Forums > Study > Studying mandarin in Yunnan versus other provinces

definitely one of the worst places to study mandarin, if you're the kind of person who learns through speaking with locals etc

the dialect is different, but not different enough that you can separate it in your mind from standard mandarin.

if you're a real real beginner thought and only learning for a semester or 2 in school then possibly it's ok, but in my experience people who learn mandarin here do it much more slowly

why all the hate for Chenggong? :D

some people prefer to live surrounded by parks and fresh air. and it's not like it's impossible to go downtown if you need.... well, whatever it is that the center has

Didi works best there. not many regular taxis around these days. it's quite spread out so depends on where you're going it's not thaaat easy to get around

there are two or three big shopping centers in different places... lots of huge parks.

tianshui jiayuan and shili jincheng residential areas are pretty close to the hills, and a short distance to the university town subway station. there are lots of new apartment buildings popping up as well in between university town and old chenggong/dounan area (a tiny bit closer to downtown)

what a great place, just a short walk from the subway station but looks like a hidden wonderland in the middle of the forest.
always cool people and cheap drinks, best parties in kunming!
