What are your favorite Chinese dishes and foods?

Chicken with snow peas and water chestnuts, cashew chicken, egg rolls.

How would you describe your level of Chinese? (Eg it's my native language OR I don't speak it OR I learned some dialect from my family but little Mandarin, OR I can speak a few words, simple conversations, etc.)


What kind of events and activities would you be interested in? What would you like to do at our events?

Anything (walking, going to restaurants) that would enable me to get to practice speaking Chinese.

What could this group provide for you that no other Meetup could?

I am looking for people with the interest and patience to provide me an opportunity to practice speaking Chinese. Maybe I could help some native Chinese people with their English as well.

Where did you grow up? How did you learn Chinese? Tell us your story.

Studied Chinese at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri (but I am from Maryland) but never learned to speak it, so in 2009, after returning to Maryland in 2006, I started studying Mandarin again, first at the Graduate School, now at the Hope Chinese School.


I am currently studying Mandarin at the Hope Chinese School, having completed the first 3 years.
