Haven’t tried City Paper–will look at that more often. But, there is a Chinese school that meets every Saturday at the University of Maryland, where I work. As far as I know, though, there are only young kids there. I may look into the Fairfax county school you mentioned to see if there’s anyone there. There is a professor at the University of Maryland that speaks moth Mandarin and Taiwanese, and is a Caucasian American. So, I take it he has an interest in Taiwan. I’m thinking of touching base with him and asking a few questions. But, unless he plans on taking a sabbatical, I doubt he’s going back to Taiwan anytime soon for an extended period.
Mark, any chance of you flying back to the U.S. once a month or so for a few hours? On a more serious note, why did you move to Taiwan? Are you an expatriate, learning Chinese, teaching English…?
