Non-native Chinese speakers learn this language to make their academic, professional and social lives better. They can take the HSK Level 1 test to ascertain that they correctly know Chinese words and phrases. HSK is an international standardised exam for Chinese language proficiency, consisting of six levels. This course equips you with the grammar and vocabulary for passing the Level 1 test. It begins with teaching you to start a conversation using basic Chinese words such as a greeting and introducing yourself. Mandarin is the most widely used dialect of Chinese and the written form used in this course is simplified Chinese characters. People use these characters in Mainland China and Singapore. The video lessons will teach you to speak Mandarin and recognise the simplified Chinese characters. In addition, you will understand how to ask simple questions and count and identify numbers.

The next part of the course will build on this foundation by adding new words to your vocabulary. You will discuss activities, days and times in Mandarin. Chinese sentence patterns are relatively straightforward with a standard structure for using the interrogative pronouns or time adverbials, to name a few. How do you rearrange Chinese sentences? What makes Chinese structures so complicated? You will find the answers as you work through the videos and study the grammar rules and vocabulary. All the videos have two sets of conversations, a ‘listen and read’ section where you can focus on mastering the pronunciation and a ‘tone and practice’ section. Your confidence with recognising the Chinese characters will also increase with the regular recaps at the end of each section. The quick references to specific buzzwords will teach you to understand the native dialect easily and ensure you are ready to pass the Level 1 test.

Finally, the course builds your conversation essentials by broadening your knowledge to include how to ask the time, make a phone call, inquire about health or talk about an illness. You will learn to express yourself using more words and phrases. You will recall all the grammar rules and sentence structures as you work through the recap section of the course. This practical course will help those looking to study or work in China. The HSK certificate never expires so you can continue your learning by taking the higher-level certifications at a later stage. Gaining proficiency in a new language adds value to your resume and may help you explore new avenues. Chinese universities mandate higher level proficiency in the Chinese language for foreign students. Employers too prefer applicants who can speak the local language.
