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

From the group I mainly look for study buddies both to learn and practice the language. If we happen to socialize from there on, that would be terrific.

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]

1.25 on the old scale of 0 to 5--as of 03.2011. 2.0 on the new scale of 1 to 5--as of[masked]

Can you read and/or write Vietnamese?

I can read phonetically but without comprehension. Likewise, I can write from dictation but not from thought. I can sing a soulful "Ước Gì" rendition but without affect.

What area of town would meetings be best for you?

I'm interested in learning the Vietnamese language, not so much in order to communicate fluently, but rather to understand its grammatical structure and to appreciate the idiomatic sense of the culture. As for the culture itself, I have some concerns
