What we're about

According to Meetup.com, we are "One of the most active Meetup groups in the world"

Taiwan Travel & Language Exchange is evolving into an umbrella structure for people all over Taiwan to coordinate joint activities with and for people who want to practice or learn English, get together to socialize, go hiking with experienced volunteer leaders, or join occasional one-time activities.

While Taiwan is often described as 'a small island,' it's large enough that it is both complex and expensive for anyone to attend events everywhere. As a result, most of the Social Networking activities tend to be centered in Taipei and everyone else has been ignored.

So, no matter where in Taiwan you are located, we invite you to join this group. Existing members in your area will do their best to get you involved in local events and the group itself will give you a view of things all over Taiwan. If you should find yourself traveling or moving to another area, you will already have contacts you can connect with.

While English is the most common language among us, Mandarin Chinese is equally important and welcome.

Who should join us?

Anyone who can manage enough English or Mandarin to communicate in this setting is welcome.

Anyone who seeks opportunities to socialize with speakers of one or both of these languages will find them here.

Anyone living in Taiwan or planing to come here is also welcome.

Anyone not living or traveling to Taiwan but interested in what people are doing here is welcome but you are less likely to find much benefit.

If you use this Meetup group to distribute commercial advertising, you will be warned and may be banned without further warning!

Ask for the Meetup. After dinner, we will walk to Belly Barcade to play pool for free. We can drink and dance too. If you have a better idea we can discuss it.

English/Chinese language and cultural exchange 中英文語言文化交流

*** IMPORTANT NOTICE***
We are meeting at Mr. Brown's, in person, unless the venue goes back to no dine-in again.

**If you prefer not to meet in person, the online Discord meetup will also be available starting at 9am, since we've had quite a few people from outside of Taipei, including those in the US, that joined last year and wished to continue meeting online. This will last one hour unless people want to continue chatting past 10am online. Here's the link to join the chat room on discord (線上交流的邀請連結) --- https://discord.gg/chzrskAJY5

================================
• What we'll do:
Chinese and English language exchange. Come share your experiences in language learning, culture, travel, etc.; meet new friends; practice English/Chinese with native speakers. 中英文語言文化交流。來認識新朋友,分享生活與國內外旅遊經驗,練習說英文/中文。

• What to bring:
Yourself. Questions you'd like to ask others.

• Important to know:
As a courtesy to the cafe for providing a meeting venue, it'd be great if everyone can order a drink or snack. 基於對店家提供場地的禮貌,希望每位來參加的人都能買個飲料或點心~

Though scheduled for two hours, we don't mind if you come late or leave early. If people are free after meetup, feel free to invite each other to grab lunch nearby~
雖然有設兩小時的時間,我們不介意大家晚到早退,如果中午/下午沒事也可揪團一起出去吃午餐~
