BCC to Present New Mandarin Chinese Workshop
Jun 4, 2012

Berkshire Community College (BCC), will offer the following new workshop this summer at its South County Center.

"Learn Mandarin Chinese" (WKS-235) teaches basic Mandarin vocabulary and sentence patterns while learning correct pronunciation distinguishing the four tones. Participants learn to write the 37 phonetic symbols and some simple characters. Language study is a window into the Chinese culture and this workshop expands on this according to interest. Students will engage with classmates in an active way and even sing a few songs in Chinese. Classes meet Mondays and Wednesdays, July 9 through August 8, from 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM. Cost for registration is $195.

For more information, or to register, call BCC's South County Center at 413-528-4521. For long distance (in Mass only), call 800-816-1233, ext. 5201 or 5202.
