Thank you for your post, SS-san. :)
It's useful and looks very fine.

I think we can learn a few more expressions on October 7th.
For example;
・ じゃ/ちゃ (colloquial form of ては/では)
・ 〜の/〜だい/〜かい ( sentence-end particles for informal questions)

I know we are familiar with じゃ/ちゃ. But we might need to learn more about some sentence-end particles.

Please feel free to post your opinions.
Thank you.

I think a good topic would be some mathematical type expressions, such as

以上
以下



This might fit with ほが, より grammar on Oct 14. I'm going through my second JLPT 3 test and so far both have had at least one listening exercise involving math expressions like this, so it'll be good to cover.

Wow... Starting to notice that I only have less than 3 months to prepare myself for the JLPT. Anyway, as the above post from SS, I'm fine with the schedule, just that might not be able to attend all since my exam starts the mid of next month and ends by the first week of nov if I have remembered correctly. Well, pls keep me updated. Thanks! ;)

Time's sure flying, isn' it?
I would like to join today's session, if that's okay.
Is the password still the same as 2 weeks ago?

Gundaetiapoさん
I didn't notice that Daylight saving time is over on November 4th.(?)
Is it okay to you that the session starts at GMT 13:00?
or GMT 13:00 is still 08:00 on November 4th in your time zone?

夏時間の終了日に気づきませんでした。
11月4日のGMT13時は、そちらの午前8時ですか?
もし午前7時だとしたら、開始時間を30分遅らせた方がいいですか?

RE: 11/4の開始時間について

Postby coco » Fri 11.02.2007 8:03 pm

How about this idea?
1) 13:00-13:30 GMT: listening
2) 13:30-15:00 GMT: grammar
3) 15:00-15:30 GMT: listening ( same program as 1.)

1 is held for the members who can't participate in 3.
Is there anyone who can NOT attend 3 ?
Please let us know by GMT 12:00 November 3rd (Saturday).

Thank you for your cooperation.
