No, I haven’t lost my marbles! But at least now I got your attention, I think.
As you know, I have pursued a side project in German language learning since April 2008 called Deutsch Happen. On the basis of a more or less regular schedule I have produced different kinds of video lessons to test out teaching ideas and to support learners of German as a foreign language who might have no access to paid solutions.
For the past couple of months I have been experimenting with some strategies on how to grow my audience on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube and the results are good enough to take this to the next step: I am building a MVP.
Ok, first of all: this is not my usual field of writing on this blog. But as the boss is in Luxembourg, poking a bit our friends in academia and I saw and interesting discussion on tutors, teachers and income going on in the blog post on Lingueo, I would like to say one or two things about this.
Note: I served for four years in the army and therefore I will use some military jargon to make my points clear, so please bear with me. 😉
