APRIL 2016

We released our Hands-On Writing course. The definitive course on writing Chinese characters. We went over everything from strokes, to stroke order, all the things you need to learn how to write ANY chinese character.

JUNE 2016

We came out with our How to Say in Chinese course. A free course designed to give you more than one way of saying something. We believe that to sound like a native speaker, the words and phrases you use need to have some diversity.


We released our Pinyin Drills course. Designed to teach you the entire pinyin system. Because after learning pinyin, you will know not only how to pronounce Chinese words but also how to type in Chinese.


We came out with our Tone Drills course. Nearly all Chinese learners have trouble with the 4 Mandarin Chinese tones. We wanted to create a course that shows people that it doesn’t have to be so difficult, that they too can learn the Chinese tones.
