Meet at Entrance
I am at Foyles ground floor
Should I go one level up?
Jb, I am near tickets
Unfortunately, will not be able to attend tonight, as I have a lot of things that require my attention (inc. my girlfriend, who wasn't feeling well yesterday). I will come next week for this level, so see you soon!
no problem Christian. see you soon! :)
To clarify, what sort of level is this Beginner / Lower Intermediate class on the HSK scale?

Hi David, I would say most of the class are between HSK Level 2-3, and are studying toward level 3-4.
Perfect, I can't make it tonight but will definitely look to come to future classes at that sounds about the right level for me!
Hi Yan, to help distinguish what people mean by 'Beginner', 'Elementary', 'Intermediate', 'Advanced', yada yada yada, could you perhaps use an international standard to reflect the level e.g. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Common_European_Framework_of_Reference_for_Languages. I'm in the B1 level, and am studying with my teacher HSK 4 (B2).
From my previous attendance at MyPace, Benjamin and the others are definitely in the B2+ levels. My Chinese - disgracefully given how many years I've been procrastinating, er studying - is not yet at that level.
More kicks up the backside needed!

Thanks for the suggestion, Christian. I will look into that.

For anyone who has an interest in taking the HSK, there is a fascinating rebuttal from the Association of Chinese Teachers in German Speaking Countries who produced a paper to assert that the linking of the new HSK (as set out in the HSK) to the CEFR is incorrect. The HSK is of a much lower standard compared to the requirements for other European languages. http://www.fachverban...
