What James H. Z. is saying about this Meetup Group

I was glad to meet all of you last night. I was a bit disappointed that more Chinese was not spoken. The whole point of attending for me is to exercise my very rusty shuo hua! So let's stick to that, I hope! Even if you are at an elementary level, you can make progress if only you will try! Even if restricted to ni hao and dzai jian! At least you can pronounce with proper tones LOL!
