This course follows our beginner’s course or assumes previous basic knowledge of the language, (for example, self introductions, talking about your family, names of foods, shopping, asking for directions, etc.). By the end of this course, you will have expanded the range of situations which you are able to handle in Mandarin, and you will have begun to learn some basic grammar points; you can expect to be understanding more of what people say, and growing in your confidence to respond appropriately.
