What our students say

"The Chinese 101 course structure is very helpful to me as a beginner. The instructors' focus on the fundamental of the phonetics and tones are extremely beneficial to me to get a grasp of the language. I will be moving to next level course with confidence."

Mohammad Rahman, Lecturer, Faculty of Business and Law

"The Chinese 101 course is great fun. You get to have a laugh with some new people, and the whole time you're learning something really useful. It's absolutely worthwhile and it's easy to fit in around classes. Give it a chance and you'll have a great time."
