What level of Chinese do you speak?

maybe advanced beginner

Where did you learn Chinese?

Rassias Foundation "ALPS" 10day summer immersion at Dartmouth College in NH- twice

How or why did you start learning Chinese?

i thought it was too hard to learn, but after visiting China with a phrasebook, found it isn't! My goal is to learn a couple of songs for karaoke.


I studied Mandarin informally for cultural exchange and visited China several times. I enjoyed hosting this group for 10 years, and met a bunch of great people here! Help the Organizer by giving a couple bucks- it costs to be on the Meetup website.

What reece is saying about this Meetup Group

Not a substitute for formal classes or self-study, but a great way to practice, keep the inspiration going, and meet people who are also motivated to learn Mandarin, or want a language partner. There are new people every time, fun!
