Why should I learn with you?

If you're looking for an easy and practical way to learn Chinese, then this is it. You can learn in your own time from the comfort of your own home or office, without the hassle of having to attend night time classes or learn a bunch of rules that you will surely forget.

Why not just go to Chinese language classes?

This depends on what your goal is. Certainly if you want to learn everything there is to know about the Chinese language, then university classes are a good way to go.

However, if you're looking to learn practical Chinese and have the ability to converse as quickly as possible, then my video lessons is the far more effective method. Further, I believe that language learning should be fun and my video lessons teach you what you need to know rather than just handing you a Chinese textbook.

What is the best way to learn Chinese?

One of the most effective ways that a student can learn Chinese is by learning in small but frequent sessions. That's why if you've tried learning unsuccessfully in classes, you can blame the boring and long sessions, the exact opposite of what's required for successful language learning. And especially for a language like Chinese!

The LearnMandarin Video Course is premised on the principle. Each lesson of the full Learn Mandarin course are usually between 10 - 15 minutes long.

About Us

I first started to teach Mandarin privately during my spare time while I was studying at University in Sydney.

I continued to teach Mandarin while I worked full time (at Deloitte and then Suncorp) both privately and in classes.

Frustrated with the lack of good and practical material for learning conversational Chinese, I started this website in 2006 and offered the Learn Mandarin audio course which
eventually evolved into an online video course. Since then, tens of thousands of people have learned to speak Mandarin through our Chinese training courses.

I am the author of several best selling Chinese Language Books. You can connect with me on my Facebook Page here.

My hope is that the Learn Mandarin program will show people that it's not actually "hard" to learn the Chinese language and enable more people around the world to enjoy learning this beautiful language and to develop the ability to speak Chinese.

If you have any questions or comments about the program, I would love to hear from you. You can email me on support (@)

I wrote a short 10-page eBook just with a few tips on ways to learn Chinese (which became Amazon's Top 10 Bestseller for Chinese Language Books for a few weeks). It's not strictly just for learning Chinese so you can apply the same principles with any other language. You can buy it on if you have an eBook reader.

(If you are on the Amazon Prime program, you can borrow the book for free)
