I am about advanced beginner. I need to review a lot!
Yes; 3 times. Loved it!
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.
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.
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
