Although Mandarin is the world’s most widely spoken language, many people fear learning it. This introductory course will show participants how to fit together the language’s linguistic building blocks. The main focus of the course will be on conversational Mandarin. Participants will be introduced to the sounds and tones of the language, and learn simple grammatical sentence structures. The sessions will be interactive, and will include drills and role plays. By the end of the course participants will be able to converse in daily situations and make simple travel and business enquiries.

Please note that this course runs for three weeks, including an extra week after Summer School ends.

The course fee includes all course materials.
