If you ARE going to be apart of it, please learn and participate.
That sentence reminds me of the time you kept bothering me at one of the meetings. Observation is part of my nature and I participate when I feel it is necessary, not when you state so.
Learning a language is like learning how to drive. Sure you can watch someone else do it and learn from it, but you will never truely learn until you get behind the wheel and try it for yourself. In the meeting I made tried to make everyone participate. For those who understood the material, they did well and were able to remember it better because of the practice. For those who did not understand the material quite as well, it showed them that they still needed to practice it. I tried to get EVERYONE, not just you to do it.
Also did you bother anyone who didn’t show up? Surely they weren’t participating too.
I cannot remember the names of everyone, and the website was not up to date. YOU were the one with the list of participants. I cannot make everyone come to a meeting, but for those who do, I am going to help them as much as I can...but that means they need to be willing to learn. What is the point of coming to a meeting if you are not going to participate...it seemed to me that you didn't even want to learn Japanese by your tone...I had even offered to help you privately.
Despite your efforts, my enthusiasm is quite well thank you. In fact I recently received my Japanese Graded Readers Level 2 vol.1 that I ordered last week. Your inane hostility will not stop me from learning Japanese, so just leave me alone please.
Also I have decided that I shall not be part of this group any longer.
If you are going to take my joy of teacher others what I love so much as hostility, then go ahead. I only ever tried to help you learn and understand. It is you who will lose the opportunity to benefit from another study group, where everyone participates and learns, TOGETHER.
I did not try to stop you from learning Japanese...quite the contrary, but here, you are being rude to Sei, who is trying to set up a good thing for many beginners...which is unnecessary.
I was not the only one teaching in the last group, so these are just my views.
