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

Nearly intermediate

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?

Informally is good, but specific learning goals sessions would also be good.

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 - it's hard to say how much as it depends on how many students there are, but probably £5 a session. I think sessions should be 90minutes at least, with 2 hours being ideal.

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

Contemporary Chinese. It's really boring but good for learning characters!

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

Not at the moment, but I was in Shanghai with a private language school.

Introduction

Hi! My name is Aya and I have just moved back to the UK from Shanghai. I am a relative newbie in London though!
