This course is good for anyone looking to learn how to speak simple Chinese. It's very thorough without going into too much detail. The phrases you learn will be helpful if you plan to travel to a Chinese speaking country or to make conversation. Thank you for the class!

Abarca muchos aspectos cotidianos donde uno como turista podría aplicar lo aprendido, ve desde lo básico como el pinyin hasta como tener una conversación básica. Lo único que me gustaría que tuviera fuera la gramática, es decir el orden en que se forman los enunciados.

It is a good course to start learning Chinese I think, I was afraid of difficulties in pronouncing Chinese but I believe this course helped me to get used to spoken Chinese. Now I am planning to continue with Chinese learning, thanks to the course and the lecturer!

The teacher was very helpful. I wanted to learn basics quickly and I must say this course helped me. Guessing I must watch the videos again if I want to get comfortable with the tone and sentence pattern. The final notes summarized all the vocab neatly. Thank you.

Es un curso que de acuerdo al nivel, considero que se encuentra bien estructurado para que personas como yo que nunca habian tenido la oportunidad de practicar este idioma tan hermoso, estoy seguro que me va a ser de gran utilidad en mi desarrollo profesional.

Excellent course. Xiaoyu Liu was perfect for this course. Explained everything in videos. She was very helpful. After that it's all up to us as she has given us the fundamentals for learning Chinese. Thank you very much... or i should say.... Tài gǎnxièle. : )
by Sally R•
The vocabulary was adult and useful.
I liked the amount of repetition; the beginner has a chance to actually hear spoken Chinese.
I also liked the short sentences. A beginner can't be expected to learn long discourses, especially in a tonal language like Chinese.

CONGRATULATION TO OUR PROFESSOR IN CHINESE MADAM XIAOYU LIU FOR HAVING IMPARTING HER SKILLS TO US ALTHOUGH IT WAS A VERY DIFFICULT JOURNEY IN LEARNING CHINESE FOR BEGINNERS.
IT WAS SUCH A CHALLENGE IN SPEAKING CHINESE. THANK YOU FOR THE OPPORTUNITY COURSERA.
by Ammar M K•
Great course! It Gave me a good start and now I am very motivated to continue my journey in learning the Chinese language.
However you may need to study the pinyin pronunciation rules first before having this course since it doesn't explain it in great details.
It was an awesome experience! I would totally recommend anyone to join in/enrol in the course. The professor is understandable, both English and Chinese. Useful phrases and sentences, while sentences are also covered during the course, as well as the dialogue.

A course that is a must for all Chinese Language beginners. It's easy, clear and very well structured. Best thing is that it's material is free of charge available for students who are poor and can not afford to even think about the purchase courses, like me.

The teacher's methodology is very good, little by little you fall in love with the language, and there even comes a time when you can already identify words before reading the meaning. I highly recommend it, and I look forward to taking more classes with her.
