What we're about

This is a group for people interested in Mandarin and Chinese culture. Both fluent speakers and those who are advanced learners of Mandarin are welcome to join and participate. During the pandemic we are meeting online using Zoom. [We previously met in person at the Starbucks near the Berkeley Village.]

SUSPENDED: [I (Stuart) am personally paying about $200 a year in Meetup fees for this group. Please consider donating to share this expense through Paypal via https://www.paypal.me/StuartSamuelMeetup (please select "friend" option to avoid Paypal fee subtraction). If I receive more than $200 per year, I'll "suspend" this paragraph.]
