Level 4A 
Mid-Intermediate Mandarin I
Jan. 2024 Cohort

This 8-week course is designed for learners who have completed most of HSK 3. Our primary focus will be on language points within the lower HSK 4 level.

By this stage, you would have mastered fundamental grammar points and sentence structures. Therefore, our emphasis in this course will shift towards refining specific expressions and understanding the usage of function words.

You will be able to articulate your thoughts on a wider range of deeper and abstract topics, such as love, friendship, workplace dynamics, health, and more.

Jun Wu

Hi friends, I'm Jun. I've been teaching Chinese language and culture for over a decade, and hold a B.A. in Teaching Mandarin as a Second Language, and a M.Ed in Curriculum Design and Teaching Methodology.

As a life-long language learner myself, I know what it’s like to feel stuck and lost when learning a second language. Now after having lived and taught in three different countries to students of all levels and ages, from elementary school to university courses, I'm fascinated not only by the differences among cultures, but how much we share in common. 

Together, we will make this learning process fun while making meaningful connections along the way!
