MANDARIN

In basic level, it emphasises on listening, speaking and reading; no writing of Chinese characters in the basic level.  We use alphabetical Chinese phonetic (汉语拼音-Han Yu Pin Yin) in our lesson.  The syllabi comprise grammar, vocabulary, conversation, character writing, role-play, singing etc. to facilitate towards the language mastery with the aid of CD and VCD/ DVD. 

The course provides variety of sentence patterns that most often needed together with many vocabularies helping the students to construct complete sentences.  We draw on easy-to-understand language and simple grammar in constructing the sentence patterns that obviously different from other languages. 

The Han Yu Pin Yin is used in basic level, whereas the simplified Chinese characters together with Han Yu Pin Yin are used in higher levels with English translation.  More and more Chinese characters writing will be introduced as you advance.
