Did you know that the most widely spoken language in the world (one billion plus) is Mandarin? This number of speakers beats English by a 2 to 1 ratio. Are you interested in discovering the richness and history of the Chinese writing system through character writing and the Pinyin Romanization system that uses the English alphabet letters and tone marks? Would you like to learn how to communicate using Mandarin phrases? Learning an unfamiliar language like Chinese can be daunting, but as long as you have the curiosity and the desire Viveca can guide you through the early stages of Chinese language acquisition so learning is meaningful and pressure-free. Come join us as we have fun exploring the language and culture of China through interactive group activities. No prior knowledge or experience necessary.

If you need assistance to determine if this class is right for you, we would be happy to help.
Please attend our online Q&A on Friday April 5th or get in touch if you cannot attend.
