Description

This course was made with one simple goal in mind - to provide a journey into Mandarin that would be as simple and as efficient as possible. You see we understand that you are a busy person living in a busy world. We also were students of Chinese and we didn't like the approach that other course take. So we got all of our experience together and decided to make a course from the student's standpoint, rather than a purely academic standpoint. What results is a short course of about an hour and a half that makes the ancient language that is Chinese, this dragon, an easily approachable fluffy lizard. We know that lizards aren't fluffy but we needed a metaphor.

Who is the target audience?
  • People who don't have much experience with Mandarin, and who want to enjoy their journey.

Academic Scholar

Hello fellow learners. I moved to England at age 10, where I started learning English and ever since then I have been fascinated with languages. My greatest accomplishment was getting an academic scholarship to Wellington College. I am currently working on a Chinese course called Easy Peasy Mandarin. I would be extremely grateful if you took the time to support it and help me improve it.
