Final Preparations Update

To those who already done their Final Show segment, congratulations! I appreciate your courage and thought the shows went really well. 
I've gotten several comments from around the world like this one from Maria in Argentina
"Your students are very brave to let you do this! By taking the challenge they have made a huge step to practising for the "unexpectedness" of communication. Thank you for giving me a free trip to your beautiful country!"
Updated times for Hangout Practice and Office Hours. 
  • If you've already done a practice Hangout or plan to participate from Jeff's office, you don't need to practice. If you plan to participate in an On Air Show from home or school, I strongly suggest doing a practice hangout first. I will start an off-air practice hangout at 8pm on Sunday.If you're not available then, contact me and perhaps we can arrange another time to practice.
    Before Hanging out , you will need

Any questions or confusions, please contact me via email, Kakao, or Google Messenger. 

Good luck with all of your final exams,
