*Due to the organizer/instructor's stay in China, Taiwan, and Michigan, Chinese Workshop is currently meeting on Skype every Tuesday at 9pm EST. And it's FREE! Check out our topics and start speaking Chinese, this Tuesday!

(For paid one-on-one Skype webcam lessons, $10 per hour, contact Kat: interactchinese via gmail)


Huanying! We are "Chinese Workshop NYC Meetup Group", a learning group that seeks better understanding of Mandarin in ways that Mandarin is learned and spoken by the native speakers.

In our Chinese Workshop we try to learn Mandarin with as much Mandarin as possible - a natural learning experience, rather than using one's first language (English) to learn the target language (Chinese), which is generally less effective. We create real-life like conversations and small scenes. Through "intentional" learning, we hope to really "own" our Mandarin expressions and retain them. Our approach is more active and interactive than text book learning, and more structured and informative than learning in a social setting. Learning Mandarin has never been so much fun!

We meet frequently at the Public Space at 590 Madison Avenue (between 56th and 57th Streets, the IBM Building). Look for a table near the center with a Meetup sign. Where else can you get 2 solid hours of first-rate lesson for only $10? All ages and levels are welcome. Join us!
