another lost English speaker!

Postby abbasidanyal » Mon Mar 08, 2010 7:23 pm

Hello all,

I'm new to Yangzhou and can't speak a word of Chinese (yet). I'm keen to meet other expats, but also if there are any Chinese people out there who want a language buddy let me know.

I'm 24, from England, was last in Glasgow, Scotland doing a degree in English Literature.

Hey mate. I'm a 23 yr old English guy working in YZ too... There's a few expats around if you can manage to find some. But if you need a contact I can give you my number, I know how hard it is to first get here and not know anyone else.

Hope things are goin alright dude

Thanks for the reply Steve,

I'm doing OK, apart from the cold but that's only meant to last a few more days. I've got a decent job at Shane English school, and there's a few other Brits working there all in there 20s - Amy, Yas and Rob. They're a pretty friendly bunch.

Send me an email: abbasi_danyal@yahoo.co.uk and we can maybe arrange to go for a beer or something? It would be great to meet some other English speakers. Like someone was saying, we need to stengthen out expat community! Or, if there already is one, I want to find it!
