Learn Mandarin faster and have fun
This is a beginning Mandarin Chinese course intended for students with no prior knowledge of any Chinese dialect or written Chinese. Mandarin Chinese is based on the Beijing dialect and is the national standard language of the People’s Republic of China and the Republic of China (Taiwan).
This course will focus on the Chinese Pinyin romanization system: tones, rules of phonetic spelling, and pronunciation drill; Chinese characters: creation and evolution, stroke order, structure, the writing system, and calligraphic techniques. Reading and writing skills are introduced; these include basic sentence pattern analysis, and development of language skills in listening, speaking, reading, and writing. In addition, this course will cover computer skills not only with Chinese programs, but as a means for using computers as a learning technique to study Chinese.
