Firstly, thanks to Steve for setting up moodle and uploading material related to food (the subject of the next study meetup on the 22nd). Not to mention recording the video tutorial and enlisting the teacher in Beijing's help.
Please do give moodle a try - you can create an account for free. Even if you are unable to participate in the next meetup you will
hopefully find something interesting and can participate in the online
discussions. The more people participate and use the service the more interesting it will be for everyone. We'll add new content for each study meetup (and possible for the restaurant meetups too if there is anything useful) so the collection of material will grow over time.
is owned and hosted by me and I guarantee not to share your data with 3rd parties so you don't need to worry about getting additional spam.
If you have any questions / difficulties with moodle�� please email this list (or Steve and me directly if you don't want to share your question with the list). For Mandarin related questions please give the discussion forums on moodle a try.
As you can probably guess from the fact that we now have a domain name and a web site Steve and I are thinking of other ways of making the group a more fun & effective aid to learning Mandarin so we'll probably have more announcements in the future ...
On 16 September[masked]:22, steve <[address removed]>
In preparation for our next meetup (September study meetup (Food)
) Dave and I have created a website which can hopefully better support people to prepare things.
It is hosted at: http://www.londonmandarinlearners.org.uk/moodle/
. To use it you will need to sign up for a free account, but then you will have access to all our materials. We have asked a teacher in Beijing to help out answering questions, so if you have any things you want to ask, you can post to the discussion forum there.
A youtube video explaining how the site works is available here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=reg5_3f7CHo
Anyway, we hope it might be of some use. Please try it out and give us some feedback. This is fairly experimental so there might be some glitches but hopefully it can help us get more out of the meetups.
Please Note: If you hit "REPLY", your message will be sent to everyone on this mailing list ([address removed])
