Q: Anyone interested in starting an English Corner up in Baiyun?

Hello you all, 

 

I would like to start an English Corner somewhere near Baiyun Airport, or at least nearby.

I was wondering if people would be up for it. 

I think it would be a good way to network and generally meet new people.

 

I noticed that most of the English corners that I found online were rather downtown, or what I assume to be downtown, and it is really far from me, so I can't participate.

 

Any Chinese, or even foreigners, interested in an English Corner in GZ Baiyun? If yes, I will arrange a meeting point and time for everyone to exchange on several topics and progress together in English. Smile
 

Thank you and have a nice day!

Usually English corners are forced on by someone's employer as part of the job. Not many people are going to volunteer to be surrounded by a mob and asked questions without some form of compensation. Unless it's at a whore house and they are giving away sexual favors to speak with an English person. Other than that you are going to be hard-pressed to find people to do for free in their free time.

But hey...kudos to you for doing it.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
