Beginner Mandarin 3 – More than surviving!

February 18 @ 6:45 pm - April 28 @ 8:15 pm

Course Overview

You’ll expand your Mandarin to more challenging daily life topics, with richer details and increased fluency.

  • Enjoy travelling to China with more independence – learn how to check in to a hotel, make specific requests, describe missing items and explain simple situations
  • Start to expand beyond simple polite ‘information sharing’ to ‘chit chat’ conversations – expressing likes and dislikes, express conditions, opinion, reasoning, and making phone calls to family and business colleagues on basic routine matters
  • Continue to primarily focus on speaking, listening and pronunciation
  • Develop confidence to construct sentences with increased accuracy and fluency
  • Keep learning ‘building blocks’ of Chinese characters, including a small number of basic characters used in daily life in China
