What level of Chinese do you speak?

Elementary, halting Mandarin. Illiterate.

Where did you learn Chinese?

Self-taught using Pimsleur CDs. Currently at level III. Spend about an hour per day on it.

How or why did you start learning Chinese?

Curious, mainly. No concrete goal in mind, beyond reading the banners in restaurants. (What deliciousness am I missing?)



What jonathan is saying about this Meetup Group

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)
