We're so convinced you'll love Domino Chinese so before you pay we're giving you this 2-hour introduction course free of chargeLinks to advanced courses in the last lecture.


Start learning Chinese with a completely new approach that will both make it fun and easy. In these two hours you will learn:

- to have a simple conversation – introducing yourself and a bit more 

- the basics of this language, so that you have something really solid to build on further 



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 a computer (electric-brain). Replace the brain with stairs (梯) and you get an 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.

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.
