This course is designed for adults who have no prior knowledge of the Chinese language. It provides students with the opportunity to work toward proficiency in both spoken and written Mandarin at a basic, everyday level. This course focuses on building a working vocabulary and developing a student’s conversational language skills of speaking and listening, while also familiarizing students with the tools to read and write the language. This course will be taught in a mix of English and Mandarin, utilizing the ‘pinyin” phonetic system as well as Chinese characters.
