Our next Meetup is Sunday, January 20, at 1 PM, at my house, about 2 miles west of Tysons Corner (address and details later).

Come join us, share a brief story (perhaps in Mandarin if you can) of something you experienced in China, maybe play a game in Chinese, perhaps partake in a lesson and simply enjoy the company of other Chinese learners and speakers. Suggestions for activities are welcome.

There will be some native speakers to help, and perhaps some Chinese speakers who want to get some help in English. All levels of either language are more than welcome.

This Meetup will be a joint gathering with the Falls Church Chinese Meetup.

Isabelle Sichi, the organizer of the Falls Church group, will be inviting her group to join us.

There is something special that Sichi is doing and you should be aware of it – a Level 2 Beginning Chinese class she is teaching at NOVA in Annandale. The details are below:

Hello All, I will offer a Beginner Level 2 class in the new year at NVCC Annandale campus. It is a continuation of the Beginner Level 1 class we had this fall. The beginner 1 class was a great success. I hope to see more of you in the level 2 class. Here is more information about the level 2 class.

Beginner Conversational Chinese - Level 2

This is a continuation of the level I course, and is perfect if you have completed that course or the equivalent, or you learned the language in the past but haven’t practiced it for a while. A series of situational dialogues will be used to help you develop conversational skills. You can expect to learn the latest language usage and colloquial expressions, and at the same time, improve your listening comprehension and enhance your understanding of Chinese culture.
