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

I am probably elementary but I am shy to talk.

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 am happy to meet up with others who are like minded. I do not mind if there is a set topic or if it is general chat. I think a specific topic is perhaps easier to break the ice.

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?

Yes - a fair and reasonable sum

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

Chinese in Steps. I have just started Book 3.

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

No answer yet


Hi. I would love to have the opportunity to practice speaking and listening to mandarin more often than I do. I have lessons twice per week but it is not enough!
