I saw some people having trouble with Chinese practice, as their level was a lot lower than the conversations that were going on.
I haven’t tried them, either, as I’m a complete beginner in Mandarin.
This is probably also the case for other languages, so it might be an idea to host beginner sessions? I know those currently running state all levels are welcome, but it’s still a challenge for many people to start speaking when intermediate and advanced learners are present.
I am very interested in adding beginner practice sessions for a couple of languages. Last year, we had some Spanish sessions that were marked specifically for beginners and low intermediates, and these worked well and served as a great confidence booster. Have you submitted a request to add a beginner Chinese practice session to the Programme?
Okay, I’ll post it. What days and times (including time zone) are you most likely / most frequently going to be available? Also, anyone else who may be interested in Beginners’ Mandarin Chinese conversation practice, would you please also share your availability?
