I was thinking that it would be great to have some language classes for basic conversation and grammar..
Right now I would love to see a Russian language class.
Also, I could teach Arabic and 1 of its dialects.

The room is painted heron blue

Lit by candlelight and chandelier

And from her headboard perched so high

A million dreams have passed her

Hey that sounds awesome! :)
As a Mexican, maybe I can help with doubts regarding Spanish and maybe a little French (I'm in classes)

I've been trying to teach myself Japanese. Isn't easy though, when there is no one to talk with.

I'm game! After a while you should be past the "guest" part of being here, and actually a member, and we can start then!

Clearly not. They say they are willing to help us learn, but they don't. Who knows why.

Folks come and folks go.

I can tell you that I used Pimsleur to learn French and it went better for me than going to French class...Pimsleur helps you learn every day while in class you only learn 2 times a week max

I would be interested in ANY language class! I'm fairly fluent in Spanish and have plans (ganas) to become a translator and interpreter someday :) I'm also working on my French language skills, especially listening, as I'm close enough to BC to pick up French-language radio stations! LOL Shoot me a msg when class is ready and I'll come running!! :2thumbsup:
