Thank you for making a very thoughtful and comprehensive course. I really appreciate all the details that has been thought in the course. I can’t wait to start learning HSK 1 course.


Hello LiLi, how can I buy this course?

Graduated Student

So, I have a question about names. When I look at translation of my name to Chinese it looks sort of like this 黑暗山强度 . My name is Sierra, and that was it’s meaning if I go based on why my parents named me…. but it seems impossible to use that name. It’s a Spanish Irish translation into Chinese, and someone I’m trying to practice with said it is much easier if I try to adopt a Chinese name for the future.

Graduated Student

Excellent course, I found it very useful! The only area of opportunity that I found was that the final exam was way too easy and too short, it should be longer and harder so we can really test everything that you taught us. Other than that, I loved it.

Graduated Student

Hi Lili,
I took this course last year (probably some lessons this year too). I did all the tests but I don’t have a ‘certificate’ for any test? I do have a green checkmark next to all the tests. Is there a separate test I have to pass?


I like that your Beginner Chinese Course is simple and to the point whereas others are too complicated for beginners.
