When and How
The discussion is online through Skype/Wechat. It is usually held during the weekend.
This is the so called Russian style seminar.
- Everyone will get their chance to lead the discussion.
- Interrupt and ask for any questions.
- Do not be carried away by the time schedule. The next host will pick up whatever has not yet been finished.
