  About the Course and Us 

We are the first foreign-run Chinese (Mandarin) teaching company in China with a completely new approach to teaching Chinese. Our courses are constructed by foreigners for foreigners, and also include the wide experience of our Chinese teachers. 


In this course you will learn the fundamental concepts upon which you can easily build your Chinese language learning. By the end of this course, you will be able to conduct a simple conversation in Chinese with basic expressions, as well as the relevant reading and writing skills. 

 

Chinese is the most logical language there is and we hope to demonstrate to the world how to successfully navigate it. Through the ancient system of using pictograms, two words with separate meanings can join to form entirely new words. For example, learn the word for electricity (电), then add brain (脑) and you get computer (electric-brain). Replace brain with stairs (梯) and you get elevator (electric-stairs). 话 means speech and 'electric-speech' means telephone. Chinese is a clearly structured, logical language, and it is this logic that makes the learning experience feel like a puzzle that anyone can solve. 

 

We teach entirely through videos, where we first explain concepts and then show them in practice through dialogues with strangers on the street. Videos are shortened down to 1-5 minutes and to make sure you are paying attention we will give you quizzes between the videos based on what you have just learned. Pass it and move on to learn about the next concept. 


Each lesson consists of 20-40 mins of video content. This introduction course contains 4 lessons (2+ hours in total) and a little treat at the end... 

When you sign up we will also give you our course book that helps you review everything you learn much easier. 

Your instructor in this course is Felix Lattman, who founded Domino Chinese in Guangzhou, China, after spending some years in the city and teaching himself Chinese. To him Chinese made a lot more sense than it is generally credited with, and so he realised this language of 1.3 billion people should be very easy to learn as long as it is taught in the right way. In 2013, he started teaching Chinese to foreigners and within 3 months all of his students could converse in Chinese. 

With Felix's approach to teaching Chinese combined with the other Chinese teachers' experience in the company we hope to improve Chinese teaching everywhere in the world and make it fun, logical and much more like "a walk in the park" for anyone!

Hi! I'm Felix. In 2012, I moved to China to learn Chinese. None of the teaching methods suited me so I decided to teach myself. I had a different approach and I realised Chinese isn't as difficult as I had thought so I quickly progressed and started working on Chinese TV after only 1 year as well as passing The Official Chinese Proficiency Test (HSK 5) which typically takes 3 years in University. When I was done teaching myself I started teaching other foreigners and after only a few weeks we spoke Chinese in our lessons. My lessons were in high-demand so I started creating video courses to reach out to everyone. 

The method is called Domino Education and in addition to the unique approach it provides it also builds around short and entertaining videos to keep our students engaged. It also works on any languages so I've created an English course (for the Chinese market) and a Swedish course too. 

I've tested every course with real students and I genuinely believe Domino Education provides the best courses on the market and if you don't agree, I'll happily refund your money.

Hi guys,

My name's Ann Zhu and I'm the co-founder of DominoChinese. Together with Felix Lattman we've created over 100 hours of high-quality content that helps you learn quickly and keeps you engaged through the process. In our most recent success story Vanessa, who had not learned any other languages for over 20 years, was able to speak and write completely in Chinese after only 9 weeks. She also passed a test, HSK LEVEL 4, which requires at least 2 years full-time studies.
