Skritter’s Complete Guide to Learning Chinese: An Overview

Each chapter covers one of the three factors that determine how much Chinese you learn, so if you want to make rapid progress in the language, you should optimise all three.

The final chapter discusses learning Chinese in a digital world, exploring both opportunities and challenges related to digital reading and writing.

The guide is suitable for complete beginners and advanced students alike, although different students will take different things from the guide. We have also included exercises to help you implement the advice in your learning routine.
