About This Coursebeginner

This course follows the natural process of learning a language. This is just like how we learned our mother language, which is completely different from the traditional way of language learning.

We will play a dialogue spoken by two to three native speakers. Listen as much as possible, like a little baby, immerse yourself in the conversation, pay attention to the gestures and any other kind of visual content matches the sound you hear, and try to guess the meaning.

Play the conversation as often as possible, until you are able to understand the content and even able to predict what the next word sounds like.

The video dialogue will be followed by an explanation lecture, with pinyin, and every detail from the video dialogue. You can listen, repeat, and try to imitate the pronunciation of a word using shadowing technique (repeat right after you hear a word or a sentence) you can record yourself and compare yourself with a native speaker.

After finishing this course, you will be able to communicate with native Chinese speakers with confidence, or even speak with a genuine Chinese accent.

Our Promise to You

By the end of this course, you will have the knowledge to speak conversational Chinese.

About the Instructor:

Michelle Wei

I was born and raised in China and got my degree in Chinese teaching in Shenzhen University in China. After graduation, I worked in Chinese training centers in three countries, for over 3 years, learning the techniques of how to teach Chinese and the best way of learning Chinese as a second language.

Then I went to California State University in Long Beach to pursue masters degree (MBA). While I was studying there, I made friends with a lot of students who were learning Chinese as a second language. I got my tutor job there, and did a lot of research about how to teach Chinese easily.

My conclusion was, there is always an innovative way to learn a language, which is to follow the natural process of learning a language, just like how people learned their mother language.

After utilizing the new way of Chinese teaching in my daily tutoring job, my students are a lot happier when they learn the language, and they’ve made huge progress in a short period.

    Great Beginner Course
    this is a very good course for beginning Chinese. It was easy to understand and with the repetitions, I think I actually learned something! It was presented well on Powerpoint presentations and videos. I feel like I have a solid foundation to practice on my Chinese friends.
