Webpage review: It can be a bit confusing at first Are you trying to provide News Content or Skills? If the main value proposition is Skills; that should be the first thing I interact with; the news would be a good to have to keep me coming but should be secondary. On the Skills section, the course seems be divided into 3 parts Vocab, Grammar and Comprehension; actually I figured out they are not separate Tabs ( when I tried to click) but keep track of the Points; maybe the visual should be different. In addition for the Register button; there is one on Top, one on the Left and one at the Bottom of the course. I think it is a bit too much. Maybe having a floating registration button which appear when you pause browsing would be be better. Overall, I can see how this will benefit many people depending on price point.

Normally I understand what's going on but this time there is way to much lingo being thrown around. Can someone explain what the app does, as if I was your grandmother.

@leonhitchens hi Leon - sure thing. This is an English teaching service that uses video, audio and text articles from the WSJ and other business publications and adds learning exercises to the content. As news is daily and engaging it helps learners develop a consistent habit of learning. Hope that helps! Paul.
