Introduction

I am a Portland, Oregon native out here in D.C. to study for college.

What are your favorite Chinese dishes and foods?

Hong xiao qiezi, xi hong shi chao jidan, kao di gua, and of course baozi/jaozi.

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.)

Conversational.

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

Talk and learn.

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

We'll see.

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

Grew up in the U.S. - started Chinese in college. Spent the last 11 months in Beijing. That helped.

What Allie is saying about this Meetup Group

This is surely a good and effective way to practice Chinese, meet interesting people working in D.C. and share in the love of many cultures.
