Not really. However, the constituent element of written Chinese language is characters, not PinYin! And it will be difficult to go on studying Chinese above intermediate level if you are not acquainted with characters. So, the teachers will spend some minutes to explain Chinese characters and their rules in each class, and XMandarin CLC also has develped a system with text book to help you learn characters(please enquire your course advisor), so that you can identify them in the future.
XMandarin is dedicated to taking you out of the classroom and showing you the real China.
