Mandarin and English Conversations at HSPH in Longwood Medical Area 下午6点到晚上8点


Mandarin speakers want to practice English?

English speakers want to learn Mandarin?

Our stable location is in Kresge 201 in the most gracious and globally conscious Harvard School of Public Health.

All Mandarin speakers (and English-speakers, too) need to register IN ADVANCE to get an HSPH building permission for the night.

E-Mail [masked] to register your intent AND sign YES on this meetup.


We would like your request by 4 pm the day before the Tuesday evening event. If you sign up later, that might still incentivize others to attend, but I will not be able to request a building pass for you (you may still be able to get into the building).

Harvard Square to LMA is about 30 minutes on #66 bus or the M2 Harvard bus.
Green Line E-Line comes to the building.
Walking from the Orange Line takes about 5 minutes.
Walking from Brookline is about 10 minutes.
MFA, NEU, Wentworth, and Colleges of the Fenway are adjacent.
Route 9 comes right into the area.
Street parking is FREE from 6 pm onward.

    We had a GREAT TIME. We left AFTER 9:30 pm, and A VERY large group went out to eat dine in Chinatown AFTER 10:30 pm.

    We had four (4) doctors, one research pharmacologist, some medical research fellows, lots of people in business (one entrepreneurial investor in China), some ESL students, some "quants" and a statistician and computer science people, a film producer from Rome who wanted to interview Chinese students who are in the USA, a lawyer, some people in or from racially mixed families, numerous Americans trying to learn Mandarin, one South American who speaks Spanish as a first language and was happy to practice English (and Mandarin), whichever is spoken, a husband of a researcher in pediatric oncology, and more.

    I've received ~30 notices from persons OUTSIDE Harvard that they are attending, and a number of OTHER notices (phone, e-mails) from INSIDE Harvard that folks are attending, so I expect to have about a dozen or a dozen and a half.

    We can discuss that in Mandarin (and English) (a) THAT situation (the number of people attending), along with (b) the (suggested, below) "scenario" of buying a used car AND (c) the previously mentioned topic of the upcoming meeting between the Presidents of PR China and the USA.
