For Anyone interested in practicing conversational Chinese:
The Chinese Students & Scholars Assoc at UCSB, in partnership with the Confucius Institute, East Asian Languages Department, and Office of International Students, hosted the first Chinese-English Language Exchange Program meet-up this Tuesday May 5, and it was a huge success! They paired up 28 groups (total 56 members) through doing research about their interests and preferences.
Check out the photos of this gathering!
CSSA hopes more American and other English-speaking students apply! They still have some Chinese students on their waitlist. As long as an American or English-speaking student applies, they can pair you up right away.
Any English-speaker, undergrad, grad student, lecturer, faculty, or resident of Santa Barbara who wishes to improve their Chinese conversation skills, should email Emily Liu (Liu Chenxi), the Vice President of Chinese Students＆Scholars Association (CSSA) :
They will try their best to pair you up with the most appropriate conversational partner.
