Mandarin Chinese is the most widely spoken first language in the world. It’s spoken by nearly a billion people throughout Taiwan, Indonesia, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, the Philippines, and of course, China. The language has a relatively uncomplicated grammar, contrary to popular belief, and offers tremendous exposure to a dynamic culture of people, economics, politics, archeology, and history that spans back over 5,000 years. VSA's introductory course in Mandarin Chinese will cover listening, speaking, reading, and writing in a fun and engaging manner.
