How would you describe your level of Chinese? (Eg it's my native language OR I don't speak it OR I learned some dialect from my family but little Mandarin, OR I can speak a few words, simple conversations, etc.)

I can hold a conversation, read at an elementary level, and write a few hundred characters.

What kind of events and activities would you be interested in? What would you like to do at our events?

volunteer opportunities

Where did you grow up? How did you learn Chinese? Tell us your story.

Began studying in San Francisco. Managed investments in China for the past several years. Now spending more time on mastering the language.

What could this group provide for you that no other Meetup could?

30+ year interest in China, I have studied Mandarin via some college courses and through independent study. Currently working toward literacy and better listening skills.
