many Chinese people who ask for English lessons, offer free Chinese lessons in return. Just wait to be asked!

Find a Uni student, there are plenty that will be willing to give free Chinese lessons in exchange for English lessons.

If you're single, I recommend finding a Chinese partner. You can teach each other your languages.

Post an ad on the Beijinger, and find a Chinese language partner. The deals that get worked out usually involve meeting in a coffee shop once/twice a week for two hours--one hour in Chinese, and the other in English. The ones I paired up with in Beijing were all wonderful. Other than that--Beijing is an expensive city. Unless your employer offers you lessons, you aren't going to find free formal classes taught by free teachers who cater to Westerners for the joy of it lying around.

A lot of the schools in Beijing will offer the first class free like a free trial.

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
