chinese language in 3 reviews

One may add that since Chinese is a tonal language and English language as practiced today, does not have ways and means to capture nuances of the Chinese language, it takes some time and effort to get understanding of it.

This course is very effectively designed to instruct beginners on the basic vocabulary, grammar and oral comprehension of Chinese language in context.

Course lessons are presented interestingly and in a helpful way to improve my Chinese language skills.
