How to Learn Chinese Fast

Did you know that you may be wasting a huge portion of your time learning Chinese due to inefficient learning methods? Let me tell you how you can learn FASTER.

It's all about a new technique called Confidence-Based Repetition. As much as we'd like to think that we can improve our Chinese by watching movies or just being dumped in the right country, our brains are proven to best absorb new language concepts one-at-a-time, in small increments.

And I don't mean just learning word lists one-at-a-time. I mean building your actual vocabulary and character-writing skills from the ground up. Say goodbye to ineffective Chinese games and boring Chinese textbooks.

Why Brainscape Chinese Works

Confidence-Based Repeition (CBR) is the system of introducing concepts incrementally, at gradually increasing difficulty, while repeating the tough concepts in the right intervals of time based on YOUR confidence levels. CBR helps to optimize your study time so you can learn more in less time.

There's no reason you should be hearing totally unfamiliar strings of gibberish fly in one ear and out the other. You should be building yourself up by scaffolding one concept at a time.

The problem has traditionally been that there are NO apps that apply the simple CBR method. Creating a comprehensive curriculum based on CBR takes WORK, and most app developers are more concerned with flashy software than with actual learning sciences.

UNTIL NOW.

Brainscape has worked with our partners at MandarinX, along with learning scientists from Columbia and Yale Universities, to create the most complete, scientifically optimized curriculum of Chinese vocab, sentence practice, and character drills, tailored specifically for the mobile environment.

In the process, we have created the first web and mobile app based around Confidence-Based Repetition. Check out our 40-page white paper on our website, explaining the cognitive science behind why our method works.
