I lived in Taiwan for 6 months. I studied at ShiDa and am now using their textbook - Practical Audio Visual Chinese Level 2 part 2.

How did you become interested in learning Chinese?

My company sends me frequently to Taiwan, Korea, China and Japan. Many of my customers and coworkers speak Mandarin.

How would you describe your Chinese level at present? What is your goal with respect to learning Chinese?

I am a struggling intermediate student.

Have you ever been to China (by China I also mean 'Greater China', e.g. Taiwan, Hong Kong & Macau)? If yes, which part(s)?

I've been to China, Korea, Japan and Taiwan.

What Kara is saying about this Meetup Group

I'm looking forward to the next meeting. We'll have a high level agenda next time and adjust as needed.

    Hi Kara,
    It's very nice to meet you. You are such a great organizer, I had a wonderful time today. Thanks for your organizing and dedication.
    By the way, It is great season for outdoor activity. I remember that each TI ID can bring up to 6 guests to Dallas arboretum for free. How about to have a meet up over there in Dallas arboretum?

    Thank you , Kara.
    I am gald to help you with learning Japanese. Hiragana and Katanana are both made from Chinese characters.
    You can imagine あ when you write the Chinese character 安 so fast with one stroke, can't you?
    If you have a good idea to make our meet up better, let us discuss. I would like everybody feel this meeting useful and fun.

    Hello Kara. How do you enjoy learning Japanese?
    Yeaterday I looked for you in the library to ask if you needed any help. I feel sorry we left you alone.
