Hacking Chinese

A better way of learning Mandarin

Hacking Chinese meet-up in Beijing 2015-07-12

It’s time for the first Hacking Chinese meet-up in Beijing! I have arranged many meet-ups in Taipei since I lived there for many years, but this is the first time I arrange a meet-up in Mainland China. The meet-up will take place this Sunday in Beijing.

The main purpose of the meet-up is to meet other people who are interested not only in learning Chinese in general, but also in how to do it in a better way. The atmosphere is meant to be relaxed, informal and without a fixed agenda. We talk about whatever we want while having lunch or something to drink.

The main language will be English since I want to include people who aren’t fluent in Mandarin yet, but of course Chinese will be used too. Everyone is welcome: beginners, advanced learners, teachers and native speakers.

If you want to join, please send an e-mail to editor@hackingchinese.com. If you’re going to bring your friend, partner or whatever, please let me know that as well so we can book the appropriate number of tables.

Time: Sunday, 12-16 (ish)
Venue: TBA (central Beijing)
Registration: By e-mail before Friday

Exact location will be announced later to those that sign u p, but it will be somewhere in central Beijing, easily accessible by public transport. The meet-up itself is of course free, but the cafe or restaurant might have a minimum charge. Looking forward to meeting you all!
