Mark J



Arlington, VA

Organizer since:

November 5, 2015

How would you describe your current Mandarin ability?

Advanced level in conversation, intermediate level in reading, low level in writing.

Do you have a particular goal for improving your Mandarin (or English?) ability? If you have a specific goal, do you care to say what it is?

I want to speed up and expand my range of reading ability.

Have you lived in China?

Briefly. I have visited many times and did two two-month stints in 2013.

How can we help you practice? (classes, happy hours, tutor or language exchange referrals?)

I am the organizer of this group, and hope to meet the expectations of other members. I personally get the greatest benefit from our ongoing classes, but I also enjoy the social meetups that we do. Please make suggestions!


Hello, I am a long time student of China and Chinese language, but need lots of help with Mandarin. My professional skills are investment and finance and hobbies are Taiji and running. I study with our meetup classes. 大家好。 希望早日跟你们见面。 欢迎来上课。
