Casual Mandarin Talk (Oakridge)

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 for our casual talk sessions.

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 welcome all levels and we're open for feedback.

Join us for a fun learning session again in Oakridge mall!

    Thanks, John, for the vocab sheet on drinks. Now I know what a slush is in Chinese. Also good to know I'm not the only one who has not been to China. Maybe we can see if there's interest for a group to go there?
