A very good course to continue learning Mandarin Chinese from Course One.

The only real flaw is that there is not enough emphasis on the need to learn Mandarin Chinese characters. Although it is a choice to learn the characters, it should be more emphasised throughout the course.

Otherwise, a great course for those who want to keep on learning Mandarin Chinese from the first course in the series. I found it highly enjoyable and would recommend this course series to others who want to begin learning Mandarin Chinese.

This course's very good. But this course(maybe all courses of this university) needs peer-grade review from friends who attend in the same course.

It's need to wait for friend to peer-grade and also we need to review for 3 friends. Some of them ignore this project by sending other audio file that not related to the course or send the file of Mandarin for Beginner1.

More clarification on the sentence formation structures and tones because if it is said in a different way it implies another meaning I think this part is the most complicated but the course gives good examples for the use of different situations
