Lectures list for Go lessons

Lectures list (updated April, 2011). I am preparing new topics regularly!

Each lecture is about 55-60 minutes - voice (Skype or KGS voice system) or text. All examples are mainly from recent pro and top KGS players games. All lectures are prepared personally by A.Dinerchtein and it's hard to find these knowledges in any other sources, such as English Go books and magazines.
