Course Description

The course is suitable for real beginner learners of Chinese with virtually no prior knowledge of the language.

As the course book for this stage, we currently use the first half of Discover China Book I (Macmillan).

During the course you’ll learn how to talk about basic personal details, nationalities and occupation. You’ll also learn how to talk about daily routines.

At the end of the course, you’ll have some elementary appreciation of Chinese grammar and structures and you’ll be able to give basic information about yourself, your family members and your friends and describe how they look like.

You will also be able to communicate at a basic level when meeting a Chinese speaker for the first time.

A registration session will take place if you'd like to ask questions before you enrol.

Any questions about the courses or the registration session?
