What & How Will You Learn?

In this second half of our Beginner Course, you will make great progress.

Since you’ve learnt all the Chinese phonetics, you should be ready to learn more vocabulary, to speak more and practice more. You will continue to study the  12 Survival Contexts, plenty of speaking exercises in class, to cover scenarios such as asking for direction, shopping bargaining, making an appointment etc. This is a crucial step to enable your Beginner Fluency in Chinese.

By the end of the course, you should be ready to take HSK Level 1 test, and we can almost guarantee your successful result if you have been following our lessons closely. Your tutor will also identify your strength and weakness, to help you prepare for the test.

As usual, your teacher will send you the Lesson PPT to your email after each lesson, words and sentences you learn will be uploaded to your Phone App for your review while… in the tube or before in your lunch break?

Who can join:  Any one who has completed our Entry Beginner Course, or who have learnt some basic Mandarin for 1-6 months before. Or just simply try our Placement Test below.

Please Note: to join a course after start date is totally OK when you already have certain command of the language.
