Learning Mandarin Chinese online has never been easier!

Why would you learn Chinese anyway?

Nowadays, knowing Chinese has many advantages across all fields of interest, from gaining cultural insight to finding better business opportunities, from making lifelong friendships to travelling and communicating with the locals.

There has never been a better time to learn Mandarin Chinese than today!

The most widely spoken language in the world

Chinese is the most widely spoken language globally, with approximately 1,197,000,000 people speaking Chinese, of which 873,000 million speak the Mandarin dialect. It is used by 70 per cent of all Chinese speakers over a large geographical area that stretches from Yunnan in the southwest to Xinjiang in the northwest and Heilongjiang in the northeast. It is one of the six official languages of the United Nations, under the name “Chinese”.

Learn about the history and culture of China

Chinese history and culture are among the richest and certainly the oldest globally. China is renowned for producing beautiful novels, short stories, poetry, and excellence in film. Reading great Chinese biographies and watching short movies about the history of China provides a greater understanding of the language.  There are also modern movies and series that range from comedies to dramas and horrors that are definitely worth a watch.

Travel to beautiful countries

If you can speak Mandarin, “the world is your oyster,” as they say, when you may find yourself travelling across Southeast Asia. You will have the confidence to talk with the locals in Chinese, and you might even be invited into their homes for home-cooked food and experience real Chinese life. Travelling worldwide is always more enriching when you know the local language and when you make friends with local people.

Learning Mandarin is easier than you think

The language is more accessible than romance tongues like Spanish or French because Mandarin Chinese shares a similar grammatical system with fewer commonly-used words: no conjugation in whatever form, no plurals, no tenses, and no subject-verb agreement. There are over 80,000 Chinese characters, but only 3,500  are used in conversation. It could be regarded as a more logical language.

One of the essential things you need to do to understand and communicate like a native Mandarin speaker is to learn to recognize and use Chinese characters and familiarise yourself with the basics of word formation and usage.

Our Dictionary’s main advantage is that instead of throwing random characters at you to memorize, it takes the time to break down each of the words into more basic elements. You will learn about the word’s etymology, stroke number, and pronunciation, practice writing it, and read and listen to sentences that best exemplify how natives use the words in everyday contexts. You can choose every time which word to learn next, according to your other Chinese learning materials such as courses, novels or your last seen Chinese movie.

This method helps you develop a better understanding of the morphology of the Chinese language and enables you to learn about the history and evolution of the words of your pleasing which helps you speed up your learning game.

A Boy and his Dragon

Once upon a time, a Little Boy was living in a village near the woods. One day, a Dragon came out of the cave secluded in the middle of the forest and began to relentlessly follow the Little Boy, always breathing on the back of his neck, burning the young boy at his slightest misstep.

The child received refuge in an old Temple where there were no mirrors allowed, and it was forbidden to speak of life before entering the sanctum. Ancient books, hidden rooms with unimaginable treasures and beauty beyond comprehension, became part of the boy’s new life.

Time went by until, one day, the now old young boy accidentally glimpses his own reflection in a pond. The Dragon smiled back.
