你好！If you’re looking to learn or practice Chinese, you’ve come to the right place! If you’re a native Mandarin speaker and would like to practice your English, we would also love to help! 如果你是汉语母语者而你想练习你的英文口语，我们想帮助你！
Please keep your English to a minimum at meetups specifically labeled “谈话”. It’s OK if your spoken Chinese is limited, but we expect you to be prepared to have a basic conversation. When learning a language, keep in mind that words don’t come easily in the middle of a conversation until you’ve used them over and over again.
English for Mandarin speakers
Since native Chinese speakers are kind enough to attend and help us with our Chinese, we want to return the favor and help them with their English. We’ll do our best to ensure that there are as many English speakers as Chinese speakers.
We go out to eat, see plays, watch movies, and do anything else our members want. Feel free to send suggestions to the organizers. Chinese isn’t required but you are welcome to use it.
We reserve the right to cancel any meetups where very few members RSVP’d.
If you RSVP to an event, you are expected to show up. If you don’t show up, you risk getting a no-show. Members who accrue 3 no-shows within a year will be suspended from the group for 3 months. Please see the attendance policy for more details.
