I like the work ethic, the custums, and the cuisine. My parents are from Switzerland and I grew up in America so I would like to learn "Eastern" culture instead of just the Western culture I have always been exposed to.
I work at a biotechnology company where there are a lot of mandarin speakers so I sometimes speak very basic mandarin with my co-workers but I hope to work in China or Taiwan sometime in the near future.
I have only been on vacation to Taiwan and China for two weeks.
1 1/2 years
Ni hao, My name is Peter, I've studied Chinese (mandarin) for about a year and a half on my own and would like to experience a group learning enviroment. My hobbies include playing golf, bowling, and hiking.
