If you are not in one of my current online classes, feel free to ignore this blog. It feels good to ignore unimportant stuff. I can help you feel good.
If you are in one of my current online classes, this message is for you.
Well, snap. It has happened. What I feared has come to pass. The Internet in Greece is as bad as the economy in Greece.
I thought this might happen. Remember? I warned us all that this might happen. I am not sure that class is going to work this week. Or, the week after that. And so on.
I WILL attempt class tomorrow. You are welcome to come. However, you should know, the Internet here is slow. Ridiculously slow. As slow as a congressman’s conscience.
So, what does it all mean?
It means this. I AM going to attempt class tomorrow, and Wednesday. You are likely going to try to attend. If it fails, we will go to plan B.
Here is plan B: Most of the classes are already pre-recorded. This means that you will just watch the recording for class. You can ask any questions that you would ask in class by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Or, if you are a Facebook user, contact me here: https://www.facebook.com/laughatlatin. Of course, you can also contact me on my site: https://dwanethomas.com/. If you do try to contact me, and you get tired of waiting, one of your fellow students may be able to help you. Simply click on the “forum” tab on my site, join the forum for your class, and ask away. You may even make some friends in there.
As I said, we ARE going to attempt class this week. IF class fails, I will simply continue pre-recording classes. Nothing else should change.
One more thing… if you want to finish the classes “live”, I am willing to finish classes up in July and August if you are willing to come to class when it is too hot to be outside anyway.
Let’s see what happens over the next few days.
