Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day;
teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.


Hi! My name is Olle and this is my website. The above ten characters sum up Hacking Chinese neatly, because while it’s nice to give people fish to eat (words to learn, grammar to study, culture to absorb), I think it’s even more important to teach people how to fish (becoming independent learners).

In the podcast episode, Kris and I talked about a lot, but only scratched on the surface. If you have any questions about something I said in the podcast (or anything else, for that matter), feel free to connect on Twitter or just send an email to editor@hackingchinese.com. I also provide some suggestions for further reading below.



Hacking Chinese has been around for ten years and contains almost 500 free articles, so here are some highlights:

Thank you for stopping by! I hope  you enjoyed listening to the Actual Fluency podcast episode as much as I did recording it. Good luck with your studies and see you around!

Best wishes,

Olle Linge
