What you'll learn in this basic chinese mandarin class:

We get it, you don’t know anything more than “nĭ hăo” and “xièxie,” or maybe you’ve taken a decade off. Either way, you’re ready for that all to change by learning Mandarin in Chinese 1. This class is perfect for you if you're completely new to the language and want to get the basics down to start speaking conversational Chinese.

Know before you go
Nothing! Because this course is designed for complete beginners, you’ll be ready to join even if you’ve never spoken a word of Chinese in your life.   

The Nitty Gritty
Basics of reading and writing pinyin. Chinese tones and word order. Question formation. Chinese numbers, dates, and times. Measurement and particles.

You’ll be able to
Introduce yourself, talk about your family & what you do in your free time, and make plans. 

Nervous? Don't be
From day one, you’ll be engaging in conversation with your instructor and your classmates. This will prepare you to feel confident and comfortable when speaking with natives.

Important:  
This class may or may not require additional fees for books/materials outside of the class price. Please email [email protected] to check.

Question from Anonymous
Will this class prepare me for the HSK level 1 test?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there! The course isn't designed for test preparation -- the goal is for students to be able to use Chinese in real-life situations (traveling for work or leisure, among friends and family, etc) and while the course could be supplementary, the school would recommend you to take another course specifically designed for the HSK test.

Reviewed by Mark T. on 4/8/2020
The teacher is very knowledgeable, patient and efficient. She really makes everyone feel welcome and slows down the pace when needed. She is a great teacher (laoshi) and the other students in the class are supportive of one another.
