Just finished my Chinese class! I took the beginning Chinese class from 北京大学 through Coursera, and now I can do basic things in Chinese, like say the days of the week or ask about favorite television shows, instead of just ordering food. I really liked how this class was organized, and not only because I got to see nice little green checkmarks whenever I passed a quiz. The lessons are short, so you’re not bombarded with new vocab, and the class constantly referred back to vocabulary from previous lessons. Students also get a couple tries at each quiz, which always reduces test stress, and it’s a Coursera on-demand class, so you can watch the lectures whenever you want, as many times as you want.
