Introduction to Mandarin

30th January to 6th March
A 6 week programme allowing you to master some of the very basics of the Mandarin language and explore Mandarin speaking cultures. This course will give you an insight into the Arabic language and associated cultures, and prepare you to embark on your language learning journey if you wish.

Manchester Met is proud to be home to a rich and diverse department of Languages that over the past decade, has honed an expertise in supporting students across the university to master the basics of a range of world languages.

Language lessons are very different from traditional lectures and seminars and involve lots of communicative activities. Alongside a basic competence in your chosen language, the experience will support your interpersonal skills and develop your confidence. 

To be eligible, you must commit to the entire 6-week programme.

Please note, that this activity is available by expression of interest. When you book a ‘ticket’ you will be asked to give us a very brief account of why you would like to take part. We will try to make as many places available as possible, but if it is very popular we will need to prioritise based on these expressions of interest. Please note we can only accept expressions of interest provided through this form; emails may not be considered.
