Dec 12th was our 13th Meet and Greet, everyone got into the Christmas spirit.... it was a lot of fun and heaps of great prizes were given away including beer, magazines, toys incl. a large Santa mobile, magnetic dartboard, and more.... we had drink specials on the gluhwein which worked a treat given the recent CHILLY weather.... 


Want to enhance your spoken Mandarin in a relaxed environment?

Are you tired of being told lao wai can't speak Chinese, and are sick of people assuming you can't understand what they're saying?

Are you up for meeting great people, in a social networking environment (most people are working professionals) and want to regularly chat in zhongwen on a range of topics, over some beers / wine?

Are you Chinese and want to make foreign friends, but speak Chinese to them most of the time?

Come to my events!

I started the Chinese Chat for Serious Zhongwen Learners group in 2009 (April), it's been going for over 2 years and now have 750+ online members, and an average of 20-40 people attend each event.

I started this group to practice my own Mandarin and to lose the fear i had in speaking it every day. I also hope to encourage like minded lao wai to lose the fear, face it by jiang, jiang, jianging zhongwen every day. Don't worry about mistakes. They will only help you learn! And, we have a great bunch of locals who come and will speak to you fully in CHinese without being patronising, like, "OH YOU HAVE GREAT CHINESE" when you have only just said "NI HAO"!

Any questions, send me a message, hope to see you there!!!!


If you have questions feel free to message me or post on the wall.

Just finished up my first 10 weeks in an immersion class and was completely disappointed to find out that after 200 lessons - I am still testing at a Elementary level.  Any recommendations for Mandarin Schools in Jinqiao?  I visited Olive Tree Mandarin this afternoon and was impressed but don't want to waste another 10 weeks on learning about American Football and songs about One Eyed Tigers.
