Classical Chinese Reading Group

Postby John Yu » 10 Apr 2012, 15:32

Recently on the thread "ICLP worth it" there has been some talk about starting a classical Chinese reading group, with some Forumosans expressing interest. I know this is something myself and some other Forumosans have talked about for awhile, but have never actually started.

As I mentioned in the other thread, I'm not sure about committing to a long-term group, but I would be interested to at least meet those of you who are studying and hear about your experiences.

What if we met up this weekend on Saturday afternoon at 3 or so at the Lumiere cafe in Gongguan? (I'm familiar with the Gongguan area, but if anyone wants to recommend a different location that's OK) As a starting point we could discuss our motivations for studying classical Chinese, progress thus far, materials studied, other insights, etc.

Anyone interested? If we can get at least 3 or 4 people, then I'd be willing to do this.

I'm up for the group of course, but this Saturday PM is no good for me. I'll be bowling. :cool:

Yes, I'm also interested, but am quite busy for the next four weeks or so.

Skype Conferencing is not on the table?

Nope. If we are going to classical Chinese, I think we must be traditionalist enough to meet in person. How about we try Lumiere in Sunday afternoon on 22 April?

Or a week night the following week?
