What we're about

Foreigners living in China often have the luxury of using English in their dealings with locals. Now it's the locals' chance to put foreigners in the hot seat! Unlike language exchange, where people take turns speaking different languages, this group's purpose is to converse in Chinese.
生活在中国的“老外”们在和中国朋友们交流时总是享受着会说“英语”的便利,但是现在轮到他们好好体会一下想要说好一门“外语”的困难、挣扎与痛苦了^O^~~我们的“中文角”活动并非传统意义上的语言交流。一般来说,语言交流是指参与者依次用不同的语言进行互动,而我们的目标则是大家只用中文进行交流。

We gather in a cafe once a week and have an ice breaker to give folks a chance to move around and meet others. We've also gathered for KTV, the outdoors, and pizza on occasion.
我们每周会有一次在咖啡馆的聚会,大家均有机会随意走动、找不同的朋友聊天。偶尔,我们也会举办诸如KTV、户外运动、聚餐等活动。

Friendship, a little fun and a richer understanding of our different cultures is what we're all about!
我们“中文角”的核心宗旨是:人生苦短,学习、交友、乐不完!

See you there!
小伙伴们到时见!

Who is winning? | 中美贸易战,谁是赢家?两败俱伤? 5/22 Topic / 话题 ------------------------------------------------------ It's rather unprecedented to see how two largest economic power players are at war now. People from all walks of life are directly or indirectly influenced by the deadlock between China and the United States. As the citizens of the world, how should we fairly balance our views? What approach should leaders take in order to maintain the order of the order? Is WWIII fast approaching? 中美贸易战再次打响。谁是赢家?还是面临两败俱伤的局面?这次战争不再仅仅是局限于两个国家的冲突,中国,美国的合作伙伴怎么处理这种尴尬的局面呢?中国不会妥协,美国更不会"闭嘴"。 第三次世界大战来临了吗?
