Thanks, 保罗. Will make this a sticky topic. You're now personally responsibly for posting on the first day of every month, though...

I see you're based in Europe. Sign up at Dalarna university online for free Chinese courses. I'd sign up for Written Chinese 3.

 

Wow, that is so cool! Thanks so much for the tip, I'm on their website now, checking how to sign up.

Basically all countries in the European get free education at Swedish universities (I believe that's how it works). So I've been studying there for a year now doing 45 credits a semester. It's been free so far, but I believe when I start courses next September (2020) I'll have to pay tuition fees because of Brexit (as I'm from England). The courses are fine, not amazing. On my course the classes are really mixed. There are people who have passed HSK5 in the same class as people who still can't really read and struggle to pronounce a lot of words. As it's free, it's not got the most serious students learning there. But as long as you turn up to class online, do the assignments and take part in the lectures, you'll see a big improvement.

I'm really psyched to see so many motivated ppl with measureable goals. Really cool. But I'm a little surprised there are much more 'non-interactive' study goals than 'interactive' ones. Isn't the goal of learning a language to, well, use the language? Anyone think they can sub out one of their flash card goals or vocab lists for conversations or social activities with Chinese? 

 

I promise, it will be at least 3x more effective than looking at a piece of paper 😁

I am still trying to figure out the best way to make more Chinese friends.

Read Takeshi's advice here (and his other posts in that thread too). In summary: making Chinese friends is great, but if your main goal (or an important goal) of that friendship is language practice, anyone who speaks Chinese with, to or at you suffices, they don't have to be friends. You don't even have to like them.
