Do you speak chinese?

I am about advanced beginner. I need to review a lot!

Have you been to china?

Yes; 3 times. Loved it!

What is your favorite Chinese language movie or television program?

I am disappointed that the Metro channel in Maryland no longer has Mandarin shows showing characters. I used to watch various shows on that. I liked Mao's Last Dancer.

Do you prefer to meet in the evenings after work or on the weekends?

It is hard to say. I have Chinese class on Saturdays 3-5 and I have church on Sundays until about 12:30. I like to use the Metro into DC so I prefer daylight hours.

What activities are you interested in?

restaurants, museum visits, events; just getting together for beverages (I'm not a tea drinker, heretical, I know) and conversation.


I studied Mandarin years ago in college, but never really learned it. A few years ago I returned to the DC area (MD) and decided it was ridiculous that I have a degree in Asian Studies and I cannot speak Chinese, so I started studying it, now at HCS
