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'm not fluent, but neither am I a beginner. I can speak a little, and I study almost every day. My spoken Chinese is better than my listening comprehension, and I can type characters (simplified) better than I can read them. I don't write characters

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

Any events and activities that offer opportunities to practice and continue learning to speak, understand, read and type Mandarin.

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

I grew up in Baltimore, MD. I am self-taught and consider learning Mandarin to be a lifelong process. I read and study various textbooks, listen to recordings, consult dictionaries, and chat online with overseas Chinese using simplified characters.

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

No answer yet

What are your favorite Chinese dishes and foods?

I like simple dishes prepared with fresh, natural ingredients- I prefer not to eat processed foods with artificial ingredients and additives.


I enjoy learning and practicing Mandarin.

What Jon is saying about this Meetup Group
