What are your favorite Chinese dishes and foods?

I love Sichuanese food, especially fuqifeipian!

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 learned Mandarin at UM. I'd say I'm an out-of-practice intermediate.

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

Speaking/conversation opportunities, Chinese movie viewings, museum visits if there's a relevant exhibit.

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

Chinese practice with fun meet-up themes (i.e. the province traveling).

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

I grew up in the US and traveled quite a bit, so everywhere and nowhere. I learned Chinese as an adult while an undergraduate at UM.


My name is Briella and I majored in Chinese at UM. I'm starting to get a little rusty, so I'd love to be able to converse more with other Chinese speakers.
