What are you looking to get out of this group? Verbal language learning/practice? Written language learning/practice? Cultural knowledge/experiences? Social interaction?

I'm looking to be around people who are interested in Vietnamese language and culture. So practicing the language and learning about Vietnamese culture is important to me.

What is your level of verbal proficiency on a scale of 1-5? [1 - No knowledge at all, 2 - Basic simple phrases, 3 - Some knowledge but struggle in conversation, 4 - Can easily hold conversation but lack some vocabulary, 5 - Completely fluent]

I'm about a 4. I can carry on a conversation but when I speak to older people who were born and raised in Vietnam, I sometimes have no clue what they're talking about. I definitely cannot handle poetry.

Can you read and/or write Vietnamese?

I can read at snail speed. Writing is even harder. If there were a Cat in the Hat equivalent in Vietnamese, that's probably where I am.

What area of town would meetings be best for you?

What activities would you most likely participate in?

Introduction

I was born in Viet Nam and came to the US when I was 5. I speak Vietnamese with my parents but want to practice and meet other people interested in the Viet culture and language. I also have a son and I'd like to expose him to the language.
