Mandarin Beginner 1

If you have little or no previous knowledge of Mandarin, this is the right level for you. Learn phonetics and study the tonal system of Mandarin. You also learn to share information about yourself, discuss your family and ask basic questions of those around you allowing you to function in everyday settings. The use of Pin-Yin, the rendition of Chinese characters in the Latin alphabet, facilitates the learning process for students at the elementary level. Native-speaking instructors provide you with insight into the culture, traditions and etiquette of China.

This course can be applied to the UBC Award of Achievement in Chinese.
