Elementary, halting Mandarin. Illiterate.
Self-taught using Pimsleur CDs. Currently at level III. Spend about an hour per day on it.
Curious, mainly. No concrete goal in mind, beyond reading the banners in restaurants. (What deliciousness am I missing?)

Mostly very nice folk. Pretty sympathetic bunch. Lots of competent Mandarin speakers ready to help a rank beginner like me, with great patience and kindness. Would like to be able to reciprocate more, but my skills are still rudimentary. Special thanks to Zhan and Willow Leaf! - Jonathan (aka Big Juju)
