你好!If you're looking to learn or practice Chinese, you've come to the right place! If you're a native Mandarin speaker and would like to practice your English, we would also love to help! 如果你是汉语母语者而你想练习你的英文口语,我们想帮助你!

Meetup Types

While our group does have social or culture-related meetups from time to time, most of our events center around the language.

• 谈话 (conversation) meetups

Please keep your English to a minimum at meetups specifically labeled “谈话”. Even if your spoken Chinese is limited, use whatever you know. When learning a language, keep in mind that words don't come easily in the middle of a conversation until you've used them over and over again.

• 语言交换 (language exchange) meetups

Since native Chinese speakers are kind enough to attend and help us with our Chinese, we want to return the favor and help them with their English. Normally for two hours, these meetups are broken up into four 30-minute sessions—two English-only and two Chinese-only. We may split into two groups of beginner and advanced, depending on the turnout.

• 社交/文化 (social/cultural) meetups

We go out to eat, see shows, attend concerts, sing karaoke, and do anything else our members want. Feel free to send suggestions to the organizers. Chinese isn't required but you are welcome to use it.

• 读书会 (book club)

We have a book club for advanced language learners!

Group Rules

• Cancellation

We reserve the right to cancel any meetups where very few members RSVP'd.

当参与者不足时,我们保留取消活动的权利。

• Attendance

If you RSVP “Yes” to an event with limited seating and need to cancel, please give the host at least 24 hours notice. If you fail to give adequate notice or are a no-show for a limited attendance event, the host may ban you from future events. Members with a history of no-shows will automatically be moved to the waiting list.

如果你报名座位有限的活动而需要取消,请在24小时内提前通知主持人。如果你没有充分地通知或缺席,主持人有权禁止你参与未来的活动。有缺席历史的成员会被移到待定列表。

• Half Hour Rule

All conversation meetups will be in Mandarin only. But if native Mandarin speakers wish to practice their English, we can temporarily switch to English-only for 30 minutes. Note that use of this rule is at the discretion of the event host.

在谈话活动中,汉语为主。如果有汉语母语者想练习英语,我们可以暂时切换到只用英语的模式,延续30分钟。执不执行这个规则由主持人决定。

• Code of Conduct

Our meetup group is dedicated to providing a harassment-free environment for all members, and as such, we have an official Code of Conduct which applies to all our events.

我们的交流社专心地为我们的成员建立无骚扰的环境,因此我们拥有官方的行为准则,遵守行为准则能让我们的活动更加顺利。

We are always looking to improve the group and make this beneficial for everyone so please send your ideas, comments, and suggestions to the organizers.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
