Hi, boys and girls. I'm a French learner and I live in Hangzhou at present, recently I've got a new idea about learning a language -- travel in the nearby cities and exchange language skills.
If you are happen to be learning chinese, and I am learning french at the same time. ￢_￢ Funny things will happen.
As I am quite familiar with cities in China especially the Yangtze River Delta, I can show you around. Cites such as Shanghai, Jiaxing, Suzhou, Hanzhou and so on. Don't worry, hard mode is OK to me, I've traveling to T1bet on my bicycle before, so I can deal with anything.
Here comes the most interesting part. HOW DOES IT WORK.
While traveling, if we are visiting a place, for example "a commercial street", you tell me in chinese "商业街", I will modify if it's wrong. Then I tell you in french “une rue commerciale”, and you modify it if I am wrong. In a word, I speak unskilled french and you speak unskilled chinese. It will be hard to communicate but we are practicing hard and last all the day.
So far, these are my ideas, you can tell me your ideas also. It will be a fantastic and high efficient way to learn a new language. Also, if you want to travel with several people from different regions, that's also interesting, worth to try.
Waiting for your news.
