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.)

Not sure. I can fake it for a while, but I've lost most of my former ability.

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

I'd like to get back to using the language to motivate me to get back to my old level.

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

I was in the government.

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

A chance to practice other than in Chinese restaurants.

What are your favorite Chinese dishes and foods?

All Peking dishes: beef with snow pea, mu shu roo, etc.

Introduction

I used to be fully fluent in Mandarin, knew over 2,000 characters in both old and new systems. Now I'd like to see if I can recover some of this.
