Time to find out what the new surprise is...
The day has come to put online the work started 3 months ago!
Why a new design for the site ? Simply because it was necessary before starting some other projects to be due this year.
At any rate, things were done well, the site is ready for the years to come. Do you want to know why? More and more people use their phones and tablets to go online, and this phenomenon is rapidly increasing. How to make a website be enough responsive to be adapted for small, medium, large screens??? If you want to know the answer, reduce your browser window and you'll see it's magic!

The graphic style has been much improved as well, it's more dynamic and modern: the modules bar can be slided with your mouse, and even with your finger if you are using a touch screen.
After that, the organization in the menu was getting quite awkward. Exercises could be found in the "Lessons" section and vice-versa. So all that has been cleaned up, and it's much better now. The site is now structured in two main parts: "Japanese lessons" and "Culture". The former is sorted by modules now, and looks like JA Sensei. The later will be developped, too.
I have also created 4 different themes for the site in order to let you choose the one you prefer! Four are available now, but others will be added.
Notice that the site can be used with all browsers, but the aspect might change. I advice you to avoid using Internet Explorer as several major versions of the browser don't integrate new technologies and is quite sluggish sometimes..
There are still a few things that must be fixed, but I'm looking forward to working on new projects, so this new design will be an excellent basis for what comes on. Let me know if anything doesn't work well.
Japan Activator has reached a new level, it's a kind of rebirth for me. Since the opening of the site in 2006, you are more and more to follow the evolutions of the site and to trust us to learn Japanese. Your support is the bedrock of the site.
Do NOT forget to leave a comment here, we want to know your personal feeling about the new design!
