How proficient are you in Chinese (newbie, elementary, intermediate, advanced, native speaker)?
Not sure as the levels are quite fluid! I speak fluently but have forgotten a lot of vocab since I studied Chinese.
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?
I'm very keen to participate in a study group, and chat informally at the same time :-D
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?
I have a private teacher at the moment so I probably wouldn't go for this.
Are you using a Mandarin textbook as part of your studies? If so, which one?
I'm currently reading from a book called A Chinese Elementary Reader.
Are you currently taking a formal Chinese course? If so, which?
Just private lessons, but I did study formally a while back at USyd.
Hi I'm Liz and I want to practise reading in Chinese.
