What are your favorite Chinese dishes and foods?

Anything ranging from 火锅 to 台湾小吃。

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.)

Professional fluency - I'm not a native speaker, but very comfortable discussing a wide range of topics.

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

I'm really open to any events, so long as they involve Chinese and the opportunity to make new connections and friends.

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

The opportunity to remain engaged with the Chinese culture from DC as well as the opportunity to keep practicing (abs learning) Chinese.

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

I grew up in the US, but started to learn Chinese through immersion during a gap year in Taiwan. I then went on to do the Chinese Language Flagship Program at my undergraduate institution, and haven't looked back since!

Introduction

大家好! I'm new to the DC area and keen to keep my Chinese language skills in good shape.
