You will apply the techniques of memory athletes, creating connections to new characters and vocabulary based on people, places, objects, and actions from your own life. Learning this way is super-fun, super-efficient, and 100% personal to you.

How the Course Works

There are 6 unique phases within The Mandarin Blueprint Method. Each phase focuses on a key element of Mandarin and builds seamlessly upon one another in a linear, unified learning experience all the way to literacy and fluency.



Before learning any language, you will make much faster progress if you first learn how to produce, identify and read every syllable. Our video course Pronunciation Mastery teaches you everything you need to know, and it comes free with any subscription of The Mandarin Blueprint Method. It can also be purchased individually.
Character Building

Character Building

Using our patent-pending mnemonic visualization system "The Hanzi Movie Method", you'll learn how to read, write and pronounce any Chinese character in a matter of seconds.
Vocabulary Building

Vocabulary Building

As you speed-learn characters, you will “unlock” new words with increasing frequency. We guide you on how to acquire these new words easily by creating mnemonics based on their intuitive word structure, and drawing on your life experience.
Sentence Building

Sentence Building

After you've built up a foundation of Chinese words, we will show you carefully crafted sentences that almost exclusively contain characters and words you have already learned. By following this step-by-step process, you will be reading and understanding Chinese in a matter of hours.
Paragraph Building

Paragraph Building

Now things really start to get fun! On top of sentences, you'll start unlocking entire paragraphs filled with conversations and opinions, all of which you'll be able to read and understand without help! This deeper, more engaging context makes learning grammar an enjoyable and natural process, instead of a mind-numbing slog through a series of textbooks.
Story Building

Story Building

In this final phase, we'll start introducing longer-form content created by our native Chinese writers. Once again, these are expertly designed using words and characters you have already learned. By reading and listening to all of this content daily, you'll find your Mandarin skills increasing faster than you ever thought possible!


High Quality HD Video & Native Audio

We produced all of the 850 videos in the course to a high standard in our sound-proof booth, and every single video is edited to be short, engaging and a pleasure to watch. All of our native audio is also studio-quality, and both male and female are available.

Easy-to-Use Course Platform

All 4,200 lessons and 57 levels will be accessible immediately from desktop and mobile as soon as you sign up. The videos load quickly, and everything from navigating the platform itself to downloading your support materials is intuitive and clear.

A Wealth of Support Materials

Your success is our success. That's why we read and answer every email and comment, usually through video response or as a part of our weekly podcast. It's just like having your own personal language coaches there with you all the way to fluency.

A Living, Growing Curriculum
