Continue your Mandarin Chinese language learning journey.

Set across 10 modules, each of which is accompanied by an audio version of the module to ensure accurate comprehension, the Intermediate Mandarin Chinese Diploma Course provides practise subsections after each key learning point and multiple-choice assessments to help you to consolidate your learning.

You’ll learn key vocabulary in both simplified characters and hanyu pinyin, concepts and grammatical structures, and phrases that will be useful in everyday scenarios. You’ll learn quickly and efficiently, whilst gaining the confidence to apply intermediate language concepts in your Mandarin Chinese language conversations.

Tailored to learners who have mastered the basic tones, words and phrases of Mandarin Chinese, this course will help you to learn complex sentence structures that will enable you to better express yourself. With an emphasis on practical, everyday language, this course has been specifically designed to introduce intermediate-level grammatical concepts with the use of realistic examples. In addition, the course touches on some of the nuances of Mandarin Chinese to help you gain a new perspective on the language and culture.

Building on your beginner’s level foundations (studied through our Mandarin Chinese for Beginners Diploma Course or independently), you’ll learn a diverse range of new words – preparing yourself for more interesting, meaningful conversations.

Through the use of everyday situations and by encouraging learning by forming associations, this intermediate course covers the grammar and vocabulary requirements for HSK Level 3 (which is equivalent to A2-B1 Level in the Common European Framework of Reference). By mastering the most commonly used words in the Chinese language included in this course, you’ll be able to converse fluently with Chinese speakers.

By studying this course, you will:

  • Master the vocabulary and related grammar for HSK Level 3
  • Understand and be able to apply complex sentence structures
  • Discover some of the nuances of the Mandarin Chinese language
  • Be able to state big numbers using unique Chinese numerical units
  • Be able to use the correct measure words corresponding to nouns
  • Gain a level of comprehension that enables the understanding of key points in a short paragraph

Who is this course for?

The next step for students who have completed our Mandarin Chinese for Beginners Diploma Course or gained a similar level of proficiency in the language elsewhere (approximately HSK Level 1), this course is designed to help you to progress your Mandarin Chinese language development up to an intermediate level (approximately HSK Level 3) and enable you to access advanced level study.

The Intermediate Mandarin Chinese Diploma Course will help you to feel more comfortable and confident holding meaningful conversations in Chinese and become very familiar with hanyu pinyin. You’ll learn language that is useful in everyday interactions and gain a solid understanding of grammatical points that will aid you in tackling the more complex sentence structures and nuances you’ll find at advanced levels.

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At Reed Courses, courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on Reed Courses, many of which can be completed online.

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body's logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
