How proficient are you in Chinese (newbie, elementary, intermediate, advanced, native speaker)?

Upper-intermediate level in Chinese; recognise around 3000 characters - can read kids books, but not newspapers. Can say more or less anything I want to in Mandarin, although "Since I left three years ago, I have been..." is a bit tricky in Mandarin.

What sort of events would you like the group to organise? For example, would you like structured meetups with definite learning goals? Do you just want a chance to chat informally with other people in Mandarin?

Don't know. Yes. That would be fine too.

If we can get professional Chinese teachers to provide some group tuition at our events would you be willing to contribute something to pay their fees? If so, how much would you be willing to pay?

Maybe. Seven pounds.

Are you using a Mandarin textbook as part of your studies? If so, which one?

No, just dictionaries and material from this meet-up group.

Are you currently taking a formal Chinese course? If so, which?



Total of about 4 years studying, teaching, performing and travelling in China. Available as China tour guide, singer, musician and actor.

What Chris J. is saying about this Meetup Group

The great thing about this meet-up is that for each session we have a definite focus - a piece of authentic Chinese writing, be it a magazine article or short story - perfect for an upper-intermediate level learner such as myself.
