Invitation to Group Conversation

Hi to each of you. I have an idea I want to share and to find out how many of you are interested in it.


I'm thinking of using a YY channel for oral conversations. The framework that I envision is just an informal “get together” talking about some subject.: There will be only conversation. This means we do not have to read any articles or book – we just talk about what we think or know from our experiences. The subject will vary from time to time.


The first topic for the Conversation Group I have in mind is culture. People talking informally about their culture, and asking questions about other peoples culture. I'm thinking of having 5 sessions:

1. A planning meeting – a discussion of what parts of our cultures we want to talk about;

2. Four weekly meetings each discussing some topic which we decided upon in the first meeting.


I'm wondering if 8 PM Saturday, May 11, 2013, Beijing time is a time that fits into the schedules of each of the readers of this invitation.


I think we need people who are pretty fluent in English, who like to discuss topics that require some thought and interest on their part, and who are curious about the world.


I have sent this note to the following people (most of them in the Learning Paradise QQ Chat group).

While we don't want to have a group that is too large for everyone to join in the discussion, I'm sure that some of this group to whom invitations have been sent will not accept.  SO, if anyone knows someone who they think would be a very good member of the group, please tell me right away so we can invite them to the planning meeting.
