London Cantonese Language December Meetup

Welcome to the London Cantonese Language (倫敦廣東話) meetup group.

We are an informal group consisting of a variety of people who can speak Cantonese as their first or second language. The group encourages every member to have a go at communicating in Cantonese although you are not obliged to do so, you may speak in English if you much prefer. However, we think this would be a good opportunity for you to practice your Cantonese with fellow members.

From members' requests, it has been decided that we will rotate days to meet throughout the year. On odd-numbered months, meetups will be on Sundays, while on even-numbered months, they'll be on Saturdays.

As a summary of the day's event:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1. 12-1pm: Meet at Cafe Nero for quick informal chat and drinks (no need to RSVP if only coming for this), we normally gather downstairs but if it is closed then we may be at the back of the cafe.
2. 1.30pm-3pm: Head to a pre-booked restaurant for some scrumptious, succulent dim sum (點心)
3. 3pm~: Optional Free-time - usually go for drinks afterwards for extended social chat in a local bar
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hope you can join us.

Please note, you are NOT required to RSVP if coming only for the coffee/free time session. Simply post a comment saying so or send us a message indicating this.

If you wish to come along for Dim Sum, please confirm by RSVP before the deadline date. We appreciate if members could update their RSVP if you decide later that you cannot come so the space can be reallocated to other members.

If you miss the deadline or there are no spaces left, you are more than welcome to join us for the coffee or later at the free time drinks, just send us a message for our contact details.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Any further queries, please feel free to send us a message.
