Your Chinese learning starts!
After more than 7 months of listening and searching, I’ve found the methodology that works best for me to learn Chinese myself via self-study Chinese materials. Here are some of the reasons why:
– Overcoming the Gap with Progressive Chinese Lessons from the Mandarin learning resources. Each Chinese lesson is a continuing buildup from the preceding Mandarin lesson and a preparation for the next Chinese lesson. There are no sudden gaps between Chinese lessons or chasms between levels. Discrete and isolated Mandarin lessons and levels are not to be found at the Chinese learning materials.
– Lesson Roadmap. Each Chinese lesson is summarized on a Mandarin lesson outline, and this serves as a roadmap to show you exactly where you are in the progression of Mandarin lessons. With this roadmap in hand, you don’t have the sense of aimlessly wandering around from one disjointed Chinese lesson to the next. You can learn Chinese yourself at the beginning if you’re completely new to Mandarin, or you can easily trace the Mandarin lesson outline to find the starting point that’s most appropriate to your level.
– Full Transcripts. The self-study Mandarin resources provide full transcripts of all their Chinese lessons. As Mandarin lessons progress to more advanced levels, and an increasing amount of Mandarin is spoken throughout the lesson (and not just in the prepared dialogues), the value of having a full transcript with translations at hand will prove to be tremendous. In addition to the full transcript, there’s a more summarized version of the transcript, which provides the lesson dialogue, vocabulary, and additional Mandarin learning materials. What the self-study Chinese resources give away for free on their website is about what other self-study Mandarin materials provide on a premium subscription basis. What the Chinese learning resources offer on a premium subscription basis – such as the full, complete transcript – is something you can’t even get on some other Self-study Chinese materials.
– Active Participation. While the podcasts on some other self-study Chinese materials make you a passive listener, the Mandarin learning resources offer you more opportunity to actively practice while you listen. Most of us study Mandarin myself better by actively practicing rather than by just passively listening.
– Premium Tools. The premium online tools are simple to learn Chinese yourself, are well integrated with the Mandarin lessons, and offer additional opportunities to practice what you’ve learned in order to develop stronger communication skills & retention.
– Audio Lesson Dialogues. Chinese learning materials provide audios of the dialogues for many of the Mandarin lessons. Though the audios are quite simple in their production, I find that listening to the corresponding Chinese lesson which checking the detailed, well-structed transcripts, helps me to study Mandarin myself, understand the language and the culture at a deeper, more intuitive level.
– Extra Features. There are also many other extras, such as Mandarin lesson notes and hints & tips for each Chinese lesson. New online tools and additional features seem to appear all the time.
– Responsiveness. self-study Mandarin resources are truly responsive to listener feedback in a way that I haven’t experienced at other Mandarin learning materials.
– Reasonable Price. The price of self-study Chinese materials is about half of what some other major self-study Mandarin materials charge, though the overall methodology is more effective. For me, this made subscribing to the Chinese learning resources a no-brainer.
I’ve summarized some of the key reasons why I decided to support Self-study Chinese materials with a premium subscription of the Mandarin learning resources.

In preparation for a trip overseas, I looked for months trying to find Chinese learning materials that would help me learn Chinese myself. So many were complicated to navigate or had really boring lesson plans. Some podcasts had audio that was not clear or were chanted by dull teachers. Some are just lists of vocabulary or phrases that you memorize, without context. A lot of bad teaching. I had almost given up and then found the self-study Mandarin resources to study Mandarin myself.
What a difference! The Chinese lessons are brief, memorable and logically arranged. The audio is clear and the narration friendly and very informative. The amount covered in each Chinese lesson is just right for an adult who wants to learn Chinese yourself. The teachers are very responsive to suggestions and to questions about the Mandarin lesson content.
I strongly suggest that new learners sign up for the very reasonable Mandarin learning materials. By downloading the self-study Chinese resources, you can always study Chinese yourself, at hand and the podcast notes are great. Obviously I’m a happy customer and recommend the site to all Chinese learners. For me, the pace of the programs is really fine: they move along quickly enough to keep me thinking “forward” and pushing my concentration, but also with explanations in English, sidenotes, points of interest, etc., that give me chance to breathe let the ideas sink in.
Although I continue to listen to a couple of other podcasts of self-study Mandarin materials (and especially to learn Mandarin yourself with a book I found), your podcast series is the centerpiece of my Chinese learning resources.
I think your Self-study Chinese materials are actually quite good. I wish that I had the Mandarin learning resources when I was younger.
I’m serious about improving my spoken Mandarin, so I subscribed to the Chinese learning materials. I actually like your self-study Mandarin resources because the Chinese lessons are short and concise. I like your both transcripts and audios.
I feel that the Self-study Chinese materials are really the BEST Self-study Chinese materials!
I studied Mandarin at UCLA for one summer and the National Chengchi University (NCCU) in Taipei, Taiwan for 3 semesters. And though I feel that both UCLA and NCCU language instruction was truly excellent, I also feel your Self-study Chinese materials are equally superb and even superior in many ways. If I could do it again, I wish that I could learn Chinese myself, before going to Taiwan.
Also, as I’m a very busy person, I like how the Self-study Chinese materials are very versatile for me to study Mandarin myself that fits my hectic schedule. I listen to lessons of the Self-study Chinese materials while I eat lunch in my office at work, and review online in the evenings at home. The interactive online learning is one of the best I’ve seen. I also download the Self-study Chinese materials to my iPod, and I listen to lessons in my car, at the gym, or when I’m waiting for business appointments. For a person who cannot travel to a Mandarin speaking country for language instruction, with Self-study Chinese materials, you can truly immerse yourself in many Chinese language situations in your home, office, car or practically anywhere.
I can learn Chinese myself or review topic or vocabulary that is important to my life. I can use vocabulary I know I would use right away instead of studying a topic that have little immedate relevance to my real life.
Thanks everybody at ChineseTutoring Lessons for making Self-study Chinese materials accessable to everybody to study Mandarin yourself in an easy, fun, and affordable way!
I truly love your Self-study Chinese materials, and i would recommend everyone i know to book your Mandarin learning resources! Great Self-study Chinese materials!
