Are you a native Chinese speaker?

No, I'm American

What do you love most about Chinese culture?

I don't know yet, but I would like to find out.

Are you using your Chinese for work/school/leisure purposes today?

No, it's not good enough (yet).

How long have you lived/worked/studied in a Chinese speaking country?

I only visited China once for 2 weeks, and Taiwan (Taipei) for a day. But I continued my Chinese studies for a few years during my time living in Japan.

How long have you studied Chinese in US?

For about 3 years.

Introduction

Hello, I would really like to practice Chinese (Mandarin) conversation (it's been a while!) to get my ability back, and make some friends in the process.

What Richard is saying about this Meetup Group

It was ok, all people who attended were friendly, a little Chinese language practice going on. I think it could be more organized, try to have a greater number of native Chinese speakers for non-native speakers to practice with (I know that's not easy), try to make sure that there's a balance of English & Chinese spoken (i.e., not having members speaking English for most of the meeting). Thank you again for the opportunity to join the meeting and give my feedback.
