I self-learned Chinese by watching a lot of shows and listening to music. So, I am pretty fluent in listening and can speak a little. But I could not read or write, so this was the perfect course for me. I enjoyed the material and the pace it was going. I've noticed that I'm beginning to recognize more Chinese characters as I sometimes need to research Chinese companies for work, and I can read them when I am watching tv shows. The only thing I wish it taught was the different sounds because it does get confusing when the words are the same characters but different sounds.

Overall, this course is VERY rigorous and comprehensive! You learn SO MANY words/characters! Not 5 stars because some of the videos drag on a little too long, this class is a little on the difficult side, and sometimes there are questions on a quiz for content that has not been taught yet. I would definitely recommend this course if you are a hard worker, have the time, and have the interest in learning the Chinese language. Also, make sure you take paper notes in order to keep track of all of the characters :)

A very interesting and useful course. I give it only 4 stars as I was not able to obtain the recommended text book, because the sellers did not deliver to my country in Europe. It is a bit difficult to follow without explanatory materials and I had to use supplemental textbooks and grammars to make sense of the exercises in the quiz tests.

Great for vocabulary building. Sometimes new vocabulary was included in the test questions, and translation wasn't given. If the test review showed pinyin and English translation of the questions I would have given 5 stars. Overall very good for elementary level learners of Chinese, thank you.

Very informative especially explanation on the ancient Chinese form, however not all are easily relatable. Certain individual character means the same as after being added to the second character eg mei (beautiful) and mei li (beautiful) - non-chinese may be puzzled by this.

La cantidad de caracteres que se deben aprender semanalmente es demasiado grande. Está muy bien explicado todo, pero en el caso de los tests, sería positivo poder contar con la traducción de las frases al inglés, para poder comprobar que hemos entendido bien su significado.

Great step-by-step introduction to Chinese Characters! Filled with historical background to help understand the underlying meaning of the characters and not just the image.
It would be nice to have a complete vocabulary for the whole class that we can download and use!

It is a good starting course if you already understand some basic Chinese and its structure, however it is still difficult to remember and recognize characters, revise, practice and more practice then it all becomes clearer

This course is good for someone who has the basic knowledge about Chinese language and wants to study more. It should be better when there are the sentences examples of using each word.

Very cool course. At my university, we didn't have such introctory notes on the names of the strokes, so it was quite helpful for the understanding of some advanced characters.

It's a great course. You will have to do a big efford to understand all but finally you will learn a lot, and you will see Chinese characters in other perspective.

Extremely useful especially in conjunction with "Chinese for Beginners" and "More Chinese for Beginners". There were just a few errors in videos and in the tests.

It is a very good course but sometimes the sound in the video is very low and it is difficult to hear things and Chinese is all about listening to the tones
By Gisa J•
The used technology is alreaady a bit dated. Sound quality can be improved. It would be good to have word lists running in a side panel for each lesson.
This course video is slower but longer then the other courses. But I like that the book came with the course. Now I have a reference to keep with me.

It was easy to learn several chinese characters. But some grammar was demanded in the exercises, although it was not taught during the course.

esta bien diseñado el curso, con tiempo, pero el idioma chino es complicado en aprender, me costo mucho llegar hasta acá, gracias

Very interesting. It's also quite helpful in making you learn characters. You need some previous knowledge of Chinese, though.
