Beijing ren?

Postby Butterfly78 » Sat, 17 Mar 2007 6:31 pm

Nihao!

I am moving to Singapore from Beijing next month and would like to keep up with my Chinese. I am not really looking for a language exchange or lessons as such - just coffee, shopping and hanging out. I'm looking for fun people who speak standard Mandarin and can put up with my Beijing hua!

I am from China and have been in overseas for many years. I mainly speak English now but I taught Mandarin part-time before, and only encourage people to speak standard Chinese and standard English. My bf is seriously learning Chinese too. He just moved to Singapore and would be happy to meet people who have similar background and interest in Chinese language and culture. Do you want to catch up with us? Maybe we can have a gathering.
Bei Jing Ren and Zebby are invited too!
