What are your favorite Chinese dishes and foods?

Where to start?! Jiaozi, lamian and about 50 more dishes I can think of.

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.)

Started studying Chinese at Renmin Daxue in 1995 and have kept it at a decent leven since. Will never be good enough, of course :-)

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

Would love to meet up for Chinese conversation, but will also be interested in cultural events and discussions on any topic Chinese.

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

No answer yet

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

Studied at Renda for two years, then a degree in Chinese studies from University of Oslo, Norway, and a master degree from University of Hong Kong. Worked at China Travel in Norway for 7 years, lived in Beijing from 08 to 11, working at the Norwegian Embassy.


Hi, I am Christine - originally from Norway, but moved to DC area last year, after three years in Beijing. Have studied and worked with China since 1995, and really miss a China network!
