speak chinese like a native

Beijing or Shanghai?

Posted by dagah July 31, 2008 in the Group General Discussion .

Hey everyone, I have some question I'd like to ask.. I want to go to china next year and stay there for like 1-2 year or something to learn mandarin. I've heard that Beijing is better if you want to learn mandarin, but is there really that big difference?

I've just been to shanghai for a month, and really liked it there. But Beijing kinda sucks because it's so polluted. And if I go to Shanghai I get to stay with the host family I lived with that month, which is great.

What do you guys think? Do you learn mandarin alot quicker in Beijing than in Shanghai? Is it a bit more waste of time to go to Shanghai instead of Beijing to learn mandarin?

Thanks for any advice/tips in advance!
