Now open for registration! Enrol anytime and study at a pace to suit you. 

If you have previous basic knowledge of Chinese, either gained from our Beginners Chinese short courses, or via your own studies, you can now build on that knowledge and take your learning further with our new suite of Elementary level courses.  Over 16 units, you will work with audio and interactive text-based materials and have access to a dedicated website, forum and support from one of our dedicated learning advisers. All the audio materials are accompanied by transcripts and quiz questions, glossary of key vocabulary, as well as most audio clips, are downloadable. 

After successfully completing each short course, you will receive a digital badge to showcase your learning. This can be used on social media, CVs, added to email signatures or act as a certificate. 

For further details on the new courses, please visit the Courses page.
