It is a very good one to start but most have a basic too. My experiences are that I never have the opportunity to go to the school to learn Chinese and with this I just get to correct some of my pronunciation mistakes. is ok but needs more basic.
Very interesting to learn the basis of Chinese ; very simple and clear!
It is also a good basis to prepare the HSK but in my opinion it would have been interesting to have also the chinese characters writen in order to learn both at the same time!

El curso es adecuado. Solo creo que puede mejorar con los primeros cuestionarios, los cuales son mas complejos que los últimos. Esto puede hacer que los usuarios se atemoricen y rehuyan de aprender. Por lo demás, el curso está muy interesante.

I have taken this course out of curiosity and activate my mind by learning new language. It has really help me understand and learn language easily. The only drawback I found was, tests could be more improvised. As, I found them very direct.

Amazing intro, the pronunciation guidance and vocabulary are very useful but sometimes it can be quite hard and confusing. May have missed it but the vocabulary addendum at the end could've been split by lessons, helping the process a lot.
It's quite good to know more about the different major languages in the world. Because this is just the lowest stage so it is still quite far from using Chinese like second or third language. For me, it is a quick tour guide and effective

I already attended a Chinese for Beginners course years ago. This course was excellent for brushing up words and sentence constructions. Excellent course also for completely beginners. I hope that there will be additional courses. Thanks!

This is a wonderful beginner course for Chinese. I would say it would be great for those who have no prior experience with Chinese, since it is very well made and easy to follow. It gives very well made lessons and is very informative.

The instructor was well paced, knowledgeable. Good review of common things to say if you were in China. I am missing the syntax of the language, how sentences are put together. I prefer a bit of grammar in my language learning.

Algunos subtítulos en español están mal, y no vendría mal enseñar un poco más sobre gramática, ya que el curso se centra en que memoricemos preguntas y respuestas predeterminadas. Por lo demás, está genial para el precio que tiene.
It should have Chinese Charactors with a small pinyin, but it should not only have a pinyin charactors.
Thanks for the free course and chinese language. It is very important and high benefits to continue to learn from this courses.

Really good introduction to everyday words and phrases in Pinyin. Having all the sentences etc. written out in Pinyin would have been helpful (what is written doesn't necessarily correlate to the material covered in the videos).

Me gustó por el hecho de que se ven temas de la vida cotidiana,como para un turista digamos.Y se complicó,que esté solamente en ingles.Tienen que considerar también al español,ya que es un idioma muy hablado hoy en dia.Gracias.

It was an interesting course and learned some basic Chinese. It's a pity that I couldn't really practice with other people so I hope to meet soon some Chinese to apply what I've learned. It was a great experience, Xièxiè nǐ

Fun course and a good place to start. It skips some details at times, but nothing that matters on the whole. It gives a good basic idea of how to pronounce and talk about simple, basic ideas. I liked it and learned a lot!

I think some of the quiz answers are wrong (In section about time) (but it is not a big mistake). Please check again. This course is great both for beginners and other level Chinese learners. Thank you for the course!
By Vinicius R•
Awesome course! Thanks for everything! It would however be great if you also could provide the Chinese characters for all the stuff we've learned *while* we learn it and not in the end of the course. :) Best,

Hermosas clases, incluso para quiénes no hablamos perfecto inlgés, si no hubiese sido porque las clases tenían traducciones yo no habría empezado estas clases. Espero poder seguir aprendiendo y mejorando mi chino 💞

It is amazing to learn other language with such a easy method. I like this course from best university in China. Now i can speak Chinese what i learned by this course. Thank you coursera and peaking university.
By Eike R H•
I liked the course. It was well organized and speed was okay. Altough i would have preferred a vocabulary list of the vocabulary that were introduced, as well as some information on the correct grammar in general.
By Pinyada S•
It would be better if the course provide online document for us to download because for me, I have to take note in my notebook and I feel pain in my wrist. (but if I don't take note, I can't remember the content)
By Pattaraporn D•
She teaching very well. her accent is very clear to understand, lesson is very useful to and might can use it for real. Now I know a bit of daily Chinese and I am planning to learn more about it.
Thank you. :)

Good Course for foreigners to learn mandarin but it would be more helpful if the lecturer would slow the pase just a little bit cause we are still beginners and have a hard time understanding the different tones.
By Ni P E S•
I like the course as i can learn some new Chinese words. The tutor explained thing pretty well and clear, but i think she could have been morr expressive. But it was overall a very fun course. Xie Xie, laoshi :)
