Soon, I’ll officially start developing my website solely focused on learning Mandarin Chinese, please keep an eye on the link for exciting content Learn Mandarin Chinese

Mandarin Chinese has an undeserved reputation as being forbiddingly difficult to foreign learners. I want to assure you that with the correct strategy and hard work, you can achieve your goals, unravel the mystery behind the script, and even learn to use them effectively in your communication with native speakers.

I wish to express my deep admiration for Eileen and her Youtube channel ‘Mandarin corner’ and website mandarincorner.org. I recommend her channel and teaching methods knowing you will benefit from and enjoy her work immensely. Please find the links below;

I would also like to recommend an old friend from my early days in Chongqing, Ed Barton. He learnt Mandarin from complete beginner to a master’s degree in Mandarin translation in the space of five years, and I’m sure you will find his approach to teaching Chinese useful and interesting.

Chinese is Easy

Finally, whatever your level and motivation, I wish you luck on the wonderful journey and discovery of learning Mandarin Chinese, a language among the top most fascinating and rich in history and tradition in all of human history.
