Who'd like to learn Mandarin Chinese? I teach for free!

Postby dancerlu » Mon, 28 Dec 2009 1:05 pm

Hello,everyone, I am from Shanghai, mainland China, with a Master Degree in Mass communication and Bachelor degree in Education and I used to be a boradcast journalist when in High School and was a part-time teacher. So I speak very standard Mandarin Chinese plus experience in teaching.
Now I am in Singapore and I'm looking for a partner who speaks with a good British Accent! (good accent not fake British accent like the one Ross speaks in episodes of Friends!)
Yes, that's why I will teach my partner mandarin Chinese for free, for my partner should in return teach me a British Accent!
So anyone interested in learning Mandarin Chinese, and with a good British accent are welcome to contact me!
my name is Yu Qing (you can call me Ching), cell-phone: 91230359 e-mail address: luyuqing0708@gmail.com
Thank you all for your advice!

Sir, I don't want to oppose your views but you should never have a generalized perception..Not all fingers are same still the hands belongs to you.. so not all Indians have the same accent... 75% of BPO services of UK is done from India... :) :) hheh ehe

And don't we know it! :lol: British born and bred! The service sector is also at an all time low because of it. Though it is nothing to do with your accent! More to do with social contact! Outsourcing is not a good idea unless you can back it up with real time action! And to be quite honest locals may not understand becuase of their depth of local accent, they have never heard queens English in their environment, sorry but true! Amazing I know but the constant bad parenting reverses the development of societies :wink: What does that say for the majority of the work force and education system? If we was to really analise the outcome of outsourcing to overseas, we could measure the long term impact very well. so it suits the short term CEO's very well bad service to cut costs is normalin UK
