It's easy to understand. The sequence of the topic is good. Would be better if the dialogues can covers all the scenarios in the topic of providing directions, and time.

It was interesting and good. It would even be better if there is an opportunity to connect with other participants to practice Chinese via video conferencing. Thank you.

Excellent cours avec de bonnes vidéos, facile à suivre. Les tests étaient un peu trop faciles, mais c'est un excellent début pour ceux qui veulent commencer le mandarin.

This course is suitable for beginners who want to learn basic vocabulary and sentence structures. It is not an all-encompassing beginners course but it is a good start.
創建者 Lloyd A•
This was a very easy course and not too daunting considering the topic. I liked learning pronounciations of the words and the basic vocabulary. A great starter course.

It was very nice experience! Xiaoyu Liu was a great teacher! I recomend to add chinese transcription after every lesson and it will be best course in the internet :D

The course is great, however I think the chinese character should 've been used along with the pinyin. Just so we could check them out and compare with the pinyin.

I enjoyed the videos, quizzes, and handouts. As I was refreshing myself with the language, I found the instructor to be very knowledgeable and easy to understand.
Great course for those who want to learn chinese for basic communication. The course covers a wide range of essential and basic day-to-day conversational topics.

Only teaches pinyin but it's suitable instruction for beginners who just want to learn how to construct some very basic sentences and dialogues. All in Mandarin.

good course for traveler but there are a little of grammar part so you can speak a simple sentence but if you want to create some new sentence it's quite hard.
創建者 Ricardo d O R•
I think any course of Chinese must include characters. To teach only a too basic sentences in pinyin is not a good experience. Nonetheless, I like this course.
創建者 Sylvain C•
Interesting lessons! Quizzes could be improved with sentence translations.
Chinese characters could be shown with pinyin in order to be able to recognize them.
創建者 Ke Z Z•
I think it's a big mistake to provide the characters for everything at the very end of the couse. Either give them from the start or don't give them at all.
