What are your favorite Chinese dishes and foods?

Dim Sum, fried rice, Chinese vegetables

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 can speak both Cantonese and Taishanese at a conversational level and to an extent, Mandarin too. I can also read and write to a certain extent.

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

Chinese conversational practices, outings, festive events

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.

I grew up in Oakland and learned Taishanese from my parents and grandparents. Picked up Cantonese from my friends growing up. Taken Mandarin courses in high school and college.
