Description

This course is for complete beginners to learn Mandarin Chinese, a tonal language thought to be one of the hardest in the world. However, I came up with my own method to help you dive into this ancient language. Divided into easy video lessons, this beginner's course is designed to be user-friendly.

Before starting the lessons, each student will receive and should read a PDF with Jason's Method for Effective Language Learning, a method comprising 7 rules to help you learn any language.

Who is the target audience?
  • This Beginner's Mandarin Chinese course is for complete beginners, students who have had only a little exposure to Mandarin and those who want to learn Mandarin for any reason. It is not for those who already know some intermediate Mandarin Chinese.

Chinese Instructor

A native speaker of Chinese with over 15 years experience studying, I devised a method for new students to learn Mandarin Chinese, thought to be one of the hardest languages in the world.

I hold a degree in linguistics and education as well as having taught privately in various schools throughout the world.
