It’s time for a Hacking Chinese meet-up in Beijing! It’s been two years since the previous meet-up and I’m looking forward to meeting people interested in learning or teaching Chinese based in or around Beijing. The meet-up will be held somewhere in the city centre, probably close to 北京站, at 2 PM on July 4th (that’s next Tuesday).
The meet-up is meant to be a relaxed occasion where a common interest brings people together to exchange ideas. The event itself is of course free of charge, but since we will be in a café, you will need to at least buy something to drink for 20-30 RMB. I will announce the exact location later to those that have signed-up.
The main language will be English since I want to include people who aren’t fluent in Mandarin yet, but of course Chinese can be used too. Everyone is welcome: beginners, advanced learners, teachers and native speakers.
You sign up by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please sign up before the end of the week (before the end of Sunday, July 2nd) so I can make sure there’s room for everyone. Please let me know who you are, if you’re bringing someone else (so I can keep a rough headcount) and if you have something in particular you want to discuss during the meet-up.
I’m sorry if this late announcement means that some people can’t attend, but my schedule hasn’t been clear enough to announce a date until now, so this was the only way. I hope some of you can still make it and I’m looking forward to seeing you next week!
