Whether you’re visiting China, building up your career, or learning Chinese to better understand its history and culture, we’ve got you covered! Our lessons range from beginner to upper intermediate levels; you can start from any lesson or level. Start by learning how to say “how are you” and “thank you” in Chinese, and by the end of our Chinese course you’ll be able to tell a local about your interests and hobbies, and share your opinions on a variety of topics.

For an English speaker, Chinese can seem like a difficult language to learn, but with challenge comes opportunity. Learn how to read and write with characters or with Pinyin. We’ll be teaching you Mandarin Chinese with simplified Chinese characters. Don’t worry if you can’t read the characters to start with, you can easily switch between characters and Pinyin in the user interface.

Remember that learning a language is a challenge and a long term goal. We’re here to help you reach that dream faster and easier. It doesn’t happen overnight, but once you know a language, you know it for life!
