  • Time:  5:30-7:30pm
  • Term:   8 weeks

Our twice a week program in Mandarin Chinese offers a rigorous integrated approach to listening, speaking, reading and writing. In addition to basic conversation Mandarin and an introduction to Chinese characters, students will grapple with the standard Mandarin pronunciation system and attain a thorough foundation in transcribing sounds into 'hanyu pinyin' romanization thus becoming equipped for independent study. Completing the textbook Integrated Chinese Level 1/Part 1, students should be able to engage in small talk at a vocabulary level of 150-200 characters and have a basic understanding of written Chinese. From there, you may proceed at the same brisk pace to our Basic Course II starting at Part II of the Integrated Chinese textbook series. 

Minimum 3 students to run full term; 2 student group may run 7 weeks.  Textbook (est. $45) not included.
