What are your favorite Chinese dishes and foods?

grilled squid, green vegetables, dumplings, lau bau gao,

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.)

Kind of a beginner who knows a lot of disconnected words.

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

Anything involving simple conversation, or even just listening to other people converse in Chinese.

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

I'm not sure.

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

I've been to Taiwan about five times; for work, for Dragon boat races, and once just for the fun of it and to take a class (although only five days of classes). - I've also taken classes at a community college, although - well...


I'm interested in learning and improving my Chinese; I can't say that I really speak Chinese well at all, however. I know bits and pieces, and I've taken some classes but... I think that some regular practice would help me a lot.
