What’s it all about?
Looking to learn some basic Chinese to impress your friends? Maybe to even assist you around a trip to China? There are many reasons to learn the Chinese language – whatever that reason is, this class might be right up your hutong!
There are many aspects of Chinese – characters, tones (and even hand gestures!) that appear a bit daunting but this class will be only covering very basic introduction to the language whilst keeping it fun and interactive.
What will we cover?
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.
Who will be teaching?
Alexander McLeod has taught Chinese to beginners for 9 years! He also trains teachers at the University of Melbourne and has previously studied and worked in China for 3 years.
