I used to speak decent Mandarin, but I've forgotten a lot of it.
Higher-level language study
I was born and raised in a tiny town in Northern Michigan. When I went to college, I needed to study a language. My roommate was Chinese, so I decided to study Chinese. I ended up majoring in it and living in Beijing for 2.5 years.
I majored in Chinese and lived in China for two years. I currently work at a non-profit based in DC, doing nothing related to China. I'm joining because I don't want to forget my language skills.
