New Meetup: Zhong Guo Jie Class #27 - Travel Survival

Announcing a new Meetup for The Triangle Area Chinese Language Meetup Group!

What: Zhong Guo Jie Class #27 - Travel Survival

When: August 15,[masked]:00 AM

The Lodge Club House
200 Brisbane Woods Way
Cary, NC 27518

While traveling non-stop this summer, I had my own share of frustration for not being able to communicate with others in Japan and soon it will happen again in Brazil (guess that will be even more difficult with my zero vocabulary in Portuguese, I will just have to take my point-and-nod strategy). With couple of Japanese words that randomly popping up in my head, knowing some basic sentences really really helped. In fact, I wish I knew all of these critical sentences we are going over this weekend in Japanese back then.

So we will call it Travel Survival (P.S. if anyone knows these terms in Portuguese, I'd really appreciate it if you could translate them for me!):
1) Learn some basic and useful sentences while traveling in China,
2) Learn (or go over) important words in Chinese to fill in the blanks in these sentences,
3) You will be given instructions to play a role in specific scenarios, if you have retained the knowledge from the previous classes, this will be a great opportunity to practice and maybe show off your vocab a bit!

Also, big thanks to Nora for having wonderful classes in the past three weeks and all the participants to keep our classes going...

Cynthia and Nora
