What we're about

Are you learning Mandarin Chinese and want an opportunity to practice with others? Or perhaps you are a Mandarin speaker and would like to meet people who are interested in your culture.

Join us to practice spoken Mandarin as well as discussing Chinese language, culture and history. This is not a strict mandarin-only conversation group. But it is our hope that you make every effort so use mandarin. After an hour or so we often switch to English to give English learners a chance.

Since there is often a wide range of skills, some amount of patience is required to help each other with vocabulary and pronunciation.

Please note, this is not a class! It is a discussion group and most useful to those who are actively studying Mandarin.

讲中文 (Jiǎng Zhōngwén) on Roof Deck at Revolution Hall

Seems like a good place to enjoy a summer day. Lots of food and drink options. The elevator to the roof! This is a Mandarin practice group. That means we encourage you to speak Mandarin. We welcome native and non-native speakers alike. Everyone is encouraged to participate. We all help each other. It is fun for both learners and speakers because you can make friends and share experiences. Please order food and/or drink. And give the staff a good reason to look forward to our return.

Thursday Evening Mandarin Meetup

Market of Choice

Join us for a fun Mandarin conversation. We meet every Thursday at 7pm upstairs in the "Mezz" at Market of Choice. Everyone from beginners to native speakers are welcome. We focus on keeping the 2 hour conversation in Chinese as much possible but it's ok to interject some English as needed. It's a very supportive environment. Market of Choice offers free underground parking off 10th St. It's also easy to access via public transit.
