We will be getting straight into some of the basics – like how to introduce yourself and early conversation. Then we will get onto learning a few handy phrases for shopping and the like. And finally we will finish with a couple of tricks about pronunciation!

You don’t need any prior knowledge of Chinese to attend the class.
