    Smile Lunch Buddies- Cantonese/English for Mandarin

    Hi,

    I am an Australian Chinese looking for buddies in Central. Other than practicing my Mandarin, I do enjoy trying different places for lunch ! Hope hearing from any of you ! BTW I am a female.

    Cheers!

    Mandarin is not a second language. it is only a second dialect to most of us. There is a simple rule - practise and learn from mistakes.

    Also, type in Chinese and try using pinyin as the input method. That will help too.

    If OP is concerned about intention being misconstrued, don't feel obliged - simply decline any "dates". If OP is comfortable, go ahead and stick to the original agenda to practise Mandarin.
