CLO 4th Anniversary

Today marks the 4 year anniversary of Chinese Learn Online. Although it may look like we have been dormant for the last little while with promised updates that haven’t come, there has been lots going on behind the scenes. Specifically, there are now 4 projects that I’m currently working on. Here is an update on all 4:

1. CLO iPhone app – the app was ready quite some time back, but we’ve run into all kinds of problems with the final feature that requires user to be able to download additional content onto it. I’m hoping it will be ready to submit to Apple by the end of this month – cross my fingers there. The first version will have the first 20 lessons of the course available. We will then add more lessons as there is demand.

2. New CLO website – the website is live and operational and all current members now have access to it (if you are a current subscriber and don’t, then please email me). There are still some details to be finalized before I’m ready to open it live to the public. There are a lot more resources on there both for subscribers and for free users. I’ll provide more details when that is ready.

3. Spanish website – I’m working on a Spanish version of CLO for Spanish speakers who want to learn Chinese. I’m hoping that this tool will be ready for launch by the end of this month. We will begin with the first 30 lessons of CLO, and then add additional lessons as there is demand.

4. New online Chinese course – I’m also working on a new online course that uses a very different approach from CLO. The content will be completely different and the progress will be more systematic. So while CLO will stay in its existing form as a self study course, this new course will use a more guided approach, with teachers who monitor your progress every step of the way. I’m hoping this site will be ready for launch before the end of the year.

  1. The info about the new site sounds very exciting. I finally managed to fit more Chinese into my university class schedule for next term, so beginning over the Christmas holidays I’ll be working hard on Mandarin again.
    How is the development going? ETA still before the New Year?

  2. Hi Gary,

    The site is live for existing subscribers. I’m still fine tuning some smaller details for free users, before making a general announcement. Yes I would still like to see it up and going for everyone in the next month or so.

    Expect to see an update announcement on various projects later this week!

  3. Excellent post. I was checking constantly this blog and I’m impressed! Very helpful information specifically the last part :) I care for such info a lot. I was seeking this particular information for a long time. Thank you and good luck.
