Casual Mandarin Talk (Lansdowne)

Every week on Wednesday 6-9pm, the co-organizers of Vancouver/Richmond events are hosting a Casual Mandarin Talk session, with the location alternating between between Richmond's Lansdowne Mall and Vancouver's Oakridge Centre every week.

The casual talk is a language and cultural 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. Whether you're a beginner or fluent speaker of Mandarin, we would like to welcome all of you to a friendly environment to learn about the language and culture through some great conversations in Chinese.

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 Lansdowne mall!

Note: Suggested theme topic sheets from previous meetups have been uploaded to the "files" section of our club page.

    My guests, ESL students Peter & Cindy, speak Mandarin, and at least one speaks Cantonese too.

      Coco and her daughter Sherry will also join us. They speak Mandarin. Coco is an ESL student, and Sherry's English is already very good.
