It seems to me that most people learning Putonghua over the internet are a generation or two below me. As a 50+ language student who is absolutely passionate about the language and the culture, I'd really like to connect with like-minded individuals - just to compare notes (eg ease - or lack of - in learning the characters) and bounce ideas. Gosh, if you were even living in Brisbane (my home city) that would be amazing --- but not at all necessary.
Are there any other older folk out there in Chinesepod cyberspace????
