For the most part, the Changchun Friends website is not very active and has been superseded by the Tencent "Wechat" app by the local expat community.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 The archived information here is still useful, but some may be out of date.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

Language teachers' discussion group and idea exchange


Language teachers' discussion group and idea exchange

This is a group for all language teachers interested in sharing ideas and supporting each other.  I hope this will become a place for a kind of informal professional development, where we can ask questions and share our good ideas, as well as a place to vent about our frustrations and help each other through those rough days! Let's pool our creativity and develop a strong professional network!

The person who founded this group has unfortunately left Changchun. However, I think it is a good group and will try to keep it going in the future. Unfortunately, due to time, the next meeting may not be until the end of February

Hi everyone, this is Margaret, i'm glad to join this group and i believe that we are all here to do something to make the group better. Let's get this group alive! I'm thinking, as i'm Chinese, i'd like to share things about China with you( no matter where you are from, as long as you are wanting to learn and know about China, to know Changchun), we can be a group, discuss things about study, love, life, anything. We share our ideas and thoughts. If you are interested, please leave a comment here!

I think the location is great!

April meeting next week.  Check the events calendar.  Same location OK or should we change?  Some people mentioned the beer is a little expensive there...

I don't know - a blog seems like such a commitment!  :-)

I just noticed that Pearson Longman is offering a free online workshop on using guided discovery (my topic from last week's meeting).  If you are interested, follow the link below.  If you're not a member, you have to join, but it's free.

Also, I forgot to mention, if anyone wants copies of my handouts, send me a message with your email address, and I'll send them to you!

I agree with Marcella - grammar is fantastic! Can you believe but a few years ago I studied Sanskrit grammar - Panini's  book which is a masterpiece - opened my eyes to the meaning of language

Anyway, great night and thanks!
