Thanks for this course. I like it and this language really so necessary for me and my job. My company in New Zealand - ESKA Ltd (www.eskaltd.co.nz, eskaltd.com) and we are work with aliens from China.
Awesome experience it was a comprehensive and informative course. I learnt alot. Thank you coursera for providing us such a nice and global platform to enhance skills and knowlegde by sitting at home.

I'd like to know more day-to-day information to keep a conversation, I like how it started, but some instructions were not clear. And I'd like to see the characters to start learning how some words are written.

I think the quizzes could've been higher quality. Many of the images used in the quizzes were very confusing. Also, i think more character recognition instead of focus on pin yin would've been more beneficial
I think it is better if teaching with pinyin and Chinese Character because the student can get to know more about Character and improve reading skills. But thanks for your free online course. :)

It's easy and great for people who wants to learn how to speak rather than read or write. It would've been preferable if they provided longer videos and words written in the Chinese character.

An easy course, though I disliked the lack of Chinese characters (only pinyin - the transcription) and lack of grammar rules. I recommend it only for beginners who know nothing of Chinese.

Good only for familiarity with language but some what lacks making a base for further studies. Nevertheless I really enjoyed this course and it covers basic conversations in a nice way.
創建者 Adrian C•
Focuses on pronunciation and basic pinyin. I think this might be a difficult course to start with, although the quizes themselves are very easy. Vocabulary is very lightly covered.

The course only contains a basic introduction to chineese. You need further sessions to learn a language completely and to have any significant benifit from the effort put in.

For the amount of money one is paying for this product, one would at least expect teacher-student interaction. The tests are too easy, one can't learn properly from them.

Es bastante difícil para quien no tiene ninguna base de chino, pero no esta nada mal, lo único que tienes que buscar mas herramientas para sacarle partido al curso.

You will get as much out of it as you put in, but it was a good overall introduction. I wouldn't say I can speak Chinese now, but I understand it a bit more :)

doesn't really approach Chinese for English speakers in the right way. They choose the wrong progression for us and should revise the entire intro course

Courses are great. 5 STARS!
1 major problem. I would like to go back into the courses to refresh, but not possible, therefore only 3 stars..
Really too bad

Starting from zero, it is not very simple following her. The course is full of knowledges but lack in the basics, I had to check on line for everything.

Great experience with a very great teacher, however, it would be more effective through physical classes. But anyhow I like this course so "Xiexie".
創建者 YURI D L P•
The teacher spoke very clearly, but the transcripts of each lecture should have included the Pinyin transcriptions. Without them,they were no help.
創建者 Jason T Y J•
Learning some of the radicals and simple words would make this course much more valuable. It already is very useful, why not do better? :)
創建者 Paullin B G M•
I like the way the teacher teaches but comparatively interface should be improved, which looks quite old and not clear at times.
創建者 Corinne D G•
I would give it a five-star but at the beginning it was confusing how to access certain parts, there were no instructions on ho
創建者 Lahcen c•
they said its free, but after I finish the course I need to pay for the Certificate. there is no even letter of completion .
創建者 Andres C P•
Iinteresting class, but only learned some vocabulary and some pre made sentences, but no general structure or grammar.
創建者 Carlos F T M•
Well, it is a fairly good introduction to chinese. It's short and easy. However, I expected much more from the course.
創建者 JOSE T B M•
Es bueno, quizás un poco sencillo, podría entregar más información, mostrar los caracteres en escritura tradicional.
創建者 Rylissa-Amor T•
The course was very educational and interesting but in my opinion the tutor spoke too quickly in some of the videos.
It would be even more interesting if the chinese caracters were written with the Pinyin (and not just the pinyin).
