Hi Qianshang,

I'd looove to learn mandarin. But won't doing it online be difficult? You know, the pronunciation and all?

Let me know what you plan to do about this thing, ok? You can PM me too!!!
Think of the solution; not the problem.

Cool. I'll have to install msn first though. I have skype. If you have it, we can talk there too.

As for my Chinese? Its zero. Zilch, Nada, Nil, Nothing, hehehe

So you'll have to start in the beginning.

By the way, are you a girl/boy? 8) 8) 8)

well, if my microphone and webcam aren't working this method wouldn't work for me, right? otherwise, ya, I wouldn't mind learning Mandarin. you can PM me if you still think i'm a viable candidate.

Hi,
There is a mandarin learning group and the tutor is on vacation. We meet once a week on sat. Check the tread on the issue if you are keen in learning mandarin. Its a informal group and the tutor is from China.
Cheers

Hi Qianshang,

I think we'll need to set up a time for us to chat in msn. Then we can talk there. I can't read Chinese either and I don't understand the numbers you typed beside the words, hehe.

What do you say to that? Since I'm fairly available nowadays, you can just set the time that is most convenient to you ok? That will be best too because I don't know if there is any difference between the times for China and Singapore.

ciao!
Kansah
