Practise Mandarin / English in a fun setting

Welcome to our Mandarin / English language exchange meetup supporting Mandarin learners to improve their Mandarin conversational skills and native Mandarin speakers to improve their English! Make new friends and practise Mandarin/English in a relaxed social setting. Students of all levels welcome.

During the event, 60 minutes will be dedicated to Mandarin-speaking only, and 60 minutes to English-speaking only.

Please buy a drink and/or food at the St James Hotel during the meetup as a courtesy to the venue. Thanks.

• Buy a drink / some food and mingle (15 min): chat to anyone you like in either English or Mandarin.

• Take a seat at a table according to your Mandarin level: beginner (learning for 1 year or less), intermediate (learning for more than a year) or advanced (learning for more than 3 years). Native Mandarin speakers can sit at any table.

• Mandarin conversations / English conversations: chat in Mandarin for 30 minutes and then English for 30 minutes with the people on your table. Then native speakers rotate so that you can talk to different people.
