下午6点到晚上8点

We need a PERMANENT location, but for now, Mandarin speakers WITHOUT Harvard ID will need to register IN ADVANCE to get the location at HSPH and to get permission.

Those with HARVARD IDs can just show up, but it's helpful IF you tell us at some point prior to the scheduled start of the chat.

E-Mail [masked] AND [masked] to register your intent AND sign YES on this meetup.

下午6点到晚上8点3

 

The request FROM YOU for admission on Tuesday evening NEEDS to be COMPLETED by 4 pm the day before the event.  However, if it's LATE, DO put a note at the bottom saying you hope to attend.  The cafeteria is VERY VERY VERY large.

Anonymity of the Meetup interface will NOT get you into the building.  This additional measure of transparency and COMPLIANCE is required for you to make your way TO the actual event.

    We re-organized the event and made it more structured, with general conversation from 6-7 pm, talk in Mandarin at 7 pm, then Mandarin language discussion of the Mandarin-language talk from 7:30 pm, then adjournment slightly after 8 pm.

      We had five attendees in the 02115 zip code near MISSION HILL (but IN the LONGWOOD MEDICAL AREA).
      We decided that we will now have a DISCUSSION TOPIC at 7 pm and general discussion from 6-7 pm.

      The schedule will go like this:
      6:00 - 7:00 pm - General discussion from 6-7 pm. BOTH Mandarin and English (mostly Mandarin UNLESS most who are there who don't know Mandarin well)
      7:00 - 7:30 pm - FOCUSED (expert) DISCUSSION TOPIC (a presentation by a knowledgeable person) at 7 pm - IN MANDARIN (maybe some English phrases tossed in to help those who don't know Mandarin well)
      7:30 - 8:00 pm - Discussion of the presentation (in Mandarin; maybe some English phrases tossed in to help those who don't know Mandarin well)

      The TUESDAY evening event is ALWAYS in the Longwood Medical Area.
      The MONDAY evening event is ALWAYS at BCNC in Chinatown.

      If there are questions, (a) read the posting and (b) call ME on my GoogleVoice [masked]).

      We end at (around) 8 pm EST.

    About 5-6 OTHERS not on this list responded saying that they are attending.

    Others should merely CONTACT me and ask.

    I am looking for someone (or maybe 2-5 other Mandarin speakers) to help me coordinate this event, to help with the logistics, but MOST of all to ATTEND the event each week (so I won't need to be there EACH week).
