• Hi everyone,

    My name is Maaike, I just moved to Yantai a few weeks ago to teach English here. I'm going to be here for at least a year and I'd like to make some friends! Are there any CS meetups here in Yantai? I've been looking through the message archive of this group, but any messages about meetings seem to be pretty old! So I thought I'd just post a new message and hopefully someone can tell me about any meetings that are happening, or maybe we can start a new one. :D

    I'm also looking for a Chinese teacher. I've been studying Chinese on my own for a bit, but I'm not progressing very fast as I don't know anyone patient enough to test my newly gained skills on. :D Can anyone recommend any private teachers or language schools in Yantai, or do you know anyone who would be willing to set up a regular language exchange (once a week, for example)? I'm an English teacher, so obviously I can help you with English, but I can also teach you Dutch (I am Dutch). Or the basics of French, German or Finnish. :D

    Looking forward to meeting new people!

    Hi Maaike,

    Welcome to Yantai! Actually I myself is relatively new to this city too. (came here from Beijing a yr ago)

    Where about are you in Yantai? not sure if you are only into professional language tutoring or not. If you are also interested in casual language exchange, there is a weekly gathering in a cafe in Kai Fa Qu. A group of local English learners gather every Sunday to practice English. They also organize outing trips from time to time. You will make some local friends there and possibly some language exchange tutors.

    For serious language courses, I think Cristiano knows better...

    If you are not far from Kai Faqu, you can check out Lakasa, a western restaurant by the beach on Friday. It is a popular place among the international community here.

    Hope this helps

    Hi Cristiano and Mack,

    Many thanks for your messages! It's nice to hear there are at least some active CS-ers in Yantai. :D

    I actually live in Kai Fa Qu, so the language exchange meeting sounds like a lot of fun! When is it exactly? I'd love to attend and make some new friends. :D

    All the best,
    Maaike

    There should be one tomorrow morning from 9:30-11:00 on the 2nd floor of a cafe named Shang Ke Lin(尚客林休闲餐厅)which is right across the street from the shopping center Cai Yun Cheng. You can't miss it.

    Thanks for the details, Mack! I know the place, but unfortunately I have to work on Sunday mornings until 11:15, so I won't be able to attend the meetings... If anything changes in the meetup time I'd love to hear about it though!

    Thanks,
    Maaike

    Moi, Maaike,

    Welcome to Yantai! I am a native but not in Yantai. It is Laizhou( if you have heard this small city) in the west of Yantai.

    I am just curious that you can speak Finnish. I only know the basics although I have been in Finland for 4 years :P Also I am interested in learning German. I have been in Germany for half year either.But my place is not so close to Yantai. Would you join me in Facebook (Yongjie Huang) or Skype (bazooka270). my hp 13645446286.

    Hi guys,
    Thanks for all the friendly messages, but I have left Yantai by now! I posted the initial message over a year ago. :D I'm sure there are plenty of other foreigners wanting to make friends and learning Chinese, so I hope someone will respond to you!
