"Experience Chinese" Accelerated Methodology

Fourteen years of teaching and research into linguistics and memory science enabled us to develop the “Experience Chinese” methodology, which increases a Chinese learner’s speed by 200 - 300%. Our methodology focuses on full-immersion learning, conversational fluency, cross-cultural communication, spaced repetition and active recall.

Full Immersion Learning

Research shows the fastest way to learn a language is through full immersion and teaching the language in a way it will eventually be used. We forgo textbooks and instead focus on real speaking and responding in Mandarin.

100% Personalised to You

Not every Chinese learner is learning for the same reason and at the same level of ability. Our 1-to-1 classes are 100% personalised to your individual abilities and learning goals.

Learning Science Based

Our learning approach, “Experience Chinese”, is based on decades of research into learning and memory science, and our own experiences teaching over 210 000 hours of lessons over 14 years.
