I love Cantonese and Sichuan dishes, especially those delicious shrimp dumplings (har gau?) and "gambian siji dou."
I can speak a few words, but have a special talent for forgetting words only a few minutes from learning them.

Native speakers who have a patient tolerance for challenged learners like me.
After growing up in the US, and living in the Virgin Islands and in Brazil, I went to China for the first time in 2000. I have returned to teach English on and off since then, and have amassed an embarrassingly small vocabulary over the years.
Hi, I am a retired university teacher who has spent the last several years (on and off) teaching English at universities in Guangzhou, Suzhou, and Nanjing, China. I was never able to achieve my desired level of Mandarin language skill, so here I am!
I look forward to attending future meetups, and will get more out of it when I have a better base in mandarin. Stay tuned.
