How did you become interested in learning Chinese?

I play table tennis often and became interested in the language from my contact with many native speakers.

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

Using Chinese Pod's classification of newbie, elementary, intermediate,... I would say at the border of elementary and intermediate. My wife is a newbie.

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



My wife and I have been living in Plano for many years. I am a retired software engineer. Learning Mandarin is now one of my hobbies, although I have no natural talent for languages.
