I'm in the County Hall/Waterloo area and looking for Mandarin speakers to practise with - no money involved, just new friendships and shared learning. I'm a 28 yr old professional female, and I've been studying spoken and written Mandarin (Simplified) for 1 year full time, and am looking for (pref) native speakers, or folk who have learnt it for business/fun to meet up with. Anyone interested please email me on [email protected],

Perhaps try Waterloo Time Bank? They will swap hours of conversation for hours of other types of help.

I used to do (in fact I must arrange to carry this on) English conversation with a Korean man. They work with residents in the Waterloo area, as well as all sorts of foreign students. I bet you could swap an hour of your conversational English for an hour of Mandarin.


...if you press it, they will come.
