Any Shanghai Poddies out there?
My name is Daniel (中文：何岱年), and I moved to Shanghai a few months ago to pursue an internship opportunity. Although I am thoroughly enjoying the opportunity to work with my Chinese coworkers and to learn about the Chinese legal system, I feel that my Chinese progress has been very limited. Outside of discussing law, food, and 开心农场, I don't have a lot of opportunities to use Chinese to discuss other topics.
I am a big proponent of the power of groups to facilitate language growth. Above all else, meeting in groups provides accountability and support for those of us who are struggling to stay on track with our Chinese-language studies. Would anyone here be interested in meeting up on a fairly regular basis to discuss lessons on ChinesePod? I envision weekly (or biweekly) meetings where such a group grabs some coffee and discusses a couple of assigned lessons. I generally study the Upper Intermediate/Advanced/Media lessons, but I am open to suggestions that anyone might have.
Is anyone interested in creating such a group? If so, let's make this thing happen.
New lesson idea? Please contact us.
