A private group Mandarin class with Terry Waltz, a Comprehensible Input-based teacher and trainer. The class includes access to class video recordings and resources on zhongwenbumafan.com. Adults (18+) only, please.
This class assumes you have solid, immediate comprehension of the material presented in Module 1 (yes-no questions, basic question words, Super 7 part 1) and moves forward to complete the Super 7 and add additional useful high-frequency vocabulary and grammar, ending in a reading of Egbert Weishenme Ku? in Chinese characters. If you are not sure that you have this background, Module 1 would probably be a more appropriate placement for you.
Terry has been teaching Mandarin through Comprehensible Input since 2000. She was not only one of the first teachers to use this brain-friendly methodology for Chinese, she has also made substantial original contributions to practice, including Directional Gestures, the Cold Character literacy method, and Tonally Orthographic Pinyin (TOP) romanization.
Beginning with no Chinese experience as a college student, Terry built her proficiency in Mandarin Chinese sufficiently to become a qualified simultaneous interpreter for US Department of State cabinet-level events and to perform highly technical translations in nuclear engineering, environmental science and medicine for hundreds of private and governmental clients.
