Who is the course for?

This course is for Lower intermediate and above students. You will have to know the basics of Mandarin in order to not become frustrated with the Mandarin emersion technique used in this course.  If you do not know how to say something, of course you may ask the teacher, but for your own growth its beneficial to be able to work your way around a sentence to try and get your meaning across a different way. 

If you are an advanced student this course is also a great choice for you, as the course is designed to drill deep into subjects you are interested in.

Learning Path

Explore your interests and create an article in your own time. Bring the article to the first session. Explore and discuss the article with your teacher , correct mistakes, talk about meanings and structure and how best to say things more like a native. Get the grammar right and make practice. Talk about technology, politics, culture, food, travel, life, relationships, news or whatever subjects interest you. Make it as relevant and personal as possible. 


HOMEWORK: Article creation and reference finding.

These 1 hour sessions are for conversation and discussion. They can be to work on your presentation, they can be to discuss the great holiday memories you had from last year, or just to catch up on some gossip. Use this time to wind down from the week. Pick your teachers brain and have a nice conversation.

The word ‘presentation’ sounds scary but don’t think of this session that way. You are going to be presenting what you have learned. The new words in your vocabulary and telling everyone what you have been discussing with your teacher. You will be presenting to a different teacher and perhaps to other students who are on the course. The teacher will ask questions about your subject. Then other students (if present) will talk you all through their presentations. You will need to ask a few question about theirs too.
