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.
