Hi everyone,I am a chinese girl and I want to make friends here. I study English as my foreign language and I would like to talk to you all. Maybe I can tell you something if any of you are interested in China.
What do you think of the Japanese?

Hardly any blacks in China at all. You would definitely look out of place.

Just thinking the same thing! And welcome to TSR, have a welcome :sheep:

Over here we don't have much choice as to what languages we can learn, the only ones i think people have the option of learning are french/german/spanish/russian

and maybe welsh if you live in wales
You can learn all the major languages in England.. including Chinese/Japanese.

I don't wish to sound patronising, but considering how different Chinese is to English, your fluency is amazing! It makes you realise how bad we are at languages in the UK - I wish I could speak Chinese as well as you speak English!!
Aha, Chinese is not too hard to learn, and speaking chinese is easier than writing chinese words. Maybe you could begin with talking if you want to study chinese. Wish you good luck.

Is that true? I had thought that people could learn almost all kinds of languages in the U.K.

I'll be learning Chinese at university:p: I think what she meant was that Oriental languages, and the like, aren't readily available for most people before uni.

China is a friendly nation and we don't have racial discrimination here. In cities where a high percentage of people have received college education, you will get a warm welcome by people around you. Sometimes you may meet a person who never see foreigners before, he may feel a little curious at you, but I am sure that this is just curiosity, not discrimination.

GCSEs are the qualification that the Brits obtain before they do the 'A' levels.

So.. if you don't mind me asking, what kind of stuff did you do to prepare beforehand (books etc?) and what kind of stuff did you put in your PS.. was it specific or just general about why you would enjoy Chinese? In fact.. could I see your PS? If so you could PM it to me, if not no worries

I am not a mature student, but I do, however, have a 'non traditional' background. Thus, I don't think my personal statement would help you in the least. I can offer some general advice and suggest books to read though - I'll PM you.

On Chinese news/newspapers, do you get a lot of international news, or is it just news from China? Do you hear much about things like the Iraq War/Afghanistan? What about Iran? Are there many Western shows on Chinese TV? Do you get much Western music? Is Chinese music any good? Do you have Ipods in China? Do many people own one? What do you think about China's high level of executions (highest number of executions per year in the world, it performed more than 90% of all the world's executions in 2004)? Would you like to see China become a democracy, or do you prefer the present system? Are you using Windows on your computer? What do Chinese people eat for breakfast?

I'm 18 years old and I still go to chinese school... haha. But I can speak cantonese fluently.. I guess because I've grown up speaking it at home. It's quite good knowing another language!

Hi! I'm a Malaysian but currently staying in Scotland. Nice to meet u! I always want to know some one from China! I can speak and write chinese, Malay, and English!

having Chinese as my mother tongue I think learning chinese language is easier than English because we don't need past or prescent tenses!! ( do u agree?)

Being able to speak good English is not easy. Being able to understand different kind of accents is much more harder:p: (i experience this)

It stands for the 'General Certificate of Secondary Education'. It's one of two major public exam stages of high school in the UK, the other one being 'A-level', which is 'Advanced Level'. Both stages take place during the last four years of high school.

Basically, this is similar to the college entrance examination for high schools in China: 高考.
