I tend to think of myself as an Emma Woodhouse sort of girl... privileged in her own little world, but very, very sheltered..and in performance, quite a Harriet. I'd like to improve on that a bit! (With more success than Emma.)
As the internet is the primary tool at my disposal for self-teaching ( of which I am a huge fan), and my transportation to a community is ridiculously unavailable on a regular basis, I'm craving something smart and interactive for things like learning French, or Debate, or Sewing and Other Crafts ...groups of people just pooling their resources and having discussions. Google's a great tool, but perhaps a few of you know of something specific and well-established?
....and if not, why don't we start a little club? we can meet at my forum, or yours, and bring our best pieces- it would be quite divine.
