Hi, I recently moved to Greenwich (near Creek Road). My little boy is 15 months old now and I am looking for fellow Mandarin speaking mums who would like to start a Mandarin speaking playgroup so our little ones can get more exposure in a Mandarin speaking environment. Let me know if anyone is interested in starting something. smile

I'm in the Barbican, with a 22 month old girl. I would be very interested in attending a Mandarin playgroup/lessons.

Let me know if you find anything or start one up.

I found this Chinese Playgroup, and they offer sessions in Greenwich and Liverpool St. The latter is closer to you so should work better for you and your little girl.

Classes start in September, so in the mean time, if there is more interested to this thread, we could consider setting something up. _

HI Pinky..

I stay at Greenwich (near Creek Road) too.. have a 26 mth old boy and an older schooling boy.

Am also looking for fellow mandarin speaking mum to meet up regularly on weekdays to expose my boy to more mandarin.

Maybe attending a Summer Camp in China is very useful and funny for children's mandarin study.
