Hmmm...maybe just a little slow. This is a busy time of year for a lot of people: proms, graduations, weddings, gardening, etc. Who knows?

When the work's all done and the sun's settin' low,

I pull out my fiddle and I rosin up the bow.

@KindaScratchy 

You could be right. It's coming into winter here now and everything is slowing down.

But next month I'll be back in the warm half of the world for a week and a half. We are going to have a bit of a look at China.

WOW, John, seem's like an awfull long way to go just for one extra string. rofl

Seriously though, I have a friend in, Taiyuan City, Shanxi Province, which is S. West of Beijing, who I have been tutoring in English for the last two years. We get together on average of about 3 time's a week now, it was almost everyday for about 18 month's. She is a 45 year old lady who is "crazy" about English, she's married with a 20 year old daughter who attend's college in Dalian City, located at the tip of a peninsular between the "Bohai Sea" and the "Yellow Sea".

I'm sure you will have a wonderfull time there.

Happy traveling, John.   place-3596

 

Ken.

We use a China based program called, "QQ International" which is like "Skype", but I like it better,there are more option's and easier to navigate around.

I realise that your language contact with your friend has been working both ways.

Myself, I speak Japanese. I went to university in the Kyoto area

@ Ferret.  LOL, no John, I'm not Chinese. Actually I'm of Swedish decent, I was born and raised in, Royal Oak, Michigan, USA.

I mentioned, QQ International in my other post, QQ has a translate feature, so I copied it and pasted it in QQ, hit the translate button and got what it said, copied and pasted the answer back here in the forum.

I don't speak Chinese at all. I'm totally English speaking.
