World Languages RR :earth_asia: Open groups, Travelling groups, Completed groups,
Old forum groups

Welcome :wave:
This is a Round Robin for people who know or study languages, and for those who are just fascinated by languages!

Basic Rules:

  1. Anybody can join, but a member has to have at least 1 sent card in the official site.
  2. Each group has one member per country. Multiple members per language is allowed.
  3. You will write postcards in a non-English language. Naturally, no unwritten cards for this RR.
  4. You will send your cards within 2 weeks from the date you receive addresses.3 weeks for a challenge group (when you need to write in a language you don’t know).
  5. To join please click the blue reply square Reply at the bottom of this page and post which group you’d like to join.
  6. Then send me your address via private message. DO NOT post your address in this topic. (click the “Rules” below). If your address has a Non-Latin format (such as Chinese and Russian), please provide both Latin and Non-Latin formats. This RR is for language lovers!
  7. Please post in this topic every time you send or receive a postcard for this RR.

Click the triangle arrows to see the details.

Rules
  1. Unless it is marked as “In English” or “English Translation requested” please do not write your postcards in English.
  2. It would be a nice gesture to check others’ profiles when selecting and writing cards, however, there is no obligations for senders to grant everyone’s wishes.
    As long as postcards are not used or offensive, senders can decide which card to send.
  3. For regular groups, we assume you know the language a little bit at least.
  4. A group has 5 members, each from a different country.
    If another person from a same country wants to join, I’ll be happy to create another group!
    When a group is open for months it will be reduced to fewer members, each from a different county.
  5. You will send me your address only once when you join this RR for the first time (unless you sent it to me in 2017 or before, then please re-send it to me). If the address changed since the last time you had joined, please let me know. Thank you :slight_smile:
    If your original address is not in Latin alphabet (such as Chinese, Russian, Thai, etc), please give me the address in both English and non-Latin alphabet formats.
    Please DO NOT post your address in this topic. Send the address via private message (click my name or my icon then click Message. Private message should have an envelope icon just like this → Envelope ).
  6. Unless a “reported cheater” you can join multiple groups at a time. If you did not send cards, you can no longer join us!
