The concept of “Chinese Corner” has its roots in “English Corner”. In China, “”English Corner” is a popular activity where Chinese people meet to practice their oral English. “Chinese ​Corner” thus draws on the same idea. It is an informal get-together where students of the Chinese language may practice their oral Chinese. Typically, participants are given a topic and get the opportunity to converse with different partners, and the process may be led by a Chinese teacher or instructor.  It is thus not as structured as a language class, but is nevertheless a lot of fun and a great way to develop one’s communication skills!​​
