How much AutoMagic

Hi Deborah

It freezes at one minute in…I can’t get beyond Dw i’n moyn!
I have it on Amazing so I would have hoped I could do more than that. Just tried it again and the same thing has happened.



I’ll flag this up to our Tech Developer and see if he can shed any light on what’s happening

Could you explain a little more about what happens when it “freezes”? Do you mean that the whole app just stops working? Or do you see a timer going round and no progress?

When you try to start it up again, does it continue a little from where you were, then stop working? Or does it set you back to where you were the time before?

Are you using the video feature? If yes, you should turn that setting off for now, as video is a highly experimental feature that may cause problems. (If you’re not using video, we’ll have to wait and see what else tech support can do to help your issue)

One person has suggested that refreshing the screen usually fixes it if that happens.

Hi Both

I can confirm that this happens with the video feature and without.
Deborah, information for your Tech guy:

  1. I have tried with chrome, Firefox and Microsoft Edge
  2. I have cleared the cookies and history from my laptop.

Guessing that no-one else is getting this problem on the southern version?

Kind Regards

I occasionally experience ‘screen freeze’. It last for about a minute then goes back to normal. as suggested by others I will refresh the app when this happens.

I’ve had a look at your “learner record” (where your progress is stashed) and there was a field missing… I haven’t seen that before, so I’ll have a look into how that happened.

In the meantime, I’ve adjusted the app so that it is able to proceed even when that field is missing. Give it another go. It should start from “I want” but should continue onwards after that. Just shout if that didn’t do the trick!

Hi Lewie

That seems to have done the trick. Thank you very much.

Kind Regards

I’ve done nearly 25 hours but there’s no new content yet.

Hi Rob, In terms of Challenges what do you think you’ve got to in your 25 hours?

I believe it to be only the content you would get in the old challenge 1.

Rob - I assume you mean that the only content currently available on AutoMagic is all 25 of the challenges from Level1 of the new course?

I can’t say for sure but I believe that to be so. Seemd to be a long wait for any further content.

Thanks Rob. I’m enjoying the chance to go back to many of the basics. I’ve only done 3 hours buy I’ll keep plodding on.

Hi I’m wondering the same thing. I’ve done 37 hours of automagic now and at first it was adding new words and phrases every session but i haven’t learned anything new for a while now. At first I thought maybe they’re just doing a refresher and then will progress again but it doesn’t seem to be progressing. Have I reached the end? Will they be adding new material and if so when? I don’t really want to pay for a learning course that isn’t advancing my learning so I may have to pause my subscription for the time being but if anyone could give me an indication of when it will start progressing again that would be very much appreciated :+1:

Yes, it sounds like you’ve reached the end of what’s currently available on automagic, but further material is still available on the standard method.
You might find posts in this thread explain more SSIW - Automagic

I know the Tech Team are currently working on getting more recording prepared and loaded into AutoMagic, so it’s not far off, but I can’t give you an exact date as yet. In the meantime, as Siaron says, if you go to the main website - SaySomethingin - and click on ‘Learn’ up at the top, you’ll see the alternative learning methods.

Ok, thank you guys. I hope it’s not too far off, I really feel like I’ve benefited enormously from the automagic format with it’s flexibility I think it’s an amazing learning tool, just bummed I can’t continue with it for now
