For the most part, the Changchun Friends website is not very active and has been superseded by the Tencent "Wechat" app by the local expat community.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 The archived information here is still useful, but some may be out of date.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

Jodie you know this?

The English language owes a great debt to Shakespeare. He invented over 1700 of our common words by changing nouns into verbs, changing verbs into adjectives, connecting words never before used together, adding prefixes and suffixes, and devising words wholly new!

I am just going to mention a few

control (noun)

Hope you like it!

A bit off topic?! But can anyone suggest any good learning software for android or apple to learn Chinese by myself?

I Imagine Oscar Wilde to have had a languorous manner

Ok- how about this Spittalfields- a place in London but sounds great!

Languorous - another nice word!

Madrugada - according to my understanding stands for that time between night and day when everything is still and calm- think of that point about dawn when the day is full of potential but has yet to fully open up into the activity of morning. Beautiful!

Sorry Ferney- it is spelt Madrugada. But I prefer my spelling!
