Addictive learning
Mike Laoshi (Teacher Mike) will astound you with his unparalleled ability to make learning Mandarin Chinese fun and easy. Be warned, his teaching style is highly addictive, so if you have a family, career or social life, you may want to put those on hold for a little while.

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. Through a blend of 60 short, highly addictive video lessons on DVD, a Coursebook 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?
Season 3 Learn to tell people the milk is in the refrigerator and your dirty clothes are under the bed. You'll also learn about jobs, dreams and measure words.

Season 4 You'll learn some new adjectives, adverbs, prepositions and conjunctions, and best of all, you'll get to watch Mike Laoshi's ballet lesson and retirement press conference.

Season 5 This was the season that was never meant to be, but Mike Laoshi was lured out of retirement. You'll learn how to make comparisons (I am smarter than you) and use superlatives (This is the best Chinese book ever!). Also talk about the past and the future, and use transitions to put events in sequence.

Why will learning Chinese be a breeze?
· Mike builds confidence through his logical step-by-step design of the course
· Mike explains pronunciation with clear, familiar examples
· Mike adds interesting facts about the intricacies of language
· Mike includes lots of cultural tidbits
· Mike recognizes and explains thoroughly troublesome areas
