This introductory Chinese language course will emphasize basic language skills for everyday life in Mandarin speaking countries.

The course utilizes pinyin, the standard system of Romanized spelling for transliterating Chinese, so learners will find it easy to understand and study the language.

The course is composed of several parts: Dialogues (taught through pinyin), listening comprehension exercises (in real-world situations), Chinese characters (frequently used in daily life), Mandarin songs, and Tea Time (tips for self-study).

This course is for anyone interested in learning Mandarin Chinese, especially if you plan to work or study in Mandarin-speaking countries. The course is also a good start toward the HSK Chinese proficiency test.

We analyzed reviews for this course to surface learners' thoughts about it

very good in 7 reviews

As an American I feel rather embarrassed that so many Chinese people living here in the US speak very good English, so few of us native-born Americans even try to learn Chinese language.

I had already done others MOOCs of chinese idiom, but this one was very good.

Xiexie This is a very good course, and covers a lot.

Very good systematic presentation.

Very good pronounciation and tone sections to enable you speak correctly from the start.
