Impress Your Peers

你好 Nǐhǎo! , we’re Luke & Phil, and circa 2013, we were where you may be right now..trying to learn Chinese but unsure how.

We bet this story sounds familiar:

You sign up for a class, start using a website, or download a shiny new APP to learn Chinese….

You feel a little progress at first. You might even have a bit of fun…

But, after the honeymoon period ends & it starts to get repetitive, you become bored, frustrated, and overwhelmed…

It dawns on you not only how much there is to learn but also that this method either isn’t going to get you to genuine fluency or it’s going to require Navy Seal levels of discipline to fight through the boredom.

Negative thoughts start to creep in like:

“Chinese is just too hard”

“I’m not disciplined enough”

“I don’t have enough time for this”

Or, worst of all…

“I’m bad at languages.”

Once you reach this point, it’s game over.

You either quit or decide to “take a break” from Chinese, only to begin the cycle again a few weeks or months later.

We understand this because we’ve been through it ourselves, over and over. It sucks, and you shouldn’t have to go through this.

The two of us spent thousands of hours and tens of thousands of dollars trying every learning method we could…and we made almost ZERO progress.

Heck, even Phil’s university degree in Chinese didn’t help him become the fluent Mandarin speaker he is today!

What helped us finally achieve Mandarin fluency? 

We discovered the truth about what it takes to learn languages…

The Right Way To Learn Chinese

It has now been shown conclusively with decades of linguistic research & real-life case studies that to speak a second language fluently, we must absorb it naturally through listening and reading, just like we did with our first language.

Renowned linguistic researcher Dr. Steven Krashen explains this perfectly:

“We acquire language in one way and ONLY one way: By understanding messages.”

As soon as you understand this simple truth, learning Chinese stops feeling like hard work and instantly transforms into a fun game!

Once we made “understandable messages” our focus, we went from potentially quitting to fluency and passing the highest-level Chinese proficiency exam, all in under a year!

Here’s us today, fluent Mandarin speakers…

You know what this means, right?You are NOT “bad at languages”…You CAN become a fluent Chinese speaker much faster and easier than you realize…You just need the right approach…A way of learning that taps into your innate ability to suck up languages like a sponge!

Here are the three steps you need to follow

Step 1:
Build understanding

Learn the sounds & tones of Chinese. Learn how to read. This will allow you to…

Step 2:
Get messages you understand

Listen to, read, and watch Chinese content that is understandable. In turn, you can…

Step 3:
Activate what you understood

Practice speaking to fully activate the language you have acquired through immersion!

While beautiful in its simplicity, executing this plan without a guide takes a long time and a LOT of trial and error (speaking from experience here!).

Here’s why:

  • You have to learn 3,000+ characters to be fully literate. Woah!
  • Tones can be a nightmare to get the hang of without the proper coaching…
  • Retaining everything you learn efficiently is a HUGE task….
  • It’s next to impossible to find understandable messages when you’re at a lower level.

We saw these problems and spent years perfecting a new approach to acquiring Chinese that makes building understanding, getting messages, and activating the language truly easy and fun.

We call it…


“Like a Chinese Degree On Steroids”

"I’ve tried many other methods out there, but I have made more progress in the past 6 weeks using Blueprint than I made in the previous year with other courses."
- Paul Forbes
"I don’t think I've ever been so completely absorbed in anything in my life, not in decades anyway. My family is worried about my mental health :D"
- Natalia Kovalenko
"My husband is Chinese, and he’s very impressed that it’s possible for us learners to memorize in weeks what took him several years to get right, at school! I genuinely look forward to this, each day."
- Julia Chen


The Blueprint is a series of four courses that take you step-by-step to advanced Chinese proficiency quickly and easily by following our science-backed “Build, Get, Activate” framework….

Step 1: Build understanding

The first course, Pronunciation Mastery, teaches you how to pronounce every Mandarin syllable and tone like a native in just a few hours.

Mastering pronunciation is the very first foundational step towards fluency, providing you with a huge boost to your listening and speaking ability!

Course #1: Pronunciation Mastery

  • ​​6 Hours of Core Video Content
  • ​​2 Hours of Bonus Video Content
  • 1000+ Audio Flashcards
  • ​Bonus PDFs & Quizzes

What you’ll be able to do:

  • Achieve accurate (even native-like) and effortless pronunciation of every syllable (including the most challenging sounds in the language)
  • Produce all of the Mandarin tones and tone combinations easily and accurately
  • Massively boost your listening and speaking ability
  • Massively increase your confidence and motivation
  • Say anything you want from a phrase book effortlessly
  • Type and text in Chinese
  • Fix existing pronunciation problems
  • Save approximately $500 and many hours of boredom on classes and tutors!

$750 Value

Once you’ve got the basics of pronunciation, you’ll move on to The Mandarin Blueprint Method curriculum and begin learning how to read Chinese…

We’ll start off the course by teaching you how to read, write, and pronounce Chinese characters in seconds and remember them easily using our astoundingly effective mnemonic visualization system.

As you learn common characters, you’ll unlock common words at an extraordinary rate…

Once you’ve easily built a small foundation of common characters and words, it will be time to move on to…

Step 2: Get Messages You Understand

You’ll begin to unlock completely comprehensible example sentences with male and female studio-quality audio. Reviewing these daily will help you acquire Chinese grammar naturally and effortlessly, just like you did with your native language!

Instead of learning thousands of characters before Chinese becomes somewhat understandable, you’ll read & listen to real Chinese (no pinyin or English) in about the same time as a couple of long-haul flights!

THIS is the Mandarin Blueprint difference…

Later on, as you continue to master characters and words, you will unlock completely understandable dialogues, articles, and stories meticulously tailored to your level…

Understand all of this easily in weeks! 👇

Thanks to our unique, patent-pending curriculum structure, all of these moving parts build on what you already know and work together in harmony, so you never feel lost.

By the end of The Mandarin Blueprint Method curriculum, you’ll master 3050 characters, and 11,800 words, or 99.4% of the language by frequency!

$ Value!

Long before you reach the end of the Mandarin Blueprint Method, you’ll be able to begin immersing in real Chinese media (TV shows, movies, podcasts, books, comics, etc.) and understand it.

However, immersing in Chinese is confusing and super intimidating at first without a guide, which is why we created a third course: “Mandarin Immersion Masterclass (MIM)”

This course contains all the tools and techniques you need to achieve advanced Chinese fluency through immersing in native Chinese content, such as TV shows, movies, books, comics, video games, podcasts, graded readers and audiobooks.

Course #3: Mandarin Immersion Masterclass

  • ​​Save​ potentially hundreds of hours hunting for Chinese media at your level and the best immersion methods and tools!

$1000 Value

As soon as you can understand Chinese using what you learn from these courses, you’re ready to move on to the final stage

Step 3: Activate What You Understood

As soon as you can understand Chinese, you’re ready to start honing your speaking skill.

After some time spent activating your vocabulary in speaking sessions, you’ll realize you can think in Chinese and express yourself with shocking ease. You may even be completely unaware of how you know what you know. That is the weird and wonderful experience of true language acquisition.

You aren’t “learning Chinese” anymore. You’re living it. From here, you can take your Chinese skill as far as you want, and you won’t want to stop for the rest of your life. We haven’t yet!

But, just in case you need some help building the Chinese learning habit, we’ve got you covered there too…

Course #4: Habit-Building Bootcamp

  • ​​Learn to track, review, and refine your habits for life-long success.
  • ​​Break bad habits that prevent you from achieving the Chinese level you desire.
  • ​​Save​ the stress and frustration of NOT being able to find the time to progress at Chinese!

First off, Chinese is NOT difficult. Not anymore.

What makes Chinese hard is primarily the writing system and the tones, but by following The Blueprint curriculum, you’ll soon realize that we made these challenging aspects of Chinese officially easy.

As for being bad at languages? Well, that’s not true either. We are ALL language learning machines. To prove this, just remember that you achieved effortless fluency in your native language already! To achieve the same for Chinese, you simply need to apply a similar approach:

Listen and read a lot, and then practice speaking.

The Blueprint will help you do this, step-by-step.

Most learners give up on Chinese when they feel like their energy, time, energy, and money is being wasted on methods that aren’t moving them towards their goal of fluency. With The Mandarin Blueprint, you have a logical, proven roadmap to advanced Chinese, and you’ll know that every minute spent is well worth it.

So in short, NO, you are unlikely to give up on Chinese after becoming a Mandarin Blueprint member.  

We accept all major credit cards, debit cards, Paypal, and Wechat (for single payment only). For WeChat Pay, please contact us directly at

We take your privacy seriously. For that reason, we use Stripe as our payment processor. The credit card data that you enter will never pass through or be stored on any of our machines. The data is sent directly to Stripe or Paypal, where maximum protection and security of financial data is ensured.

Of course! Within 90 days from the moment you are charged, we will give you a full refund if you are unsatisfied. No questions asked.

If you do the method as instructed, finish your flashcard reviews every day, and put in enough speaking practice to use what you learn with us, then you will be able to read and speak Mandarin fluently much faster and easier than the average learner.

Would you ask somebody born into fabulous wealth how to get rich?!

Native speakers can produce the language accurately and with excellent pronunciation since childhood, and they generally don’t know how to acquire the language effectively as adults.

We, on the other hand, achieved high levels of fluency in Mandarin (C1 level) as adults using the very same science-backed methods and tools we share with you on the course!

A team of native Chinese writers, professors, and voice artists helped us create the wealth of Chinese reading and listening content within The Blueprint, and we highly recommend using native tutors for speaking practice later on. But, when it comes to the language acquisition process itself, best leave that to the real experts!

We guarantee that you will become proficient in Mandarin (and have a blast while doing it) as long as you follow our instructions.

If you follow the lessons within The Blueprint, finish your flashcard reviews every day, and put in enough immersion time and speaking practice, then you WILL be able to read and speak Mandarin fluently, just like we can!

There are many moving parts to The Mandarin Blueprint, and that’s because Chinese is also huge and we teach you every single aspect of the language effectively and comprehensively.

But DO NOT worry about any of this.

We’ve precisely arranged every lesson for you in a perfectly intuitive order, so you never feel lost or confused. You’ll progress at your own pace, gradually working from the most simple character components to ancient Chinese stories.

No way. We have learners of all ages, all being successful. Some of our most senior students are seeing the best results!

Absolutely not. We have 9,000+ lessons, and more than 2,000 videos covering 99%+ of Mandarin Chinese. That’s enough material for everyone from absolute beginner to advanced level. If you already have a foundation in Chinese, start from the beginning and skip what you already know. Simple!

Our courses can get you to any level you desire, whether you want to have basic conversations or approach a native level.

If you only want to learn a few phrases for a business trip then perhaps this isn’t for you right now. However, in our experience speaking in-depth with so many of our members, goals change.

You might not be so committed right now, but once you start to see how easy and rewarding learning with us can be, you’ll likely decide to change your goals and invest more and more of your time and energy into this valuable skill.

A final message from THE Co-FounderS Luke & PHIL

Of course, you could take the money you would have invested in our course and access Chinese learning apps, a string of native-speaking tutors, and a pile of textbooks.

But guess what?

After your money and time is spent, there is a good chance you will NOT be fluent or literate in Chinese.

Our methods are backed by top linguistic research and have been proven to work for thousands of members.

Don’t take our word for it. Just take a look the hundreds of 5-star testimonials!

But say you decide NOT to try Mandarin Blueprint.

What then?

You might still succeed (we hope you do). But it’s going to be a much longer, more difficult journey.

You’ll almost certainly need to slog your way through many textbooks…

Or write out characters over and over until you’ve memorized them.

Most students hire a native tutor and take group classes…

These range from kinda-pricey to “holy cow, that’s expensive”…

And even if you are happy to spend that kind of money, most learners struggle with native speakers because they never seem to know HOW to acquire Chinese.

Once the initial motivation inevitably fizzles out and you realize you are mostly just treading water, you quit.

And so the cycle of Mandarin learning continues…

It took us several years, thousands of dollars, and many failures to figure out the best way to learn Chinese…

And if you were determined enough, you could too.

But why should you?

We already did it the hard way and created a superior system for acquiring Chinese…

The Mandarin Blueprint is NOT just a series of memory gimmicks.

It is NOT an illusion of progress.

It’s a complete curriculum to take you from zero to true literacy and fluency.

Once you become a Mandarin Blueprint member, you will be consuming native Chinese content easily, thinking in Chinese, and producing the language naturally.

Once you notice you can recall how to read, write, and pronounce every character and word you learn…

Once you read your first Chinese sentence without any help whatsoever…

Once you can understand and enjoy Chinese movies, books, podcasts, and tv shows…

Once you find yourself able to say things you never thought you’d be able to communicate in a language you once judged “impossible to learn”…

You’ll know that you aren’t “bad at languages”…

In fact…


We all are.

Mandarin fluency is still a long road, but your path is paved, the map is clear, and you have two experts to guide you every step of the way.

Here’s all you need to do:

Step 1:
Buy The Blueprint
Step 2:
Follow the lessons
Step 3:
Master Chinese

Now, it’s time to take that first step…
