Let's meet and practice Mandarin and share our interest in the culture! All skill levels welcome, beginners and native speakers.
I will be hosting casual meetups to help practice Mandarin, try new foods, or just meet people that are also interested in Chinese language/culture.
We now also have a new co-organizer who will be hosting free Mandarin lessons.
Don't be intimidated if you don't know any Mandarin, the best way to learn is to just get out there and try. We also still speak a lot of English. Also if you are a native Mandarin speaker, this is also a fun way to meet others or if you need to, practice your English.
I started this meetup and had our first event on June 18, 2018. It will be coming up on 4 years of this group. Some members may not know but I have to pay $98 every 6 months to keep this group open. This has accounted for almost $800 in Meetup fees over these years.
I have had some help just recently with my new co-organizers, but I would like to ask if members could help contribute to keep this group running if you enjoy it.
If you are able to and enjoy this group, please venmo CleMike or please message me for my email to send paypal. I will record all transactions on the groups money page which you are able to view. Please feel free to talk to me if you have any questions.
(All contributions welcome but $10-$40 is a suggestion)
