Course Overview

 

Online Mandarin Levels 5&6 is an Elementary Mandarin course for students who are already in the process of learning Mandarin. This is an intensive Mandarin course allowing you to take two Mandarin levels in 10 weeks and progress more quickly. Online Mandarin Levels 5&6 requires that you have previously studied Mandarin Level 4 or a course of at least 48 class hours. If you’re unsure of your level, then check our level chart.

 

Our Online Mandarin language classes take place via Zoom with a qualified, experienced teacher and fellow students. The interactive lessons emulate our face-to-face classes, and via teacher screen-sharing, students are able to experience a live classroom environment. From vocabulary activities and covering grammar points on the white board, to listening exercises, file sharing and ‘break-out rooms’ to practise speaking with classmates, students can learn without leaving the comfort of their homes. Take a look at an example of one of our online classes in this video.
