Very helpful course with great contents and a great view of teaching. I learned a lot and am very much satisfied with this course. I will now go on with the HSK coursed offered by Peking University.
Very easy to learn the basic Chinese language. The most important and interesting about the course is that everything is illustrated with the help of pictures which makes it very easy to learn.
It was great to learn from such a talented teacher, Hope this will open doors of opportunity and will help me achieve my goals. Very High regard for my teacher Xiaoyu Liu. Thank you very much, ma'am.
Overall I think this is a good course for complete beginners of Chinese. The instructions are clear and easy to follow. However I do have doubts about completely excluding hieroglyphs from the course.
