Are you learning Mandarin Chinese and want an opportunity to practice with others? Or maybe you learned it before and want a chance to refresh. Or perhaps you are a Mandarin speaker and would like to help people who want to improve.
Join us on Saturdays to practice simple conversations in Mandarin as well as discussing Chinese language, culture and history. This is not a strict mandarin-only conversation group. We encourage everyone to participate.
Since there is often a wide range of skills, some amount of patience is required while we help each other with vocabulary and pronunciation. Please note, this is not a class, it is a discussion group and most useful for those who are actively studying Mandarin.
BTW, there is another Portland Chinese meetup group that meets on Sunday mornings. The Sunday meetups are for speaking Chinese. The Saturday meetups are for practicing Chinese and English. You are welcome to join both.
