An English discussion group is being set up for Wednesdays.
One student has already signed up for the group.
The time for the meeting is 7 PM (19:00 Hours) / Beijing time which is the same as my 5:00 AM
(Mountain Standard Time) in Denver, Colorado, United States.
Group members should be willing to use Web Cam and be able to discuss light subjects which are friendly and which encourage all members to participate.
Hello Jonathan: These are all good questions.
Maximum Capacity is Me + 4 participants.
It is for the students of English but I think a Native Speaker would be quite welcome. So if you wish to participate Wednesdays, you are welcome. It is rather easy to create many groups. This is my third Group. Group 1 is all Chinese Doctors. Group 2, meeting on Sundays
has students from Taiwan, Russia and China.
This the Third Group so far has one Chinese student + myself, so it needs more participants.
Do I have policy? My one concern is that someone will seek to discuss world affairs and steer the group to angry discussions about world conflicts. I had a member on another website once do this in a group and it ruined the chat experience for all concerned. I am sure you understand this kind of thing as you do have experience.
what it gives in GMT ?
It looks you may be able to join us on Sunday then. Let's give it a try.
I forget if we had worked out the time difference, but you can use <a href="http://www.timeanddate.com">www.timeanddate.com</a> or

Thanks for the above information, I'm very eager to join a group as soon as possible and I'll wait until You'll find the availabitlity. It sounds great that the group meet went well.
Well my technical issues will come to end this saturday. So I'm free to connect to the group you'll be creating momentarily..
You're honoured to inbox me more about your French student if you desire.. :)
Oh Kia, I think you would have loved that.
PetrelBear was there (and his wife), and he joined Jonathan and me with Karina & Christine together
and we had a wonderful talk which left a cheery memory with me all day long.
I will have to start a new group for you to get into. Four is a wonderful number for a group, and Five might be possible. I do not want to crowd to many people into a group though.
The Sunday group filled up, and the Wednesday group filled up. I must start a new group so that you can get into one. Never fear though. As soon as your technical issues are overcome, I will certainly
have a group for you. Did I tell you about my French student? She is a dear friend.
