After the course, you will be able to

Because Chinese write in characters, which represent meaning but not sound, learning Pinyin is emphasised and made easy in this course. With Pinyin, you will find it easy to pronounce Chinese correctly and to teach yourself Chinese in the future.

No matter you are preparing to visit China and want to communicate in basic Chinese, or you are attracted by Chinese language and culture, you have found the right course.

If you are here for a grander purpose, such as learning more about languages and researching Chinese linguistics, this course is beneficial for you too.
