Regular Interpretation & Speaking CJK Practice

To CJK Experts and Native Speakers:

We practice like this (including, but not limited to):

Session 1 (7pm-8pm): Interpretation methods practice

For example, words, phrases or sentences interpretation, target language repeating, shadowing and summarization, etc.

We set three tables to practice Chinese, Japanese and Korean separately. The session is basically for intermediate & above Chinese, Japanese and Korean learners.

Session 2 (8pm-9pm): Topic-based speaking practice

Summary, speak or discuss the topic you are provided or you have prepared by your target language (Chinese, Japanese, Korean).

Also, everybody can move to any table as they want.

If you would like to practice English, please join our regular Saturday meetup generously hosted by Ajani.

Looking forward to practicing with you all!

    大家好! 下面就是我跟我的"桌子伙伴"上星期发展的游戏! 希望你们都享受!
    我把这些规则和 printable deck of cards 放在 "More --> Files". 我会明天带来几副。

    "Word Rummy" 游戏规则
    目标: 编造的词比你对手编造的多。
    玩法:每张纸牌上都写着一个常用汉字。发牌人给每个玩人三张纸牌,还在桌子中心摆三张正面 (face-up) 的。玩人轮流。轮到你时,你试一试用的纸牌之一跟桌子上的纸牌之一来组成一个词或短语。比方说,如果你拿着"成", "正", "为", 桌子有 "数", "作", "功", 你就可以作 "成功" 或者 "作为"。

    如果你什么词(短语)都不能编造,就把你的纸牌之一丢弃放在桌子上。(现在桌子有四张大家都可以用的纸牌。)然后你选一张新纸牌(只要还剩)。

    如果你能编造一个词(短语),就把你的纸牌和桌子的纸牌一起放在你前面。然后选一张新纸牌(只要还剩),而且放另外一张纸牌在桌子中心(那儿总是有至少三张)。

    谁都不能编造词的时候,游戏就结束了,谁组成的词最多,谁就赢了!

      Hi Phil, I think of doing debate for this time. But we can discuss whether to play the game.
