Dzung, feel free to come. Even if you don't get most of the conversation, I think it would still be good exposure and you can decide for yourself. We can also discuss the best approaches. There is always a solution.

Hello all,
 
I'm planning on meeting you guys at Oakton tomorrow. :) 
I've never had any kind of Chinese lesson and was just wondering if that would bother anyone. That is, should I show up only after having some amount of Chinese vocabulary down, or are you guys ok with absolute beginners who only know how to count from 1 to 3 in Chinese?
 
Thanks!
-Dzung
