Provinces of China - GUANGDONG

Dear Members,

Last year, Ying (Asst. Organizer), came up with the idea to talk about each province in China, and the "Provinces of China series" began. Since then we have covered Jiangsu, Sichuan, Hebei, Fujian, and Gansu.

Our focus today will be on GUANGDONG PROVINCE, located in the southern part of China. This will be 6th in our series.

This meetup is intended for Beginners, Intermediate, and Advanced Mandarin speakers who are interested in continuing their learning of China. Come out to sharpen your language skills, recall long forgotten words, and make new friends! Tables will be set up especially for Beginners, Intermediate-Advanced. We will switch conversation partners every half hour and given an opportunity to introduce yourself.

Highlight: Bring a fact or interesting story of Guangdong Province. Members who have traveled there can share their story.

***Because the Feb 9 Chinese New Year China Garden dim sum had a tremendous turnout, we collected enough money for the meetup website maintenance. Therefore, there will be NO fee. Thank you all who so generously made this happen!***

Nametag: Since no more fees are being collected, bring your own nametag. We tried this years ago and members came with various nametags with pictures and calligraphy. Be creative!

Teaism Requirement: You will be given a RED DOT. Show the RED DOT when you order food/drink so the restaurant knows you are with the group. Teaism requires a mininum of $8.00 per person. Teaism does not charge us for the Reserved Platform because of our group's excellent status. Let's keep it that way! The food is delicious!

    I wanted to come today and even printed out my family tree and a map of my parents' villages in Hoisan. However I am ill and cannot attend.

    I will brush up on my HoisanWa. Be prepared for some terrible grammar, however.

    Charleston, I will make a special Cantonese Table so we can practice, it may not be pretty on my part but I will try my best to speak my mother's dialect, from TaiShan also. I'll try to get a map of Toyshan:) TaiShan, Hoisan so we can do the "Roots" thing.

  • Susan

    My parents were from Taishan (or Toyshan or Hoisan).
