Cool, Im free when ever. If something does come up I will let you know when I won't be able to join the meets, about three days before the actual meet date if I know the meet date in advance.

*sighs*

I was hoping I wouldn't have to ask but... Everyone who has joined, please give your GMT time. We can't really decide anything without knowing if we're setting the lesson when you're asleep...

Jumpman
terence_hideyoshi
Hatori
SaverS
jboix2000

This is the list of people who have yet to state their times.

I'm not sure if Hatori is joining the group or was just giving an idea... But actually, to comment on the idea - that would put a great responsibility on the "teachers", besides a great amount of work. Not sure if anyone would be up to that.

And I do hope no one thinks of this group as a classroom... I can't state this enough, it's a group. Don't except some to be preparing the meetings on their own and the others just arrive and listen. Everyone is required to participate on the preparation of the meetings as much as possible. And as of now, a way of participating would be to give opinions and ideas, as I have stated in my previous post.

Have fun studying and for those who haven't stated their times yet, please do. It's important for setting the meeting time as soon as possible. :)

[center]Update[/center]

First off, I have collected the times from everyone and made a sort of schedule with votes. This means that by what each person said about their available times I created a sort of schedule for each person. And then, putting it all together, saw which hour of the week was better for the bigger amount of people.

Regarding those who haven't given their times yet: check if the time is good for you, if not, give me your times so I can see if another time might be available.

The current time decided is: Saturday at 4 pm for GMT +1 (UK current time).

You can use this site: http://wwp.greenwichmeantime.com/ if you have trouble changing the time to yours.

Comments are welcome.

Edit: I almost forgot, there was one person who's time was GMT +12 (I cannot remember the person's nickname now). Be careful, when changing the time it might end up being another day for you.

I might be able to join in, but my schedule is somewhat erratic. Then again, 10AM this Saturday I'll probably be at work :\

Count me in ;), I would have liked to have joined the original JLPT4 group that was set up, but I sort of missed the boat so to speak, and before I knew it was well under way:| and I feared I wouldn't be able to follow if I joined half way through.

Thanks for another opportunity, that I will definitely make the most of this time. ;)
My time zone is UTC +0 by the way.


EDIT

"The current time decided is: Saturday at 4 pm for GMT +1"

No problem with that, in fact thats great since I've usually got the most free time on the weekend.
