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.)

Very fluent

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

sporting events, bbq, lunch\dinners, happy hour

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

Born in Taiwan, immigrated to the US when I was six. Lived in Texas for five years, then Maryland for the last 20 something years. My father does not speak English much at all, I always speak to him in Chinese so I never forgot my language.

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

Not sure, first time here

What are your favorite Chinese dishes and foods?

Stinky Tofu, Oyster and intestine vermicelli, pork chop over rice, beef noodle soup, anything authentic Chinese really.


Hi, my name is Tom, was born in Taiwan and was raised in the states. I can speak and read Mandarin fluently, but cannot write it. I look forward to meeting new friends through this meet up.
