Chinese Made Easy L1

Understand 65% of Chinese in 10 hours



Start learning Chinese with a completely new approach that will both make it fun and easy. In these two hours you will learn:   

- to read and even write simple stories completely in Chinese 

- to have a simple conversation – introducing yourself and a bit more 

- the basics of this language, so that you have something really solid to build on further 

  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.

building blocks in 9 reviews

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

Explanation of building blocks is very helpful.

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.

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.

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 Thank you Felix you are a great teacher!

谢谢! The "building blocks" approach works great.

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

teaching style in 8 reviews

If you find you like the teaching style you will get a lot of value out of this.

Felix is very entertaining, I love his teaching style, he's making the learning experience very enjoyable and the many funny mnemonics make it way more easy to remember the Chinese characters, their pinyin versions and their actual English translations.

The instructors employ a very effective teaching style Simple and fun approach to learning, recommending for opening your mind to different styles of learning.

I don't really understand his teaching style, and I don't understand why I'm learning random words like "knife" and "fish" in the first few lessons.

Perfect teaching style Its easy chinese and very helpful.
