Reading is the key to making that dream a reality FAST.
According to the most cited linguistic research and polyglot (speakers of many languages) around the world, all languages are acquired in only one way:
By getting understandable messages into your eyes & ears.
In other words: Consume Chinese content you understand A LOT.
But, did you know that the fastest and easiest way of doing this is by first learning how to read?
Reading is so much more comprehensible than listening (especially for a beginner) because you can take as much time as you need to get the message of a sentence. This is not the case with listening.
Reading has been proven in countless linguistic studies to be an incredibly effective way of acquiring vocabulary and grammar, too.
But that’s not all…
Reading also makes otherwise incomprehensible listening-based content, such as TV and podcasts, way easier through the use of subtitles and transcripts.
Put simply: The quicker you learn to read, the sooner you’ll have AMAZING breakthroughs with Chinese.
Here’s the problem, though…
The Chinese writing system is notoriously difficult to master and acts as a HUGE barrier to entry for learners.
To become literate, you need to learn thousands of characters and words, which is super boring and takes years with conventional methods…
But thankfully, there is an alternative:
This 9000-lesson curriculum can get you to a near-native level of Chinese comprehension in a fraction of the time of even the best alternatives we’ve seen.
All from your laptop or phone, without ever going to class, paying for a tutor, or picking up a textbook.
The curriculum is like a Chinese degree on steroids, and members enjoy access to Chinese experts on the Member Service Team whenever they need, so The Blueprint is priced at $997 for lifetime access.
But hey…we get it…even with an installment plan, that’s a bit steep for some learners, especially when they aren’t yet aware of what is possible with the course.
So, we came up with an idea…
What if we challenged people to reach the point in the curriculum where they realize basic literacy?
That would allow learners to get incredible results and see the true value of The Blueprint for a fraction of the full price. At the same time, we’ll help them smash any false beliefs about Chinese being “the hardest language in the world.”
Before jumping into characters, we’ll first get you up to speed on how to pronounce Mandarin and read pinyin (if you don’t know already) and how to set up your flashcards. If you get through this part quickly, feel free to get a head start on characters!
On Day 2, go get started with Phase 1 (levels 1-6) of the course and begin learning characters with the proven & effective memory palace technique called “The Hanzi Movie Method.” We’ll provide daily goals to keep you on track.
Midway through the challenge, and you’ll start unlocking “compound words.” These are multiple-character words made up of characters you’ve already learned. You’ll then use the MB mnemonic technique called “Living Links” to memorize words in seconds. Don’t forget to finish your flashcard reviews each day.
On the final day, you’ll unlock hundreds of sentences, and you’ll watch a lesson going over thr first 30. You will be able to read and understand these sentences (plus hundreds more) without the need for pinyin or english translation. For real.
After this point, you can take your skills even further and continue all the way to the end of Phase 3 (level 20), reaching 263 characters, 350 words, and hundreds of example sentences! This makes up at least 65% of Chinese by coverage.
After both passing the highest level Chinese exam in 25% of the average time by immersing in comprehensible Chinese content, we joined forces to build a course that could get learners to advanced Chinese comprehension as fast as possible.
After years of hard work, The Blueprint is now complete.
This course has made it possible for anyone to go from zero to advanced in a fraction of the time of conventional methods, and you can now get permanent access to a huge chunk of it for just $7 USD today.
You’ll get 30 days of access to the first 3 phases (20 levels) of our patent-pending curriculum, The Blueprint, a companion course with videos guiding you through the challenge and keeping you on track, dedicated Member Service support from Chinese experts answering your questions throughout the challenge, and Traverse flashcard access and support.
All these features and benefits are worth at least $650, but here’s something you get that’s worth far more…
If you manage to stay on track and complete a level each day, you will also be able to read basic Chinese without pinyin or English translation. From this achievement comes the biggest benefit of The MB Challenge: Confidence.
You’ll know that Chinese is not only far easier than you may have thought, but that it is indeed possible for you to become fluent in a fraction of the time of most learners.
You’ll have the choice to do either a 15-day or a 30-day challenge. The emails and course materials are identical for each, and you’ll get 30-days total access to the course materials. If you choose a 15 day challenge, you’ll still get 30 days of access, but the emails will be spread over 15 days instead of 30.
Your access will be revoked after 30 days. Towards the end, we’ll give you the chance to purchase the entire curriculum (with a discount) or just the 20 levels of the challenge for a much smaller fee.
If you complete the 20 levels available before the challenge ends, you will be able to learn how to read, write, and pronounce (with the correct tone) 263 common Chinese characters and 350 common words, which make up 65%+ of Chinese by coverage.
We’ll also provide you with hundreds of completely comprehensible Chinese sentences with studio-quality native audio. You can download these for listening practice and review them as flashcards.
You’ll also learn The Hanzi Movie Method & Living Links mnemonic techniques via MB’s patent-pending Optimal Character Learning Order (OCLO).
You can choose either a 15-day or 30-day challenge.
The 15-day challenge demands a 2-3 hour daily time commitment, and the 30-day challenge requires about 1 hour per day.
However, regardless of which challenge you choose, you’ll get to maintain access for an additional 15 bonus days after the challenge ends. This way, if you get delayed at any point, you’ll still have a chance to acquire all the material.
You’ll have access to both Phases 1 to 3 (levels 1-20), the companion course materials, and Traverse for the length of the challenge + 15 bonus days.
Yes. You can get your money back within 30 days.
Yes and no. The Member Service Team will be supporting you and answering questions via email and comment section every day throughout the challenge. However, this is an “evergreen” course, so anyone can start the challenge at any time.
No problem! You’ll have access to the course materials for 15 bonus days after the challenge is over. That’s plenty of time to catch up if you got delayed. That said, we want to push you to make crazy progress in a short time and experience the true power of The Blueprint curriculum.
