Give us a little of your background... What brings you here?

I love the German language, and this Meetup group is the perfect opportunity for me to speak the language and meet new people too!

How did you learn German? What level are you?

I have been speaking German for years. I studied it in high school, college and grad school. I would say I'm ALMOST near-native, but ANYONE can use the practice and improvement.

Favorite Bier? Favorite coffee?

I unfortunately don't drink beer because I am gluten-intolerant. When I was in Germany, all I drank was any kind of helles Weizen. But now, as far as alcohol goes, I only drink either hard cider or white wine. Deal with it. :) When I'm at home, my coffee is Folgers. When I'm out, it's Starbucks.

Lived/Worked/Studied abroad? Are you abroad now?

I lived in Stuttgart for a year while studying at the University of Stuttgart. I also lived in Chiba, Japan for a year while teaching English there.

What's your favorite foreign word (and why)?

I have many favorite foreign words, but one of them is definitely 'chiacchierare'. It's the Italian verb 'to chat, chatter or gossip'. Now I don't gossip, but I definitely chat, and I like how this word sounds in Italian.
