Americans Studying Chinese

November 20, 2018

I am an American studying for a masters degree in teaching Chinese as a foreign language at a university in northeastern China. I have been trying to find Americans with mid to high Mandarin Chinese proficiency levels to take a survey about studying Chinese rhetorical devices. I need the results of the survey to write my graduation paper.

I have found it much more difficult than I thought it would be to find Americans with mid to high level Chinese proficiency. At our university, other than myself, there currently are only two other American students who have gone beyond beginner level.

I have been trying other methods to find more people to take my survey, and was hoping you could help. Would you please, if your Chinese level is high enough, are American, and your first language isn’t Mandarin, take the survey?

The survey can be found at:

Thank you for your time,
