Mandarin ChatRoom

Mandarin ChatRoom, Level 1-2-3 

You're picking up Chinese at work but too shy to strike up with your neighbor; you've been studying online but never tried speaking for real; you came home from Suzhou a year ago and don't speak much Mandarin any more. 

Mandarin ChatRoom is just the program for you: This is a cross between the traditional classroom and an open-floor symposium.  Stop in and meet others like yourselves. A native-speaker moderator/instructor will be there to probe and prompt, to nudge everyone along and make sure that you are getting your fair share of work out.  Work with others as you test your progress, clarify vocab and grammar issues with the instructor, find your own level and advance from there.   You learn in real-time by interacting, listening, asking questions and participating in all manner of traditional tried-and-true student activities.  Best of all, you get your session even if you happen to be the only one showing up that day. 

Schedule may be adjusted to accommodate students (Please specify restrictions if any):
  • Intermediate / Level 2- Su, 12:00-1:00P - For those with 1-2 year study (college or high school) on record.
  • Advanced / Level 3- Wed, 6:15-7:15P - For those who were once fluent but have gone rusty

Please indicate your level as you register.  Try out single sessions at different levels or commit to a season pass at discount rates.
