This course is designed for those who have little or no prior knowledge of the Chinese language. During the course, participants will learn how to make themselves understood in Chinese, when traveling for example.
The course starts with an introduction to the Chinese language. It particularly focuses on acquiring speaking, listening and reading skills. The teacher pays considerable attention to understanding and speaking common everyday sentences. Naturally, pronunciation and the four vowel tones are an important part of the lessons, but participants also learn the principles of Chinese writing and gain an understanding of Chinese culture.
Upon completion of the course, you will have a basic knowledge of the language and be able to hold simple conversations in Chinese. The end level of this course approximately equals half of HSK 1 (75 words).
