Mandarin Blueprint

By Mandarin Blueprint

Mandarin Blueprint is the most ambitious online Chinese learning curriculum ever attempted. Not only because it integrates pronunciation, characters, vocabulary & grammar acquisition materials, but more importantly because it teaches how to relate everything you need to know about Chinese to your personal lived experience. Everything about your past is a potential connection you can make to Mandarin, and we're experts at helping you find them. Not to mention, Chinese is a super cool language! Once you get several characters under your belt, you're going to have a paradigm shift about language. Meaning is expressed using entirely different component parts, and we've only become more fascinated by it the deeper we've delved into it. Join Luke Neale & Phil Crimmins as we explore not only Chinese but how connecting Mandarin to our past lived experiences helped us learn in a fraction of the time.
