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.
