Pronunciation is the absolute best place to start learning Chinese, or any language for that matter. If you can understand, produce and read all of the sounds of Chinese accurately from the get-go, you will find your progress many times faster and easier than those who neglect it.
This is why our first video course “Pronunciation Mastery” contains everything you need to know in just 8 hours of video, plus a ton of bonus materials to keep you focused and motivated.
If you want any long-term success with Chinese, then learning characters is 100% essential. Usually this involves “rote learning”, where you write the characters over and over again until they are burned into your memory. Not fun.
Luckily, we have developed a highly effective system that leverages memory techniques currently used by world memory champions that allows you to read, write and pronounce any character in less than one minute.
Once you have started learning individual characters, you should start learning the most common words. This is so you can build a small foundation upon which to start understanding whole sentences. Vocabulary acquisition is usually a boring grind with the old way of doing things, but we have some seriously effective methods that make the whole process a walk in the park.
Grammar is simply how words behave in various contexts, and the best way to get used to how Chinese words behave is to see and hear them in context a lot.
With our system, you will be able to read Chinese without the help of pinyin within a matter of a few hours, all without boring textbooks and complicated grammar explanations.
Once you have got to grips with the basics of characters, vocabulary and grammar, it is time to start incorporating speaking and writing regularly into your study routine. In fact, you will naturally want to output more and more as your understanding increases through daily listening and reading.
