About the Course and Us

We are the first foreign-run Chinese (Mandarin) teaching company in China with a completely new approach to teaching Chinese. Our courses are constructed by foreigners for foreigners, and also include the wide experience of our Chinese teachers.

In this course you will learn the fundamental concepts upon which you can easily build your Chinese language learning. By the end of this course, you will be able to conduct a simple conversation in Chinese with basic expressions, as well as the relevant reading and writing skills.

Chinese is the most logical language there is and we hope to demonstrate to the world how to successfully navigate it. Through the ancient system of using pictograms, two words with separate meanings can join to form entirely new words. For example, learn the word for electricity (电), then add brain (脑) and you get computer (electric-brain). Replace brain with stairs (梯) and you get elevator (electric-stairs). 话 means speech and 'electric-speech' means telephone. Chinese is a clearly structured, logical language, and it is this logic that makes the learning experience feel like a puzzle that anyone can solve.

We teach entirely through videos, where we first explain concepts and then show them in practice through dialogues with strangers on the street. Videos are shortened down to 1-5 minutes and to make sure you are paying attention we will give you quizzes between the videos based on what you have just learned. Pass it and move on to learn about the next concept.

Each lesson consists of 20-40 mins of video content. This introduction course contains 4 lessons (2+ hours in total) and a little treat at the end...

When you sign up we will also give you our course book that helps you review everything you learn much easier.

Your instructor in this course is Felix Lattman, who founded Domino Chinese in Guangzhou, China, after spending some years in the city and teaching himself Chinese. To him Chinese made a lot more sense than it is generally credited with, and so he realised this language of 1.3 billion people should be very easy to learn as long as it is taught in the right way. In 2013, he started teaching Chinese to foreigners and within 3 months all of his students could converse in Chinese.

With Felix's approach to teaching Chinese combined with the other Chinese teachers' experience in the company we hope to improve Chinese teaching everywhere in the world and make it fun, logical and much more like "a walk in the park" for anyone.

We analyzed reviews for this course to surface learners' thoughts about it

so far in 16 reviews

So far, Chinese seems a lot easier than Japanese (for example, where Japanese has three pronunciations for "person" using the same letter, Chinese has one) but at the same time is explaining a ton of what's going on in the Japanese language as a whole.

recommend this course in 9 reviews

Very easy for everything to stick in my mind, couldn't recommend this course enough It is useful, I like the breaking down of characters, but Felix really likes to hear himself talk.

I highly recommend this course to everyone aspiring to learn Chinese - and have a lot of fun at the same time.

I would recommend this course to anyone!

I definitely recommend this course to anyone looking to learn Chinese, or even if you just want to learn something new, or are simply bored, because this is the most fun course I've ever taken on Udemy (besides their other courses, like Level 2, which I'm currently taking).

Overall, I would highly recommend this course to someone who hasn't even looked at Chinese characters for a while (like me) and to people new to the language as well.

I can recommend this course to you.

And of course I would also recommend this course based on Felix's engaging and often funny teaching style.

I learned a lot and highly recommend this course.

building blocks in 8 reviews

I enjoy understanding the building blocks of the language and constructing words from them - vastly superior to learning lists of words without understanding.

Really great building blocks Good good thank you Some chapter stories are not really meaningful, contains words before they are taught, the conversations are not 100% practical, something more realistic would be nice My last review was during the introductory course, and I was very impressed.

The building blocks of learning each part of the character makes it much easier to remember the reasoning behind each word instead of memorizing each character one by one.

With the real-world examples and exercises alongside as the progress not to mention the fun, has helped me to understand the basic building blocks on the Chinese language Fantastic concept of “building blocks”.

The "building blocks" approach works great.

What's really good is that you will learn all the building blocks that make up characters, which will make it easier to remember them and learn new words in the future.

I am starting to recognize characters, their meanings and as Domino Chinese says "the building blocks" to other characters.

Great way to learn Chinese Some of the videos will not load Just started the course and it's fantastic.

I think this is a smart way to learn Chinese.

A much better way to learn Chinese than studying on your own or any slow-paced course.

Interesting and fun way to learn Chinese.

I find Felix's method of teaching the Chinese language easy to understand and an excellent way to learn it.

This course provides an engaging, approachable, and interesting way to learn Chinese from scratch.
