Launched on February 10, 2012, “Free Flow Fridays” is a new free service offered by easyMandarin Chinese School to students in order to give every student an opportunity to practice using Mandarin in a free flowing conversational format. No English is allowed to be spoken by students during the sessions.
Students join Free Flow Friday at easyMandarin’s campus located in the center of Shanghai right behind Jingan Temple (metro Line #2, Line #7, Exit #2) every Friday from 3pm to 4pm to have fun and use the language that they are learning in class. An easyMandarin language instructor guides Free Flow Friday and corrects students if needed.
Henk Nieuwenhuys, an easyMandarin student from the Netherlands, came to the first three Free Flow Friday sessions and said, “It was great to practice Chinese in a new environment, not using the book and just having a free flowing conversation. The other students spoke Chinese slowly so I could really understand what everyone was saying. It is great! “
