I'm an Aussie in Shanghai, who learned Chinese for ages back home but never really had many jihui to lianxi the language. I always wondered: why aren't there more practical ways to practice and build the confidence? Getting high scores in tests (written) really meant nothing in the scheme of things. Hence: CHINESE CHAT FOR SERIOUS ZHONGWEN LEARNERS was born in April 2009 in Starbucks Cafe, Shanghai, with a total of 8 people (first meeting). From there it spurred on to 20, 30, 40 and at most 45 people attending my monthly pub events in Shanghai. I now have 500+ members on Shanghai Stuff alone and another 30-50 from other sites (and friends word of mouth advertising).

You can practice online, hanzi, pinyin, yingyu. Post a topic, see where it goes. Be honest and open. Challenge yourself. Don't be afraid. That's the key!!!

Anytime. Though I'm not in Shenzhen, it doesn't matter. The world is small these days. Feel free also to connect to my shanghai stuff link here. If you're in Shangers... come along to my event, over a beer, wine, sangria and join in the fun! We're not a traditional chinese corner group... no milk tea or duck's neck snacks there.... we have a huge and great bunch of people with a good attitude and no matter what level of Chinese, they're all willing to have a crack!!!

I was always passionate about languages and Chinese. I remember in high school my mum said "what the heck?? why chinese?? why not do something normal like French and go to Europe?" haha that was then and this is now! and thank god i chose to follow my 'heart' and not my mum's mind. I since learned Japanese and now Korean.. wanting to tackle some Swedish.. and eventually Spanish!

Anyway enough for now...

To see pics of my previous events (held at Starbucks, Cotton's, Abbey Road - Shanghai) click here. Who knows. If i ever got enough demand/interest from here..... over 45 at least able to attend any one event.... i could always consider it!!!! (you'd all have to shout me a beer tho!)

I am looking for language exchange partners, via WeChat (Weixin) or Viber.
I want to practice Chinese to improve my conversational skills (I study Mandarin in the Houston's Chinese Community Center) and can help you practicing either English, Portuguese or Spanish (I am fluent in all three). My Weixin ID is GenoMachines.
