Group Description

The Sinological Society

Westerners in China

Is your first language English? Do you live / have you lived
in a Chinese-speaking area-- Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macau,
mainland China, or Singapore? Come share your experiences
and questions with like company.

We are the highly-publicised society founded in 1997 that
met in Taichung City, Taiwan (in real life). After
temporary residence at Haoyao (thanks to Callum Maclay),
we've moved online with our own e-forum.

Our Archives include some past topics from the SS's
fora held in Taichung, plus the weekly Sinological talks
broadcast over Taiwan through ICRT (International
Community Radio Taipei) in 1998.

Our purpose is to better understand the language and
society in which we live(d) through discussion of Chinese
language, culture, lifestyles, history, news headlines,
