posted message: Hello participants! We have a good group going, so I think we're about ready to officially begin our study group. Let's consider next week "week one" and aim to complete the work for that week ("Week One, Italy & Spain") by the end of next week. Work at whatever pace makes the most sense for you and your schedule, but aim to finish by the end of the week, so we can all move along together. Post comments on this wall as you have them and pose any questions that you have. The more active we are in this space, the more we learn from each other! Also, I think it would make sense to try to set up a weekly live chat. How do others feel about this? And any ideas as to what the best forum might be for this? Skype? GChat? Something else?
