Feng Yun will be holding her summer weiqi workshop online in 2021, from June 28 through August 20, Monday through Friday, with a one week break for the online United States Go Congress. With COVID-19 still circulating, meeting face-to-face is too risky. Feng Yun will continue to use a combination of online tools, including Zoom, KGS, OGS, Tygem, 101weiqi, and others. Everyone now has lots of experience with web-based learning environments, so this should go smoothly.
This workshop is suitable for players who have been playing on a 19x19 board and can complete a game. Students with little or no experience should consider private lessons first to prepare, and join the workshop later; please contact Feng Yun to discuss how this might work in your case.
Workshops activities are a blend of interactive lectures, playing and reviewing games, and problem solving to hone pattern recognition and logical thinking. By being able to concentrate on weiqi every day, students often blossom in the summer workshop and show significant improvement. Teaching materials are different every day, so we recommend registering for as many days as possible.
This year, the workshop is divided into two sections by level. Feng Yun will be teaching both sections, and would be happy to discuss which section would be best for you.
|Section A||1:00 - 4:00 p.m. EDT||This advanced section corresponds roughly to Feng Yun's Level 3 classes, and students currently in Feng Yun's Level 2 classes may consider trying. By way of general guidance, players who have a rating or rank the equivalent of 9 kyu or better (higher than -10.0 on the American Go Association scale) should register for Section A; Feng Yun Go School ratings, and ratings on go servers such as KGS and OGS, are comparable to AGA ratings. Other players should consult with the teacher before deciding.|
|Section B||10:00 - 12:00 noon EDT||This intermediate section corresponds to Feng Yun's Level 2 classes, and has a pace and duration suited to younger players and players with less experience. Students currently in Feng Yun's Level 1 classes may register for this section.|
Please note that summer workshop times are in the New York (Eastern Daylight Time) time zone.
