How to say it? Introduction to Pinyin

Avoid making a mistake such as calling the current Chinese president “Eleven Jining” by taking this Pinyin crash course. Learn Hanyu Pinyin, the Mandarin phonetic spelling system, to begin your journey into the Chinese language. It is an essential foundation course that will teach you the correct way to say any Chinese word spelled out in Pinyin.

In 6 weeks, you will gain the confidence to address someone with a Chinese name and order the right foods in restaurants (did someone say Shao Bing?). Not bad for a total beginner!

If you have no prior Mandarin experience, enrollment of this class is required before you take the Beginner Mandarin Class.
