As much as we would like everyone to join our course, it is not for everyone.

This course is not suitable for

Experienced Mandarin learners: As we have made Mandarin Chinese one of the easiest languages to learn (we really believe so!), experienced Mandarin learners will find our course to be too easy and ask for a refund immediately.

People with very slow internet: Obviously, if you’re reading this, you have internet. Even though we have hosted our videos on fast servers, if you can’t even load Youtube smoothly, you are not going to enjoy our constantly-buffering videos and slow-loading Quiz Ups.

People who don’t know basic English: You obviously know English if you’re reading this, which means you don’t fall under this category. Just please don’t get this course for someone who speaks only Spanish, because we use English as our primary language of teaching.

This course is suitable for

Anyone who wants to learn Mandarin from scratch: If you have absolutely zero knowledge on Mandarin, that is awesome, because you will go from zero to hero by the end of this course.

Anyone who has tried but failed to learn Mandarin: Yes, Mandarin is famous for being difficult, but we have made it one of the easiest languages with our unconventionally effective learning techniques. That’s why it’s value for money.

People who can speak but can't read: If you already know how to speak but don’t know how to read and want to learn that, feel free to take this course which contains beautiful and memorable pictograms.

Comments from Real People

I even remember the basics now that I had learned over a month ago... It's much better than anything I have found elsewhere.

A lot of effort to make it entertaining visually, clear and fun. Gloson Teh is terrific.

Julien Neel, Singer, 36

It's great for beginners 👍 The format of videos, readings then quiz is easy to follow and short and concise enough for someone to do it in their spare time.

Ian Tan, Filmmaker, 19

It's actually better than even trying to get a textbook or listening at the door of the Mandarin exam preparation classes. The videos are hilarious and it doesn't take long for me to learn.
