What we're about

This is a group for two kinds of people - those who seek to learn Chinese conversational skills and those who seek to learn and improve on English. I started this group to facilitate the two language exchanges by having native-speakers there to model the conversations. I used to be an experienced language teacher so I will definitely offer tips along the way. We will also periodically organize fun events such as dinners or nature trips to explore different cultures and customs. Friendships and fun times are encouraged!

"Joy Russell here. I attended your seminar at the Oasis Family Clinic a couple of weeks ago (fall 2017). I came up to you afterwards to talk about the scar in my left eye." "I wanted to let you know that I'm very excited about the possibility of being able to see naturally and have been working on it. When I came home that night I tested my eyes on the card you handed out. I could see the bottom line "ALL DAY LONG" 6.5" from my nose. I'm nearsighted - very much so. I've stopped wearing my glasses (except when necessary) - which is weird - been 'shifting' & 'palming' + trying to relax. I LOVE the concept of REST! I'm now able to see 'ALL DAY LONG" from about 11" out ... Pretty amazing." ---- "Thank you for last night's class. It was very interesting and I noticed that my vision was clearer on the drive home!" Terri B. ------------------------- Guests? Please have your guest(s) join the Meetup and RSVP individually. *** If you have glasses, wear them instead of contact lenses for this class. We'll have you practice some of the habits of normal vision free from any lenses. *** There will be more people attending than show up on this group calendar, so make sure to RSVP if you want to attend. Looking forward to helping you with YOUR eyesight at the class! ---------------------------------- This class will be given by Carlos Moreno of CenteredVision.com. Like many of you, he wore glasses and contact lenses for many years. By learning and using methods he'll cover in this class, he doesn't use any corrective lenses anymore at all. Want to learn how? Come to the class to find out! He's been teaching people like you to improve their eyesight and see clearly without glasses, contacts or surgery for over 22 years.

Make sure your notifications for receiving email messages from Meetup are set correctly. That way you'll get the email with the meeting ID, password and link. ***Make sure that your name on Zoom is the same as your name in the RSVP, "Going" list. If I don't recognize your name in the Zoom Waiting Room, you won't get into the Zoom Meeting. ***If you don't RSVP and get on the "Going" list, you won't get in either. If your plans change and you can't make it, please update your RSVP. There is a limit to the number of people that will be able to join on Zoom. Usually there are plenty of native speakers of both languages that you can practice with. We normally split up on the Zoom call into two breakout rooms, one for Mandarin and one for English.

Just like our Meetup at the tea house, you don't have to stay until everyone leaves either. As always, we're making it easy for you to practice your Mandarin and English. See you on Zoom! : )
