How The Course Works

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 advanced proficiency.

Pronunciation Mastery

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 will teach you everything you need to know, and it comes free with any subscription of The Mandarin Blueprint Method.

Components & Characters

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.


As you speed-learn characters, you will “unlock” new words more and more often. As these new words become available, we guide you on how to acquire them quickly and easily by creating connections to them drawn from your personal memory banks.

Simple Grammar

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.

Graded Reading

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.


In this final phase, we’ll start introducing popular stories 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!

This is NOT a click-and-buy ‘you’re on your own now’ type course. This is interactive, with people who want to learn, bridge cultural gaps, and excel Thinking about learning Mandarin? THIS IS HOW. It’s FUN. Seriously, I was prepared to put in hours of work, but it’s not even work! I ENJOY it.

I don’t think I’ve ever been so completely absorbed in anything in my life, not in decades anyway. My family is worried about my mental health 😀

Truly grateful for your effort in creating Mandarin Blueprint for us. Thank you a thousand times.

I love the Mandarin Blueprint Method, it is one of a kind. I have been struggling with my Mandarin learning journey before because studying the characters was difficult. Now that I am using the MBM, I am enjoying the Chinese characters more. Once you get the hang of the method, learning the characters becomes enjoyable. I highly recommend it to those who are serious about learning Mandarin.

An excellent language learning program. After trying to learn Mandarin on and off for 15 years, I’ve made more advances in the past 3 months than everything prior to this.

I can’t think of a better way to learn Chinese than Mandarin Blueprint, literally since the first lesson I took I understood everything with such ease thanks to the short and amazing explanation I received. I can surely say that I enjoy every single second of every lesson. 🙂

Luke & Phil have developed a truly amazing system of learning Chinese. And, what’s even better is that they have made it FUN to learn! I’ve gone from thinking that Chinese is the most difficult language in the world to learn to realizing that it is probably one of the easiest. Thank you so much to both of you for putting together The Mandarin Blueprint Method. It really is life-changing!

I cannot really describe how great this technique is and how amazing these guys are at explaining it! I cannot recommend this highly enough to do it justice. If you have ever wanted to learn Mandarin but have felt intimidated by it (who hasn’t, lol) these guys can take away that fear so easily with their method!

I’ve just finished the foundational Pronunciation Mastery course after about three weeks of mostly daily work. The content was very well presented with a nice mix of instruction, inspiration with native speaker reviews interspersed throughout. While I feel a bit overwhelmed, Luke and Phil are very reassuring about moving forward on the next phase of my Mandarin learning journey using their method. The pricing is very reasonable and with the free trial period, you can’t go wrong. Onward!

Outstanding course: detailed but approachable, with lots of supporting materials. Extremely pleased! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I cannot recommend this course highly enough. I have lived in Hong Kong for 12 years, spent time in Chine, have a Chinese wife and speak OK Mandarin. The pronunciation course alone was worth every penny. But when it comes to characters – I can only say … marvellous.

Made By Learners, For Learners

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.

Luke Neale

Luke struggled early on with traditional learning methods and very quickly sought after more effective techniques online. Eventually, through a lot of trial and error, found far better ways of acquiring Chinese, using various tools and memory techniques.

Luke’s strength is his native-like pronunciation; having placed a strong focus on it early on.

Phil Crimmins

In Spring 2017, Phil graduated from Sichuan University with a bachelor’s degree in the Chinese language, and he was also awarded an “Outstanding Thesis Award” for his dissertation titled “Chinese Acquisition Methods from the Perspective of a Mandarin Learner.”

Phil’s strength in Mandarin is reading and writing; having started his study with a heavy focus on Chinese characters.
