Hi, I'm Mark. I am recently returning to Taipei after almost a decade in the States. I am looking for a language exchange or language classes with someone interested in things I am interested in — film, writing, education, arts. I’ve been teaching film arts and humanities in the university in Taiwan and the States since the late nineties (in English). Once upon a time, I was nominated for a Golden Bell and Golden Horse award in Taiwan. Also at one point, several years ago, I could read and write about 200 Chinese characters (that's down to about five now).
I would like to improve my speaking/listening in Mandarin, and in exchange I can offer a great deal of English educational expertise and film/art experience (if we go the language exchange route). If we go the Mandarin-class route, I am interested in classes that assess my level, strengths and weaknesses in spoken-Chinese, perhaps some help in selecting materials and resources for self-study, and interesting conversation in film, arts, everyday life, and life in Taipei.
