Why Chinese with Mike?
Chinese with Mike is 100% new and breaks with traditional Chinese curricula. Mike's humour, mixed with his logical, step-by-step approach shields learners from the unnecessary complexities of Mandarin Chinese. In this complete learning package you'll get 60 short, highly addictive video lessons on DVD, a Coursebook, an Activity Book and audio. You'll acquire essential Chinese with confidence. More importantly, you get a little one-on-one time with Mike, as he makes learning Chinese ridiculously easy-and fun!

What will I learn?
This is a solid foundation course that teaches you how to speak Chinese and also understand how the language fits together.

Season 1 This covers pinyin, the four tones and writing system using Simplified Chinese characters, common words, phrases and typical conversations. In no time you'll be able to talk about yourself, your family, your friends, your job, your home, your dogs and cats.

Season 2 If Season 2 wasn't included in the book, you wouldn't be able to tell people you can speak Chinese, you like to play basketball, or you want to eat beef fried rice. More importantly, you wouldn't even know how to ask permission to use the bathroom! Without Season 2 you wouldn't get very far in life.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The coolest Chinese teacher out there. Totally rad!! * ConfusedLaowai.com *
The curriculum has logical links that shield beginners from the unnecessary complexities of Chinese grammar while providing a solid understanding of how the language is constructed. It is definitely new, and it definitely works. * Dr Licheng Gu, Programme Director, WCAS African & Asian Languages, Northwestern University *
Like a rockstar teacher. Excellent for beginners. Entertaining too! * Socialmandarin.com *
As an instructor, I have found Prof. Hainzinger's teaching material was very practical; it was very easy to be inserted into our classroom activities; because of its structural style and its accompanying video * Yuxiang Liu, Lecturer in Chinese, EALC, The University of Chicago *
