London Mandarin Learners Message Board › New Meetup: Birthday meetup
Announcing a new Meetup for London Mandarin Learners!
What: Birthday meetup
When: Wednesday, November 17, 2010 7:00 PM
Where: Two Chairmen
1 Warwick House Street
London SW1Y 5AT
London Mandarin Learners was founded just over a year ago and the first meetup was on 11th November 2009. So the obvious topic this month is birthdays!
We are back in the Two Chairmen (on the first floor) as we get a reasonably large space and it's not very noisy. If you're unclear where you need to go the bar staff will be able to help.
For those who haven't attended before, we usually start with informal conversation in Chinese. We'll go round the table giving everyone a chance to speak. We might then try a couple of role playing exercises in pairs or small groups. You don't have to be fluent, the idea is just to use whatever Chinese you have learned. We usually have some patient native speakers who can help with vocabulary, pronunciation and grammar points you are unsure of.
This month's theme is birthdays. So try and come prepared to say something on the subject: Maybe when you were born and when your birthday is (you don't have to give us the real date! :-) ). Perhaps describe an ideal birthday celebration or one you've been to.
Steve and I will be putting together some content on-line shortly. As for September, we'll be using our moodle site to host the content ( http://www.londonmand... ). Moodle has a guest login if you don't want to sign up but you won't be able to try the quizes or post to the discussion board.
Finally, towards the end we'll be voting on the next topic so please have a think about a topic you'd like us to cover.
