What you'll learn in this basic chinese mandarin class:

Maybe you don’t know anything more than “nĭ hăo” and “xièxie,” or you’ve taken a decade off. Either way, you’re ready to change that!

Beginner Mandarin Chinese 1 is perfect for you if you're completely new to the language and you want to get the basics down to start speaking conversational Chinese.


Start here if you've never studied Chinese before or if you've taken a decade off and need a refresher.


With a small group (averaging six students per class and capped at ten), you'll have an opportunity to engage in conversational Spanish with other language learners with realtime feedback from the instructor. 


Basics of reading and writing pinyin. Chinese tones and word order. Question formation. Chinese numbers, dates, and times. Measurement and particles.


By the end of our level one course, you'll know the basics of reading and writing pinyin, Chinese tones and word order, question formation, Chinese numbers, dates, and times, and measurement and particles.

Question from Anonymous
Will this class prepare me for the HSK level 1 test?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there! The course isn't designed for test preparation -- the goal is for students to be able to use Chinese in real-life situations (traveling for work or leisure, among friends and family, etc) and while the course could be supplementary, the school would recommend you to take another course specifically designed for the HSK test.

Reviewed by Mark T. on 4/8/2020
The teacher is very knowledgeable, patient and efficient. She really makes everyone feel welcome and slows down the pace when needed. She is a great teacher (laoshi) and the other students in the class are supportive of one another.
