Chinese Mandarin Lower Intermediate - Year 2 Short Courses
The Chinese Mandarin Lower Intermediate course is run by excellent and highly experienced tutors in central London. It offers continuing development for people who have done minimum 60 hours of formal learning and keen to consolidate and advance their speaking, listening, writing and reading skills in Chinese Mandarin.
This is a three-term course, based in central London, for intermediate learners running once a week. Each term has ten two-hour classes. The Chinese Mandarin course will not only help you consolidate your existing Mandarin knowledge and enable you to communicate in Chinese confidently but you will also gain better understanding of Chinese culture and way of life.
If you missed an October enrolment and you already have some knowledge of Chinese Mandarine, you can join the class in Term 2 or 3 but you will need to have your level assessed. You can either do this by contacting us on 020 7040 8268 or by checking your level using our online guidelines.

At the end of Year 2 (Lower Intermediate) students are expected to be able to understand sentences and frequently used expressions related to areas of most immediate relevance (e.g. Very basic personal and family information, shopping, local geography, employment). They are able to communicate in simple and routine tasks requiring a simple and direct exchange of information on familiar and routine matters. Students can describe in simple terms aspects of their background, immediate environment and matters in areas of immediate need.
