My native language is English.
I was born in India. I came to Canada at the age of 5.
I would like to practice Mandarin and Spanish. I did study Mandarin on and off from 1989 to 2007. In 2007 I studied Mandarin for 3 months in Beijing, and then took lessons for 3 years after returning to Toronto. However, I haven't studied it seriously since 2010. My Spanish is quite fluent- I lived for a month in Spain, 3 months in Mexico. Since then I visited Spain a couple of times, Mexico 3 more times, and once each to Costa Rica and Puerto Rico.
My name is Dave.
It is a vey nice group. The people are nice and friendly.
