Boise Conversation Corner

The University of Idaho Confucius Institute's Boise Chinese Conversation Group is a casual event for Mandarin Chinese speakers and learners to gather together since September 2016. It's a place to meet new friends, practice your Mandarin pronunciation, visit with people from diverse cultural backgrounds, and have fun. Everyone is welcome to join our meetings, from novices to native Chinese speakers to friends from every level in between. This is a friendly and supportive environment where Chinese language students can apply what they have studied to real world conversations.

Chinese Conversation Corner will be held every other Saturday morning from 10-11:30 a.m. at Alia’s Coffee House at 908 W. Main St. Boise, ID, 83702. Meeting times and locations are subject to change, please contact or call 208-364-4054 for more information about these events.
