How to Use
Here are the steps on how to best use the resources on this website.
If you have an iPOD, subscribe to our free podcast from iTunes, Or you can download old lessons from here. Absolute beginners should start at lesson one. Otherwise, go through our course outlines to see what words are taught at each lesson, and continue on from the lesson you feel most comfortable at.
Review new characters, words and dialogue sentences with their audio. Watch videos for most dialogues. If you have trouble understanding the lesson, consult the Complete transcript. Read any notes or listen to the podcast review. Use the flashcard program to review the new words.
Try out the sentence builder exercises to see if you understand the grammar. Then listen to the exercises where available and submit an answer to the question. For more practice, try a One on One session with one of our teachers.
Going through these steps will ensure that you’re progressing through learning Chinese. Each lesson is meticulously prepared to make sure it reviews previously learned vocabulary while teaching a small amount of new material each time. By listening to the podcasts, pronouncing the words out aloud, reading the lesson notes and watching the videos, you are using three of your senses in the process, which greatly increases the efficiency of your learning in the long run.
