Loaded political sentences

Loaded political sentences

This is the third time in the past month that I'm finding loaded leftist political sentences in the quizes. You guys should really leave politics out of the learning environment. It's a huge turnoff. It makes you guys look very ignorant and extremist. One sentence for example was celebrating socialism. Very inappropriate to say the least.

Hi A, 

While I am sure it would have been possible to express your opinions in a more constructive way, we of course welcome your opinion on any of the topics we write about; with a strong preference for polite dialogue, that shows respect for our incredibly hard-working teachers and team, and our community as a whole.  

The aim of Kwiziq is to get people to understand each other deeply in a second language, and thus building relationships of real value.  As can be seen from your post, it can often be difficult to do this even in the same language; but this is our goal, and we're working hard to get there.  

You obviously have some strongly held views, and while I disagree with those expressed here (I am extremely proud of our team for the richness and diversity of the lessons they produce); perhaps I could challenge you to express your own in Spanish, keeping in mind the last sentence in paragraph 1, so that people on their way to C1 can learn from it (and agree or disagree as they may!)

We don't shy away from challenging topics, nor difference of opinion, but getting a message across requires civility.

 

This is a genuine challenge, I hope you find it worthwhile, at C1, the vocabulary should be simple enough.  I will ask Inma or Shui to take a look at your response.

Very best wishes.

Ok, so, somebody expresses a problem with a politically loaded message in a quiz (i cant see that question here), and your reaction is to challenge your customer (a learner of spanish) to express their own views in Spanish and have them proofread by the staff?! Lol this DOES make you seem quite condescending, just sayin

Granted, he did express his opinion in pretty strong terms (Americans do that sometimes), but your reaction seems to indicate that you just don’t need customers. Seeing this, I might not renew my subscription this year.

Hello A, can you post that question here? I haven’t seen anything too politically loaded so far, but im not C1. There’s a list of quizzes taken in the past on your dashboard. I’m just really curious right now.
