For complete beginners. Classes will concentrate on the speaking, listening and reading skills.
University of Surrey, Stag Hill , Guildford, GU2 7XH, Surrey, United Kingdom

Speaking and understanding the spoken language are very important skills for most people. Our evening classes concentrate on building your confidence in the language and you can expect to be taught in the language you are learning.

The aim is to develop your ability to speak Chinese in a range of everyday social and practical situations, by means of discussion and role-play work. Straegies for successful communication, such as using intonation effectively, asking for clarification and getting people's attention will also be addressed.

Topics include socialising, making an appointment, eating at a restaurant, asking for directions and check-in at the hotel.

Chinese (Mandarin) Beginners classes run on Thursday evenings from 7pm - 8.30 pm between 17th October and 13th March 2013-2014. Please note that there is no half term break.

All learners are able to use the excellent self-study facilities in the new Library and Learning Centre. Open hours can be checked at

You may also be interested in attending one of our Open Evenings - These are opportunities for you to visit the School, share a glass of wine with the tutors and ask any questions you may have about the courses. The evenings are free of charge, but you do need to register with the School of English and Languages beforehand (T: 01483 682857).
