Like a rockstar teacher. Excellent for beginners. Entertaining too!

Dr Licheng Gu, Programme Director at Northwestern University

The curriculum has logical links that shield beginners from the unnecessary complexities of Chinese grammar while providing a solid understanding of how language is constructed. It is definitely new, and it definitely works.


Learn Chinese with Mike Absolute Beginner Coursebook and Activity Book Pack Seasons 1 & 2

Addictive Chinese learning in a great value complete pack from the online video sensation Mike Laoshi.

Through a blend of 60 short practice lessons and audio, you’ll acquire essential Chinese with confidence. More importantly, you get a little one-on-one time with Mike, as he makes learning Chinese ridiculously easy-and fun!

Season 1 This covers pinyin, the four tones and writing system using Simplified Chinese characters, common words, phrases and typical conversations. In no time you’ll be able to talk about yourself, your family, your friends, your job, your home, your dogs and cats.

Season 2 If Season 2 wasn’t included in the book, you wouldn’t be able to tell people you can speak Chinese, you like to play basketball, or you want to eat beef fried rice. More importantly, you wouldn’t even know how to ask permission to use the bathroom! Without Season 2 you wouldn’t get very far in life.
