Interactive Correspondence Course
The correspondence course has now been running for four years and continues
to attract new players from all over the world. I am now able to accept cheques in most major currencies,
enquire for details of exchange rates.
The course is run in two phases.
You complete a detailed questionnaire about your go, how
you think about it, what you want to expand on and how much time and
effort you wish to devote to it.
I then send you a detailed analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of your game,
with recommendations for how to build on your present skills and what to study next.
This phase costs £25 or US $50 or Euro50
If you like the style, you can then join the second phase of the course,
in which I construct explanatory articles and collections of problems and send
these together with comments on your games, records of professional games
illustrating features of the other articles and recommendations for further reading;
and you send game scores for me to analyse, answers to the exercises,
and details of positions or ideas which you are having difficulty with.
This phase costs £75 or US $150 or Euro150 for each 8 packages of material.
- Commentaries on your games can concentrate on any aspect
you want to see expanded upon, and will include recommendations for
adapting your style to suit your particular strengths as well as pointers to
sources for widening your vocabulary. Where the existing literature does not contain
suitable explanations, I will write new articles for your personal use.
- You choose your own speed to work at, and control your own
subject matter in as much detail as you want.
- Material will be sent out by post or by Email. The intention is
to make the material available in as wide a range of media as possible.
