Finding out about Live Stream Events

Patrons receive notifications on our Patreon page. Log on to your patron account regularly and check for messages.

YouTube subscribers who clicked the bell button to receive all notifications will likely be notified through YouTube. If you are not a subscriber yet, you can subscribe to Snap Language and Snap Language Learner.

Registered users will be notified through our website. Register here. Note that we limit the number of announcements through the website, so you may not be notified of all upcoming events.

Instructions for Patron-Only Exclusive Events

Some events open to patrons only. As a patron, you will be notified through Patreon. Sometimes you will also receive special links to materials used during the events. Check your Patreon account regularly so you do not miss any informaiton.

Setting up YouTube Reminders for Upcoming Live Streams

When you see an announcement for a live stream, you should add the event to your calendar. YouTube will notify you when the live stream goes live. Here's how:

  1. Log on to to your YouTube account.
  2. Follow the link to the even (for example, if you see it on this website or on YouTube).
  3. When you see the announcement for the live stream on YouTube, click the "set reminder" button in the left bottom corner of the live stream announcement.

This is not a sure-fire way of getting notified. You are still encouraged to set up your own reminder using your favorite method.

Preparing for the Live Event

For some events, all you need to do is join in. For others, you may benefit from it better if you examine the materials listed in the announcement before the event starts. For example, you may complete some exercises during an event; the exercises will be provided so you can complete them.

When you see an announcement for an event, you may see a note like “Check the descriptions for pre-event information” or something similar.

Engaging during the Event

While you are watching a live stream, you can chat with other viewers and with the presenter by sending messages in live chat. Keep in mind that the presenter will be busy managing the event; although the presenter may not always see everyone’s messages, the presenter will do his or her best.

YouTube Super Chat

One way to get your questions or comments noticed is to use Super Chat. When you purchase chat messages, your message will stand out and pinned to the top of the chat feed.

Some participants also use Super Chat simply as a way to support the channel so we can continue producing content and having live stream events.

Note that the Super Chat feature is not available on all browsers.

Follow YouTube’s Community Guidelines

Remember to follow YouTube’s community guidelines and guidelines for staying safe in live streams. Remember that these are public events and everyone can see any information you share in chats.

What if I Miss a Live Stream?

Live stream events are stay on YouTube when they are over. At any time, you can access our playlists on YouTube to watch previous live events.
