The guys at Mandarin Blueprint have found a way to turn learning Chinese into an interactive, fun, and engaging game. By focusing on reading, writing, pronouncing, and comprehending characters, Luke and Phil provide a window into a deeper understanding of.
Their system is so cleverly constructed that I constantly find myself wanting to learn new characters so that I can discover new words, and then new phrases, and eventually begin creating complete sentences.
I’ve been trying to learn Chinese for over two years fairly unsuccessfully. I’ve learnt more that I know will “stick” in the few months of doing Mandarin Blueprint than in two years of study before. Reasons for this include Mandarin Blueprint’s method is actually really enjoyable. Each lesson is jam-packed with Phil and Lukes passion and skill at being able to teach a foreigner Chinese. Their teaching style and course content engages, inspires and motivates. The Hanzi Movie Method of character learning is near magic.
Phil and Luke have done an excellent job putting together their own teaching program and they are one of the most patient and amazingly prepared teachers I’ve ever worked with. This program helps you in a different approach to learning Chinese and it helped me a lot. Luke and Phil know every difficulties/ problem that could hold back a foreigner to learn Chinese successfully. And the Hanzi Movie Method is just brilliant.
This course has everything that the traditional University tracks lack: instead of teaching me Chinese, Luke and Phil taught me how to LEARN Chinese and gave me the tools to advance on my own. As a habitually independent learner, Mandarin Blueprint was exactly what I needed!
I had tried learning Mandarin both before coming to China and while living here. I have definitely learnt and remembered more in the 8 weeks at Mandarin Blueprint than I had done previously. The materials given to us were interesting and relevant and ideas we can easily implement and use in our everyday lives. 谢谢。
Just a few weeks ago, reading Chinese was something I deemed impossible. Now I walk down the street and find myself staring up at buildings and reading them in a state of curiosity. I can’t stress enough how thrilling that discovery has been. Granted, I’m not an expert yet, but Mandarin Blueprint has taken something that was nonexistent and has steadily made it existent in the most exciting and uplifting way.
