Beijing duck, Si Chuan spicy foods and street food

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.)

I can communicate proficiently

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

Language exchange, Language/Culture classes and/or seminars Listen and learn and maybe on occasion, present

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

People in the D.C. area that are interested in China.

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

I grew up in Jackson, Mississippi. I moved to Nanjing, China in November of 2006 for a job with a Spanish trade company. I worked there for 6 months then transferred to an corporate training company. Then I studied Chinese at Nanjing Normal Univ.


I lived in China (Nanjing & Shanghai) for the past three years. Just moving back to the States, I would like to find a group of people interested in practicing Chinese language and discussing Chinese culture.

What Shakiri M. is saying about this Meetup Group
