In Skillshare’s unique philosophy, everyone is a teacher, and everyone is a learner. Rather than a traditional lecture format, courses are offered within a global online learning community in which learners collaborate and learn by doing. Instructors are industry leaders who share their skills with anyone who wants to learn. No credits are offered. Founded by online entrepreneurs Michael Karnjanaprakorn and Malcolm Ong, Skillshare’s online “campus” was launched in April 2011. Its catalog has grown from 15 to more than 250 online courses that cover creative arts, entrepreneurship, branding and marketing, lifestyle and technology. The School of MakeOurMark, with courses in photography, illustration and tattooing, was launched in October 2013, and the School of Design went live the following month. Among the instructors who have taught courses are Seth Godin, founder of online marketing firm Yoyodyne, who teaches a class on entrepreneurship; DJ Young Guru, who leads a course on mixing and recording; and actor, writer and director James Franco, whose course focuses on screenwriting for short films. You can begin a Skillshare collaboration by taking an introductory course in a particular area to learn, for example, the fundamentals of Photoshop and expand your knowledge with a five-part, in-depth Photoshop series.

Course Description

Actually learn how to speak and understand the most essential Chinese basics. 

Taste the wonderful, logical and no-nonsense Chinese culture. 

wtfmandarin builds the bridge between English and Chinese - the Chinglish bridge. 

wtf = watch-try-flaunt. Watch the videos. Try the audio try files. Flaunt to your Chinese communities and friends.

Our approach:

  • Structured approach, each class building on the last (easy to do as Chinese is super logical)
  • Each lesson ends with street videos of Liam and wtfmandarin students putting the taught language into real-life action here in China
  • Every lesson has downloadable essential audio try files where you will practise your new mandarin

We do not:

  • Teach through rote learning and memory tests
  • Rush through unconnected language in an unstructured way 

At the end of the course you will be able to:

  • Introduce yourself and use polite manners
  • Negotiate on prices
  • Form simp...
