How to Achieve Mandarin Proficiency FAST Without Burning Out or Giving Up

There are 6 unique phases within The Mandarin Blueprint Method. Each phase focuses on a key element of Mandarin and builds seamlessly upon one another in a linear, unified learning experience all the way to literacy and fluency.



Before learning any language, you will make much faster progress if you first learn how to produce, identify and read every syllable. Our video course Pronunciation Mastery teaches you everything you need to know, and it comes free with any subscription of The Mandarin Blueprint Method. It can also be purchased individually.
Character Building

Character Building

Using our patent-pending mnemonic visualization system "The Hanzi Movie Method", you'll learn how to read, write and pronounce any Chinese character in a matter of seconds.
Vocabulary Building

Vocabulary Building

As you speed-learn characters, you will “unlock” new words with increasing frequency. We guide you on how to acquire these new words easily by creating mnemonics based on their intuitive word structure, and drawing on your life experience.
Sentence Building

Sentence Building

After you've built up a foundation of Chinese words, we will show you carefully crafted sentences that almost exclusively contain characters and words you have already learned. By following this step-by-step process, you will be reading and understanding Chinese in a matter of hours.
Paragraph Building

Paragraph Building

Now things really start to get fun! On top of sentences, you'll start unlocking entire paragraphs filled with conversations and opinions, all of which you'll be able to read and understand without help! This deeper, more engaging context makes learning grammar an enjoyable and natural process, instead of a mind-numbing slog through a series of textbooks.
Story Building

Story Building

In this final phase, we'll start introducing longer-form content created by our native Chinese writers. Once again, these are expertly designed using words and characters you have already learned. By reading and listening to all of this content daily, you'll find your Mandarin skills increasing faster than you ever thought possible!

Made By Learners, For Learners

Phil Crimmins
Luke Neale

We both learned Mandarin – “one of the most difficult languages in the world” – as a second language. As adults. Reaching advanced fluency took us years of study and many thousands of dollars. Over the years we discovered the best tools, and invent our own techniques to make Mandarin easy and fun. Now we’ve put all that knowledge into a 100% unique, patent-pending system to learn Chinese. A blueprint for English speakers who want to learn Mandarin Chinese.

Making Mandarin Fun

Now, I’m learning characters, pronunciation, and tones much faster, with better recall, and more fun.

If you want to learn Chinese in a systematic and enjoyable way, Mandarin Blueprint is the way to go.
