Beginners' Bootcamp - Learn to Speak Chinese in 8 Weeks

Learn to speak Chinese in a supportive and fun environment with group practice sessions to start communicating and connecting right away!

If you are ready to invest in yourself to take your Chinese further with guided and structured live training from me, and group practice sessions to ensure you are sounding correct, then I donโ€™t want you to miss out on this offer.

Introducing Beginnersโ€™ Bootcamp - Learn to speak Chinese in 8 Weeks where I will teach you 20+ essential phrases to help you start conversations so you can start communicating and connecting right away.

We will have 1 teaching session a week where I teach LIVE on YouTube (private streaming). You will be able to interact in the chatbox or on our Discord channel.

Followed by a group practice session right away so you arenโ€™t left on your own to hope that you are making the right sound. You will receive live feedback during our group sessions.

Then a few days later, there is another group session to review and practice speaking again. This 2nd group practice session is set a few days later to give you enough time to study and review.

During the week, I will assign homework to help you stay on track. There will be audio homework as well to receive additional feedback on your pronunciation.

All the live training videos will be available for you to watch whenever. So even after our program ends, you will still have access to our training videos and worksheets.

In addition, you will receive updates for free if I create new videos for this course.

By the end of the program, I hope you would have:
  • gained confidence in speaking
  • overcome the fear of making mistakes
  • learned how to hold a short conversation
  • fell in love with learning Chinese even more! :)

Program Overview

  • Systematically learn 20+ essential phrases so you no longer have to wonder what to learn next
  • 8 LIVE teaching sessions where you can learn the key concepts and words that are we covering that week (unlimited replays)
  • 16 Group Practice Sessions - Practice speaking during group sessions so you can be as clear as possible
  • Homework assignments to complete to ensure you are on the success track
  • Milestone Goal: Hold a 2-minute conversation with me
  • Last but not least, have a lot of fun learning and speaking Chinese :D


I have never run a group coaching program before, except for the free challenge that we have just completed. I want to be 100% clear that this is one of the reasons why this group coaching program is priced at $297 instead of $497 (a 40% discount).

Since this is my first time running a group coaching program, I might add or adjust the content based on our learnersโ€™ progress and feedback. I have a list of core concepts that I want to make sure we cover to ensure you have a solid foundation, but the final product will be influenced by your feedback :)

Check out my free 10-Day Beginners' Bootcamp to see how I structure my programs and how I teach ^^ You can watch all the replays here until the end of October.

If you are ready to invest in yourself, make sure to enroll as soon as possible to get the most bonuses!
