Join students and teachers to practice Chinese in a fun, informal setting! Chinese Corner is a casual discussion group open to Chinese speakers of all levels from beginning to advanced. We meet weekly to provide an opportunity for students to improve their conversational Chinese, make friends, and enjoy Chinese snacks!
(When we say all levels, we mean all levels! Don't be nervous to stop by, no matter your experience. This is a place to grow your speaking confidence and get more comfortable using the language in conversation.)
In accordance with University recommendations regarding COVID-19, Chinese Corner has gone digital!
During the Fall 2020 semester, Chinese Corner will meet virtually twice a week.
Tuesday 2pm-3pm: Conversation Hour
Wednesday 5pm-6pm: Cooking with Chinese Corner
NOTE: Chinese corner will be paused for the rest of the year but will resume at the begining of the Spring semester.
Cooking with Chinese Corner
There are many things we miss about seeing our students in person, but we especially miss sharing lots of snacks! We want to make sure we're getting good language practice as well as good food, so we organized a virtual cooking class. During the Fall 2020 semester, Cooking with Chinese Corner will take place each Wednesday from 5pm-6pm. We share simple recipes and ingredients ahead of time, and we prepare the dish together over Zoom. Use the ingredients you have on hand and join us to create tasty dishes in your own home!
You can find archived recipes from past semesters in our Recipe Archive.
