Argh, It's Skype Weekend! Why didn't someone else speak up, or at least remind me????
This weekend is the weekend that falls closest to the middle of each month, so for March it'll be 15th-16th March. Got it? Great.
The idea is that you turn on SKype on Friday night and leave it on all weekend or as much of it as you can, marking yourself away or asleep etc when necessary. That lets other people who know your skype name contact you, requesting that you include each other in your contacts list. No pressure to accept, and definitely no pressure to speak Mandarin when you do call each other, because initially it's just to make social contact with other students.
Well my weekend is getting close to its end already, but in other parts of the world it's just starting. See, that's how we manage to overlap all our time zones, by making it a whole weekend thing.
So turn your Skype on, quick!
