Greetings all, da jia hao!

This meetup is for those interested in studying, practicing or speaking Mandarin Chinese. 

We meet (more or less) weekly and alternate between all-levels and advanced meetups. Anyone can come to the all-levels meetups regardless of their ability level. At the advanced meetup, no English is allowed so you must be comfortable carrying on full conversations in Mandarin. Short translations of words will be allowed but that’s it! If you’re not sure if you’re up for it yet, just ask. It’s good to push yourself into immersive situations once you’ve got the basics down! 

We will mostly meet to sit and chat but occasionally go out and do activities together with as much spoken Mandarin as possible. ABC or any Chinese background welcome of course as are native speakers who are welcome to practice English or find language exchange partners at our all-levels meetups and then come help out the intermediate/advanced folks at the no-english meetups. 

Topics, suggestions, ideas and comments are always welcome.
