How to Achieve Mandarin Proficiency FAST Without Burning Out or Giving Up

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.

Pronunciation
PRE-PHASE

Pronunciation

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
PHASE 1

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
PHASE 2

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
PHASE 3

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
PHASE 4

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
PHASE 5

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!

Our Guarantee

Take 30 days to test, learn, and impress your Chinese friends.

It takes the average classroom student 2 YEARS (full time) just to get to HSK 4 basic vocabulary and grammar. With the Mandarin Blueprint Method, you can get the same results in 25% of the time at just an hour or two per day. This means that you don’t have to wait years before kinda, sorta, seeing some improvement.

As long as you show up every day and follow the clear instructions laid out in our videos, here are typical results you can expect:

Most Mandarin Blueprint users see a significant improvement to their pronunciation in just 6 hours. They can efficiently use mind palaces to read, write, and pronounce over 100 Chinese characters easily after 25 hours. Our members can typically start reading and writing entire sentences after just 50 hours. With consistent effort, they can start speaking Mandarin fluently in just 6 months. If these figures are correct, you should certainly be able to see results in 30 days if you invest some time each day, right? So...

Take 4 weeks to test Mandarin Blueprint to your heart’s content.

Test every feature, watch every lesson, try every exercise. Don’t commit fully until you’re convinced Mandarin Blueprint is right for you, and the above achievements are truly possible. And if (for any reason or no reason) you don’t feel like the course is for you, simply send an email to [email protected] within 30 days and we’ll send back every dollar. No awkward arm twisting or jumping through hoops. We’ll thank you for giving us a fair shot and let you go on your way.

Made By Learners, For Learners

Phil Crimmins
Luke Neale

We both learned Mandarin – “one of the most difficult languages in the world” – as a second language. As adults. Reaching advanced fluency took us years of study and many thousands of dollars. Over the years we discovered the best tools, and invent our own techniques to make Mandarin easy and fun. Now we’ve put all that knowledge into a 100% unique, patent-pending system to learn Chinese. A blueprint for English speakers who want to learn Mandarin Chinese.
