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?

Intermediate to Upper Intermediate

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

UT Austin, 1980s (two years), spent time in Beijing in 1987 and 1989

What aspects of Chinese culture interest you most?

arts, philosophy, Buddhism, Daoism

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 work in IT at UT Austin; I also work as a musician (Methodist church music director, classical guitarist, singer-songwriter)


I learned Mandarin back in the 80s at UT, but lost most of it; I'm out to regain proficiency on my own as best I can. I'm interested mostly in conversational practice and fellowship.
