     Thanks all for coming! We had another record breaking turn out of 30+ members. I've never seen a meetup group that actually has a near 100% turnout ratio. Thanks everyone for being patient and accommodating with the seating arrangements. It was our first meeting at Oakridge, but we'll be improving on that in the future. See you all in Lansdowne next week, and back in Oakridge in 2 weeks!

  • The Vancouver Mandarin Chinese Club

     For my first experience I was given a very good impression. Everyone who participated obviously shared an interest in learning Mandarin but with different perspectives. I plan to participate in future events and have already passed on my positive experience to others who I know have an interest in learning more. 

    Jack F. on Jun 3, 2011.

  • The Vancouver Mandarin Chinese Club

     Awesome! And classes are free! Gerrie is doing a really good job 

    Kenley L. on May 17, 2011.

  • The Vancouver Mandarin Chinese Club

     If you're learning Mandarin, this is the group to be part of. It doesn't matter what level, because the participants are everyone from beginners to native speakers. Besides it's great to meet interesting people with the common interest of learning Chinese. 

    Don O. on Mar 23, 2011.

  • The Vancouver Mandarin Chinese Club

     After my very first class, it was obvious to me that the Chinese Meetup is a perfect example of what a language meetup should be. Not only did it offer the welcoming atmosphere and breezy friendliness of other such groups, but also skilfully blended warm socializing with serious learning. Gerrie, the coordinator, meticulously, yet engagingly planned and executed her program, like the dedicated professional she obviously is. Her prepared paper-based, interactively carried-out lesson plan and reading/writing/oral/aural content were well-conceived, useful to all levels, yet fun; the interaction among all--not just the one or two people one may meet at a dinner table in some meetups--was cleverly and entertainingly orchestrated and sustained by Gerrie.Reflecting and perhaps inspiring Gerrie's qualities, all the participants were, like her, very friendly, yet very diligent. Extrapolating from my Chinese Meetup experience at BCIT, I strongly recommend you have yours!
