Pretty easy, overall.
This is a great course tailored specifically for heritage speakers of Mandarin Chinese. You will perfect your pronunciation, learn relevant vocabulary, and get a lot of experience with writing in Chinese. The professor is flexible with individual levels of language command and grades accordingly. As long as you study for tests and put a decent amount of effort into writing assignments, this course should be a breeze.
I learned how to express everything I would want to communicate about myself in Mandarin. I am now much more comfortable meeting and introducing myself to Chinese speaking persons.
