When you become a paying member, you get a 24/7 lifetime (yes, your whole life!) access to Rocket Chinese from any computer, phone or tablet. We even have a podcast-style Interactive Audio Course that's perfect for when you're out and about.

Learn your way.

We all learn in different ways. That's why our team curates flexible courses that break the usual online learning mold and allow you to choose how you become a Chinese speaker. The result? You'll learn and remember more.

Learn faster.

The US Foreign Service Institute claims that it takes 600 hours of study to reach "general proficiency." We've accelerated that process by giving you 30 advanced learning techniques that are proven to help you learn more effectively.

Perfect your pronunciation.

Our state-of-the-art voice recognition system will help you fine-tune your Chinese pronunciation, until it's Weibo-worthy!

Our Culture lessons will help you understand key aspects of everyday Chinese life, culture and values. And we're always expanding and improving our courses to keep them fresh, relevant and fun.

Master the writing system.

Don't let the Chinese writing system hold you back. We've designed Chinese writing lessons to help you navigate the streets of Beijing with ease.

Go as deep as you want.

You only need about 150 words to become conversational in Chinese. We can teach you over 6120 words and phrases. And although we have over 360 hours of lesson material at your disposal, you decide just how much you want to learn.

Get the tools to stay on course.

Learning a language isn't always easy. We all know that. So we've created a ton of motivational tools and techniques that keep you inspired and focused.

Retain what you learn.

Our behavior experts have designed tools that ensure you understand all our teaching material. Our algorithms also identify the words and phrases you're struggling with so we can make sure they stick like glue.
