Learn Every Aspect of Mandarin in One Place

As you progress through the 6 phases and 4000 lessons of the course, you will learn how to pronounce like a native, how to read and write full stories, and how to speak fluently. All the content is laid out for you in perfect order, and all of the boring leg-work is done for you.

Acquire Chinese the Natural (and Fun) Way

No more boring textbooks, teachers or classes. Instead, you’ll apply a combination of patent-pending memory techniques, learning technologies, and top linguistic research to reach your goals way faster, while actually enjoying yourself the entire time.

The Ultimate Personalized Learning Experience

You will learn the techniques of memory athletes, by creating connections to new characters and vocabulary based on people, places, objects, and actions from your own life. This creates a learning experience that is not only super-efficient, but also 100% unique 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!
