Oh jeez, in English? Jing jiang rou si, steamed buns (baozi), dumplings, and hotpot!! And spicy shrimp with noodles (xiang la xia)
I speak much better than I read or write because I studied it formally in China only during my 2nd year there. So I'd say I am novice-intermediate level?
I like eating, drinking good tea, watching movies, and playing soccer. I like to play games too.
Actual conversational practice!
I grew up in Iowa and learned Chinese when I moved to Hebei province in 2007. I taught English there for 2 years and loved it. I definitely want to go back.
I lived in China for 2 years and loved it. I moved back to America in 2009 and have already forgotten a lot of Chinese, so I want to improve.
