My Chinese is elementary, but I manage a few sentences now and then. Although I haven't spoken very much Mandarin, I've been around it quite a bit, and I like the language.
What interests me most is meeting people and learning from them--leaning about their lives as well as about the Chinese language and culture(s).
This group provides a comfortable, welcoming setting for meeting Chinese-speaking friends. Even when I'm in DC, my car lives in California, so it's nice for me that the group's events are usually held in places that are easy to reach.
My family moved a lot, but I grew up mostly in California. I've never lived in a place where Chinese was the main language. I took an intensive course in Mandarin many years ago.

Easy friendship and no-pressure Chinese conversation practice.
