What you'll learn in this chinese mandarin class:

Nǐ hǎo and welcome!

MANDARIN BEGINNER 2: If you know pin yin and have some very rudimentary vocabulary such as describing people and talking about family but still struggle to hold a conversation and you are ready to pick up at the middle of Chit Chat Chinese, this level is for you.

ABOUT OUR CLASSES: Our Mandarin group classes meet online once a week for 1.5 hours. Our approach to learning is a blend between a formal approach focused on grammar and the basic structure of the language ­and an interactive approach geared toward situations that promote verbal interaction among the students while building up vocabulary. The primary focus of our groups classes is conversation.

HOW TO JOIN A CLASS: We have a rolling admission policy which means, you will be joining one of our existing group classes that fits the level description above. PLEASE NOTE, this is not intended as a one-time class but rather the first in a series of classes. Here’s how it works:

STEP 1: Choose your preferred section and start date from the options below to pay your deposit and set up your first class.

STEP 2: You will receive a confirmation for your first lesson from ABC Languages.

STEP 3: If the class goes well, we will apply your $50 deposit toward the enrollment package of your choice and the class you attended will be considered the first one of your enrollment. If the group is not the right fit, there will be no charge for this first class and we will be happy to help you find an alternate group.

Enrollments are for consecutively scheduled classes. If you miss a class during a 4, 6 or 8-week enrollment, the class will be forfeited. Students who have purchased a 12-week enrollment will be allowed to miss any one (1) class and will receive a make-up class which will come in the form of a 13th consecutive class.

Private Lesson Cancellation Policy: If you need to cancel a scheduled class, you must do so the business day before 24 hours before the scheduled lesson, otherwise you will be charged for the class.


MAKE-UP POLICY
The enrollment in a group is for consecutively scheduled classes. However, in case students miss a class, we do send an email with the material covered, the homework assignment and handouts (if any). This way, students are able to study the material, do the homework and be prepared for the subsequent class.

In general, if students miss one class, is not something that would jeopardize the course. However, each student has a way to process new information.

Question from anthony
will we learn characters?
Answer from Georgia C. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Anthony! The group classes of this school are a blend between the formal approach - focus on the tones, the structure of the language and in case of Mandarin, pinyin and simplified characters - and the interactive approach, that promotes situations with verbal interaction, which is the focus of our classes. That said, the school do not prioritize written skills and do not practice it in class. Students can do so at home.
