Hello! Super excited about learning Mandarin!

Hello everyone!
I am new here, I am so excited for finally learning more mandarin. I find the videos soooo useful. I am trying to learn since 2019 on and off. All started after watching a Chinese drama that I loved!

I would like to ask if you give face-to-face classes and how to apply and attend? I am interested in going to China (when possible) to be forced to speak. I hope you are all well and have a great rest of the week.

Hi Miriam!

Welcome to ChinesePod! I hope you will enjoy your time on the website:)
I’m glad to hear that the videos are helpful for you. In case you have trouble deciding which lessons to study, make sure that you start with the courses that is suitable to your level!

I love Chinese drama too! Which Chinese drama did you watch?

Unfortunately we don’t offer face-to-face classes, but you can ask us any questions in the comment section and on the forum, we will try our best to answer you. You can also send emails to me at if you have any academic related inquiries!

Happy learning!

Hi Rebecca,

Thank you very much, I will look for the courses. I watched the story of Yanxie Palace, and I cried from the beginning until the end!
I am now watching : The story of ming lan , which is great too!

Thank you very much for your help. I am still trying to understand my Mandarin level, but I am sure I will get there eventually.


Hi Miriam,

I also love 延禧攻略 (Yanxie Palace)! It’s a touching show with comedic elements so I enjoyed it:)
If you’re still not sure about your Chinese level, you can take the placement test on the website and the result would indicate which Chinese level you’re currently at. After that, I believe it would be easier for you to choose the lessons!
