漢語角 Chinese Conversation Meetup

Are you interested in learning the Chinese language or improving your Chinese speaking skills?

Come to our Chinese Conversation Meetup to practice, where you can also learn more about Chinese culture, customs, food, and make some new friends too. If you are currently taking a Chinese class at school or pursuing self-study, feel free to bring your textbooks to study/practice with fellow group members.

Some of us are almost always there until the 茶坊 closes at midnight, so feel free to pop in late if you can't make it earlier. Do not be discouraged from coming if you see a small number of RSVPs. There are many people who come regularly and never RSVP (despite getting their hands slapped repeatedly for this). Typical attendance at these is 20 to 30.

We welcome all levels of Chinese speakers, from beginner to native speaker, as long as you are interested in learning. Feel free to join us and enjoy great conversations in Mandarin or the obscure dialect of your choice.

In exchange for providing free space for us to hold this meetup, it is expected that each person attending order at least one food or drink item. In addition, please do not bring in any outside food or drink.

The time that people show up varies from week to week. If you show up at 19:00 and can't find anyone, please wait around. Sometimes there's a big group right from the beginning, and other weeks no one shows up until 19:30 or 20:00.

If you need any help or materials for learning Chinese, please let us know. We are always willing to assist you in a task that we know is not always easy.

Have any ideas or suggestions for future meetups? Please feel free to shout them out. We're happy to hear from our members.

See you at the Meetup! 週四見!

    Dinner at Mr. Dumpling.
    Thursday, April 3, 8:00 PM - 9:30 PM.

    Just like two weeks ago, during the regular 漢語角 Chinese Conversation Meetup this Thursday, some of us will be going to have dinner at Mr. Dumpling, which is behind 99 Ranch within reasonable walking distance. Feel free to stop by and join us for some delicious food, including 鍋貼 ("guō​ tiē", or potstickers)、小龍包 ("xiǎo ​lóng bāo", or steamed soup-filled buns)、and 火鍋 ("huǒ​ guō", or hot pot). After dinner, we can return to the regular meetup at Tea n More. For more info about Mr. Dumpling, see their Yelp page:

    Hope to see you there!
