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.)

Nonexistent at this point.

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

All kinds! Well, I would like to learn and also meet new people.

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

I grew up in Western Massachusetts and I don't speak Chinese...yet!

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

A way to learn Chinese language and culture in a social environment as opposed to a classroom.

What are your favorite Chinese dishes and foods?

All kinds of dim sum, it's the best since you can try so many different tastes! I also enjoy Chinese broccoli, watercress with garlic, and snow pea leaves. Of course, you can't go wrong eating any of these with roast duck. I also enjoy congee. The classic comfort food!

Introduction

Hi, my name is William and I am very interested in learning Chinese as well as learning more about Chinese culture. I speak Spanish and some Italian and would really like to expand my knowledge of language and culture!
