- Wang, Siran
- This is a course for beginners who desire to study Chinese language and culture. In this class, you will learn basic phrases for everyday life, pronunciation, vocabulary, and grammar, as well as general language-learning skills. The course uses video-based material and my personal experience to introduce the language in real-life settings.
- Supplies: Binder, paper, and pen/pencil for in-class notes; index cards to make vocabulary flashcards. Recommended: a dictionary with both Chinese-English and English-Chinese — please check to make sure Chinese words are listed by pinyin (in English letters) rather than by Chinese characters.
- Teacher Notes
- No Class Fee. The textbook is published in China but is available on Amazon. Because it ships from China, please allow sufficient time for it to arrive.
