What are your favorite Chinese dishes and foods?

Lobster cantonese-style, tofu, dim sum, Peking duck.

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.)

When I was a kid, I spoke Toysunese or Taishanhua. Now I am learning Mandarin (advanced beginner).

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

Learn about Chinese culture, meet other people interested in Chinese culture, practice Mandarin conversation.

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

This group has many members and many events to choose from.

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

I am an ABC, grew up in Brooklyn. My parents came from Taishan and I spoke that growing up. I am studying Mandarin now and hope to be fluent at some point in the future.

Introduction

I am an ABC (American Born Chinese) who would like to practice Mandarin. I am an advanced beginner. I can speak some Toysunese (Taishanhua) as that is the language I spoke at home.
