Learn Chinese Tones and Pinyin the RIGHT Way
Many people are scared away from learning Chinese because it uses tones and sounds that are very foreign to English speakers' ears. We have developed a 26 lesson beginner program to teach every spoken and romanized Chinese sound in a clear and easy way, so that you'll be prepared and confident in learning new words and grammar!
Listening, Reading, Speaking, AND Writing
We believe that to best learn a language, you need to be strong in all four domains of language learning. The Lexikeet® system emphasizes each area of Mandarin Chinese and automatically learns what you're good at and what areas to focus on for practice. Everybody has different strengths and weaknesses, and no matter what yours are, we've got you covered!
Real, Permanent Handwriting
Some people are satisfied writing Chinese by typing it, and that may be all you need. There is an added joy, however, that comes from also being able to communicate by hand. Our unique handwriting system teaches you how to write Chinese correctly, the same as a native Chinese person would, correct brush strokes and all. No gimmicks, no computer-generated brush strokes; if you use our handwriting activities, you WILL learn to write Chinese correctly and keep it for a lifetime!
Robust Spaced Rehearsal
Lexikeet® Chinese isn't just online flashcards. Our unique spaced rehearsal engine caters itself to YOUR time and YOUR needs. Unlike good flashcard programs that only allow you to independently test one concept at a time, our system correlates your specific data, compiled from the four domains of language learning: listening, reading, speaking, and writing. We do this for every piece of vocabulary and grammar you learn, which makes tracking your progress both comprehensive and effortless.
Our language experts are constantly adding to our database of useful Mandarin Chinese sentences, readings, and audio files. When you're ready to add more vocabulary, you can find a topic that you like, pull up a reading, and add any words you don't know right from the page! That vocabulary will automatically be added to your study so that you can not only practice your comprehension, but pick up the vocabulary you need to improve it without having to refer to your notes or export files!
Do Grammar, Not Just Learn It
Native Chinese people never have to learn the names of complicated grammar concepts to use them, so why should you? Our growing library of grammar and situational activities are designed to help you experience HOW to use grammar in a practical way, so that well-formed sentences will start spilling from your mouth quickly and easily. And we'll keep adding more principles based on YOUR feedback on what you want to be able to do and say!
One of the best parts about Lexikeet® Chinese is that there doesn't have to be any stress. You might have bad memories of stressful homework and scary tests in school, but we mean it when we say that your only job is to log in and play for fifteen minutes a day. We'll keep bringing back stuff you need to review exactly when you need to review it, so you can just focus on the fun and learning!
Catering to Any Skill Level
