1.1 Elementary Chinese I   

Elementary Chinese I is a 12-week introductory Mandarin Chinese course designed for CSU faculty/staff/family, CSU students, and community members who are interested in Chinese language but don’t have any experience with it. During the semester students will learn Pinyin (the Chinese phonetic tool), how to pronounce characters with Pinyin, and how to use 100 -150 characters/words to communicate at the sentence level. Chinese cultural insights will also be introduced such as family structure and name giving. Students who complete this course are encouraged to move up to the Elementary II level. A discount code is available for those taking multiple CI courses at the same time. CSU benefit covers the tuition for qualified faculty/staff. Email Dr. Li at
