For the most part, the Changchun Friends website is not very active and has been superseded by the Tencent "Wechat" app by the local expat community.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 The archived information here is still useful, but some may be out of date.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.

Changchun Friends

a great way to get involved

Looking to buy a electronic dictionary. Help wanted!

Hey every one, I have been living in China for almost two years and during that time I have been using a old school "paper" dictionary to help me with my Chinese studies. Sadly now I have reached a point where using a normal dictionary is not just enough, so I have decided to invest my hard saved student money in one of these Electronic Dictionaries.


The thing  is: I just don't want to settle for any cheap Edictionary, because these are usually oriented to native Chinese speakers who are learning a foreign language, and the software is usually very awkward to use. You see I am looking for something that is more user friendly, that lets me me write characters & that translates whole sentences, no just single isolated words, something like this


Now my problem is, that I cant really afford to buy a 1400 RMB dictionary, so I was wondering if ANY ONE could HELP me find a USED version of the "Mandarin King F109" (中文通F109) or a CHEAPER ALTERNATIVE of the same.


Thank you very much! :)

I have a decent dictionary that I got for a good deal for about 600 RMB about 10 months ago, I would be willing to part with it for 300.  


here is a picture dictionary


its called 快译通

color, has head phone jack, you can play games, watch videos and, most importantly, it comes with a pen to write characters.



How does it perform? has it had lots of damage? Where can I call you?
