This is a group for Mandarin conversation with no English permitted. Single word or sentence translations are okay. It’s for native speakers or non-native speakers who can carry on a conversation in Mandarin.
Anyone at least advanced beginner or intermediate and above are welcome to attend, just so long as you can keep going without switching to English. This group is particularly intended for foreigners who used to live in China or intend to live in China in the future, or perhaps those with Chinese relatives (like me) or for native speakers who want to chat with each other and meet foreigners who are working to improve their Chinese.
Events will mainly be gatherings at cafes or other public spaces to informally chat in only Chinese for a few hours. We may also have events that could include hiking, outdoor activities or cultural activities where we will continue to only speak Chinese without any English.
