Re: Advance discussions
- Dear Nina,
thank you. Yes, I believe we are always learning, to "live and learn" is very Asian, in Buddhism and Confucianism.
As for NPC2 exercises, I can only answer for my portion, as Florent posts according to his circumstances. In the earlier chapters, where the English-to-Pali exercises have more than ten questions, I posted the solutions in two separate mails over two weeks. In the later chapters, the exercises have only ten or less questions each, I see little benefit to halve or split them. I can say that these exercises are not exactly easy. I will also be checking my answers with Florent's, which should be done as we progressed but just hadn't happen. I am only left with the last exercise, and again there are only ten questions, so I will not be splitting it into two posts. ;-)
The "speeding up" of AN will not happen soon, and I will see how I can fit it in with existing arrangements. I shall update the group when I have more details. Thank you.

And what is more, we learn also from beginner's questions, looking things up, reviewing.
I am wondering if it is easier for the readers to divide your and Florent's exercises in several smaller parts. I start reading and then I have lack of time to continue, and start reading again further on but forgot where I was.
I am not so inclined to speeding up, but when I see Anguttara Nikaaya, I do my best to find time.
