Friday Coffee Corner is a place where you can’t resist yourself to speak your second language.
On February 24th, the Friday Coffee Corner (FCC) opening day, with almost 50 Students plus faculty members from different Colleges and the Mandarin Training Center(MTC) show up, a lounge vibe of gathering and served with eye-catching pastry and coffee.
Surprisingly, participants practiced their language skills with English and Mandarin language exchange time while they built new friendships with people from other lands. FCC runs from 2 pm to 4 pm, but participants crave more. One student said she could skip class for this. An MTC (Mandarin Training Center) student also comments, “this is a fresh, vibrant environment for language and cultural exchange. I have so much fun meeting people from different aspects of the profession and academic specialty, and they can speak great Mandarin.
