Q: I want to find a language exchange partner. Any advice?

Hi.  I  am a  native English Speaker and want to find a one on one language exchange partner to practice Mandarin or Cantonese.  I live in a suburb of Guangzhou called Zengcheng. Any suggestions on how to find one?

"

I first came to China twenty years ago.  Guangzhou is a lot better than it used to be.  The people here will actually give way in for traffic at times.  Go some places in China, and you will think that they are trying to hit you.  We may never get used to it, but we do have to accept it since we are in their country.  Now when they come to my country, I will tell--in Chinese--when they have forgotten to care about human life and obey the laws of the road."

 

So, a 20 year Chinahand has no idea how to find a Chinese speaker in China.

A:Hmmm - I'm sure I answered this (and some other posts...). What you don't seem to get is that an older population is bad for a country... the expenses in looking after the elderly (welfare, hospitals, etc) start taking up more of the tax cake - a cake that's getting smaller because there are less people contributing to it (ie, workers). From an earth impact perspective - good! But from most other perspectives - bad. -- Shining_brow
