Any of these sound familiar?
✔︎ You want to learn Chinese but you have no idea where to start.
✔︎ You've already been learning Chinese for a while, but aren’t sure if you're making any real progress or not.
✔︎ You feel like your progress is too slow.
✔︎ You find yourself being misunderstood a lot when you speak Chinese
✔︎ You lack confidence when interacting with native speakers.
After 16 years both learning and teaching Chinese, we have figured out one key thing that makes these problems go away...
1. Gain confidence and motivation
Success breeds motivation. Being understood by native speakers and understanding them successfully provides that dopamine rush that will spur you on in your learning. Its a virtuous circle of confidence —> speaking more —> improving faster —> more confidence.
2. Communicate more effectively
Did you know that pronunciation is far more important than grammar early on? Even with a limited vocabulary, you can still communicate well as long as you pronounce the words properly.
3. WOW Native Speakers.
An incredible accent will not only get you lots of compliments, it also immediately makes people more responsive to you, which in turn increases your likelihood of meaningful interactions, as well as...
4. Open up opportunities
Great pronunciation leaves a deep impression on the people you speak to that can positively influence areas such as your career, finances, and personal relationships 😉.
5. Boost Your Listening
Because of the exposure you've had to every sound of Chinese, you will be able to identify the words you hear more accurately straight away, reinforcing your grammar and vocabulary along the way.
6. Read & Write Faster
Connecting the sounds of Chinese to their written "pinyin" spelling will allow you to read and type Chinese. Guess what happens when you start reading, writing and listening regularly?...
7. Reach fluency MUCH Faster
All of these wonderful benefits mean that you will be able to identify words you hear and read FAR more accurately.
Just as a flutter of butterfly wings in the east can cause a tidal wave in the west, solid pronunciation early on will start a chain reaction that will get you to fluency a lot faster, and with less stress along the way.
You might be thinking:
“Wow, didn’t realize how critical pronunciation is! So where can I get good training?”
Years ago we had the same question.
Sift through an ocean of content of varying quality across the internet and try to figure it out on your own. 😒
We thought, "this is annoying", and decided to fix that problem.
We sifted, filtered, separated the wheat from the chaff, and systemized a course.
Then we tested it through thousands of hours of live teaching to hundreds of Mandarin learners.
We had to prove it worked, and we did.
Finally, we created a course that teaches you everything about Chinese pronunciation, and made it suitable for any level. To put it another way...
We made the best way to start learning Mandarin all in one place!

I just want to say that this is one of the best courses I've ever done. Motivating, inspiring, educational, practical, entertaining! So glad I did, it really made me aware of many pronunciation points to pay attention to, as well as other general language aspects. I am going to start the Mandarin Blueprint course. Thanks again guys!

I look forward to starting The Mandarin Blueprint Method!
To anyone learning Chinese, I have just bought that course and I must say it is already amazing. I would never think about this way of learning.

I started taking the pronunciation mastery course at the same time as a university distance learning course. My tutor is Chinese, and has high praise for my pronunciation - It's all down to this course from MB! Thank you!
I have just finished the Pronunciation course and would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to learn Mandarin Chinese. The videos are clear, concise & entertaining, and if you ever have a question Luke & Phil are very quick at responding. I've also started the character course and I'm confident that the method is providing a holistic way of learning Chinese. It's great not having to figure it out on my own!
I recently completed the Pronunciation Mastery course, which is essential to your success. Luke is an expert at pronunciation and will put the needed tools in your Mandarin toolbox.
Furthermore, their customer service is top notch. They are very responsive to their clients and have a genuine desire to see you succeed.
I am still working on the Pronunciation Mastery, and have learned so much! I'm very impressed with how thorough everything is, how responsive the teachers are any time I have a question, and how supportive the community is. Feeling VERY grateful to have stumbled upon this course accidentally and glad to have begun my adventure in learning Mandarin!
