I am a native Cantonese speaker from Hong Kong.
Fluent in Cantonese. Not confident enough to declare medium level in Mandarin at all. I can understand most of the Taiwanese version of Mandarin, but able to talk in simple words (not complete sentence). I do have more difficulties with the mainland China version of Mandarin. I could not even ask for direction when I was in Shanghai a few years ago. I cannot read simplify version of Chinese characters.
No, I am not taking chinese language class now.
I have moved to Irvine a few months ago. This is a very nice city and I have enjoyed so much here. I would love to meet new friends in this area. I would like to join this group to practise Mandarin speaking.
