Did you know that there are more native speakers of Chinese than ANY other language in the world?

What opportunities would you have if YOU could speak Chinese?

Did you know that Chinese is actually one of the simplest languages to learn? I know that’s not what you heard. But it is, if you take this course. Here’s why:

There are only two aspects to Chinese that are difficult. We take care of both of them in this course, to keep things simple.

  1. The written system. Yes, there are thousands of characters in Chinese. And yes I know you don’t have time to learn all of them. That’s why we don’t use them in this course. Everything is written for you using the English alphabet. Learn to listen and speak first. Then focus on reading / writing later, if you’re interested in that.
  2. Tones. Chinese is a tonal language. Listen to lesson one to learn what that means. This is an AUDIO course, so you’ll get a LOT of input in Chinese, and there are always pauses for you to repeat what you hear. Keep doing this and you’ll figure out the tones and become a natural speaker!

How this course works: This introductory course features the first 20 lessons of level 1. Each lesson continues where the previous one left off. Later lessons review what was taught earlier.

If the material becomes too difficult, take a break and review older lessons. You also get downloadable PDF summaries of each lesson that you can look over on your own.

Testimonials: Here's what other students have had to say about Chinese Learn Online (CLO):

I just wanted to say that your course is excellent. I’ve tried other sites in the past, but the biggest advantage of your system is that it is progressive. It is difficult to tell with other programs whether you’re making any progress.

I’ve been studying Chinese for over three years already, and the lessons in the first level are already filling some major gaps.

I have a close Chinese friend who listened to some of the recordings - she said go with CLO. She constantly remarks on my great accent which she says is always the biggest problem.
