Zhōngwén From the Get-Go

When we moved in together, one of us spoke Mandarin, the other English (were we crazy?) By blending Chinese and English (Chinglish), we bridged our language gap and started using Chinglish with our students—with some surprising results!  

 Now we’re using the same method we learned ourselves to help people of all levels work their way to fluency.

Here’s why Chinglish works:

Chinglish is Instant

You don’t need endless drills or a big vocabulary to use Chinglish. With less holding you back, you can speak Mandarin from day one.

Chinglish is Intuitive

You’ll use everyday Mandarin inside English conversations, gaining a feel for Mandarin grammar and expanding your vocabulary naturally.

Chinglish is Stress-Free

Our method isn’t about perfect Mandarin, it’s about real, conversational Mandarin. You don’t have to worry about always getting it right, which oddly enough, helps you learn better!
