Hi, I'm NOT learning Mandarin at the moment, because I want to learn Cantonese first; however, there's a Couchsurfer Language Exchange almost every Wednesday at the Starbucks at Central (c. 9pm), and we have a guy that knows French, several Cantonese/Mandarin speakers, several German speakers/learners, and last week there was a Spanish girl that wanted to practice her Mandarin. No idea if she will be there next week though.

I'm specializing in a language teaching technique called Language Hunting: http://www.languagehunters.org/ , and I thought that might be interesting to you, because you seem to be interested in learning many languages. It's involving mostly game play, and when you're practiced in it, you can use it to rapidly learn any language, as long as you have a fluent speaker at hand. I've done it for Portuguese, and am currently learning Cantonese and teaching English and German with it. So if you want a demonstration, just come to the language exchange on Wednesday, or call me, and we can meet somewhere else.

I also contacted Jannah, and she said she might be there on Wednesday too, so that would be a great opportunity to do a Cantonese/German session!

Let me know what you think :)

Hello all, I've heard of that Wednesday meeting for a long time and didn't have a chance to try it yet...

I am a native Cantonese speaker and speak pretty good Mandarin (comments given by Beijing Local ppl!), spoke some French before and forgot almost all... and now learning German! Really need to find a way to practice the speaking! Seems it will be quite an interesting meeting and would love to join for the coming Wednesday~ Hope can see u all there~
