Chinese Mandarin 1 + 2 Package

By the end of this course, you will know enough to “get by” in Mandarin: you will be able to cope with the most common everyday situations by asking and answering simple questions, and you will be able to understand people when they speak to you about the situations covered. You can expect to be understanding more of what people say, and growing in your confidence to respond appropriately. This course is for complete beginners, with no previous knowledge of the language required.
