About the Course

Nowadays, there is an increasing number of people who are interested in Chinese culture and language. And it is useful to know about the language when coming to China for travel or business. This is an ABC Chinese course for beginners, including introduction of phonetics and daily expressions. After taking this class, learners can have a basic understanding of Chinese Mandarin and make basic conversations of daily living such as exchanging personal information, talking about daily arrangements and food, asking about price, introducing the city and the weather, telling your hobbies etc. Selected topics and situations come from real life scenarios and can be used for everyday communications. In addition to the dialogues, the selection of reading materials and practice activities will make the content as rich and varied as possible, in order to stimulate the learners’ interests. This is an elementary course on Chinese speaking. The learners don’t need to study Chinese characters, so it is easier to follow and complete this course....

This course is excellent. It gives thorough introduction into language without going into too much unnecessary details. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to start learning Chinese from scratch.

Для начинающих курс очень неплохой, единственное, что мне не очень понравилось- это отсутствие ознакомления с иероглифами.

Very well explained. I think it will be much better if there is a revision of previous weeks teaching in current week.

I think the course needs some more grammar. Sometimes it was difficult to understand the rules you make a sentence.

I think there is too much focus on the wrong pronunciation. I only want to hear the correct chinese pronunciation.

Курс хороший. Но жалко, что совсем не говорят об иероглифах и о том, как их собственно понимать
