TOP REVIEWS FROM CHINESE FOR BEGINNERS
It was really fun and interesting to learn Chinese here! I could understand and relate to what's taught really well. I'm so excited to use what I have learnt and learn more too! Thank you so much!
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.
Very helpful course with great contents and a great view of teaching. I learned a lot and am very much satisfied with this course. I will now go on with the HSK coursed offered by Peking University.
I enjoyed the course, the videos and quizzes were easy to understand. This was a great start to learning Mandarin Chinese. Will you offer a continuation course, besides the Chinese calligraphy? ;-)
