10 Reasons You'll Love ChinesePod
ChinesePod focuses on language that you will actually use if you visit China. Thousands of lessons are available covering almost every situation you might find yourself. Radio production techniques and a conversational style are used to make the lessons more accessible and engaging.
ChinesePod brings you authentic language from the streets of Shanghai. Our unique team of native Chinese teachers and American students (who have already reached a high proficiency with Chinese) allows us to deliver cultural insights in a fashion that makes sense to a Western audience.
Get the most out of the lessons by examining the core dialogue, key & supplementary vocabulary, expansion sentences and grammar points. Complete the lesson exercises when you want to test your understanding.
Get more out of your lessons by practicing with one of our teachers. If you already have your own teacher, ChinesePod offers complimentary accounts to help them study along with you. Browse our class options.
To reinforce what have you have learned, it helps to apply your new skills. Upload a written assignment from the website or record a video of you performing a lesson task. Submit this task to your teacher and get feedback on what you are doing well and where you need to improve.
Ditch the computer and study on-the-go with your iOS/Android tablet or smart phone. The more time you can spend connected to your studies, the better!
All Chinese-terms can be saved to your personal vocabulary list. These terms can be reviewed with flashcards on your computer or mobile device. You can also export this list to your favorite flashcard program. There is no need for a written flashcard ever again!
ChinesePod offers special programs and support for universities and high schools. Tell your teacher about us! Find more information here.
It can be hard to keep your study motivation strong. Get involved with the world's largest Chinese student community (1,000,000 strong and growing!) and ask questions, answer questions or just hang out.
