Total Beginner Mandarin Classes

Ni Hao!

Online and In-Person Mandarin Classes Now Available!

Our Total Beginner Mandarin classes are designed for students with little to no background in Mandarin Chinese, and our engaging, professional teachers will guide you every step of the way.

Over the course of 8 weeks, you can expect to learn basic Mandarin conversation skills, pinyin, grammar, and vocabulary, as well as get an introduction to the writing system. Using a textbook oriented toward the spoken language, students learn to speak Mandarin while engaging in lively conversations and role play.

A PDF copy of the textbook, Chit-Chat Chinese, is included in the cost of the class and will be emailed to you the day before the start date. A physical copy of the textbook may be purchased from Senseio Bookstore.
