Mandarin is one of many world languages taught at De Anza. We provide a wide range of course levels to meet the needs of our students, including introductory and/or elementary sequences for all foreign languages offered, and intermediate and advanced courses for some.
If you have studied a language at another institution, to accurately assess your past instruction (and support your success in further Mandarin language study), we require a World Languages Prerequisite Clearance to register in MAND 2.
Please follow these general rules to decide which course level is best for you.
We also offer "Mandarin Skills Certificate". See links on left menu.
