Chinese with Mike is a revolutionary Mandarin Chinese course taught through highly entertaining and effective videos by me, Mike Lǎoshī. (Some say I’m the best Chinese teacher in the world.) Each of my 120 lessons, which are taught in my spiffy garage, is comprised of a 10–15 minute video.

In addition to the videos, Chinese with Mike includes corresponding coursebooks, activity books, and audio with native speakers.

About the Chinese with Mike course

I never found a great textbook during my own Chinese studies. Sure, some books had good lessons here and there, but for the most part, they were boring and difficult to follow from one chapter to the next. Chinese with Mike is NOT a survival guide with random information flying at you from all directions. Instead, it’s a solid foundation that teaches you how to speak Chinese and also understand how the language fits together. As someone who had to learn Chinese, I understand which parts of the language learners struggle with, so I reveal all my insider tips that make learning it easier.  Basically, this is the course I wish I had when I was starting out. Some people even call it addictive.

Why will learning Chinese be a breeze?

  • I explain pronunciation with clear, familiar examples
  • I add interesting facts about the intricacies of language
  • I include lots of cultural tidbits
  • I recognize and explain thoroughly troublesome areas
