For the most part, the Changchun Friends website is not very active and has been superseded by the Tencent "Wechat" app by the local expat community. This website is maintained sporadically, people may still join and membership is still open, but if you are a spammer, stay away. The archived information here is still useful, but some may be out of date. There are plans to make it more useful for static information in the future. If anyone needs information about Changchun or China, you may post a message and it probably will get a response but not immediately.

Event Description

Hello! My English name is Joseph. I am a graduate student in Jilin Unversity. My major is English-Chinese Interpreting. I am preparing my degree paper which requires me to have a real interpreting experience (a practice report on a particular interpreting task).


Now, I have collected related materials about the PUPPET MANCHURIAN PALACE in Changchun, and I’D LIKE TO INVITE A FOREIGN FRIEND (Native English Speaker) to visit this historical site. I will be your guide interpreter (interpreting what the museum explainer is saying), and I will use a digital recorder to record the sound  of the whole interpreting process and use them in my paper.


I will pay for the tickets (otherwise you will pay 80 yuan to visit by yourself), and the fee for the museum explainer (60 yuan).  You don’t have to pay anything, all you have to do is just to visit there.


If you are interested in the stories about this last emperor of China and the history of modern China as well as Changchun, you can contact me. Tel : 13321416296  While you are visiting, you are helping me too, because I need your participation to prepare my paper. Thank you in advance!

Thank you Downtown David! I just returned from the Palace with Steve Mellow. He is very kind and enthusiastic. All foreign friends here are willing to help.

Thank you for your support, David. But I have had an appointment with Richard. We plan to visit on August 18th. If Richard can't go, then I will invite you. If you are free and willing to go then, we can go together. Is that OK with you?  If you don't mind, you can leave me your cell phone number through message in this forum. Thank you for your support.
