声桥中文角 (Noisebridge Chinese Corner)
To set a time each week to meet at Noisebridge and practice speaking Mandarin and to draw ideograms. (And of course to further prepare ourselves for the inevitable Chinese ascendancy.) Please list your name and what times would be good or bad for you if you're interested. Also note if you would like to involve the eating of Chinese food, possibly even cooking it ourselves.
Skory - Most any evening other than Monday and of course Tuesday. Food is good, and I'm into cooking if enough people are interested in getting together the necessary equipment and helping.
Mitch - I don't know Mandarin, but I want to learn, and having a group might just help me motivate.
- (Re:Above) If enough Mandarin beginners are interested I'd be happy to teach some basics of character writing and grammar. But please do not try to learn pronunciation from me! -skory
Molly - I speak survival Mandarin and just got back from a year living/working in China. My pronunciation is fairly natural, though my vocabulary limited. I read and write around 500 characters, but want to collect the whole set! Win big prizes! Happy Everyday!
