Learning Chinese - anyone?

I've started learning chinese(mandarin) at university and finished the beginners level.I was doing well until I moved to Doha in late 2003; no chinese lesson or people to practice with since. I lost almost all of it.

 Few months ago I found a great podcast for learning chinese (and study material). I'm looking for people who're interested in learning chinese to form a study group (may be even online) and/or someone who speaks chinese who can help. Please let me know if you're interested.

I am interested to join ... preferably off line. IMHO it would be more effective when you talk to native speaker face to face.

I know quite a bit of basic vocabulary ... but need more practice to form a proper sentence.

That's a good response so far. Let is give it few more days and hopefully we will get more peole on board. We will then decide together the format (online/off-line). It's great to have mandrin speakers to help.

Aucklander: I really appreciate it, I'll email you today as well.

Why, E46? Aren't they just as Chinese as the rest of the Chinese?

Great to hear from you and welcome to Qatar. I know there are some Singaporeans and nowadays mainland Chinese in mainly construction and restaurants, and some in Qatar Airways as well. But it seems there're more Chinese coming to Qatar.
