Casual Talk in Mandarin (Lansdowne)

Dear All,

The hosts of Richmond Mandarin Meetup are happy to announce that we will alternate between Richmond's Lansdowne Mall and Vancouver's Oakridge Centre weekly to make it more convenient for some members.

The casual talk is more of a language exchange. Members are encouraged to learn new words/phrases, ask questions and share ideas. Native Chinese speakers will help us with pinyin, sentence structure and using proper choice of words.

Chinese ESL students are also encouraged to participate. This way both native English and Chinese speakers will be able to learn from each other.

If you have any suggestions or advice, please feel free to contact any of us or just post a comment here. We're open for feedback and we welcome all levels.

Join us for a fun learning session again in Lansdowne mall.

    I look forward to joining in on these conversational sessions since I believe this should be a great way to improve my ability to speak Mandarin. I've taken several courses in the past at the beginners level but because for various reasons I have not kept up with continuing the learning process. But now that I have more time I would like to carry on again. I would first like to brush up on the material that I have already covered before joining in with these conversation groups. This should take me a month or so.
