Technically speaking, We design our courses by these principles:

Comprehensible Input

According to the theory of comprehensible input, developed by Stephen Krashen in 1977, providing a learner with language input just above their current level is the most effective way to learn a language. So all videos in this course are presented in Chinese with English subtitles because we want to maximize your language exposure. The instructors speak in Chinese at an appropriate speed so you can follow along. You don't have to catch every single word but to understand the main idea and get used to the speech flow of  Chinese language.

Communicative Approach

Our goal is to make you able to speak Chinese after the class. All the topics and content are practical which based on real world conversations because we want you to learn language in context which will help you remember what you learn.  

Modular Design

We've divided each lesson into three parts: vocabulary, conversation and grammar. You could finish the vocabulary and conversation first. The grammar video is optional. You could learn if you need. All videos are in 10~15 minutes so you could finish during a coffee break.

Practice makes perfect. That's why we provide you with a set exercises after the video lessons. It takes just 5~10 minutes to finish each set. Besides, cultural expectations are important, especially in business situations. We select 9 topics to help you understand the differences between working in China and other countries. 

Who this course is for:
  • Beginners with basic knowledge of Chinese
  • Independent Chinese learners seeking structured self-study programs
  • Busy learners with 5-10 minute blocks of time
  • Entrepreneurs aspiring to do business with China
