Develop the basic communication skills you need to get by in Mandarin. We will focus on simple conversations to increase your confidence and help put you at ease in everyday situations. It is recommended that you commit to 20 minutes per day of independent study to benefit from the course.

On this course we will work towards the following goals. Being able to:

  • Understand familiar words and very basic phrases concerning ourselves, our family and our immediate concrete surroundings when people speak slowly and clearly.
  • Ask and answer simple questions in areas of immediate need or on very familiar topics.
  • Interact in a simple way provided the other person is prepared to repeat or rephrase things slowly.
  • Understand familiar names, words and very simple sentences, for example on notices and posters or in catalogues.
  • Write a short, simple postcard, for example sending holiday greetings.
