We started BIBA Online Teaching to reach people who want to study hard but cannot come to us. Our online program is as intense as if you were in Seoul with us, so be prepared! From beginners to advanced players, everyone is welcome! The project is being held on KGS, come and join us!
Our program includes:
There are several groups depending on your go strength, Kim Seungjun 9p (Blackie) and Kőszegi Diána 1p (Dia) are reviewing each groups together. Each group have 6 to 7 players, which means 5 to 6 games per month for each player. Every player have 1 or 2 games per week. We set up the weekly pairings of the games so you just have to decide the date, contact your opponent and play!
At the end of each week, the teachers review all the games which were played in every group. Everybody is able to join and share their thoughts and ask their questions. If you miss the live review, you can watch the video anytime you want! We also have a BIBA Online Teaching Group on Facebook, where the videos can be watched and even commented. Moreover we create group chats on Facebook for each groups, so the students can easily contact with each other through Facebook, not only by e-mail.
Each week, we send one lecture about various topics, it mostly consists of opening or joseki lectures. We will also ask all the students if there is one specific topic they would want as a lecture and we will work on it!
Life & Death problems
Like at school, you receive Life & Death problems each week and have to solve them. The teachers will then correct your answers, send it back to you and give little time to correct your mistakes before you receive the final solutions sheet.
Once per month, each student receive a teaching game from either Blackie or Dia. (depending on the students’ level) The game will be reviewed right after it is finished with the student who played the game. If the other students miss the live review, they can watch it later whenever they want!
For people who are interested in the program but have no time to play the League games and the Teaching game, we have an observer option where you can get all the past videos and the videos of the current month. Moreover observers can join the live group reviews and teaching games reviews and get the weekly Life & Death problems which will be checked by the teachers.
