We host regular events, including taster sessions, conversation practise sessions and social events. These events are free and open to students of Mandarin Quarter and general public. The purpose of the events is to provide practising opportunities for learners and to build a learners’ support community. In order to provide the best experience to every attendant, we reserve the right to reject any attendance due to misbehaviour, unauthorised commercial activities or if we consider the event is not suitable for your level. Rejecting attendance is a rare occurrence and we will always provide an explanation. If you wish to discuss this matter, you can contact the organiser or our staff anytime.

We will, to our best ability, provide a good event experience to you. However, you should be noted that these events are open to public and we will not be responsible for the behaviour of other attendants.
