Sunday Night Chinese Mandarin Learning/Conversation

Online event

Our goal is to build China-USA cross-cultural connections through Chinese Mandarin Learning/Conversation and cultural exchange.

Our hope is to build up our Mandarin and English skills, get to know the true China and the true America, and make new friends as well!

All levels of English and Chinese are welcome.

Monthly Polyglot Meeting

Location visible to members

Welcome to our monthly (first Sunday) meeting!

Who should come? Anyone looking to practice a language or multiple languages, no matter your proficiency. English as second language (ESL) learners welcome. Don't be shy if you're a "poly-not" learning his or her first language outside your native tongue, as all levels are welcome! You're guaranteed to learn a thing or twenty, and have fun while you're at it. Feel free to invite guests, including international visitors.

How does it work?

- Newcomers will introduce themselves (usually in English) and tell the group what languages they speak or are learning.

- After that, I'll assign everyone to breakout rooms, with a different language spoken in each room. Please you change your name in Zoom to reflect your choice(s) of breakout room; for example, "Miguel - German" or "Beth - ES, IT, JA." Doing this makes the assignments go much smoother and faster!

- If/when you want to switch rooms, just click on "leave breakout room" and return to the main room (may be on the lower right part of the screen depending on your computer browser/ phone). From the main room, I can reassign you to a different language room and you click on "join breakout room" somewhere on your screen.

- When the meeting "ends" after two hours, I may leave but I typically leave the meeting on for those who want to chat further.

YOUR SUPPORT IS ESSENTIAL: I pay $200 annually for this Meetup account, and invest many hours of my time, because this is an absolutely amazing group, filled with fun, fascinating people. Your generosity keeps this group going - $3-5 suggested - Venmo: @Jennifer-Aron or PayPal: [masked]. I appreciate you!

Any questions? Feel free to message me. Keep in mind that after the meeting has started, it is often difficult for me to respond to messages.

See you soon!
