      Anybody up for joining a group chat on hellotalk?   It's a bit of an experiment to give a different angle to learning.    Basically looking for a hsk 3/4 level person to join the group. A HSK 5 is OK if you have weak listening skills - you are looking to improve the overall listening aspect on material that you know   The group aims more focussed on listening skills and speaking rather than idle chatter and the aim is to have a proactive approach to with an approximate 50:50 split of voice and text messages in English and Chinese.    Quite a lot of people get short snippets of free time during the day so the recordings and corrections function on hellotalk might work out quite useful.    The group won't be large. Maximum of 12 initially to help get people more involved.    Please PM me for more details.    This is non-commercial.

      I am trying to find a specific tv series that I had a small role in 20 years ago when I was living in Nanjing. I forgot the name, and I only have some rough details about where/when it was shot and what it was about. I tried to get people to find it for me on fiverr.com, but no luck. Does anyone have tips on how I should go about finding it?

      Does anyone know of any resources for politics directed at intermediate learners? I find a lot of the time I want to talk about it but I'm missing so much vocabulary that it makes it really difficult.   Also looking for stuff relating to medicine and space, which is quite random, but I figured I may as well ask.   Cheers!

      Hello I recently purchased some blooming teabags from China and they said to have these ingredients in: "Common flowers used in flowering teas include globe amaranth, carnation, chrysanthemum, jasmine, sweet Olive, lily, tea flowers, peony and marigold" I was wondering if someone could help me identify them? Thanks a lot! https://sites.google.com/view/teaflowers/home?authuser=1 I had to put them on a link as the file size was too large even after compression.

      Background: Girl is a traditional PRC Chinese lady working in a factory We are coworkers in different depts, we sometimes work together. Usual signs of flirtation, staring etc. Then one day I took the courage to ask for her number, she got frightened off. She was totally nervous and said she needed to attend to something. I was kinda devastated and surprised at her actions. Couple of hours later, bumped into her in the hallway. She was on all smiles and even greeted me. I didn’t think too much of it as I thought she was just being civil. When we knocked off we bumped into each other at the locker again. This time she and her friend were teasing me big time. They were singing “let’s wait for the handsome man behind us”. Purposely walking slowly for me to catch up. I was confused as I thought she would react differently like avoiding me and stuff like that but instead I was teased. Following week with my mind set to move on from her, I was minding my own business with another co-worker and she suddenly SCREAMED out to me. Needless to say I was scared shitless. She then asked if she could have my wechat ID instead, I was totally weird out. I’ve texted her for these few days, she was quite responsive but don’t seem to carry on the conversation. Sadly she doesn’t ask me any questions. We converse a bit on the phone. She doesn’t ask me anything either but tends to elaborate a lot whenever I ask about her personal stuff. Is she playing hard to get or just totally uninterested? I really don’t quite get her. If she’s not interested she doesn’t have to ask for my WeChat id.

      I've been listening to the lectures on American Mandarin Society podcasts (highly recommended by the way - good for listening skills).  I was thinking that it might be good to have a transcription to work through for various reasons. Just wanted to check here before I begin - what sort of level would you say the auto transcriptions are at for longer pieces in Mandarin (40 mins + in this case, but in what I consider a very clear, standard 普通话)? Also, any particular methods, software anyone would recommend? Quick and simple would be ideal.   I had a quick look on here and the only things of note are a few years old (at least what I could find). I imagine there has been a lot of rapid development so worth another shout.    Thanks.
