A short term Chinese language course aimed at those who need to build on current communication skills or learn Mandarin Chinese conversation skills from scratch with an immersion course in Chinese. Short term Mandarin courses in Beijing concentrate on conversation skills: through speaking and listening, role-play, group dynamics and vocabulary games.  Focus is also on dealing with personal experiences and daily situations (see Course Methodology for further details).  Chinese characters are studied at higher levels and also the development of the four tones.  A great choice to learn the communication essentials of Chinese pinyin, listening and speaking skills.  Four interactive group classes every morning focusing on practical Chinese conversational skills which gives you the rest of the day to practice what you learnt in your own time or explore the city.
