After English, Mandarin Chinese is the most spoken language in the world, with an estimated one billion speakers. Learning the language opens up many exciting new opportunities for business, travel and cultural enrichment – the Mandarin Chinese for Beginners Diploma Course is here to get you started.

Throughout each module of the course, you will learn key vocabulary in both simplified characters and pinyin (the official romanisation system for Mandarin Chinese), explore concepts and grammatical structures, practice what you have learned, discover useful phrases or dialogue based on real-life scenarios, and take a multiple-choice assessment to further solidify learning. Furthermore, each of the course’s 10 modules is accompanied by an audio version to ensure accurate comprehension.

The Mandarin Chinese for Beginners Diploma Course teaches the fundamental concepts of pronunciation, as well as the basic grammar and vocabulary needed to participate in simple daily conversations. It introduces concepts that are unique to the Chinese language, which will then provide a framework you can use to express almost anything you want.

The course also contains relatable dialogues based on real-life scenarios that will equip you with many useful phrases to help you feel comfortable in social and professional interactions. Furthermore, the course has been designed to cover the needs of tourists, whether it is to ask for directions or to order food in a restaurant.

Who Would Benefit from This Course?

Designed for those who have had little to no interaction with Mandarin Chinese, this course will take you from absolute beginner to being comfortable reading pinyin and using a variety of sentence structures to talk about yourself, as well as to ask and answer questions.

The wide range of examples, relatable expressions and real-life dialogues included in the course will boost your confidence in having basic conversations on topics such as exchanging personal information, discussing daily arrangements and food, asking about prices, chatting about your hobbies, the weather, and more.

The content in this course is based on the first level in the Hànyǔ Shuǐpíng Kǎoshì (Chinese Proficiency Test), usually referred to as HSK, which assesses the ability of a non-native speaker to use Chinese in their daily, academic and professional life.

There are a total of six levels in HSK, with HSK Level 1 being equivalent to the A1 Level in the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.

Brilliant set of courses. I recently completed an Egyptology course with them and was so impressed I enrolled into Greek mythology diploma. (I'm doing a masters in classical studies so the Greek mythology course will help). I'd recommend them to anyone who wants to learn new things at their own pace
