We will be learning basic Spanish phrases, vocabulary, and grammar.
I am curious if anyone is interested in learning toki pona.
There are already lessons, and I'd more act as a general guide. There are 18 lessons, and we could probably do about 3 a week and you'd be fluent in about a month.
It's a made up language with a rather small community, so it'd be more like learning a game or playing with a toy, but if anyone is interested, I think it'd be fun.
I'm making this post as MobiusCoffee so it's less confusing while I talk about stuff on the University of Reddit website.
I plan to use the University of Reddit website to make sure I'm dealing with the people who actually signed up for the course.
My reason for doing this is 3 fold.
- I would like to actually try to have the class be more like a class and actually use the framework of the website for more than just cataloguing. So, all assignments must be turned into me with a message via a PM to my University of Reddit page.
- The Unversity of Reddit gives everyone an @ureddit email, so if you don't want to use the actual website, you can still easily send me a PM via my @ureddit email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
- For greater convience, if you want don't want to go the University of Reddit page, you can set up email forwarding, or configure it for IMAP (with SSL), or even configure it for POP.
I think this will be good for the class, and will allow me to make sure those who are enrolled are taking the class and those who aren't enrolled are effectively auditing the class (as it would be in a normal university). By that I mean, anyone can sit in the subreddit, but only those actually enrolled will get homework and whatnot checked.
I will start next week, but I won't freeze the enrollment I think until maybe two weeks in. I will send a PM to those enrolled letting them know when we will be having our first group discussion.
- Not everyone has or is able to use Google+ right now, so we'll stick to Skype.
So, to conclude (an old fashioned tldr), to be enrolled in the class through the toki pona class University of Reddit page means you will have your work checked by me and you will know about group discussions.
Our goal in this class is reaching the A2 level of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.
After this class you will be able to:
Understand sentences and frequently used expressions related to areas of most immediate relevance (e.g. very basic personal and family information, shopping, local geography, employment). Communicate in simple and routine tasks requiring a simple and direct exchange of information on familiar and routine matters. Describe in simple terms aspects of your background, immediate environment and matters in areas of immediate need.
