What are your favorite Chinese dishes and foods?

I have trouble with Americanized Chinese food, especially in a small town. I like all kind of food except spicy dish, I have had fabulous Chinese meals in Taiwan, China and Hong Kong. I found few pretty good Chinese restaurants in Maryland suburb.

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.)

I am a native speaker.

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

I like all the events and activities.

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

People associated with Chinese language and culture.

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

I grow up in Taiwan, I speak Chinese until I came to USA as an international student.


Hi, I am the first organizer of the Washington DC Chinese Language Meetup group. We started in 2003 with only 30 members, and now we have over 1400 members. I've met so many wonderful people here, so many good friends, You are welcome to join us.

What Elaine T. is saying about this Meetup Group

Excellent group of people.
