Are you a native Chinese speaker?


What do you love most about Chinese culture?

I would have to say that in addition to the philosophy (not to mention the cuisine of course), I love the art work..chinese brush painting for example. I respect the very old civilization that China is and her contributions to the world.

Are you using your Chinese for work/school/leisure purposes today?

I feel enriched when i learn about new cultures.

How long have you lived/worked/studied in a Chinese speaking country?


How long have you studied Chinese in US (or elsewhere)?

I have only studied the philosophy .


I don't speak a word of Chinese, but I think the Asian people are the beautiful people, and what I know of the culture intrigues me. I minored in World Religions in college and estern philosphy impressed me as being so peaceful and true.
