TOP REVIEWS FROM MANDARIN CHINESE 1: CHINESE FOR BEGINNERS
I had a few technical problems . But in the end it seemed to work out fine once there was finally a peer for me to grade. This course will prepare you for a short trip as a tourist in China.
The materials are quite clear but on the last week's peer review, I couldn't automatically find the peers tasks to be reviewed, I had to look for their tasks' links on the discussion section
I'm really satisfied with the course. It helps you learn all the basic chinese words you need to make short conversatiosn with people.
It is a good course but the peer graded assignments need a lot of patience for people to review yours and vice versa
