of the calendar turning over to 2010.
First, we have a fantastic new Pronuncian logo and new Pronuncian colors. I must mention the designer, Yuka Highbridge for her fun and insightful work. When you look at the new logo, do you see a single, happy, smiling face, or two profiles chatting with each other? It's really a clever optical illusion. Also, just before I was set to record this podcast, I saw a Tweet from Yuka saying her RestlessNapkin.com logo was chosen by TheDesignMag as one of the 30 Beautiful and Creative Logo Designs for Inspiration. I want to personally send great big congratulations to Yuka! To see more of Yuka's work, visit her portfolio at www.yukahighbridge.com. That's y-u-k-a-h-i-g-h-b-r-i-d-g-e.com.
My second announcement is that we really want to make Pronuncian the best English pronuncian site possible and we need your help! You can find a link to a survey from our homepage: www.pronunican.com. We want to know more about you, about how you use Pronunican, and what features and information you would like to see added to Pronunican. As a thank you for taking the survey, you'll receive a coupon for $10 off any purchase over $20. You can use it to purchase the MP3 sound files, a Pronuncian subscription, the pronunciation assessment through Skype. Use it on anything $20 or more that you would like from Pronuncian. If you've been looking for a way to help support the site, taking this survey is truly a helpful way to do that.
Don't forget, you can also follow us on Twitter at Pronunican to keep up to date on new content added to Pronunican as well as other interesting English bits.
So, that's all for today everyone. Go to www.pronuncian.com, check out our new logo designed by Yuka Highbridge, and click the link to take the site survey. You'll receive your coupon code at the end of the survey so you can use it immediately.
Thanks for listening.
