Reviving Mandarin in Emperor Toastmasters

I thought myself crazy when I decided to bring back the full Mandarin meetings of Emperor Toastmasters Club. I am already President of two clubs and bringing back the Mandarin meetings is certainly like taking on the presidency of a third club.

One lesson in building vocabulary is to find someone who will communicate mostly in Chinese text. The example sentences are from actual conversations in italki.
