EAST ASIAN ASSOCIATION

The East Asian Association, 林雪平大學東亞協會, or EAA for short, is a student association at Linköping University that was founded in 2009 by and for students interested in East Asia. We arrange events and social gatherings to promote the cultural exchange between Sweden and East Asia. We are also the section for the programme Asian Studies (Asienkunskap).

We host conversations corners every week! Come hang out and practice different languages.

  1. CC is temporarily suspended

Conversation Corner is suspended

Given that participation in the Discord-hosted Conversation Corners has been very low, the board has decided to suspend Conversation Corner for the rest of the term.

That being said, the server will still be up so those of you who are interested will still be able to hang out as you have been doing the last few weeks. The primary differences from now on will be that we will now longer send reminders about CC via Facebook or our newsletter.

You can always type “@here” followed by your message in the Discord server to message everyone who is currently logged in, if you would like to talk and there is currently no one in the voice channels.

  1. CC on Discord!

Conversation Corner (online)

Hello!

We are changing the CC times again to address some issues with the current times.

Firstly, due to how late the Thursday CC has been, many of our members in Asia have not been able to participate. Secondly, since many people have plans on the weekend, the Saturday CC can also be inconvenient for people.

Therefore, we will try to host CC the same time on both Saturdays and Sundays, so that hopefully everyone who wants to can participate during at least one of these times.

!!! NEW TIMES: !!!
Saturdays and Sundays:
13:15 UTC+2 (Sweden)
19:15 UTC+8 (China)
20:15 UTC+9 (Japan/Korea)
