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.
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.
