In my last post, I wrote about how to find a language partner.  Hopefully that went well, you've contacted some people on the Mixxer and have agreed on days and times to meet on Skype.  What now?

Hi, it's been long time we haven't met as i was finishing homework as usual. It's a little different that i learned how to use TRADOS, a translation machine. After finishing the first passage of translation from Chinese to English, i think i need some rest. My brain will go on strike. Homework is too much! Now it's 15:46 and i wanna go out of the library for seeking some food like cold noodle.....I can imagine the rush situation for the next 2 years. 

Thanks for helping others.
