A group for anyone interested in learning Mandarin Chinese or in Chinese-English language exchange!
This group grew out of a beginning Mandarin Chinese class at Leith Community Education Centre. I took it over from our founder Maureen when she stepped down and the group looked like it would disappear. I had reached level 2.1 at the Confucius Institute and had mastered nihao and zaijian, so felt well placed to take over!
We welcome people of all levels of Chinese language ability, as well as Chinese speakers who want to work on their English in a language exchange context.
Group events will be regular Chinese study groups in which we follow a transcript and a worksheet. Our main study resource at the moment is China Central Television's online video lessons.
I welcome suggestions and from time to time will post details of meetings of Chinese interest including cultural events, films, and eating out together if there's interest.
