It teaches strategies on how to discover topics of interest, and provides tips and resources on how to obtain authentic Chinese material. With this course, students will improve their Chinese to near-native fluency and, in the process, gain profound knowledge of a wide range of subject matter such as science, technology, history, politics, and art.

 

” You guys have been insanely helpful. I’m going thru path to fluency right now and it has really rekindled my interest in learning chinese after slowing down at HSK5. I’ve always sort of known that achieving fluency was going to be a lifelong endeavor, but thanks to all of your recent advice I won’t be restricted to just textbooks and grammar points.”
