How did you become interested in learning Chinese?

Ex gf tried to teach me.

How would you describe your Chinese level at present? What is your goal with respect to learning Chinese?

My present level is somewhere between beginner and intermediate. :P I've taken three semesters of Chinese over the last 5 years, so I haven't had consistent practice.

Have you ever been to China (by China I also mean 'Greater China', e.g. Taiwan, Hong Kong & Macau)? If yes, which part(s)?

I lived in Beijing in fall 2004 and from August 2005 to August 2006. Inside China, I've travelled to Shanghai, Xian, Wuhan, Guilin, Yangshuo, Shijiazhuang and Ningbo. I spent two weeks in Taiwan in December 2001 in Taipei and Keelung.

What's special about you? What are your interests?

No answer yet

Introduction

I was an assistant organizer of this group about 5 years ago. Just checking in to see how things are going. I lived in Beijing in the mid 00's. I hope to one day be 50% fluent. :p
