Mandarin Corner (***Duolingo Event***)

Link visible for attendees

To start, we will do self-introductions in the main room. These are simple introductions that usually include your name and location.

Next, we will use breakout rooms to divide based on language level. From there, we will be reading a passage from The Chairman’s Bao. We will have breakout rooms for group reading focused at the Beginner and Intermediate levels. We will continue to have breakout rooms for participants wanting unstructured conversation.

If you are studying independently, this is a great opportunity to talk with other learners and share notes. If you're looking for a structured activity, we recommend that you attend our third Tuesday events.
