Ni Hao everyone!. Its finally here! YES we are starting our new Mandarin and Mandarin Reading and Writing class. This classes will run for one hour each. We will teach Mandarin speaking in the first part of the class and Chinese Reading and Writing in the second part of the class. The writing class will teach how to read and write the characters learned in the speaking class. Because we feel that one doesn't really learn a language without its formal script, we will focus our attention in both, conversational skills as well as reading and writing.
- Any student can participate in both classes or just the first or second part of the class, depending on what their interests are.
-This is a formal class and will be taught from a college textbook. We will use the book "Integrated Chinese level 1" Simplified characters, 3rd edition by Yuehua Liu and Tao-Chung Yao (both the textbook and the workbook). The books are a little pricey but they are worth the money. The books are REQUIRED for this class.
- A donation of 5 to 10 dollars per class is appreciated to help cover the costs of meetup.com.
- These are formal Chinese classes dictated by a native speaker, therefore we ask everyone to be serious about their studies and to complete homework and assignments given by the instructor. Thank you, and lets have fun studying the amazing and very interesting Chinese language and culture. See you all there! =)
