What Chinese languages/dialects do you speak? How proficient are you at those langages? If you are Chinese, what level of English do you speak?

My native language in English and I am at an intermediate level in Chinese. I was fluent when I lived in China 9 years ago but have lost some ability since returning to the States.

Where did you learn Chinese? If in China, what city?

I studied Chinese for two years in California before moving to China in 1999 where I continued to study Chinese until I left in 2003. During my stay in China, I lived in Beijing and Shanghai.

What aspects of Chinese culture interest you most?

No answer yet

Tell us a little something about yourself. Perhaps your professional field or if a student, your major or other interest and hobbies you may have. Members may find they have more in common than Chinese culture!

I live in South Austin with my wife and two kids. My wife lived with me in China and speak Mandarin Chinese as well. She received her MBA from Rutgers University's program in Jiao Tong University. I received my MBA from the International Program at USC. Our two children are currently enrolled in Chinese language classes. I work in the IT field within the healthcare industry.

Introduction

My name is Mark Marostica and I have lived in Austin for 7 years. I have studied Mandarin Chinese for the past 13 years including being fortunate enough to live and work in China for 3 years.
