Mandarin.Code(Cayman) is a free learning and support network dedicated to empowering residents of the Cayman Islands interested in learning a new language. The goal of this program is to provide an introduction to the Mandarin language and culture in a friendly and non-intimidating setting. Throughout the program, we will learn the basics of speaking, listening, reading and writing and explore different topics including, but not limited to: names, greetings, countries, dates, directions, festival, history and geography.
