Mandarin Chinese Course: Learn Through Storytelling & Reading

What you'll learn

Learn to speak Mandarin Chinese with the exciting method of TPRS (Total Proficiency through Reading and Storytelling) containing comprehensible input.  

Our Chinese Mandarin TPRS language course will bring the Chinese language and culture to you through the engaging use of interactive storytelling and reading. We have designed the language courses to be co-creative, fun, and active. You will be engaged with verbal and written stories and images. Storytelling is an exciting way to learn the Chinese language and get a feel for the most essential parts of the Chinese Language. Comprehensible input is a method used to allow students to be truly immersed in the target language, as the teacher will speak Mandarin Chinese 90% of the time in a way you can understand. It is clear, engaging, slow and with high repetition.

Learning to speak the most popular Asian language, Chinese Mandarin, is surprisingly easier than learning European languages. This Asian language has no subject or verb agreements, no plurals, no tenses, a simple numbering system and many more features that make teaching and learning Mandarin in a brief period. TPRS takes on a different approach instead of learning Mandarin from a textbook. This workshop will focus on storytelling and reading as the core way of learning Mandarin. With this method you will be using short phrases and words in no time. The tutor will create a collaborative environment which will make the workshop fun and engaging.
