English/Mandarin language exchange

Post by asianamerican » Thu, 09 Apr 2009 5:58 pm

Just moved to Singapore, and am hoping to really practice my Mandarin...

I'm a Chinese-American (born and raised in the USA), but my Mandarin isn't great since I didn't speak it at home very much. It's not bad, but could use some practice in speaking and occasional correction.

Would love to meet up with people to practice my Mandarin -- and can help with English in return (if necessary).

I know there have been threads like this in the past, but they all died out, so have no idea what happened.

Language exchange - Chinese

Post by mayme82 » Thu, 23 Apr 2009 4:07 pm


Chinese is a nightmare for me, specially the pronounciation. I would love to have chinese friend to chat with. I have been working in Singapore for nearly 5 years, then again, I have yet to focus on my chinese. "It's now or never" , so I have firmly decide to improve my chinese. I would say my english is average. I graduated from NZ and was there for nearly 5 years. If anyone interested to exchange english - chinese, please message me or email mayme82@gmail.com.

p.s. I am fluent in Indonesian as well.

I'm a native English speaker from Canada. If anyone is interested in practicing their English I would be happy to help in return for a chance to practice my Mandarin. I can speak with either the Standard US or Standard BBC english accents. At the moment, evenings and weekends are free. Email me if you are interested at mcpearce@uvic.ca
