I presume this General Thread for the English contingent is where I will post a short monthly 'hello' post so that I may remain active on the French board.

I find that for my present level (D03), the French board is much much more active than the English board, so I enjoy reading the comments and viewing the students' submissions (at my level) on this board. I definitely gain additional valuable musical information and tips from doing so.

Hi Judy,

Yes, it's a useful thread for maintaining membership of this forum, especially for non-French speakers, though I see you have posted in French on other parts of the forum, which of course is even better when you can manage it. As you said, reading the classes on the other forums, even those you are not a member of, can be very instructive.

Geoff, now with the new rules in place, precluding dual participation in two different language boards, I am unsure as to whether I am allowed to comment on the French students' submissions. In fact, to have an occasional interloper merely comment on submissions, who is not actively participating in the lessons, could understandably not be that welcome. I am actually quite content just to observe the submissions and commentary on the French board, and remain enrolled in, and actively participate on the English board.

I just hope posting a 'hello, I am still alive and interested' post every month on the English thread, will not be viewed negatively, because I really do benefit from passively following the dialogue and student submissions on the French board.

Yes, Judy, it's absolutely fine just to observe the lessons without actively participating, and in fact you wouldn't even need to log in to do that. And it's fine to post here on the English thread to keep your account open. If possible, I think making some sort of actual comment here, maybe a sentence or two as you did earlier, goes down better than just a perfunctory one or two words.

Thanks Geoff, I will keep your advice in mind, and try to post a comment with some (at least minimal) substance beyond a perfunctory 'hi', in my monthly posts.
