I can communicate in Mandarin well, looking to expand my vocabulary and learn how to read and write at a higher level. I am currently taking a beginner Chinese course at my college. It’s quite frustrating since they are just learning about pronunciation and a bunch of basic stuff that I already know. I tried to take Chinese II last semester, but there was a lot of pin yin rules that I didn’t know in Chinese II.
Should I just stay in Chinese 1 and wait to improve to move on to Chinese 2? Or should I seek a Chinese class outside my university that targets native speakers who are just looking to improve? Do those classes even exist?
