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.
Â 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.
I would be very much interested in learning online.My brother has just set up an office in guanzhou & he is learning.I am based in Doha,Qatar.I would like to surprise him with chinease language(Mandarin),hey I know a coffee shop by this name near safeer, behind Jareer book shop,Qatar.I would just to join this club of learning.
See u there !!
Why, E46? Aren't they just as Chinese as the rest of the Chinese?
Chinese people? No offense but ladies of the night don't count.
There seem to be quite a few chinese people there. Also a good place to learn.
Am a Chinese from NZ, and I was educated in Taiwan. It will be godd to know people like to practise mandarin in Doha.
Surely I can help.
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.
Sure I'm interested in learning chinese but only if its online study group. Also let me caution you that I do not know anything of the language. So it will be a fresh begining if that is ok with you. Good luck....
Chinese? Actually I am a chinese myself, although I can't really speak mandarin, only cantonese. I will move to Doha in a less than 2 weeks, I am definately interested to know if there are other Chinese around in the area.
