Learning a new language can be tough. You need to familiarize yourself with new patterns of speech, new ways of thinking, and many, many new words. Chinese is no different. However, the way many courses teach Chinese is ineffective, because they bog you down with the thousands of characters. This course aims to teach you to speak Chinese with confidence by focusing on real life usage of the language.

Contents and Course Overview
Part 1 and 2 is now available for you to access. Part 3 – 6 will become available in the next few weeks.
     Communicating in Chinese is relatively easy if you focus on oral practice first. In part 1, you will develop confidence in your ability to learn Chinese. You will learn common words and phrases and how to use them effectively.
     Reading Pinyin correctly with the proper tones is vital if you want to be understood. A bad pronunciation is very difficult to correct in later stages of the learning process.
     The second part of the course will teach you Pinyin. It may seem a little boring, but it will save you a huge amount of time in the future and will help you be understood by others.
     Question make up a large chunk of conversations. In part 3, you will learn how to ask common questions, such as when, where, who, what, and how, as well as yes-or-no questions such as “Have you been to the market today?”
     In this section, you will learn what to say in common situations. These include: going out for a meal, going shopping, and calling or emailing someone.
     Now that you have a solid foundation, you want to start making up your own sentences that are suited to your individual needs. In part 5, you will start to use different tenses and sentence structures.
     In the final part of this course, you will receive sound advice on how to continue from here. You will also get my list of recommended resources, as well as a verifiable certificate of completion.
By the end of the course, you will enjoy speaking Chinese. You will be confident that you can continue to progress in your new language. You will be able to create new sentences by yourself.  Most of all you will have started with the right pronunciation. This course will provide you with a solid foundation for further studies.

✓ Produce simple sentences in Chinese for daily life.
✓ Ask a variety of questions using different sentence structures.
✓ Learn new words by yourself with the correct pronunciation
✓ Read and write pinyin, a phonetic writing system used by native Chinese speakers when they start to learn Chinese at school.


• I recommend you obtain a notebook and a pen or pencil or a note-taking app so that you can take notes. This will enable you to review the information quickly and to use it when you meet a Chinese person.

Language Instructor
I’ve always lived in Asia, and started to learn foreign languages very early. I began my journey with English, when I was just 2 years old, and then continued with Chinese when I was just 3 years old. I have been living in China for the past 8 years. Because of my fascination with the different languages, I wanted to become a language instructor. So I decided to study linguistics and applied neuroscience at the University of Science, Art, and Technology (U.K.). I obtained my Master degree in Education in 2015, and I have been teaching English and Chinese ever since.
