What we're about

This is a group for two kinds of people - those who seek to learn Mandarin conversational skills and those who seek to learn and improve on English. This group is focused on facilitating the practice of the two language exchanges by having native-speakers there to model conversations in various social settings. We periodically organize fun events such as dinners or nature trips to explore different cultures and customs. Friendships and fun times are encouraged!

In Person! Grab Some Tea and Practice Mandarin and English

We're meeting in person again!!!

Come join us for casual practice of both Mandarin and English. Come see your friends and make new ones.

***If you plan to attend you MUST PURCHASE at least a drink. Tables are still set up for social distancing and the restaurant has a lower limit than normal for the number of people it can accommodate. While speaking with the owner he commented how it is awkward for all involved to have to remind our members to buy at least a drink if they are using a chair in the restaurant. If you come, buy something.

*Also, please make sure to RSVP if you plan to attend. If your plans change and you can't make it, please update your RSVP. That way I have an idea of how many tables to save. Seating is very limited. Please RSVP!

Don't worry about coming alone. There will be plenty of native speakers of both languages with whom you can practice. Very friendly people. : ) We have new people every week, and many members are completely bilingual, so you won't have any trouble meeting people and getting to practice. It's very fun!

*** Parking: There's a small parking lot behind the tea shop, but it can fill up quickly. There is also plenty of parking in the shopping center right next door. If you park in the street, make sure to check the parking signs for restrictions.

You don't have to be there right at 7:00 pm and don't have to stay until everyone leaves. We're making it easy for you to practice your Mandarin and English and socialize in person again!

See you there!
