Ni Hao and welcome to Rocket Chinese!
I'm Lin, your Chinese tutor at Rocket Chinese.
You might be here because you've finished Rocket Chinese Level 1, or maybe you learned Chinese years ago and would like a refresher? Do you feel like you are stuck somewhere between a beginner Chinese level and an advanced one?
Don't worry! It was the same for me when I learned English. In fact, it is normal for every language learner to feel overwhelmed at times.
In those moments, it's important to keep going and fight the urge to give up!
Rocket Chinese Level 2 can help with that. Our system keeps you motivated and takes your Chinese to the next level - quickly and effectively!
Rocket Chinese Level 2 will help you:
With Rocket Chinese Level 2, you'll learn to adapt your Chinese to different situations, extend your Chinese vocabulary, and get insights into the culture and the way the Chinese language works.
Rocket Chinese is different from other online language learning programs out there! It teaches you how Chinese truly works - its dynamics, its culture and its structure. We've developed this award-winning language-learning system by observing polyglots (people who speak several languages). And believe me, all of them were once where you are now. But they kept going - and if they can do it, you can do it!
Read on to discover how easy we've made it for you to learn Chinese.
