Our Happy Clients


This is NOT a click-and-buy ‘you’re on your own now’ type course. This is interactive, with people who want to learn, bridge cultural gaps, and excel Thinking about learning Mandarin? THIS IS HOW. It’s FUN. Seriously, I was prepared to put in hours of work, but it’s not even work! I ENJOY it.

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 😀

Truly grateful for your effort in creating Mandarin Blueprint for us. Thank you a thousand times.

I love the Mandarin Blueprint Method, it is one of a kind. I have been struggling with my Mandarin learning journey before because studying the characters was difficult. Now that I am using the MBM, I am enjoying the Chinese characters more. Once you get the hang of the method, learning the characters becomes enjoyable. I highly recommend it to those who are serious about learning Mandarin.

An excellent language learning program. After trying to learn Mandarin on and off for 15 years, I’ve made more advances in the past 3 months than everything prior to this.

I can’t think of a better way to learn Chinese than Mandarin Blueprint, literally since the first lesson I took I understood everything with such ease thanks to the short and amazing explanation I received. I can surely say that I enjoy every single second of every lesson. 🙂

Luke & Phil have developed a truly amazing system of learning Chinese. And, what’s even better is that they have made it FUN to learn! I’ve gone from thinking that Chinese is the most difficult language in the world to learn to realizing that it is probably one of the easiest. Thank you so much to both of you for putting together The Mandarin Blueprint Method. It really is life-changing!

I cannot really describe how great this technique is and how amazing these guys are at explaining it! I cannot recommend this highly enough to do it justice. If you have ever wanted to learn Mandarin but have felt intimidated by it (who hasn’t, lol) these guys can take away that fear so easily with their method!

I’ve just finished the foundational Pronunciation Mastery course after about three weeks of mostly daily work. The content was very well presented with a nice mix of instruction, inspiration with native speaker reviews interspersed throughout. While I feel a bit overwhelmed, Luke and Phil are very reassuring about moving forward on the next phase of my Mandarin learning journey using their method. The pricing is very reasonable and with the free trial period, you can’t go wrong. Onward!

Outstanding course: detailed but approachable, with lots of supporting materials. Extremely pleased! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I cannot recommend this course highly enough. I have lived in Hong Kong for 12 years, spent time in Chine, have a Chinese wife and speak OK Mandarin. The pronunciation course alone was worth every penny. But when it comes to characters – I can only say … marvellous.

I finished your course recently, thank you so so much for putting it all together!! At around level 48, I stopped learning words through the course and just learned the characters. Using your method I have also learned some more characters than are on the intermediate course while I wait for the advanced course. I know around 2000 characters now and can pick up any fiction book and recognize almost all of the characters (is this reality?! XD)!

I’ve tried various methods to learn foreign languages: books, recordings, tutors, classroom instruction, movies and TV shows, and most recently, YouTube. But, by far, the Mandarin Blueprint method is the most effective way I have discovered learning Chinese. An additional benefit to this method is that it has also reinforced my understanding of the other languages! Thank you Luke and Phil!

OMG Luke and Phil!!!!! I did it!😄 I spent money on my little tiny idea of being able to speak Mandarin. People think I’m crazy. The few that I dare tell. Thanks for your support and encouragement through your’s and Phil’s vids and thanks to everyone that has supported both of you to create such a wonderful program. Yayyyyyy It’s 5 am here and I’m awake to study Mandarin.

Final character, made it! Kinda hard to believe really – now I’m going back to boost the vocab and immerse myself in the stories. Thanks, Phil and Luke, you’re right – turn up every day, change it up if you’re not enjoying it, don’t let the short game get in the way of the long game, and stop writing down those scenes!

I passed HSK3 many years ago so I supposedly knew much of it already, but now, I know that I knew nothing at that time. Now I KNOW these 307 characters, up to the stroke orders. This is amazing. And life in China actually became even more enjoyable, any Chinese written on a wall becomes immediately an opportunity to identify props in them, they don’t look indecipherable anymore, quite the opposite. You can be proud of your work, you’re going to unlock so many Chinese speakers over time. Thank you!

Guys, I cannot believe I can read (albeit extremely basic) I have tried so many times before, but this course far trumps all of that. I started this course from pronunciation only 5 weeks ago and it feels incredible to be able to read without pinyin. I’m so eager to learn more and the more I read the easier it becomes to remember characters, even top-down ones. Thanks for such a fantastic course!

I have just completed my first pass through the pronunciation mastery course and it is incredible how detailed Luke, Phil, Annie, and the team were with this comprehensive treatment of Pinyin! I feel totally oriented now in the sounds of the language and therefore much more confident about the work ahead to become proficient in Mandarin. This is a great course and I highly recommend it to English-speaking learners of Chinese.

This is an extremely detailed course that gives a great foundation in pronunciation. I will need to go back through it, of course, as I don’t learn perfect pronunciation the first time through, but all of the charts, audio, explanations, physical pronunciation positions are there. A great course!

I am rebooting from the beginning with pronunciation revision. You are both excellent speakers. What lured me to the course was a brief video with Luke who I thought was a Chinese Buddhist monk, you both speak with such perfect Beijinger accents, and reviewing pronunciation is not a waste of time. This is fun! And I love TRAVERSE so much easier to use than ANKI- thanks for making the switch.

I started the course as a complete beginner, knowing next to nothing about the language other than hello and thank you. After slightly more than three months, I can confidently say I know more than 600 characters and 1000 words. Not just how to read and speak, but how to write with the correct stroke order. I’d like to thank Phil and Luke for providing such a groundbreaking course.

I started studying with Mandarin Blueprint 6 weeks before the HSK 1 exam with zero knowledge about this language. I was very nervous because I’ve read it takes at least one semester of classroom study to pass. Thanks to Luke and Phil I did manage to pass HSK 1! I was so happy to receive my certificate. Indeed nothing is impossible with dedication and proper guidance! Thank you so much Mandarin Blueprint!

Even just the Pronunciation Mastery Course is worth every penny. But there is that and so much more, the best way to actually learn Chinese in my opinion. Just follow the track and you will be able to learn much faster than you think!

Mandarin Blueprint sets you up for success! It’s pretty amazing how I’d only spend 3-5 mins on learning a character and can then “summon” the tone, meaning, initial and final pretty easily. Not only do they offer plenty of resources and study tips such as planning your environment, also lots of motivational stuff to get you in the right mindset. Most of all, Phil and Luke have such an infectious passion for the language, which makes them dedicated and naturally effective in teaching it.

I have just finished the Pronunciation course and would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to learn Mandarin Chinese. The videos are clear, concise & entertaining, and if you ever have a question Luke & Phil are very quick at responding. I’ve also started the foundation course and I’m confident that the method is providing a holistic way of learning Chinese. It’s great not having to figure it out on my own!

I started taking the pronunciation mastery course at the same time as a university distance learning course. My tutor is Chinese and has high praise for my pronunciation – it’s all down to this course from MB! Thank you!

To anyone learning Chinese, I have just bought that course and I must say it is already amazing. I would never have thought about learning this way. Luke and Phil are so calm and confident that just watching them makes me more relaxed and sure I will achieve my goal. Give it a try. I did and don’t regret it.

A really great experience that I will never forget. Mandarin blueprint laid the foundation for my Chinese journey and made learning characters a lot easier and also fun! Their method helped me to learn more than 300 characters in less than a month. Even after I stopped studying for some time and returned to learning Chinese I could still remember them. Luke and Phil are so helpful and encouraging, and they are with you every step of the way. Highly recommended.
