Mandarin: Conversant

COURSE

Course description

This course is for those who have already completed Mandarin: Beginner (or the equivalent). Here, you’ll take your basic knowledge of Chinese characters and developed tone recognition and expand your ability to build longer sentences, while continuing to learn about the culture through Chinese songs, poems, movies, and other art forms.

Learning objectives

By the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • Distinguish and reproduce the four tones of the language with greater ease;
  • Use Pinyin (an invaluable Mandarin pronunciation guide, which uses the English alphabet) more effectively;
  • Understand and use the new vocabulary and grammar that will be taught;
  • Ask and answer more complex questions;
  • Recognize and reproduce simple characters;
  • Form longer sentences that could be used in email or on WeChat;
  • Be more familiar with Chinese culture, by means of Chinese social media, songs, videos, etc.

We encourage students to participate in our language courses more than one time in order to truly learn the material taught over 10 lessons. It also gives you additional exposure to varying activities within each topic.

  • September (registration opens in June)
  • January (registration opens in November)
  • April (registration opens in November)

Textbooks:
