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?

I can form very simple sentences, and I can read[masked] characters.

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

I am mostly self-taught, using the Internet and books. In textbooks, I'm generally at the intermediate level, but I've had very little opportunity to converse.

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'm retired so learning Chinese is one of my hobbies. I'm also teaching myself to play the piano, and have been reviving my high school French by attending French Meetups. I love just about any kind of couple dancing. I'm a member of CFI Austin and support its goal of rational (scientific) inquiry.


I am teaching myself Mandarin, mostly with books and the Internet. What I really need is conversational practice.
