Good someone is trying at least. Actually, it's quite upsetting the scene hasn't really taken off in Chengdu yet, or in China for that matter. Panda was the best club in Chengdu. Not just the music, but the venue itself. People here just aren't really open to different sounds, or anything different really. Electronic music (and its numerous genres) is often just too abstract for most people here. Also, personal taste in music is quite boring here in Chengdu. Not to say rock and pop music is bad, just that people listen to same, or similar sounding, rock and pop music over and over.
If you are interesting in Electronic Music, check out www.di.fm. Probably the most popular internet radio website with multiple genres to explore. I've been listening to it for nearly 10 years now.
I just posted it...
Check here for info on the scholarship.
The popcorn man at it again?
Take the words/phrases you learn and use them with people. That's it. Get them from everywhere. TV, movies, internet, other people, write them down, try to remember when the time comes. If you're pronunciation and grammar are bad, then you'll need a tutor(or a patient friend) for one, and book explaining grammar for the other. I think people constantly look for the secret formula for studying, but it just doesn't exist. To sound more professional I guess you need professional vocabulary/grammar and have to be in a place where that kind of langauge is used. Probably not hanging around your friends.
