When is the best time to watch the Let’s Chat videos?
Find a time that works for you and your companion when you are both ready to engage in watching the Let’s Chat video.
Can I watch the video more than once?
Yes! You can watch it as many times as you like. You will probably have different conversations and find different things to chat about if you watch it again.
Can I keep all the videos that I have subscribed to?
Yes you can. It is recommended that the greatest benefit will be gained from engaging in the current Let’s Chat title during the month that you receive it. As many of the videos are based on topical and time of year themes, watching them in the suggested period will increase their relevance, aid orientation to time and add to the enjoyment you gain from them.
