Nǐ hǎo, Robert! I am so glad that you liked our Chinese lessons! Xièxie! Please feel free to contact us if you want to know more about our full courses.
Nǐ hǎo, Zheng Laoshi. I am wondering if it’s possible to learn Chinese without having to learn Pinyin? I find it difficult and it feels as though I’m learning another language on top of learning Chinese.
I’m considering taking the Chinese Character course. Would it be difficult without taking the Pinyin course first?
Thanks in advance.
Gabby, nǐ hǎo!
Welcome to Litao Chinese and sorry for this late reply.
If you want to speak and understand Chinese, you must learn Pinyin. Because Pinyin is the Chinese phonetic system and the basis of speaking and listening skills. If you really just want to read and write, it’s fine to only learn Chinese characters.
But I suggest that you should still learn Pinyin, which will be very helpful for your future study.
Just let me know if you have any other questions.

Zheng-Tao. ni hao, I just tried the first lesson. I like it. I will try more and then will most likely buy. My first goal is to learn Pinyin and first of how to read Pinyin. What should I buy and how much I would pay in $US? I live in the USA, Washington DC area.
Which browser you advice to use in the USA? I used Chrom, not bad, may be any better suggestions?

Zhèng Tāo, Nĭ hăo
I have completed your pīnyīn course and am very happy indeed.
I have been trying to learn Chinese for a long time, but have always come up against the difficulty of ‘hearing’ and pronouncing the different tones.
Your course has solved my difficulties wonderfully, I am extremely grateful.
And now it is on to the Elementary Course 1!
Nǐ hǎo, Bill!
Good job and keep working on it! I believe you will feel much more confident and comfortable to use Mandarin Chinese when you finish our HSK Level 1 course.
If you have any questions, just let me know!
Thank you very much for a really well structured and helpful course – just finished.
As a mature student, I really appreciate the parallels you make with other languages, and the ability to go back to the audio and transcript to practise the sounds.
I look forward to the Elementary course next.
Corina, nǐ hǎo!
Congratulations on finishing the Pinyin course! It’s good to know that this course has been helpful to you.
Please feel free to let me know if you have any questions in the future.
I’ve just taken a brief refresher after finishing the Character Level 1 course and I find the quiz much easier this time. I feel like it’s already sinking in and I am ever more confident to continue in my studies. I will be recommending this course to everybody interested in learning Mandarin Chinese.
As Confucius said, “温故而知新(wēn gù ér zhī xīn)”, which means that you can always acquire new knowledge from reviewing the old.
I would appreciate that if you could recommend our course to more people.
