Chinese Learners / Speakers in the East Midlands

January 04, 2010, 09:14 AM posted in General Discussion

Anybody out there from the East Midlands, UK, who fancies getting together to speak Chinese? A bunch of us learners and a few Chinese speaker friends from the Leicester/De Montfort Uni Languages@Leicester Chinese classes have decided to organise an informal meet-up group to get together and practice spoken Chinese.

We thought about going with, but it's a bit pricey. So I've set up a site called It's fairly basic, and you need to sign up (it's free, and run on a volutnary basis - and always will be) - but it's a way of making connections locally so that we can get together.

PM me, or contact me thorugh ZhongWenLeicester if you want to join us. Our first meeting will, naturally enough, be in the Phoenix cafe/bar in a couple of weeks' time.

Hi thinkbuddha,

This sounds good - I'll check out your site.  Are you still doing the meet-ups?  My level is probably between Newbie and Elementary.
