Are you a Cantonese Speaker from China or HK? We are calling out all Cantonese speakers in the Boston or surrounding areas! Share new Cantonese words, stories, and colloquial expressions with us! Whether you grew up in the US in a Cantonese household or you are a Cantonese Native from Hong Kong, we welcome you to join our rapidly expanding Chinese group. We will organize many different social events such as dim sum, hot pot, Cantonese language movies, karaoke, local hiking, bubble tea, coffee, and board game events in the boston area.
We are a brand new Meetup which started on September 21, 2017. We have a sister organization in New York called the New York Hong Kong Cantonese Community (NYHKCC) which we would love for you to join. Join our sister organization and attend events when you are visiting New York: https://www.meetup.com/The-New-York-Cantonese-Club-NYHKCC/
Our goal is to fill the void of an active Cantonese community in the Boston metropolitan area for Overseas Chinese and ABCs. We are also looking for volunteer event hosts who wish to participate or assist in expanding our community. We look forward to meeting you and creating a fun Cantonese community through this platform.
We generally have our regular meetings on Saturdays. Interspersed, we will have periodic informal coffee/tea events on Thursdays after work as well as other interesting events by our organizers. Thank you for your attention and we look forward to meeting you soon.
