This September and October, for people who are interested in learning Mandarin Chinese, two great introductory Chinese courses are starting soon. Don’t miss it!
Amid the humidity and the political chaos, schools are starting soon. This will be an unforgettable summer in Hong Kong for all of us. So many ideas and so much frustrations constantly permeate the society. As one of the common folks, I hope things will be resolved peacefully and the deeper issues will be addressed effectively. With this hope in mind, life goes on.
The first Chinese course is Mandarin Express Intro Level A, a beginner’s Mandarin course focusing on listening and speaking. This course runs twice a week for ten weeks, and 1.5 hours per lesson. It is recommended for people who are busy at work. It is easy to fit two 90 minutes Chinese classes into their schedule.
The main objective of this Chinese course is to help non-Chinese speakers to start speaking Mandarin quickly. No prior knowledge of Chinese is required. This course does not teach how to read and write Chinese. Classes are structured around ten fundamental topics, such as self introduction, places around the town, food and etc. Students participate in stimulating and fun class activities, and have sufficient opportunities to develop their conversational abilities.
The second option if for people who have both the time and the energy, and who want to learn more in a shorter time. This is the Intensive Mandarin Program, of which the Mandarin Express Intro Level A previously mentioned is one of the core courses.
Intensive Mandarin Program is a beginner’s crash course for non-Chinese speakers to start speaking AND writing Chinese quickly. The beauty of this program is that it combines two Chinese courses into one, with one course focusing exclusively on Mandarin listening and speaking (the Mandarin Express Intro Level A course), while the other on Chinese reading and writing (the Chinese Reading and Writing 1 course). More over, each lesson includes additional targeted drills and various of activities of cultural interests.
This is a four-week program, running from Monday to Friday, 2.5 hours per day. It is highly recommended for people who want to have a quick start, and who are interested in developing four basic Chinese language skills, listening, speaking, reading and writing.
