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.
Don't know. Yes. That would be fine too.
Maybe. Seven pounds.
No, just dictionaries and material from this meet-up group.
Total of about 4 years studying, teaching, performing and travelling in China. Available as China tour guide, singer, musician and actor.
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.
