Survival Chinese Classes
For many people, learning Chinese is a labor of love. For others it’s a necessity to make the prospect of living in China just a little easier. We have designed our survival online Chinese course to give you everything you need to be able to get on in your daily life from the moment you arrive, from taking taxis to shopping at the local market to ordering at a restaurant.
Within a few hours of beginning your online Chinese course you’ll have enough vocabulary (and confidence) to speak to the locals, which makes living in China substantially more enjoyable. In addition, where you have individual learning Chinese requests or requirements that are important to you, we will ensure you have the necessary vocabulary.
We will mainly use Pinyin to teach this course and there is a constant focus on the tones to ensure your pronunciation is clear and correct. We also use our link word method to help you quickly start accumulating a wide- ranging vocabulary.
The result of applying yourself in this way is a strong spoken language foundation, allowing you to use what you have learnt in the classroom on the streets. Your pronunciation and tones will quickly improve and in no time at all you will be able to easily communicate. If you want to learn to write Chinese online this is also possible, thanks to our interactive whiteboard technology. This leaves you well placed to develop your Chinese, both written and spoken, in a variety of ways.
Key vocabulary includes: self introduction, asking directions, exchanging money, ordering food, making appointments, making phone calls, shopping and simple bargaining exercises, expressing likes and dislikes, visiting hospitals, etc.
